At a gun show a few weeks ago.

Ammo is made in Russian by LVE, 30 gr. hp bullet, 1451 fps, Nickel plated steel cased.

Being hyper V ammo with a big Hp I am sure it would put some hurt on a tree rat.
I wish I could have bough some more then 1 box of 50.

Also bough some ammo made in China.....first for me to ever see any.

I found these (2) comments while searching on Google.

I've never really ran into any bad 22 ammo( 1 or 2 failers per 1000) ... just dirty. There use to be this company that sold 100 rounds in chewing tabacco containers... now that was some dirty stuff.

I think that stuff was called spit-fire or something like that. It was dirty. Worst I've ever seen was this Russian "Surok" stuff with an aluminum case.

Overall, I've had good luck with .22 ammo. I stick mostly with Federal bulk pack JHP for plinking, Federal American Eagle 40 grain LRN when I want to go a little more expensive, and CCI mini mag's when I really need reliable .22 ammo.




Surok .22 LR Hollow Point Hunting Partial Box Made In Russia. Partial contains 48 rounds. Light shelf wear, overall good plus.

That's funny....but probably true.

I just collect the stuff for my Russian ammo collection whether good or bad.
A few years ago I bough some these @ the same local gun show. (Made in France)
