I mostly shoot CCI Mini Mags as my Walther pistoling is picky. Second place goes to Remington GBs in the tub.

I've become quite a fan of the Remington Golden Bullets 36 gr. They have proven to be extremely reliable (knock on wood!!!), especially in the .22 handguns we have here. I've noticed that the handguns can be pretty sensitive to ammo issues, and failures to extract or eject can be common.
But, we just don't get those with the Remington GB's.
If I need to make sure the handguns are reliable, I'll switch to CCI Velocitors. They work very well, and have enough energy to ensure good functioning, although I don't know that they count as bulk ammo..

I agree on the 10/22's, they will shoot just about anything, and ask for more.

CCI Mini Mags. Shoots accurate in every 22 I own.

The cheap Hi-Velocity bulk stuff, like Remington, Win., or Federal in my Mks II and III. I replaced the recoil spring assembly in both with the Volquartsen unit and the stiffer spring for HV.

I like CCI Ar tactical. Not the cheapest but accurate, relatively clean, consistent and perfect feeding in my Mark IIs. I caught a sale at Midway and got some for silhouette shooting.

I find it very subjective, even for me. Each of my 22s is different.

Here are some tests I performed with a 10/22 on a variety of ammo that had I had had some success with in other guns. Some bulk and some not. I had previously been using mostly Federal Champion for bulk shooting and Mini Mags for target and squirrels. Some are 5 shot groups (lighter colored pictures) and some are 10 shot groups all at 40 yards. Vertical groups are generally due to wide velocity variations, horizontal groups are generally due to imperfections in the bullet.

I might mention that I tried some Aguila high velocity ammo later and it was ALMOST as accurate as the standard velocity. It is currently $2.49 per box of 50 at Academy Sports. As a result of these tests, I used the SK in a precision rimfire match and tied for first place. And I have switched from Mini Mags to Aguila HV for my squirrel load, and for rimfire steel matches.

I've been having a lot of luck in my S&W 617 using Federal BYOB. Accurate and reliable. For my Mark IVs I use Blazer. The price is right, at about $19.00 a Brick.

I just plink with a Walther PPK/S in .22 and it likes CCI Mini Mags and Remington GBs. I currently have two 1,400 round buckets of GBs, and still working on a large multipack of Mini Mags. I use either of these in my Henry Mares Leg even though it shoots just about anything. I just keep things simple. At the cost of these two brands it makes little sense to me to use something else. Things may change about the price or availability change.

Aguila Super Extra, works perfectly in all my semi autos. Acuuracy is really good and no FTF like you get with Winchesters and Remingtons.
