If you had to buy one type of ammo for 10 different .22lrs, what would you choose to give the best mix of accuracy and reliability? I'm leaving cost out since that's very subjective. Ignoring higher priced match ammo, and considering it will be used for paper punching, hunting, varmint control, and whatever else people use .22s for.

When I go out to try a new rifle, I keep finding that mini-mags always function, always shoot well, and don't break the bank. I know each rifle has its preferred ammo, but I've never seen one that flat out hated MMs.

Maybe call it your desert island ammo.

I've been afraid to try any of the Remingtons because of issues in the past. I'll pick some up to try again.

One thing I like about the MMs is that they give accuracy that ranges from acceptable to outstanding in every gun I've tried, and they always work.

The availability thing is great too. No need to order online or drive 50 miles one way in the snow uphill etc.

I've had the same experience with semis that didn't want to run with other brands. Seems if it wont function with MMs, it probably won't function with anything.

I like a few subs, but the problem is they don't function as well in semis. If we were to remove semi-autos out of the equation, I think MMs might be less appealing as an all around er... round.

When all I shot was a bolt action, my ammo choices were much less constrained.
