Default What are you shooting out of your M&P 15-22?

8 more days until I get my 15-22 out of jail. I can't wait, so I've been doing alot of research about what everyone is using for ammo. I hear that CCI AR Tactical .22lr was designed with the 15-22 in mind. What else is everyone using? Thanks in advance for your time and opinions. Also, is anyone more inclined to get the mini mag from CCi now that its Swamp People Troy Landry approved? Love that show.

Congrats on the 15-22. It's a great choice and a lot of fun to shoot. I use bulk Blazers all day long without a ftf. There might be better rounds, but I only use my 15-22 for getting trigger time on the cheap so only care that it goes "pop" when I pull the trigger and not overly concerned about accuracy.

I have used the Wally world bulk Federal, Winchester M22, and both versions of CCI Minimags. The CCI is the most accurate but with all three I have only had one failure to feed and three failures to fire, all with the Federal. I haven't tried the CCI Tactical yet.

Get some extra mags while you wait and have fun with your new rifle!

My dad owns one but he always lets me take it to the range when I go with friends or by myself. We have run federal 525 bulk pack, cci blazers and mini mags no problem. The stuff we had problems with were remington and winchester 333.

CCI Mini Mags, Stingers, Velocitors (sp?), Blazer Big 5 bricks. The 555 have a hard time ejecting , and sometimes the bullets fall off the casings. The Blazers are dirty, they muck up everything. The cleanest are stingers then velocitors, mini mags, and Blazers are dirty!!

I think there are two versions of the 15-22 , regular, and match , the latter specifically states do not use high velocity ammo.

All bulk ammo from Wally World has worked for me, but I like Federal the best.

When I first got my 15-22 I tried CCI mini mags, CCI velocitors, Winchester 555, Winchester super x, Aguila super maximum, aguila interceptors, and Federal bulk. The Federal bulk and Aguila has been the most reliable for me. I've gone through stretches of 2000-3000 rounds with no malfunctions. The CCI mini mags gave me a couple failure to fires out of a few hundred rounds. The Winchester 555 had a few duds per brick, the Super x was actually pretty good.

Overall, as a plinker ammo, Federal bulk 36 grn hp is the best. A far as accuracy, it's not bad either. If you want an extra bang, try the Aguila super maximum which is the fastest .22 ammo out there(1750 fps!). For hunting, the CCI velocitor or Aguila interceptor are comparable 40 grn hp loads.

cci mini mags
cci tactical
winchester bulk
american eagle or something like that bulk.

mine has shot 100 rounds of each of these today, my very first day of owning it. i was really surprised it shot all of these different rounds with zero issues of any kind.

sooooo freaking happy wiht my 15-22. shooting it in a steel match the end of this month!
Competition is where you find out you're slow, can't see well, are not accurate, have poor gun handling, can't visualize, have equipment that doesn't work and either accept it OR DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

I have tried tons of different ammo in mine, but it is hard to beat the price for the Federal 525 bulk pack from Walmart.

I shoot the Federal 550 and Winchester 333 from Wallyworld out of mine with zero failures. It doesnt like Remington as well. Loves CCI.

Fun gun.
