    I just got through running about 100 rounds of this stuff through my 10/22 takedown, and thought I'd post a quick review. It came in a 1000 round bulk pack, but there are actually two 500 round boxes inside. I looked several rounds over, and it was much nicer and cleaner than typical Federal or Winchester bulk stuff--it seemed to shoot a little cleaner as well. Accuracy was surprisingly good. At 20 yards, it was pretty common to put successive rounds through the same hole. No failures of any kind, which is more than I can say for the Federal which I usually shoot. Overall, I was pretty impressed, and I think it's worth the extra couple of bucks.

    Thanks. I'm running low on .22 and the last time we went out my son's 10/22 was choking bigtime on Federal bulk pack. I'll try some of the Winchester.

    I have been shooting it in all the 22's I have and had the same results as pokem. Cycles as well as minimags in my Walther p22and it is cheaper.

    Yeah, this is the ammo Winchester developed specifically for the high-capacity, AR-style .22s. I balked a little bit at the price, but now I'm sold on it. Between the accuracy and no failures to fire/extract/eject, the extra couple of bucks was money well spent.

    Where is the best place to buy it? How much does the 1000 rounds run?

    I bought a 1000 rounds of m-22 last week from Academy for $45
    Shots great in my Taurus Tracker 990.

    Glad to hear this, my .22's didn't like Winchester ammo before. Might have to try a k or so of it.
