I found some of this at one of the gun shops today. It's standard velocity plain lead if it doesn't show up in the pic well enough. I know it's old because most all of the Rem .22 I've ever seen has had the green/yellow box. Some green/orange, and green/blue if I remember right. I've never used much Remington ammo myself. I bought three boxes and shot one of them this afternoon. I meant to keep the target and post it too or at least measure it with calipers but I forgot and threw it away at the range:rolleyes: . Most of the box was used to try and get the barrel seasoned to some degree. The last ten rounds were used for grouping and they were about 1.75" @100yds in my CZ-452 w/8X scope. Anyone know about how old this stuff is? For whatever it's worth, the lot/batch number is 6122.
Thanks.

Thanks Bigmike. The brass has some discoloration from age. None of the 50 that I shot failed to fire and all were consistant.
I'm going to hang on to the other two boxes.
Thanks again for the info.

Thanks Crete. Found the lot #. I looked on the flaps before but didn't see it. The shop I bought this at had it for $1.49 per box. About a month ago they had probably well over 500 rounds of it. There were five by yesterday. I got three and thought someone else might want the rest.
