Yup. It just happens to be a favorite snack of my savage 64fxp and does moderately well in my henry h001. Good price and worth it IMO.

pretty darn good price. I am looking to buy some bulk ammount. Everytime I go to turners the got NOTHING. I haven't gone to walmart yet. Hopefully the ammo scare doesn't get to where you can't even get ahold of .22 ammo:eek:

What's the difference between the M-22 and the standard bulk Winchester 333 or 555? I've been thinking of picking up a brick of it myself.

According to Winchester its designed for the the modern sporting arm platforms. AR style and other like it. It does feed well do to it black copper coated round nose and it hits reasonably hard down range too.

I was wondering about this stuff myself. I guess I am just partial to Federal 550's because it runs great in every .22lr I own. It sounds like the M-22 packs a little more punch, I might have to try it.

FYI - Manteca BPS has it in there Sale add for $49.99. I am not sure if that's a Sale price or if it's just in the add. Seems like I seen it cheaper somewhere else awhile back.

Uggh, saw it there for that price for 500rds, figured I'd wait. Went to Tracy Walmart, 1000rds for $42.00. Thumbs down on all BPS ammo prices

When i found mine it was $42.99 befor tax after if was $47 something. So $.047 per shot isnt bad in my book.

I've been running M-22s on my CMMG dedicated uppers. Its clean, works well, no FTF or FTEs encountered. The M-22s work better than 555s, on the 555s the bullet shape is slightly truncated and I think that is causing a FTF every 20rnds in the same uppers.

Its definitely got some punch going down range - makes the Federal bulk feel a lot weaker.
