Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ruger American Had this ammo out today with my new American Rimfire along side a selection of other loadings. Three from CCI, some Winchester, Hornady, another from Federal and this. This box gave me the tightest groups, I'm not the greatest shot but this stuff gave me minute of squirrel all day long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bullet press I have a henry tube fed rifle and so far 8 shells out of one box have failed ,,just the tube spring is pushing some of the bullets down inside the casing ,, that's just the ones I found before they entered the chamber,, the qc dept needs to look into this and close the tolerances up on this area ,,not everyone shoots a bolt action,, someone is going to get hurt

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best 17hmr round I have found The 17hmr v-shock is a fantastic round, I get round on round when zeroing in my cz455, and the rabbits don't stand a chance and as for bigger vermin mr fox well they just roll over. Can't believe how a small round can produce such an impacted. Will be using these for a very long time. Thanks Andy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best for my gun I tried Hornady, CCI, Winchester, Remington, an Federal 17 grain v max bullets in my Savage 93. All of the brands did at least one MOA at 100 yards, but the Federals did 1/2 MOA. I have had problems with Winchester Remington and Hornady bullets. The Remington and Hornady would not eject about 20% of the time, and the Winchester failed to fire 3 times in a row on 2 different occasions. The Federal's had 0 misfires, ejected every time in 3 boxes, and grouped the best. It would be stupid for me to use a different brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five stars ***** I purchased a Marlin XT-17VR with the heavy barrel. Swapped the scope with a Nikon Prostaff, floated the barrel and lightened the trigger, prior to hitting the range. I'm pleased wit the gun and spent some happy time at the lanes, finding it's favorite ammo. If this will allow me to post my pic, the labelled target is attached. Far and away, this gun's favorite is federal 17 grain VMAX. Almost as nice, is CCI's TNT hollowpoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from varmints i was out for a walk yesterday and after seeing nothing i headed back to the house. I was visiting with my stepbrother when i noticed a skunk come out of hiding about 100 yds away. I put her in the cross hairs of my heavy barrel H&R and held dead on for a one shot one kill. dropped her like a rock. i just wish i had taken my camera.
