turners in south pasadena. but walmart in duarte is ur best bet. stingers are 5.47$ for 50 rounds and hollow points are 6.47$ for 100 rounds. if u want to try federal.. they have the 550 rounds for 18$. but thers a 6 per person limit.

with all this rapture talk, i had to stock up.. now, i think i have close to 1000. and i might come back tonite for the hollow points.

525 rounds of CCI blazers for $15.99

Blazers are the bulk version of the Mini Mags, but in my experience they work great, i will be pickin some up this coming week for sure

The problem with the "tactical" is it's all about the "name" and nothing about performance, yet it certainly comes at a performance price.
The "standard" these days - even with bulk ammo, is 1250 fps/40 gr. bullet, or some slight variation thereof.  The CCI Tactical is listed at 1200 fps and comes in 40 round boxes...NOT what I call a better deal for my "tactical" weapons.
I've got garden variety bulk pack ammo - copper plated, higher rated speed, less money and it goes bang every time.
For the cost of CCI Tactical I'd rather buy Aguila Hypervelocity, or CCI Velocitors, OR (in the case of my ever-hungry Razorback belt fed), a lot MORE CCI Blazer which functions about as close to 100% as you can get.
Unfortunately when one is looking at filling 500 round belts that go downrange "with a quickness," even the cost variation between brands and styles of .22LR matters.

I agree with Kilibreaux. When you compare the specs, there is practically no difference between the different offerings from the same manufacturer. Where a person can get into trouble is the failure to fire percentage between the manufacturers. Most seem to have trouble with the bulk Remingtons.

I don't understand what the tactical bullets have that the others don't.

Just ordered 2 boxes from Midway, kinda pricey, but the reviews were generally good, they specified it was the cleanest .22lr they had fired. I will run some thru thru the Colt and get back to ya..

I'm interested in the new (yet to be released?) Winchester "M22". They are also advertised as "tactical 22" specific, and designed to cycle well in "high-capacity magazines". They are 40gr. plated round nose with 1255 fps muzzle velocity. They also say they'll only be sold in 1000 rnd. value packs. Winchesters always seem to work particularly well in my Colt.

Well, I am very impressed with the CCI Tactical. Shot well, better accuracy and repeatability than the Federal bulk, had no malf's at all.  :thumb:

basically, i broke in the rifle with 2 boxes of 375 rounds of CCI AR tactical. but if u want the best cycle... shoot the stingers.
an old man at the range told me.... after u break in ur rifle with CCI.. it shouldnt be that picky anymore. but ive tried the federal 550... they wer surprisingly good! NO fails! thats y im buying 2 more boxes... also tryin the CCI blazers.. got 2x 525 rounds @ 14$ each.

I had an opportunity to try some Blazers not too long ago, but they were too tight in the Colt's chamber, causing misfires. Had to pass on those, even if they were cheap!

Yo Mr. Wheel, what are you saying? The Blazer ammunition fit into the chamber and did not fire? Or the Blazer ammo did not fit into the chamber, and the gun was not in battery and didn't fire?

I have found the chamber to be slightly UNDERSIZE compared to many other (particularly American made) .22 semi-autos. Have read that many European-made barrels are tighter than what we call "standard". The Walther/Colt's bore diameter is smaller too. Specs closer to "match-grade". The Blazers I tried, like the Velocitors would begin to "stick" in the chamber about 3/4's in. Sometimes cleaning the chamber after every 5 shots would help, but that was WAY too much trouble! If you mike the diameter of some CCI's bullets, you will see they are larger, or have a different "contour" than others. When the bullet doesn't seat fully in the chamber, the result is a "light-strike" causing misfire. Often when this happens, the un-modified extractor on the Colt will not even pull them out. The CCI's can work well in "sloppier" barrels, but not in my Colt. Measure the bore and chamber dia. on the Colt, and compare to Ruger and others, you'll see what I mean! I that's why a 10/22 will shoot most anything, even Remmington!
