    I've got 3 22s set up to run the suppressor, a bolt gun, a 10/22, and a little bersa pistol.
    My 10/22 is basically stock, except putting a folder and optic on it, and cutting the barrel back to 16.5", threading it, and putting the front sight back.
    For plinking, just the Remington bulk pack, the plated golden bullet. The thunderbolts had leading issues, so the only unplated bullets I shoot now are subsonics. For anything serious, I like cci, particularly mini mags. I don't try really accurate shooting with it, I have a serious match rifle, but have had good results with wolf match. Was not impressed with green tag, standard shot just as well, but your rifle may differ. Pmc scoremaster was awesome, but I think now unavailable. Federal standard didn't seem to always run well.
    Remington subs were fine, as was cci. The gemtech subs work good also, i've been told cci loads it for them.

    You just gotta get a little of everything you can find, and see.

    A friend who was a trapper for a long time, used a 22 rifle to dispatch what he caught. He said he never found a 22 hp that expanded on game, so don't waste the money. Myself, if the price is the same, I don't care whether there's a hole in the front or not, i'll get either.

    I would would agree completely on the HV stuff. The only benefit I have found with HP is it tends to ricochet less.

    Update.

    I was able to get out this last weekend with some CCI standard 40gr and Federal Black Pack 36gr HP, as well as some old CCI Blazar ammo that I had. I shot a total of 100 CCI standard, 100 Federal, and 50 Blazar. All three were "ok", but I had some problems with feeding with all three brands. The problems all came on the 25 round Ruger banana mags, with no problems using the standard 10 round mags. Some of the problems even resulted in rounds becoming unusable to the point that I had to dispose of them in the dud can because the bullet had become partially separated from the brass, resulting in rounds that were obviously no longer safe to fire.

    I'll certainly be doing more shooting and testing, but I wonder, is it normal to have 5-10 out of 250 misfeeds, double feeds, failure to extract, etc. in the .22 rimfire world? I would have thought no with such a high end rifle, but my only other real experience with .22 is with an old Marlin Model 60 I've had since I was a kid, but that thing never fed properly. Maybe that's just how it is shooting .22LR semi auto? Any thoughts?

    Rimfirecentral.com has the 10/22 gurus. Might need to be shot more (assuming this is a new rifle) to break it in... A call to TacSol wouldn't hurt.
