Wow - down to 2.8 cents, including shipping. Would be a very good idea to stock up if anyone is short right now.

Post-election worries aside, this is a very good price regardless.

Fwiw, Remington Thunderbolt is down to just 2.6 cents, from at least two different vendors:

Cheap doesn't always mean good, Having owned a number of .22's through the years I found that a number were very selective about the ammo they digested flawlessly. No use buying ammo, if it won't run your guns.

Definitely, especially with .22 rimfire stuff. This Thunderbolt isn't premium stuff, but it runs 100% in my 10-22, the sig mosquito, and the rimfire AR 4 1/2" pistol, and runs a hair over 90% in the AA glock conversion.

Not perfect stuff, but I can live with it for a lot of things. The best all-around I've found is mini-mags - they've run literally 100% in every gun I've tried them in, including the conversion kit; and being plated, they're better for suppressed use than the thunderbolts.

Second only to the mini-mags (in my guns at least) has been Federal's GameShok copper-plated round nose; load #710 or 810. They're the same load; the 710 is the cardboard 50-pack and the 810 is the 100-round plastic package. They're usually cheaper than mini-mags, but functionally run 100% in every gun I've tried them except the Advantage Arms glock conversion; and even in that they run 97%, so they're very good for the price. They're not high-precision target loads, but for my purposes of ringing steel, they're more accurate than necessary.

Definitely agree with you though; rimfires are notoriously finicky. That's why I have a spreadsheet showing details of which guns like which round; it's the nerd in me showing itself...

When I bought my Kimber .22 Conversion kit for my Colt Gov't Model, I ran around the city and bought 20-22 different varieties of .22 to chrono. The goal was to find which ones were capable at taking down steel "B" zone plates and steel "gophers" at 20 yds. I only found 2 that would give me the velocity required and work flawlessly in the gun. Stingers and Velociters were the winners.

Right at a year later, and evidence of the faulty prognosticator still looms large...

I just got an email that www.targetsportsusa.com has minimags for 4.8 cents per round after a mail-in rebate; your choice of either RN or HP.. Thatís a very good price on a VERY good load.

Wow, lead stuff for 2.66 cents or copper-plated for 2.84 cents...

Makes me wish I had more free time to blast .22's...
