I haven't fired my GSG-5 yet, but my buddy told me his was not working well with standard bulk .22LR ammo. Has anyone else experienced this?

My GSG likes federal bulk 550 pack and the bulk federal champion, but avoid those remington golden bullets like the plague. The guy I got the rifle from gave me a free box of them and they are just sitting there, because they muck up the gun. Lots of fail to fires and just hassle all around.

Federal bulk pack works just fine in mine, as does everything else I've fed it - it's not picky.

mine doesnt like american eagle unless it is the copper plated ones. the federal bulk pack shoots just fine.

Mine seems too like the federal bulk pack a lot! No problem with those. I hates the remington golden bullets and it makes the gun dirtier too. Not only do they suck, they cost more too!

I use the Walmart bulk Winchester Xpert. In almost 1000 rds through my GSG-5, not one problem.

So far I've shot:

Winchester Xpert
Bulk American Eagle copper jacket (the red brick)
Bulk Federal(?) no copper jacket (the blue brick)
Remington golden bullets
CCI Mini Mags
Remington yellow jacket hyper velocity
Remington(?) viper hyper velocity

The GSG ate everything no problem with one exception. The Federal blue bricks started giving me trouble when the rifle had over 1500 rounds through it without being cleaned. When I switched over to CCI minimags the gun went back to flawless operation. After a cleaning the blue brick stuff worked fine again.

Lots of people knocking the Remington goldens but they have always worked great for me in both my GSG and my 10/22.

Im about 3500 in atm... It does hiccup ever now and then when it gets a lil dirty but other then that its a blast to shoot.

ugh. i stay away from all remington ammo. their .308 and 22lr are really dirty compared to federal or winchester.

mine isnt picky, had some remington 40gr round nose that was fine, and the federal bulk 550 pack was decimated by my hungry lil gsg
