I recently started buying more Aquila .22 ammo. Its rapidly becoming my favorite. I buy the Super Extra. The red, yellow and white box. I've run it thru my MP 15-22, 10/22, SR22 and MP22 and all 4 guns run thru it flawlessly. I find it on par with CCI.

I use CCI blue standard velocity in my Smith 41 for bullseye shooting. In my 22 rifles and my revolver I use what ever is on sale.

Mini mags are good stuff. My preference is 40 gr. Winchester super X. I have found it to give acceptable accuracy in every gun I've tried it in. But you know how .22s are...never can tell what will work the best.

I try to keep some Fed, Remmy, Winch Super X, Mini mags, & Stingers all the time. Mostly cause the .22s I have are all picky about ammo. And every time I get a new one,I have to try just about every brand to find the best one for feeding with the auto loaders. The revolvers are not so picky. I don't have any Aquila. Maye I need to get some.

I have tried the whole spectrum of Aguila .22 LR ammo in my RAR, 10/22 and Heritage. All shoots good. I've even been impressed with their centerfire ammo to.

Wasn't that long ago it was the only rimfire ammo you could find around here.

I'm not a brand snob. I'll shoot anything that my guns like.

Recently tried some GECO rifle, semi-auto and match rimfire. Found my Heritage really likes the GECO match.

I still have very vivid memories of 2 or 3 years of not finding any 22 ammo to buy locally . None, nada , zip..... and when some ammo was available you were only allowed to buy two 50 round boxes.....Two , that was it , no more.

My favorite ammo is whatever brand is on the dealers shelf . I've learned not to be a ammo snob.... I'll take whatever I can get .

I bought a brick at a gunshow last fall. Hope to try that stuff out this spring.

No more Remington Thunderbolts for me. It took four firing pin hits to get this round to make any noise:

Ahh yes, good ol' Thunderduds...You can always count on one or two of those in every box.

It's Super X or Mini Mags for me. And my secret weapon that nobody else seems to like - the 38 grain American Eagle hollow points. I have great luck with that stuff. Almost as accurate as MiniMags, just as reliable, and fairly cheap. What more could I want?

I don't really have a favorite rimfire ammo. I just use what each gun likes best.

My Single Six (LR Cyl) shoots better than me when using Federal bulk pack 36 gr HP ammo.
I've tried most of what Win makes along with other Fed, Mimi Mags too. None of it shoots as well as the the bulk pack stuff.
As for .22 Mag's in the Single Six: Win 40 gr, CCI 40 gr, CCI 30 gr and Hornady 30 gr all shoot great in that gun. No favorites there.

These days the 10/22 prefers CCI 36 gr HP Mini Mag ammo. Early on it liked Win 36 gr HP bulk about as well as Mini Mag's. I don't know if the rifle's changed or the ammo changed but it's Mini Mag gun now.

Don't remember trying Thunderduds in any of the rimfire guns I've had...
But I'm not a Remington guy, so there is that.

Way back in the '80s, when my boys were young; I bought 2 Daisy .22LR. ( now, they are Cricket ). 1 of those Daiseys loved Thunderduds, would consistently group about an inch at 50 yrds. The other shot about 4" groups and preferred Yellowjackets.
