Default Rem. 22 cal surplus from CMP

Picked up a few 5K cases of this stuff from the CMP a couple, or more years ago. Just wondering if anyone has used any of it and what kind of results you may have had. At $90. a case I couldn't pass it up.

Shoots well for me as standard velocity (SV) ammo. The same rifles and pistols that like other SV like the Remington White Box.

Seems to be about equivalent to CCI SV 40 grain lead round nose.

Also very good for donating a couple bricks at a time for Boy Scout Troop Shoots. At the price the boys can shoot a lot, which makes for happy Scouts and future shooters.

I have had the same experience as steelap, the Remington .22 ammo deal ranks right up there with the US AP Spam cans as one of the all time best CMP ammunition deals.

As the others reported, it shoots pretty well, but when I was using mine, I noticed occasional fliers.
These weren't just minor changes, that could be attributed to the shooter (me), these were pretty far, like going from 8's to outside the scoring area.
It was good for practice, and the fliers forced me to go back and rethink the errant shots carefully, and _some_ of them were mine. But not all of them.

I only bought one case when it was offered. Now my boys are shooting more and I wish I had bought more..oh well.

Bought two cases and have no regrets except for not buying more. Great ammo for the price paid.

I found it to be not the most accurate stuff around but you sure can't beat it for the price at the time. So, yes, good Scout fodder and plinking ammo

Shot lots of it over the years; reasonably accurate with occasional misfire once in a great while.
