Ok, I tried to compile as complete a list as I could...some of these I haven't heard of before...and I am sure I missed a few, but there are seventy-six choices so hopefully everyone can find something to their liking.

I was going to make this one long poll but just when I got started I found I could only post twenty-five choices per poll so I break this down into a plinking, target, and hunting poll. I know these choices will not satisfy everyone, so "Other Ammunition" is at the bottom of each list.

To shorten the three lists I had to make a few compromises. I am not trying to make any value judgements regarding a particular rounds suitability for plinking, target, or hunting. I was just trying to get down to twenty-five choices per poll. Please feel free to share your comments on the "Other Ammunition" in this thread.

Fiocchi Biathlon Match #M340 My favorite ammo for BR competition in 2 of my Czs.
Cool, I knew there was stuff out there I never even heard of. Where do you get that brand? I am from a smal town with no selection and have to drive twenty miles for bulk and sixty for target. Just started to do some online ammunition shopping, so far I have been using this supplier's list and this manufacturer's list.

Any other links would be helpful.

I like midwayusa.com. They sent me some ammo that broke out of the box, I called and told them about it, not to complain but to help them with shipping.
They apologized, sent me a new box, and let me piggy back some stuff I wanted with the shipment at no cost for shipping.

22ammo.com has lots of stuff too.

FWIW, I've pretty much settled on 2 different rounds that my rifle likes. Wolf M/T for "serious" target shooting and Fed AE 38 gr HP for everything else. (Although Blazers would be another "all around" cartridge. Cheap and fairly accurate...)

The Wolf MT and ME shoots about the same for me from my Annie, my Cooper, and my VQ barreled 10/22.

I haven't shot any of the high-priced stuff listed.

Federal ! ! !

I'm going to guess ammunition used by the Club" and "informal" target shooter is primarially choosen by one avaiability and second price ? \

"IF" my theory is correct, the use of Wolf MT & ME will drop be replaced by the "NEW" Federal 711b ! As the Federal is as accurate as the Wolf plus 1/2 the price ?
