Went to the range yesterday with my SR22 and ran Remington Golden Bullet 22LR 40gr RN and found my SR22 loved them. Always shot Mini Mags with good luck and will add the Golden Bullets as a staple. My Mark III 22/45 also cycles well with them so they are keepers for me.

I prefer the golden bullets in my SR22 as well ...
I am the one on the other forum that asked you what ammo you used in your SR22 and you recommended Golden Bullet 22LR 40gr RN. I tried them several times in my Mark III 22/45 and SR22's. This time I tested them at the range for accuracy out of my SR22 and really had good groups for a SR22. I thank you for your recommendation big time. My SR22 does eat anything but I like these and will stick with them. Good to see you here, I joined to get in touch with PNWruger and I just started to save for my first "P" series. I am getting a bit older(61yrs) and just in the past 2 years got back in to my semi autos and I think it is time I get a "P" series for the range. Nothing special just a 9mm for me the range and nightstand. After I get my Single Action I will be asking what "P"series to look for. I may have decided on a Single Six that will fit the bill and can't wait to get it. It depends on what this guy will take for it. Be safe and enjoy!

Welcome to this forum sir ... glad the Golden Bullets panned out for you. My biggest problem is finding them at a good price ... the LR ammo that might not work real well in my SR22 i use in my Single Six ...

Targe Sports USA has them for $69 a bucket. 05C/ rnd. That's the best price I've seen in a long time for Rem. Golden. I also like them. They shoot reliably and accurately.

My sr22 will fire any .22lr ammo from CCI Velocitors to crap bulk mystery bullets. The most tolerant 22 I own....well, tied with 10/22.

Glad you have great success with the bulk stuff. I do not. Mainly Winchester and Federal don't cycle well in my SR22 ...

My SR22 is a old one, bought when they first came out. Loves any ammo I feed it and jumps up and down with joy when it see's me bringing out the bucket of Remington Goldens.

*I know there are many that do use Golden Bullets. IMHO it is a good plinking and range round. My rimfires cycle it and I get good enough groups.
*The other good thing that is good about the Golden Bullets for us is they cycle and run in our LCP22LR's. So far we have put 500 plus rounds through ours and 200 of them have been GB's. Still testing the LCPII22LR's and having a blast.
*GB's work in our Mark III 22/45, SR22's and LCRx so it is great to have a plinking ammo for all of our Ruger's.
*Just enjoy the heck out of rimfire these past x2 years.
*rmichael63 recommended GB's to me last year and I have been buying them ever since. Glad I took the chance.

*We have one too from when they first came out. That one is my wife's "Safe Queen" with just less than 4k rounds.
*Mine has 8,700+ rounds and is x2 years old. ship date 2015?
*Easy to clean and will cycle any ammo I put through it. It is accurate enough for my needs.
*I have grown to like them and they have run quite well. I just am a fan of DA/SA autos and use the SR22 for double tap drills and training. Cheaper than .40 & .45 cal.

The SR22 has always been a extremely reliable 22.cal. I shot so many rounds through mine, that it was worn out. I wanted Ruger to do repairs but they said it was no longer under the usual warranty. However, they would, repair the gun but I would have to pay for shipping up to them and they would do the repair and send it back on their own dime. Which was more than fair. However I made a list of many parts and requested they send me the parts which they did. I replaced a lot of springs etc. Great Customer service. One of the odd characteristics of the SR22 is the fact that it has some crazy ability to not get very dirty. I personally do not like the weird trigger which Ruger makes in so many of their guns now. But life if full of give and take so just accept it.
Mine is not very accurate, but for fast shooting at center mass is all that is necessary anyway. It is not a target gun.

All this said, the best Semi auto that I have and as totally amazed me is the Phoenix HPA 22. My gosh this gun is one heck of a sweet shooter and extremely accurate with nice sights and trigger. I can do some serious fast shooting with this gun. And cannot agree more with Gun Test magazine that said the gun shot better than guns costing 4 times as much. Heck my first one cost me only $85.00.

There are many of these Phoenix HPA 22's out there and many of them cycle very well. You can not beat this Phoenix IMHO. When I tested our Ruger's there was a girl hitting very tight groups with a real old Phoenix next to us. She was a good shooter with any rimfire but with my old eyes and hands I could hit anything I pointed that Phoenix at. Love those darn things.

I do a lot of fast action drills. Here is one simple drill I use the Phoenix for. Very simple and can use anywhere. This day I used the Phoenix.

Take three or more targets and paste on a larger target. NOW as fast as you can possibly pull the trigger, move the gun to all three targets, double tap one, on top etc, then move to bottom or middle target. You MUST pull the trigger as fast as you have the ability too.
Every time I do this, when I am finished, I have been so focused, I am almost to a certain degree DIZZY. Takes me some time to refocus. But it is fun and really helps you learn to shoot without the sights.

10 yds Phoenix

Whiskeyshooter. Thanks for sharing this exercise. I have been shooting smaller firearms lately for fun and just to practice. I really like this one and will try this for sure. I double tap and practice point and shoot but very disorganized since I got pack to the range. Time to get more organized in my old age. Thanks!

The Wife does prety dang well with this combination:



These "Vipers" are a pretty good choice for a defensive round, if you only have the choice of .22 rimfire.

I've been using Aguila .22 supermaximum 30gr. in my new SR22. No problems so far but have only cycled about 100 rds. I am wondering if anyone else has tried them.

Not yet! They are 1700 fps and a hollow point so I at least have to test them. (My primary SD caliber is .9mm or 357/38 but have some 22's that I use too)
Range Team member swears by them and he is very accurate with that Aguila .22 SuperMaximum 30gr. round. He uses them for SD rounds->reports no feeding or extraction issues and reliable in his SR22.
*I for the most part do not use hyper velocity ammo in my smaller firearms. I am interested in testing this one though.
