Thumbs up Guns & Ammo Magazine article on SR22...ammo report

After picking up the latest issue of G&A specifically for the SR22, I was reading about different types of ammo they used during their tests and the resulting groupings of tested ammo. According to their report, the Remington Golden Bullet placed the closest groupings at 2.68". I hadn't shot Remington out of the SR22 due to some issues with Remington's ammo in the past, so I had been using Winchester Super X's, CCI's, and Federals. So for kicks, I picked up a box of the Golden Bullets at my local Academy store, 525 rounds for $17.99 which places it much cheaper than the Winchesters and the CCI's (but a little more than the Federals).

After shooting a few hundred rounds through it, alternating between all of the ammo listed above, I have concluded that G&A's testing was pretty accurate. I shot much better groups with the Golden Bullets than I did with any other of the ammo. I even had my buddy load the clip for me and not tell me which one I was shooting until afterwards.

In conclusion, I think I'll be using these Golden Bullets a lot more than the others as the price is too good not to and seems like the best ammo for the money.

Also, it should be noted that out of 450ish rounds of Golden Bullets shot through the gun, I did not have one failure to fire or one failure to eject. It just kept on going like a champ.

That's impressive! I can not wait to get my 1981 standard back from Ruger.
I will need to get a box of the Remington. I just can not afford to shoot the 9mm & .380 as much as I like to shoot. That's where the .22 comes in!

Maybe Remington has improved their quality. I've gotten a couple boxes of their GB's and have had 10 to 20% duds from my 10/22 as well as my 22A.

Just finished my box of Remington Golden Bullets yesterday, and all 550 went pop! They cycled 100% and were very accurate and seemed to be consistently powered. My Mom and Dad went with me to the range and got to shoot my SR22 and both loved it! My Mom has never shot a real handgun before and this gun was the perfect trainer pistol for her. My Dad's impression...his favorite gun he's ever shot!

I love to shoot it as well, and I couldn't be happier with my choice.

Stay safe, and have fun

I've only been shooting .22's since November (unless you count when I was 4 years old with my grandma!)

So far I've only used the Remington Goldens, CCI Mini Mags and another type of CCI's (actually, haven't used them. they're still in the boxes!)

I've noticed that the Remington Goldens are much more accurate than the CCI mini mags in my 10/22 TD.
