Yeah... I've heard that, long before the shortage, that stuff was actually pretty decent but during the race to keep up production and stretch materials as far as possible, they sacrificed QC. People scoff at Thunderbolts. I would (and maybe have ) gladly buy Thunderbolts before this stuff ever again. In the worst of the dearth, I saw boxes of this crap with $75 price tags on it I may have overpaid a little too...but certainly not that much.

Maybe if I had a .22 machine gun to burn it up...

...no, it would jam and still be frustrating.

I refuse use Thuderbolts for years before the recent ammo “shortage”. Anyway, during the shortage I bought a box at a very reasonable price simply because I needed something to practice with. Turned out to be decent stuff. Still is...at least in my guns.

Funny, this thread. I not too long ago finished up some Thunderbolts I’d had for 25 years or more. No real problems. I also recently shot Federal Auto Match that cycled well in my Ruger rifle and pistol, and shot with good precision in my CZ. Luck of the draw I guess is what comes to my mind, with rimfire especially.
