which weight of .22mag is the most consistant in a bolt action.
i have a pretty new marlin 883s. and rather than going thru a hundred
different weights and brands it would save me some money and time
if i could get some input from other shooters.
i shoot less than a hundred yards most of the time and i shoot small game.
ive heard some say the 40 grn is most consistant. i tend to like the heavier rounds for the smack factor.

My experience is that with rim fires, each rifle is its own animal. You should try a few types in your rifle and feed it what it likes. Once you find something that works, buy a lot of it and put it away.

My only 22WMR is a CZ452 American. Over the years, I have tried most commonly available WMR from CCI, Federal, Winchester and Remington in 30gr to 50gr. The 30gr and 50gr I have tried does not group as well as the 40gr. The best in rifle was the Winchester Supreme and the Remington Premiers, and grouped about 3/4 inch at 100yds on a good day. The standard Winchester 40gr silver box are very close.

My Ruger prefers Winchester Super X , 40 Gr. Jacketed Hollow points .
I've found it to work in just about every .22mag I've used and will stay under 1" in most.

Cooper Firearms tests all of their 22 magnum rifles for accuracy using Remington's 22 Mag 33 gr Premier AccuTip-V load. It uses a 33 gr VMAX bullet that is only available in this load.

Its pretty expensive, though.




Hornady makes a VMAX .22 mag load themselves, but their loading has a 30 gr VMAX bullet design instead. But it seems like one can find it available for less money.
