Default Always do your research AFTER you buy.....Remington 22s

Well, true to form, I just ordered some 525 paks of Remington Golden Bullet 36 gr HP.

NOW....after gettin conf of order, I am reading reviews that they are no damn good.

They say they misfire (one place said 4 outta 6 FTF) which is hard to believe.

Any info here?

I'm not expecting match ammo, but I would like to hear a bang and have something come flying out of the muzzle when I pull the trigger.

Years ago I sent back so many FTF Federals that I just quit buying them and haven't since. (probly 25 years)

I always had good performance from Remingtons in the past although many were tight in an EARLY K-22 but other than that, they all shot OK.

Not like the CCIs, but I didn't pay CCI price either.

I have CCI Mini-Mags and SV and can not find MIni Mags looking around.

Cut to chase.

Do the Rem Golden Bullet HPs shoot okay for YOU?

Thanks.

They shoot a little dirty but they're OK - it just depends on the gun.

Buy a S&W 617. All your .22 ammunition concerns disappear...

I have shot many, many, many 1,000's of them and they have worked as well as any other brand in at least 1/2 dozen rifles and pistols. Most are semi-auto. I do have to pull the action/barrel out of the stock every year or so and shoot it with brake clean spray.
The trick with any 22RF is not to oil it and it will run longer between cleaning. Have a rifle with way too many rounds thru it to count that has been used that way since 1962. Still work perfectly and with the rem ammo.
The rem ammo is what I mostly shoot.
Do not worry about the armchair quarterbacks and keyboard commandos who have crap to say, probably over lube and rarely shoot and just go enjoy shooting it.

Some guns don't like them. Some guns prefer them. At worst case they become barter material.

I've easily shot 5k of them from 10/22s, cheap tube fed 22lrs, tiger mkIIs, and a bunch of single actions and have never had an issue. Not to daubing won't happen but also don't believe everything you read.

Yeah, they suck. You should just send them to me for proper disposal.



Seriously, IMO, it depends on the gun. Buckmark usually eats them up, as does my dedicated .22 AR. Of course YMMV.

The only 22 that consistently causes problems in my Ruger MarkIII 22/45 is Aguila ammo.
36 gr Rem cycles great in it. They are good rounds.

The Remington Golden Bullets don't work in my Marlin 22 auto that functions well with everything else. I think they're light loaded or inconsistent.

Just for future reference, all of the Remingtom ammo sucks. Never buy it if you can avoid it. During the shortage though, often the only .22s available have been Remington GBs. Better to shoot them than to not shoot at all. I agree with the others, very dirty and more FTFs/FTEs than other brands. Their .45 ACP and 9mm loads were always powder puffs, often will not cycle pistols with stiff actions and also burned dirty for me. Their shotgun loads seem to work better but for rifle and pistol, I avoid their stuff like the plague.

Default Always do your research AFTER you buy.....Remington 22s

Only problem I have with them is they don't fit well in my ruger bearcat. No idea as to why. Otherwise they shoot in all my autos, pistols and rifles, and bolts.

They're good ammo. As with all bulk 22 there'll be a few duds in a box as swell as average accuracy. And by average I mean tin can at 50yds accuracy which is fine. It's not dime size group ammo. Big deal. They work. Shoot 'em and have fun.

I have had good luck with them. All that I have shot have been in boxes. I have a couple buckets as a back up supply but I haven't shot any from the buckets. All of the bulk ammo no matter what brand will have a few that don't fire the first time. Take them and rotate them so that the firing pin hits a different spot and then they will fire.

Golden Bullets work well for me in the Glock AA conversion kit. I haven't had problems in other conversion kits, either (Ciener AR-22, Mini14-22), and conversion kits are notoriously finicky.

It must the rifle, not the rifleman. When you said "misfire", did you try to hit it again? I would check for a dirty firing pin or bound spring.

They work better than most of the discount .22s, but are dirty.

I do not care much for CCI, but the CCI ammo is pretty decent in .22lr. I like federal and winchester ammo though. Remington Golden Bullet has been garbage for me.

BUT, usually if you take out the ammo and rotate it a bit, it will fire on the next shot, it just needs to get hit in a spot where it will detonate the primer that appears to be lacking in the remington crap...

They shoot fine with the right gun. Make sure your gun is clean, especially around the extractor. I little fouling can build up and cause the rim to be offset. When the firing pin strikes the rim, if it's too far off, it simply dents the brass and doesn't set of the primer compound (which is getting smaller and smaller nowadays) and you get a dud.

I was getting several duds per magazine with a box of Federal 525's with my SW22A-1. Federal Automatch were shooting 100% in the same gun so the first thought was bad ammo. Got perfect function in my 10/22 with both ammo so that meant the combo of SW22A-1 and Fed 525 might be wrong. Thoroughly cleaned the SW22A-1 and the duds went away.

I would certainly question someone who said that 4 of 6 Golden Bullets FTF. I would estimate that I have had perhaps 1/2 percent, yes 1 of 200 FTF in my 10/22 and in a Ruger 22/45. They work. They are not the cleanest, they are not the most consistent, but they work for plinking.

I'm sure you're right.
I saw that review and said, "WTF?"

Could easily be someone with an agenda against Remington, but I thought I'd check here just for some input from more people.

My reticence is from numerous tries with Federals in the 1970's.
No matter what gun I tried, I could not count on them to fire. I mean REALLY awful.

3-6 duds per box of 50.

I sent them back to the Federal factory and they replaced them.
Same story.
Sent THOSE back and got another replacement ....that also was BETTER but not acceptable.

I used to use a LOT of Remingtons. The only "problem" I had was very tight chambering in a very early K-22. That gun ONLY liked Winchesters.

I got used to Winchesters in the 555 box and am running out. I bought 15 cartons about 10 years ago and am down to last one.

Seems there aren't many offers of those Winchesters so I thought I'd give the ole Rems a try.

I don't use em for competition. I use CCI standard velocity.

I have several rifles and pistols in 22LR so SOMETHING will undoubtedly like the Rems.
Probably the Winchester 9422 as THAT gun has one HELL of a hammer WHACK! Also a VERY accurate gun.

The 10/22 will probably also digest them as it seems impervious to ammo preference.

Thanks for all the (mostly encouraging) info and I'll try to remember to let you all know how they work out.

I got a bunch coming.

I picked the Remingtons because the ammo "locator" services are mostly loaded with Federals an Aquilas.

Anyhow, thanks for the feedback.

They work fine in everything I own. A few duds here & there but very accurate in my 10/22s. Not as accurate as CCI or Aquila SV but not $60/brick either.

GB is one of two bulk ammos I've found that cycle my SIG Mosquito. If it goes bang the pistol works.

This.

All my bolt guns love them. The older Remington 5xx series especially. I have a 513T that shoots the hell out of them - dirty, but very accurate.

Shoot them off-hand, and you won't be able to tell the difference between these and match ammo.

Guess I was frettin' fer nuttin'.

Took em out and they worked just fine in my Ruger Mk2 4" bbl, and Walther PPK.

If a 22 works in that lil pre-68 PPK, it'll function in ANYTHING.

PPK ...DEMANDS.... full power loads.

My Marlins love Wolf Match and hate the Remington ammo. I've got several thousands rounds of Wolf ammo down the tube without even one FTF FTE.

So what does that mean? Nothing, unless you are me.

On ammo you do not load yourself you should not buy in bulk until you know your gun really really likes it. A box from several different manufacturers is cheap insurance of not making a mistake in over buying useless ammo.

Yup . Not the best but not bad . It's dirty but it's 22. Who cares. All my 22s fire em no prob. 1 in 100 won't go bang but re chamber and no prob. Out of 3000+only 1(maybe 2) would not go bang
