    Finally getting around to shooting some of the ammo that was stockpiled during the dark years. When .22 couldn't be found, I would pick up anything I could get my hands on. Went to the range today with a bulk box of Remington Golden Bullets. After about 120 rounds through a Ruger 10/22, the magazines were so dirty they were starting to have feed problems. Never seen this happen before. Black, gritty residue everywhere. I don't even want to shoot the rest of the box. Maybe better out of the Henry, but still what a mess.

    The Golden Bullets aren't as messy from my bolt guns and pump guns. We use it for backyard plinking fun. I think it isn't a clean burning powder in those and with the autoloader it gets messy. Probably cheap case lube as well just to add to the gummy fun.
    But at least they are cheap!

    Do NOT use Thunderbolt's in a revolver unless you wanna spend hours cleaning the lead out.

    I just got a box of this stuff at Kittery Trading Post. It was $59.99 on sale (marked down from $74.99), with another $20 off that using a rebate. Will try it out, and if good, may get up there after Christmas for other sales and pick up another case or two of this.

    Good score, but you may only get to use that rebate once per household. May need to submit it under a friend's name/address...

    I think the rebate itself says 5 per household. If they still have some after Christmas, I might go back up there to see what sales are going on.

    I was up at KTP today and they still have lots of Federal Black Packs. All calibers too. The .22 was 1600 rounds for $59.99
