What experience have people had with this brand both 22lr and 22wmr?

I believe this is the same as BitterRoot Valley Ammo Corp (BVAC). I tried both the 22lr and 22wmr. The 22lr was ok, about the same as Federal or Winchester bulk but maybe with a little more wallop. Accuracy was on par with bulk ammo. The 22wmr was another story. It was pretty accurate, about like CCI Maxi-Mag out of my Marlin 925M but failed to fire 2 out of 5 rounds. Could have been my rifle but it never did this with CCI Maxi-Mags so I did not buy more. Price at the time was $65/brick but couldn't get past the failure to fire issue.
Armscor is usually pretty crappy but cheap junk---I would personally avoid both any guns or ammo in that brand.

I bought 500 rounds and experienced about 8 cases bursting leaving the projectile lodged in the barrel. Maybe because of tighter chamber on my Volquartsen I don't know but I did not use the rest. Switch to CCI minimag with 100% reliability.

Ive tried thier RF and CF rounds and found them to be crap
Get CCI bulk if you want reliable plinking ammunition
i haven't tried the ammo but i have the armscor 20P semi auto rifle and it's very well made and operates well. the standard sights are not that good so accuracy suffers.
Armscor is a Philippines based company and supplies are somewhat limited here in CONUS.
