federal value pack 22lr

Anyone have experience with Federal "value pack" 22 ammo? It's 36 grain 1269 fps and $15 for 550 rounds.

I'm wondering if it's reasonably good stuff or garbage.

I've had real good luck with it in my 10/22 and MKIII Hunter. Very few FTE or FTF and I've gone thru several thousand rounds. It seems to be accurate enough for anything I need it to do. I think it's a good buy.

Definitely worth the $15 price tag. I have put at least a thousand of these through my 22/45 with only 2 duds.

The 550 rd bulk packs are good stuff, when you can get it.
The Federal Auto-Match shoots a little more accurate in some of my guns. 325 rds for the same price.
Federal Champions shoot very accurate in my new Single-Six Hunter.



Wish I could find some more of it !

A lot of folks here and elsewhere use the Federail bulk religiously. I buy it when I can get it but if it's advice you are looking for, buy some and try it. It's cheap enough and gets far more praises than complaints.

Thanks to all,
I bought 1100 rounds and I'm thinking maybe I should go back and buy another 1100. Can't wait to get out and shoot!

The Federal Bulk Pack is my .22 ammo of choice for all my .22 firearms except for my Walther p22, which only likes CCI Mini-Mags.

I have used them for years. Walmart always has them. I stockpiled some many years ago when they were $9 for the 550 box. Though $15 is not too bad since ALL ammo is going up. They always shot amazing groups with my 10/22. I have not tried them in my 77/22 because of the winchester wildcats shooting so great.

They are my favorite. over 5k rounds not one dud. Best price out there that I have found. Used to be $13.47 4 months ago at WM now $15.47 is best I have seen.

I bought some over the weekend at The Dixie Knife & Gun Show in Raleigh and they worked perfectly in my P22 yesterday. No problems at all with feeding, firing or ejecting. It was difficult to tell them apart ( in looks or performance) from the CCI Mini Mags I had shot before. $19.95 a box.

I use the Federal Bulk almost exclusively in my MKIII512 and my Chiappa 1911-22. Other then an occasional dud, it's been great stuff for the price (used over 40,000 rounds in the past two years).

Saw the bulk pack here in Miami for $26.95 at the gun show. I need to move.

Some of the ammo was way to high for my blood, one guy had Fed Bulk Packs for 20 bucks. I stock piled a little while ago, I use mine in my P22, MKIII target 5.5, and my GSG 5 with no problems.
