Couple of days ago had to go by Wally World*, and just out of curiosity went by the ammo case, and Lo! There were .22s there! The 225-packs of Remington Golden Bullet, but still the first .22 I've seen in the wild in quite a while. With 'New and Improved' on the side.
Well, they're far better than nothing, so got two boxes, and today tried them out best way I could think of, with the 15-22.
Reason? I've mentioned it before, that sucker has eaten every brand/type of .22LR I've fed it except the Remington GB. As in somewhere between 1/4 and 1/3 of the damn things wouldn't fit all the way into the chamber. And that's from a couple of different boxes bought at different times.
So today I put fifty rounds through. No misfires(a miracle there for Remington bulk-pack), no failures to feed, just bang-bang-bang.
Maybe Remington finally pulled their head out and started doing these right.
