Anyone else run into that with the Xpert HVs? I don't want to waste my remaining 500, but they didn't leave a good taste in my mouth....
Not all guns "like" all ammo. The Xpert HV's would probably shoot great in another gun.
.22 guns and ammo are known for giving different results in other guns, so many .22 shooters buy a number of brands, then shoot each to find the one that's most accurate/reliable in their specific gun.
As example, I once had a 10/22 that shot Remington standard velocity great, and a Colt Trooper Mark III that shot Thunderbolt great, but dirty.
Neither round shot well at all in the other gun.
I had an Anschutz Match rifle that I used to shoot practice matches with. It was some obscure off-brand of cheap British made ammo that was only imported for a few years back in the 1960's. It wouldn't shoot in any other of my guns.
