A box or two of .40, some .38, and a couple boxes of fudd calibers.

Anecdotal evidence is anecdotal, but I've fired thousands of rounds of Remington Golden Bullets with my Ciener conversion with only a handful of problems. Most of those problems were due to me not keeping the Ciener properly lubed.

Golden Bullets work fine with my Ruger Mark 1. Golden Bullets are turrible in my Spike's dedicated upper (it likes CCI or plain lead bullets).

horrible ammo. more failure to feed and more loose bullets than good rounds (resulting in the bullet bending in the cartridge), I won't load it in the 10/22 anymore. I have a couple boxes and I almost considered throwing them out. My 10/22 will eat anything else all day long.

No ammo cans of anything. The UMC 250 rd 45acp was also gone.
No Colts.

But according to clerk all of the above will show up eventually.

WalMart here in South TX (right now, today) has Winchester M22 22LR black plated 40gr 1000 rd box for about $45. (Maybe not a good price a month ago, but pretty good right now when most dealers are totally out of 22's.)

I have had bad luck in the past with Golden Bullets, but having friends buy them and then having just bought a few, I think they may have changed their recipe or something.

I had the same terrible performance before, but this latest batch runs really good.

FTR - The Rem Golden BBs work perfectly in my Walther P22s and Ruger 10/22s.

However, they and every other 22lr brand are not to be had in my local Wally Worldz.

Worth every penny.

People plop down a grand for a mid-grade 1911 without a thought and those guns still usually require
a trip to the gunsmith, upgraded parts and mags and a bunch of fuckwith to get it to run right.

Uhh...you'll crack the bolt face on the S&W41 if you keep feeding it HV ammo. The S&W 41 requires a steady diet of Standard Velocity only. Google it up. Folks with a lot more S&W knowledge than I will tell you. Moreover, the Remington Golds are notorious for busting extractors on semi-auto rifles. Remington is aware and was accepting returns on the ammo. Now they have New & Improved ammo, but it's yet to be dtermined, what, if anything, has changed.
