Just wondering if any of you GSG5 owners have had any luck feeding Blazers through your rifle. They seem to be about the least expensive .22lr out there so if they work I thought id load up on em.

My 10/22 has no problem with them. Never had a failure to fire over the decades I've used them.

My 10/22 will eat most anything I feed it. I have a GSG5 on the way and need some ammo for her. Just wanted to see if anyone has had any luck using it in their GSG5

I used CCI Blazers for my first 500 rounds through my GSG5, I have since used 500+ rounds of Remington Thunderbolts. I have since used only Thunderbolts and found them to be cleaner, more reliable and more accurate. The Blazers really left a ton of "gunk" all throughout my GSG. Also, at my local gun shop the CCT Blazers 500 pk and Rem Thunderbolt 500 pack are both 16.99.

What about Federals copper plated 36 grain? Wal mart has em for $18.99 for a 550 count box. Are they any good?

I feed my gsg and all my 22s federal more than anything else. Least amount of gunk, very accurate, almost 0 failures of any kind (do happen but very rare) and its always available and inexpensive at walmart.

Blasers are my go to LR. they work fine in my 10/22, Henry and handguns, auto and revolver. The price is usually great.

real decent

not too dirty
went through a whole box last night only one fte. lots of bang for your buck and the cleanup isn't awful

there is no such animal as "clean bulk ammo"; they are leave excess unburnt powder, some less than others...for me, blazers are the least dirty; federal bulk the most...

i find it very hard to believe that your use of Rem Thunderbolts left your rifle the cleanest; they are among THE dirtiest of all the bulk ammo...a fact i state with the dozens of fellow rimfire shooters i have known and encountered.

the only Remington rimfire i use is their .22 magnum; use of thunderbolts, cyclones and golden bullets is only when there is absolutely no other choice.
