    We worked a trade + cash. So my figures wouldn't be the same as you'd get.

    So after actually shooting my GSG I decided to stock up a little and try out various different ammos to see what works best in it. So here's my stock pile.

    That's a lot of Remington to wallow through.

    I have never had good results with any Remington rimfire products, including their 597.

    I am guessing that the gun will function best with the CCI Mini Mags, then it will be a tie between the Federal Value Pack and the Winchester SSHP, followed by the Blazer, then the Yellow Jackets, then the rest of the Remington "stuff."

    For accuracy, CCI Mini-Mags will only slightly edge out the Federal Gold Medal.

    I'm just guessing (based on my own experiences with hardware rimfire ammo).

    I don't shoot the Stingers in most of my rimfires because the case is so long the bullet engages the rifling in a target chambered barrel. The Velicitors have the speed without the extra long case.

    You need to get rid of the Remington and Blazer ammo.

    It will do bad things to your GSG.

    That's exactly why I shoot the fun guns. I can shoot all day for $30. I love these guns.

    Yep the remington sucks. The blazers works alright.
