+1 My pistols don't like Remington ammo at all. CCI , Federal and Winchester work just fine.

I purchased a case (10 BOXES) of federal 525 value pack last March and have run the majority through two Mark III with only 2 misfires and the misfires were consecutive due to a dirty gun.

My Mark lll's eat pretty much everything I feed them. But I do get an occasional mis-fire on pretty much all of the above mentioned ammo. Who knows why. My Buckmark is a little finicky. I had a Walther p22 for a month. It didn't like anything. Traded it for another Mark lll.

If you got no misfires with the Mohawk, 4th from the left on the 4th shelf from the top, it's because you didn't try to shoot it.

Bought a brick at a Woolworth's or W.T. Grant over 30 years ago and I'm still complaining about it.

Quite an ammunition selection, I particularly like the dogbone bricks. If you have found a store somewhere that actually sells some of that old inventory in 2011 just tell me where.

I started collecting "full" .22 ammo boxes in 1961, when I got my first .22 rimfire rifle, a Remington Model 512. Don't know why, but I just kept one box out of every brick I bought and stuck them in an old .50 caliber ammo can my uncle Bill brought home after his hitch in the Marine Corp, after serving in Korea. Been collecting boxes (only full ones) when ever an old one that I don't have comes along.

As for the brown Mohawk box. My buddy and I both bought Remington Nylon 66 rifles during our junior year in high school. I can't tell you how many bricks of those Mohawks (at around $5.25 per brick) we put through those two rifles shooting rats in the local open-pit dump. We taped flashlights to our rifles and just after dusk the fusillade from those rifles would begin. One in the chamber and then 14 rounds fed into the tube at the back face of the stock, open sights and piles of rats. I don't remember having that many mis-fires with that ammo though and those Nylon 66 semi-auto's were very hungry rifles.

Guess I'm not the only one with some S&W ammo. Still have a partial box of their 9mm hP. You do have a bit of "older" ammo there.

i have always had occasional problems with different bulk pack ammo. going well back to the 70`s and i think it was fed or rem bulk packs then, good plinking ammo, often could shoot a whole brick threw my 10/22 or mk I but every now and then you would get a bum batch. i always hunted with mini mags, if those are giving you problems then id be more apt to suspect the gun and not the ammo. that said i also think you can run into ammo even in the better brands that is just a bad batch, something that slipped by in qc. I think .22 ammo and its priming system is much more prone to misfire. One such problem ive seen is shooters actually oiling there ammo. that or allowing penetrating oil to contact the ammo, weather its because the gun is dripping wet with it or just oversprayed. oil or any moisture will get into a rimfire case pretty easy and kill or weaken the primer. i always shoot a relatively dry .22 with only a drop or 2 of oil where its absolutely needed. bore dry and mags dry.
