Remington vs. Federal ammo
I hate to bring up a subject that has "beat to death", I have a question that could make a difference if answered honestly. I own a fairly new Ruger MK3 Standard. I have shot 500 rounds of the cheap Remington hollow points, purchased from Walmart, to initially beak in the gun . Since I was encounterring very few misfires, jamming etc., I shot up the whole box of 500 experiencing only 3 jams. After reading all the negative threads re. Remington bulk ammo, I changed over to Federal .22LR, Value Pack, 36 gr., load no.750; again a 550 bulk box of shells from Walmart for about $14-$15. These Federals have already jammed 4 times in the first 100 rounds. So, what gives? Are these the wrong Bulk Federals that everyone has been raving about? If so, what and where can I find the identifying labels on the box for the right ones? Thanks everone for your patience on this overly discussed subject, but I'd really like to know which of the bulk Federals are the "good" ones.
