    Has anyone tried the Sellier & Bellot surplus target 22LR Ammo? It is Eley primed military target grade 1980's surplus 22LR ammo ar $1.50 a box. Is this good target ammo? Does it shoot accurately with minimal failures to feed or fire?

    I wouldn't waste my $ on it when I can buy Federal Champion for $6.80 a brick.

    See my post don't buy a Smith 22A

    That works out to $15 per brick. Low enough price tag to grab some and give it a workout, and not be out a lot of $ if it doesn't work out.

    I've found my CZ 452 shoots best with Winchester Wildcats ($9-11 per brick depending on where you go). I've tried some of the "match grade" ammo, and only got marginally better results. Some of it was downright lousey.
