Golden Bullet Bucket O Bullets Good or Junk?

Like I said last night I am a newbie...... Is the Golden Bullet Bucket O Bullets any good or junk? I have a 10/22 and a S&W AR-22 I want to use them in, the gun shop where I buy from says the are great...but the reviews online are not so kind.

So I will take your advise.

Thanks,
Sid

I stay away from any .22's with Rem on the box...if I remember correctly your S&W has a list of recommended ammo in the owners man. Mine shoots the Win. & Fed bulk ammo just fine

They give me more duds than other bulk ammo, and the "golden" gets all over everything. You have a sparkly gun, hands, and face to clean.

I do not like the Remington Golden Bullets. They definitely cause problems with some auto's and even the Single Ten revolver will bind with them (not uniform rim shape). The bullets wobble in the case. However, I have had no problems with them in my S&W M&P 15-22.
I don't buy them anymore, but if I ended up with a good deal and it would have to be a really good deal, I would buy them for the 15-22.

I bought a bulk box of them for my 10/22...Junk!! They were all over the place. not many failures just not accurate at all. I could barely get them on the paper. My 10/22 just did not like them, It will however eat CCI all day long.

Try em and see...

I have gone around with those several times and love/hate them...

IMO...the best thing to do is start out with 40gr solid nose Mini mags...the cycle better than any I have used and ALWAYS fire with a good strike...

The Federal Game Shok in the same 40gr cprn bullet is nearly identical to the mini mag in every way...just as good...about the same price...

If those don't cycle well or fail to fire then you need to look at the gun itself for problems...

I swore off the goldens with my 10/22 as it came from the factory so much so that I had 400 left in the 550 box I bought in the 90s as recently as two months ago...

In the meantime I resolved other problem(s) like replacing the factory extractor...

Ran out of ammo...decided to use them...they ran fine for the most part...as well as any of the other cheap bullets...the BLAZERS give me lots of feed problems...other than that they all seem to have about the same failure rate...

For the last two months the goldens have been my only option and have gone thru nearly 2k rounds of them...not my favorites but at this point in time not as bad as I once thought...

If you gun runs great with mini mags but not other cheaper bulk hv ammo then just stick with what you like best...if the goldens run well for you with only a few failures to fire or an occasional stove pipe at roughly half the cost then they are fine for practice or whatever... but I wouldn't hunt with them...simply because none of the bulk ammo with possible exception of Blazers which are reliable and accurate but don't feed for me...I believe it is the type of wax they lube the bullet with...it is harder than the wax on other/better bullets like mini mags and game shok...

If stove pipes are a chronic problem in a factory 10/22 with any bullets try a sharp claw extractor...made a huge difference for me...

I've never had any luck with Golden bullets. Very dirty and alot of failuires with it. I stick to Federal bulk, Winchester M22's if you can find them and CCI mimi mags.

I don't care how Remington packages their .22 "Golden Bullets" they still are some of the worst .22s out there.

The "New and Improved" Golden Bullets didn't give me any issues. And this was messing around with promag magazines. The thing I hate is the gold powder, I think they gave me lung issues after 200 rounds. I wouldn't use them indoors :S

Shoot them all the time, no problem either in my 10-22 or my S&W K-22 made in 1957.

Rem golden

They are one of the fewbullets that will work flawlessly in my High stardard.22 sharpshooter from 1974.
I had fail to feed with Win and Fed brands but can shoot the golden bullets all day long with no issues at all.
Note: anyone that has Golden bullets that they hate please contact me as I am starting a home for wayward golden's and would gladly adopt your neglected rounds

I ran 100 or so through my Remington 597 a couple weeks ago- not one ftf or ejection problem. The jury is still out for me re: accuracy though.

Ahhh, you beat me to it. I hate Golden Bullets, but like I said in my previous dissertation on this topic, my M&P 15-22 eats em fine.

Here is a picture I took a few months ago when several of us were having problems with this bullet in our Single Ten revolvers. The bullet would not fit into the cylinder far enough due to too much curvature on the rim (too fat) This would cause the rear of the rim to bind against the frame of the gun. The bullet on the left is the defective one.
