.22 ammo test

Cool and accelerated video so we don't have to listen to all the unnecessary yak yaking like in some videos.

Of course, YMMV with same or different kind of guns and .22 ammo

Which brands/rifles have you tried and does your experience show about the same or different results?

    An impressive video, impressively well produced. And certainly not the results I would have expected.

    I killed a Zombie earlier today with my .22 M&P, nice little group in the forehead with Auto Match

    .22s are/can be funny/ picky, even the same models using the same brands can have different results.

    One will say his 10/22 shot group will look like a shotgun pattern and next will swear by such and such a brand of ammo.

    I do think there has been more lot to lot variations and QA/QC issues with .22 ammo since the shortages than I can remember from before, though.

    So far have shot CCI Standard and Winchester Super X . Have been several times with Auto Match the 1st and 2nd Round do not fire. What about Thunderbolt?

    I have never had a Thunderbolt not fire I can remember, dirty chamber and maybe not feed on some semis, but always went bang, when chambered. Some say their $$$ bolt rifles really like them, be it as it is............I dunno?
