Hi,has anyone tried the Remington yellow jacket 22 HP ammo? my local dealer has some in stock at a reasonable price(well, for the UK anyway!!) and I would like members feedback if possible before buying, I would be using in my Cz Varmint 20" barrel for vermin at around 80-100 yds. thanks,

When Steve Boelter tested them for his book, he indicated they were probably not accurate enough for small vermin beyond 50 yds. However, he said they had "devastating effects" when tested on potaotes. Most Remington ammo has had accuracy issues in recent years... not the quality of the old Remington/Peters ammo of years ago.

The few I have would not feed through a semi-auto, but a bolt gun should not be a problem. Any of the truncated cone bullet cartridges could be a problem in semi-autos.
