I'm in complete agreement with you. I buy some cheaper stuff (Winchester Wildcats and Remington Thunderbolts) for plinking at tin cans, but CCI MiniMags are still my favorites. Rifle, revolver, or semi-auto. I've had great luck with all CCI ammo, Stingers and Velocitors included. They're not cheap, and as you can guess, I only like high-velocity rounds. Some might like sub-sonic rounds, but I have no interest in them."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."
