Re: Need help buying ammo for new pistol
I own a Umarex Colt Government 1911 .22. With this pistol, I've done what I normally do with any and ALL auto loader, that I acquire, buy the smallest quantity of different ammo that's available and then find out which brand works best.
Having said that, since I own a number of .22 and have a number of different brands of .22 ammo on hand, so with my Umarex Colt, I've found that I can get by with CCI Blazer with minimal issues which costs me about $18.00- tax included- a brick at a local gun shop. Some of the other "bargain" ammo works OK in this pistol, but this stuff costs a dollar or two more than the Blazer, so I use Blazer for "bargain" ammo. I've also found that Stinger, Mini Mag, and Velocitor by CCI work well also.
