22 mag ammo Login/Join 



posted
I was wondering what you guys have had good luck with in 22 mag ammo! I was given a 22 mag Marlin bolt action and am wanting to do some shooting with it. Not looking for any unbelievable groups an inch at 100 yards off of a bench and sand bags is good enough for me. I've bought several diff kinds but was wondering what results you guys are getting. To name one has anyone used any of the armscore 22 mag ammo? It's priced fair and I am going to try it and see what happens!
Thank you in advance!

I've read a few things that say the armscorp ammo is quite accurate. Although, I'm curious about it's lethality. I recently picked up a CMR30 for shorter range varminting and small game hunting (150 yards and in) and will be doing some accuracy testing myself. I've got most of the commonly found 22 mag ammos that I'll be trying but leaning toward the 40 grain weights as this rig will be also used for coyote.

Keep us in the loop on your testing and I'll do the same once I hit the range.

I hunt with .22mags quite a bit, after our favorite squirrel hunting place got over-run by feral hogs.

If i had to pick a single "most likely to succeed in multiple guns" .22mag ammo, it'd probably be Winchester 40gr JHp's, in the silver box. Also, i have shot the Hornady 45gr Critical Defense, and the CCI Gold Dot 40gr H-P's in quite a few rifles & have hunted with those loads a good bit, and they have worked well.

That being said, the Armscor 22mags shot decently in several of my .22mags.

If you want pure splatter factor, loads such as the Winchester Black Box Supreme, the CCi Maxi-Mag +V. or the 30gr Tipped loads (V-Max, etc) are great for carnage, but they wreck any edibles, and they penetrate poorly on hogs, or with angled shots on coyotes. If you squirrel hunt with 'em, better stick to head shots.

On the other end, stuff like the Rem PSp's, or CCI Gampoints, will shoot clear through hogs & coyotes, but they dont wreck squirrels too bad on body shots.

just saw Midway has the 40gr Gold Dots on clearance...

ignore the velocities reported on these, the speed shown is out of a pistol barrel ; rifles speeds are about 1850-1900fps.

I like the CCI 40 grainers, they work well out of my PMR30 and my CMR30
