    I had the opportunity to shoot a group of 5 Lapua Dominators just yesterday. I was taking a test for someone using Federal Champion (500 count box).

    The Lapua group was 1/2" for 5 rounds. Couldn't touch that using Federal. I don't have the money to shoot $14/50 round ammo but it was pretty schnazzy.

    Wait till you move to larger calibers. $0.30/round is nothing. That's what people pay for crap .223 ammo for plinking.

    Yep.

    Personally, I shoot CCI Blazer in all my .22s ~$20-25/500 depending on where you get it. It'll shoot minute-o-FantasticMrFox at 50 yards out of my mostly-stock 10/22 in the middle of the night in my pajamas, at least. That's good enough for me

    I also shoot CCI Blazer out of my 10/22. I've compared a few different brands at 100 yards, and the CCI seems to group the best. i'm not talking 1/2 inch groups, but i can probably hold a 2 or 3 inch group if i were really trying. i'm sure the ammo/gun is a lot more accurate than that though.....

    My 10-22 and Mk3 pistol eats anything but Remington without any problems. Never noticed and real difference in accuracy just a slight vertical difference

    Depending on the gun.
    My s&w 41 early model loves the lapua 2 is the wolf gold match....but since I don't shoot anywhere as much as I used to anything above the price of cci blaser or Aquila target is a waste
    My glenfield 25 shoots almost any 22 shorts very well
    My last 2 10/22s shot minute of somewhere
    I like most people seem to have no luck with Remington 22lr

    CCI. Standard for consistent loads in precision guns. Mini-Mag for the pesky guns and bowling pin tops. (^_^)

    I usually buy them in case lots (5k rounds) for the best price.
    A clip is not a magazine, a mag is not a clip.
    Neither is a grip a stock, and "stock" does not mean grip.
    A bullet is not a cartridge, nor is the converse true.
    Folks should be more careful when they use the words they do.
    A revolver has a cylinder, but only one you see,
    and cylinders have chambers, five or six most commonly.
    I do not wish to nitpick, but improvement would be seen,
    if we could bring ourselves to say exactly what we mean.

    I'm a big believer in "you get what you pay for", but my most recent Champion's Choice catalog lists Lapua X-ACT at $234 per 500rds. I'm not sure I could find the difference on target between that and the Wolf Match Target I got for $35 a brick a while ago.
