CCI AR Tactical and the 10-22

I was lucky enough to score a brick of 22lr at cabelas and the later some 22 subsonic. My question is this "AR Tactical" from CCI any good? I have other ammo to work with, but before I crack the box (who knows maybe some guy locally might trade some "regular" 22LR for this stuff).

I found in my Ruger MK II 5.5 bull barrel at 50 feet, the CCI Tactical produced visably tighter groups in a side by side test between CCI Mini-Mags, Winchester bulk white box, CCI Standard, and Federal Auto Match. The Federal Auto Match finished second, and the CCI Standard, third. Got mine at Cabelas as well, and would not hesitate to buy it again, if we ever see 22LR again available.

I have run through several boxes of the CCI tactical witha S&W M&P 15-22 and it eats them all. No issues with 4 or 5 boxes. If you can find them yes buy them and enjoy.

Those rounds are designed to be fired out of AR .22lr uppers/conversions, which I guess can be picky on ammo. I would imagine they have higher QC than some of their other ammo.

Never shot any of it myself, always wanted to try some.

I haven't been able to buy any decent 22LR ammo since December While I'd like to have any decent ammo right now I've heard lots of good about the Tactical stuff. I read it was specifically designed for the M&P15-22 and similar AR style 22's. I just wish ammo, of any kind, would come available.

I got lucky last week at the local Walmart. Got 3 boxes (375) of the CCI tactical. Put about 100 through my 1022 TD. No problems and I liked the groups I shot with the fixed sights. With the low availability of ammo, buy them.

CCi Ar Tactical .22s are one of the best rounds we have seen at our gun club, especially for those who have "fussy" autoloaders which have problems shooting many other brands of shells. They have a different bullet profile than other CCI .22s and are designed for autoloaders. They use to be about $23.00 for 375 rounds, sometimes alittle less before the "panic" started.

CCI Tactical & Ruger 10/22

My question is I have a ruger 10/22 and I bought CCI 22lr tactical but it reads AR tactical? Is this ammo good to use in my 10/22?

Yes. They are great. Bought some last week and put about 200 through my 1022 takedown without any issues.

Just watched a detailed review on a 10/22 and the guy shot better with regular mini mags over the ar tactical.
