Default Just ordered 15,000 rounds of .22 ammo

A couple of friends and I just ordered 15,000 rounds of Remington .22 LR subsonic ammo from Natchez, I wonder if I will be on some government list now?

X'2 on Remington FTF. I run suppressed only in .22, and have also had a butt load of trouble with them. Are you running in a semi, or bolt? Let me know if they run good in your semi. I ordered 1000 and sent 800 back!

I have been running them in a Ruger 22/45 with a PacLite upper and a Ruger 10/22 with a Whistlepig barrel with a Thunderbeast 22-L suppressor on them and both have run flawlessly. I have had problems with Aguila and CCIs not firing in the pistol.

I don't shoot Remington .22's anymore either, about a 10-15% failure rate, on the Golden Bullet, anyway.

I have had thunderbolts fail to fire in other guns but have not tried them in either of these. No problems with the subsonics so I will keep shooting them

Remington doesn't work any better or worse than any other cheap, bulk ammo. Federal has been very poor stuff for me. If its cheap, I buy it. Its ok to practice clearing jams.

I get most of my FTFs from Federal.

Doesn't matter, just stick 'em back in. Not many fail twice.

I have had lots of problems with FTFs with Remington bulk stuff too, not just in one or two guns, but any of dozens of .22 firearms I have shot it in over the years, both mine and other people's. At least one in ten is a complete dud in the last ones I bought, and the ones that do go off never seem to have the same amount of powder, make the same sound, or hit in the same place. I just went through a 550 pack of Fedral bulk with only 1 ftf total, and good accuracy and consistancy. Federal or Winchester have both worked well for me over the years with the bulk stuff, and I love CCI for the better stuff-never, ever, ever had a single ftf from CCI .22 ammo after shooting it for nearly forty years, but I'll never buy another Remington .22 shell if there's any other choice.

Nothing semiauto I own likes Remington anything. Plus it burns dirty. I've been told alot of the issues have to do with the parafin coating they apply.

CCI minimags and Stingers have been so dependable, I rarely use anything else. Occasional box of Winchester or Federal being the exception.

I've had the exact opposite experience with the Golden Bullets. No problems and with one of my 10/22's they are the most accurate.

I run federal bulk pack ammo through my Ruger mark II with a PAC light and cci standard velocity through my cz452 and 10/22. Those seem to work best and stay subsonic with my silencerco sparrow attached.

I really like the Federals too. The Remington Golden Bullets I reserve for my bolt actions and revolvers. My Ruger pistols and auto rifles will not cycle them and they fail to fire very often.

I doubt 3 bulk boxes of .22 lr will put you on any list.

You might have left a zero out of your math.......not 3 boxes=1500....it is 15,000 which is way more than 3 boxes.....like 30 bricks....I still don't think it will be on any list since ammo is not regulated in GA. In MA, you can only own a certain amount with a special permit issued by the state. I know you can't legally buy any bulk ammo in MA.

I must be lucky. I've shot thousands of Rem Subsonic and can only remember a couple of FTF. I love the stuff.

Remington bulk is garbage. CCI stingers are all I buy anymore.

I really don't think of Remington subsonic as "bulk" ammo. I suppose any ammo you buy in bulk would be bulk ammo. I have had excellent results with the Remingtons myself and terrible luck with the CCI subsonic stuff. I have had ok results with Stingers but they would defeat the purpose of using a suppressor. If I were just wanting pure accuracy and didn't care about the cost or noise I would be using Eley. The Remington works so well we are going to order 10,000 more rounds. Of course every gun is different and your mileage may vary.
