Remington Hollow points .22 (aka Golden Bullets) - 3,150 Rounds $82 shipped

Gander Mountain® > Remington .22 Long Rifle Rimfire Ammunition

525 bulk pack on sale $17 each

$20 off $100 coupon: WELCOME20

buy 6:
6 x 17 = 102 - $20 = $82 for 3150 rounds!
$0.026 each bullet

For comparison:
Walmart Federal bulk brick- 550 for $19 = $0.0345 each


Warning:
People on this board mention that Golden Bullets jam in their Mark II/III

Is this deal worth putting up with FTF/FTE?

(I go thru a brick each time at the range with my Mark III 22/45. I havent had a jam with the Walmart Federals yet.)

My MK III doesn't jam with Remmie "golden bullets", but they're not as accurate in it. It likes the Federal LIGHTNING ammo and CCI "Green Tag" best. Since the former is $1.77 a box and the latter costs about $75 a brick. . . . no brainer.

Lot of people here on the forum seem to like the CCI Minimags best.

Hey, if they don't work in your MKIII it will be a good excuse to buy a Single Six.

My 10/22 doesnt like these THAT much. Yeah they are alright, but my H001 doesnt have a problem. If they werent remington, I'd buy it in a heart beat.

Most of my problems with Remington 22 ammo comes from Thunderbolts and cyclones. I think the Golden bullets might be fine.

I just have a lot of FTF's with the Remingtons. About 10%. Most will fire on the second or third try - but that is a pain to rechamber them. I definitely would not hunt with them as they are too unreliable.

I have been told that rough handling in shipment will cause rimfires to have a high number of FTF's as the primer can be broken away from the rim of the cartridge. Don't know if it is true, but if so, the last brick I bought must have been dropped off the roof of the UPS distribution center.

I like CCI's.

I've had problems with Remington Golden Bullets and probably won't buy them any more. I still have couple of bricks I need to use up. The ones I have you can actually spin the bullet around easily. That seems to be a big issue when using them in semi autos. Never had any problems with CCI Blazer and Mini Mags. I've shot those for years and never had a problem.

In my experience I have only had a problem with one brick of Remington golden bullet's. All the other bricks fired fine. My only complaint is the dang gold flakes they leave all over my fingers.

I have used Rem Golds for more years than I like to admit to . I buy the solids instead of the hollowpoints . I have had no more trouble with them than any other type .I must be lucky . I do shoot a lot of stingers in my rifle though . I use the gold solids for Grouse and bunnies I want to eat . The stingers for things I want to destroy .

I'm a little late to this party....I recently bought a .22 conversion kit for my Glock 26 and they recommend Remington Golden's (among others) and NO Thunderbolts. They have a strange mixture of good/bad rounds. I've stuck with the Rem. Golds (550/525) packs, as recommended, and no problems. Winchesters are frowned upon! as are any hyper vel. CCI mini mags. are ok.

I like to rebarrel and restock 10-22 rifles and shoot them at long range. Lately, I had a mean jamming problem with Federal 550 bulk. I switched to Remington 550 and the problem was much less. I had a stock of PMC Zapper with 40 grain solid bullets and when I went to that round, the problem went away totally.

We shoot clay pigeons laid out on the 200 yard berm and the Remington's shoot 1- 1 1/2" higher at 200 than the Federals. The difference is audible, too. Often, an individual round will sound muffled with the Federals and point of impact is less, too. That suggests less consistency.
