What ammo for my Buck Mark



Log in to see fewer ads
Any suggestions on ammo for my Buck Mark? Will it cycle lead 40 grain .22 LR? What's your favorite for target shooting?

Thanks

CCI 40gr. Minimags have been what works the best in my Buckmarks. Cycles great and pretty darn accurate.

I found my Buckmarks work with pretty much everything. For SV Iíve used CCI, Federal 711, old Remington and the Eley bulk ammo that CMP was selling recently. Those were used for bullseye competition. I can also use various HV ammo you would normally find in bulk and they all seem to work fine. Of course everything is hard to find nowadays but I would say you have a good chance that anything you find will work well.

Good luck,
John

Mine will run a lot of different ammo. But I find round nose over 1200 FPS runs the best . Federal auto match, blazer, CcI mini mag, Aguila .

I changed the extractor to a Tandemkross and it now runs Cci sv at 1070 FPS as well.

No Remington or Winchester ammo has ever run well in mine .. ever

I stopped using the minimags that i bought together with my brand new buckmark. There so much wax on the tip of these bullets that they interfere with the operation of the gun.

I have to admit that the gun, being new, had some issues that only went away after disassembly and a good cleaning. But i dont like the waxyness of the minimags. I have switched to cci patriot (these are high velocity) and havent had much issues. I like the fact that, at least in theory, these bullets should make the barrel less dirty.

My Buck Mark will feed just about anything I put through it.

I prefer CCI Standard Velocity.

The only ammo I've had issues with in mine was a single white box of Winchester. That crap misfired in every gun I tried it in. Otherwise it just happily eats rounds.

Mine runs anything but seems to like CCI HPís. I did find (and Iíve got a Tacticsol threaded barrel) sent Eley subsonic all over the place. Tack shooter with most decent ammo otherwise.

Mine isn't picky, but it loves Federal Auto Match the best. HV 40 grainers do the best in general. I shoot at least 100 rounds a week at our 50-yard golf and tennis ball informal competition.

I will break in a new plinking pistol with a couple hundred cci mini mags and then will shoot cci standard thru it which is my go to ammo most of the time.

CCI

Mine loves CCI 40gn, 1070fps. I have tried many others and the CCI works best. Norma tac-22 is a little waxy at 1100fps etc.

I had the same sh.. with Armscor. I bought 2 bricks a while back ( I think just before the Covid price explosion) and the crap FTF at least 2 rounds out of 50 in any gun I put it in. And I'm that guy that puts it back in the chamber clocked in a different position, because, well, sometimes that works. Not with that crap. But to the op's question, I bought my Buckmark in 2003, probably ran 20K or so rounds through it, all cheap bulk ammo, and I don't remember any serious failures. I'm sure there have been a few, but nothing that sticks out. And I'm also that guy who cleans his guns every year or two. The Buckmark just keeps on working.
