    Which Ammo to shoot through S&W m&p15-22? Ruger 10/22?

    Any recommendations on which of these to shoot through an M&P15-22? How about a Ruger 10/22?

    Taking the wife and kids and want to reduce fiddle fuck and optimize for fun.

    CCI Mini-Mags with the 10/22. That combo seems to work pretty well for me.

    CCI SV for everything in my house, including the M&P 15/22. Suppresses well, runs fine.

    I've never had minimags not be good. I'd start there.

    The CB Long probably won't cycle your semi-autos. Should be pretty quiet though and might be a good way to force single-shot safety for a new shooter, with minimal blast and noise (purposeful fiddlefactor).

    Of the Remington, the yellowjackets are a "better" round. Rem golden bullet seems to get a worse wrap, your guns may or may not run it well. I haven't shot a lot of it since I was a kid so its probably not an representative sample.

    When I draw, I don't deactivate the safety; I activate the danger.

    We are leaving in a couple of hours so I have to make the best of whatís on hand.

    Plus I have thousands of rounds of this stuff so Iím trying not to add to the pike.

    But if we ever run out of all of this, or it all proves to be garbage and gets thrown in the trash, Iíll look to restock with that stuff.

    Thanks!

    Iíve run tens of thousands of rounds of CCI Tactical through a bunch of 15-22ís. No malfunctions as long as you load the magazine correctly - except one OOB detonation that I donít blame on ammo.

    Another good one is Norma Tac, but itís greasy, literally. Maybe itís wax or something, but it certainly coats your fingers. I think that it shoots and feeds great, though.

    I have tried those all and any of those will work fine in the 15-22 or 10-22. Those guns are particularly non-picky with ammo.

    .22 and family/shooting newbies is why I have three rimfire cans and only buy standard velocity .22LR. So much fun to shoot.
