My .22s aren't picky at all. Shoot everything I feed them, and I'm just plinking, not competitively.

So for me, the cheaper the better.

Plinking, Federal automatch. Money bets and comps at the club, CCI standard.

My Marlin 795 will cycle just about any of the bulk stuff (Fed, Win, Rem), but it's most accurate with CCI MM 40g. However, I tend to stock up on Blazer bulk when I come across it. It's just as accurate as the CCI MM, but cheaper. Blazers get 5 shots in a dime sized target at 25 yds (scoped). Accurate enough for me.

This mirrors my experience. Remington GB's for range plinking, CCI Mini-Mags for self-defense.

Slightly qualifying my initial post I should have said that the 3 CCI varieties I mentioned were all I use in competition and all the other ammo is for practice, EXCEPT IN COLD WEATHER. While the CCI ammo will generally work well in conditions around freezing if you keep the ammo warm so that the lube stays fluid, I find that CCI Blazer 40g and Federal American Eagle 38g and 40g generally feed better and gum the firearm up less than CCI unless you have gone to the trouble of brushing off the lube on the bullet end of the CCI ammo. For some reason both Fed AE and Blazer seem to have less lube on them than the copper washed CCI MM and AR-T. There are a few others that can work better in the cold also but some of them have more duds than the ones I mentioned. Otherwise steal one of your significant other's small sealable Tupperware or other plastic container, dump all your ammo out of its boxes in the plastic container, and then activate a couple of Hot Hands single use hand warmers and dump them in with the ammo and seal it up. you should be fine with a rimfire in freezing conditions. Also make sure you lube the gun with the lightest oil you can find, either sewing machine oil or something like Eezox you can put on and then wipe off.

Federal AE must have gotten better.

I have a pistol that shoots this more accurately than some match ammo. So I bought a case when I was shooting in a winter bullseye league. I would have 2 or 3 per box of 50 that would fail to fire. Normally, if you rechambered it, after rotating it, it would fire. It seemed that the priming compound was not evenly distributed.

Depends on the gun. For my High Standard Bullseye Pistol it's CCI Green Tag. My Ruger 10/22 likes Federal Auto Match. I had a Ruger Mk II that would shoot anything but did best with standard velocity stuff.

THIS ^^^^^^^^^^

It does not matter what YOU like, it matters what each rimfire firearm you own likes.

And it is likely to be different for each firearm.
