Have only used Mini-Mag HP's in my P22Q since I purchased it a year ago. Nice pistol, very accurate. Even with the Mini-Mags, I have at least one stovepipe per box, sometimes two. I decided to go with what a number of people in this forum report are quality rounds for the P22 Remington Golden Bullets and voila, I ran 200 rounds through it at the range today with zero problems. Since Mini-Mags are really hard to find around here, or get snarfed up as soon as they hit the stores, I'm going with the Remington GB's. Now, I bought two 100-round boxes at Academy my question is, are the 525-round bulk packs as good a quality round as the smaller box? With the 36-grain Mini-Mag HP's, it's been my experience there are a few more problems in the bulk packs than in the 100-round boxes. Not many problem rounds, just enough to make you wonder. And, it may not even be the ammo, it may be my pistol, which now is well broken in. Anyone else have the same or similar problem with bulk packs?
I know the price is right, and I can sure burn a lot more .22-cal. powder for the money than my other Walther's in 9mm and .380.

Well....the price was right ten years ago...bulk box for $6. The price is not alright these days....but, what can you do. I've shot a lot of bulk RGBs and still do. A bulk box will run from O duds to four perhaps. One time I got two in a row that were duds. But, since this is a plinker....I don't care. The RGBs are snappy....not sure why other brands with similar specs aren't.



Here is one shooting with no cleaning or lubing of a P22 and no stoppage allowed or the shoot ended. Dud rounds didn't count against the pistol...A P22 can be made to run pretty smoothly and that is a lot of spent cases on the floor.....Do you know how long it takes to load that many rounds? That is what wears your shootin' hand out....not pulling the trigger. 1917

Actually.....when I was a teen I paid $6 per 500 rounds back in about 1965. I preferred Peters high velocity for one rifle I owned. That same $6 equates to over $46 in 2017 money.....so, while not the bargain they were 10 years ago....I guess they aren't too badly priced. 1917

You're right about the price and right again about what can you do. I'm just glad I can use the RGB's now in my P22 and not have to online order Mini-Mags all the time. Been shooting 9mm and .380 so much, I forgot how fun it is to just pop off a few boxes of .22-cal. I remember a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, when a box of .22 shells went up to 50-cents a box, we all thought the world had come to an end.

You can also get the RGBs in a 1,400 round buchet for an even lower cost.

You also got a McDonald's hamburger for 10 cents.

In 1968, I could get 4 McDonald's burgers for a buck, and if they didn't get it to you within a minute, it was free. And that was in a packed McDonald's in a college town before they had places for you to sit down and eat. Probably what's the matter with me today, I ate too damn many of those little burgers. Ah, the good old days.

Update:

Had a really long day out in a Bureau of Land Management shooting area. Fired +/-700 rounds of nothing but Golden Bullets out of the bulk bucket. No cleaning in between at all and just 2 FTE to report and good accuracy. The internals are covered in soot, but I'm pretty happy with my gun!

I trust it to shoot Golden Bullets reliably enough that I'm saving my minimags for my 10/22 instead.

Just recently went to the range and fired 160 rounds of various brands of 22 ammo, stingers, velocitors,CCI mini mags, Aquila, Norma T22s and the new CCI all copper .21 grain bullet with a 5 inch barrel, not one FTF or FTE or
fire, first time with the longer barrel and was pleasantly surprised at its accuracy, just a point of information the norma T22 s have a light coat of oil on each round, first time I've ever seen that with 22 ammo, all in all I'm very happy with the P22 no problems mechanically, was alittle Leary getting it after reading some of the negatives on this forum ..

Ran a full 550-round pack of Rem. Golden Bullets through my P22Q the past two weeks and not one single hiccup. Am really liking this little pistol and I'm finding that .22LR suddenly is becoming very easy to acquire in northern Oklahoma even Mini-Mags! Now, if Wal-Mart would just stop with their one-box-per-day limit, it would be even more fun. I guess Academy gets all my .22 business now.
