I like them... they work very well with my Marlin 795 and S&W 622. If you look back on some older threads though you will find mixed reviews but with my experience with them they're awesome.

nope... they suck. they dont feed in my mark III/markII
the hollowpoint is too big and it snags on the feed ramp

Shoot very well out of my Remington 597 VTR and also my friends AR w/ Tacsol .22lr Upper.

It sucks you don't want any, trust me, run, RUN FOR YOU LIFE! (maybe that will keep them from buying it up until I get as much as I want :).) I have 20k of it and have fired about 600-700 rounds without problems. I feel it is excellent plinking ammo. I plan to buy AT LEAST a case per month through 1/1/2011.

The stuff is junk. It malfunctions all the time in any semi auto .22

It's been just "OK" for me. Fires fine for the most part in my stock barreled 10/22, but tends to stick (FTE) in my shooter's ridge stainless bull barreled 10/22 after several shots or if it's not perfectly clean. Put 20rds through my GSG without a problem, but don't know if I'll be doing more.

If you have a bolt gun go for it, I had zero misfires out of a 500 brick in my 50 year old marlin bolt gun.

As for semi autos, I couldn't get them to run in my 10/22, they fed fine just tons of FTF, at least ever other shot didn't fire. But then agian bulk remington didnt work in my gun either. I did try them in my uncles stock 10/22 and it worked fine, but didn't work in his G22.

But a pack and try it out, they are so cheap you don't have much to lose.

I had two bricks of Armscor .22 - Solids and HP. They will function well in manually operated actions like my Lever and Bolt action .22s. In autos, you're likely to experience a FTE. The casing and the bullet (not bullet component) gets jammed in the chamber and it takes about 3-4 cycles to extract it. I had problems in my SW 622, Ruger 10/22, and Conversion kits.

Get a box and try it out, but don't waste your money and frustration on an entire brick. Spend a few dollars more and get some more reliable bulk from Fed, Rem, or Winchester.

shot a brick through my 10/22 worked fine no misfires.
However it does smell horrible and is generally dirty.
