What ammo

are you using?

A list and comments of the ammo you have tried, liked/disliked would be appreciated.

Would give me a good starting point to try some of the better shooting stuff.

Mid-grade clean consistent and commonly found = CCI Std. Velocity

Step up = SK Std. Plus - I rarely buy anything more expensive.
I tried every other one mix with CCI Std. Vel. and SK Std. Plus and shot amazing groups and feel I am utilizing the SK Std. Plus lube to an advantage with that mix.. and shooting great groups cheaper... seems weird but sure works.

Plinking = any Federal or American Eagle and good ol' CCI Blazer shoots real decent as well.

Stay away from Rem. and Win. = IMO it is junk.

I have tried a lot and went KISS with CCI/SV.
But I am just a can-plinker compared to a lot of the pros on this site.

I don't have any use for standard deviation.
It is a number that is a calculation of what will happen with 2 out of 3 shots.
I care about extreme spread, the high and low mv's from a box of 50.
That to me is a better indicator of the quality of that batch of cartridges.
