Testing high dollar ammo

I looked, and I did not see a thread about testing high end ammo in the P22Q.
So I did.
SK: HV HP did ok. Better than the pistol match ammo.
Eley Edge: Good groups, ut with fliers.
SK Flat Nose: About the same as the eley.
Lapua Center X: Not too good.
Lapua Midas: Homerun.
All of these cycled good w/no jams.
So yeah, the most expensive ammo shoots the best sucks, but al least it shoots great! I was ready to throw mine in the creek it was grouping so bad.
Yes, CCI min mags did shoot good, but not w/o fliers.
All were shot with 10 round mags loaded up.
I double tested the Midas. it's bad A$$ in my P22Q!
Cheers! Hope this helps!

About the only thing I saw different in high end target ammo was fewer flyers. 5" barrel version. Of course in competition that would be very important. Crete put up a chart of groups from an number of ammo varieties including top of the line Eley and one variety of Federal hung right with it. These were all fired out of high end target pistols. Are you shooting the 3.4" barrel? It is ok for plinking....the 5" barrel is much more accurate. My old P22, 2007, would put five rounds in a 5/8" group from 25M when installed in a rest. The 3.4" barrel...not so much, call it 2" to 3".. 1917
