Default PMC Zapper .22 rimfire

I was given 5 bricks of this stuff, I shot around 300 rounds today at the range and was VERY impressed. I have 2 very picky rifles and they both ran this stuff without incident. I did not put it on paper but shooting range trash on the ground it seemed accurate enough. I shoot at a BLM range in Ukiah and there is never a shortage of items left by others to shoot at. I am interested to hear from you guys/gals of your experience with this ammo. Before today I had zero experience with this ammo.

Lucky! That is some wonderful ammo in my semi-autos. My j.c. higgins loved that stuff. I want some!
Is it the 40g or 38g? Either one shot superbly for me

I've shot this and PMC Sidewinder. Good stuff. I still wonder why PMC rimfire ammo is seldomly seen.

Me too! A friend gave me a box of the sidewinder to try. I still want to find a case worth of the zapper again. Normal suppliers dont carry it anymore.

Not bad stuff right, PMC doesn't care for the .22 market or what??

PMC Zapper and Sidewinder was discontinued a few years ago. Not usre if they started production again? I picked up a couple cases from Century when they were closing it out.

I still have a bunch of it. Shoots great in the Mosquito of all things. But 15 year old PMC Zappers have a funny smell after you shoot them. And they look like sparklers as they leave the barrel. They DO WORK though!
