My Walther P22QD loves these. Inexpensive for plinking (5-6 cts ea.) no FTF, FTE and minimum fouling. Walther P22QD.jpg

Glad to hear. Most people seem to dislike Remington .22LR ammo.
I've never shot Goldens but all my .22 handguns had no issues with the couple of boxes of Thunderbolts.
We shoot M&P .22's and a Sig Mosquito. I think I had only 1 FTF in the Sig out of one box of 500 and accuracy is good enough
for range plinking.

The CCI minimags also work well...but cost is almost double the Goldens. The Winchester brand was the worst for me.
Guess there's no 1 type that is 100%perfect. for every gun.

I never understood all the hate for Rem Golden Bullets. Years ago I bought about 1500 rounds from someone on the Trading Post. I wish he could've sold me more. Came out to about 0.03 cents a round. Occasionally there would be a "click" instead of a Bang. Some folks just toss them away. There's an easy fix: turn the rim around 30 degrees to strike a fresh surface. The round ALWAYS fired - at least for me.

I scored 10 or so of the 225 round boxes during the post-Sandy Hook ammo *crisis* even though I hardly ever shot either of the 22s I owned at the time. Golden Bullets are by far the most accurate bulk round out of my S&W Victory. I've had the occasional click instead of bang but cannot think of any ammo (especially rimfire) that does not happen to.

I still have a box of goldens with the price tag from the hardware store on it at $9.99, which was overpriced at the time, I just refill it with a new box because I love the old price tag...haha

I tried a box of Goldens again after they claimed to have improved them a few years ago. I had 10% that caused a Ruger Single-Six to jam. The rims were too thick. Unbelievable.

I've got stacks of 525 rd. bricks of Golden's that I'll trade for Thunderbolts 1 for 1. My MAC M11/9 with the .22LR conversion eats T-bolts like no tomorrow but suffers high rates of FTEs with Goldens.

Would love to, but I'm in Reno (Sparks) with no plans to be in Vegas area soon. Freight would eat us up unless you know an alternative method of transport.
