I recently purchased a Mark II target pistol (512) and was wondering if there was any magical .22 ammo for it that I didn't know about. I've got a ton of cheap Winchester Super X, but I want to run some quality rounds through this one to sight it in. It'll mainly be used for plinking, small game, and converting my girlfriend to the "dark side." Any suggestions will be welcomed.

wolf makes excellent match rimfire ammo.

Every handgun is different, what works great in one may not be the best for the next one. However, I have found that the CCI mini mags work best in mine, followed by the Remington .22lr. Target ammo

For just shooting, plinking, I use Fed Match Target part no 711. Great stuff.

My Mark II likes the CCIs and the regular old Remington hyper-velocity (green & yellow box).

I cannot shoot the cheap winchester super X in my MKII. The flat front of the bullet catches on the feed ramp and jams every other shot.

All other ammo works fine, but NOT the cheap Super X.

I use mini-mags, I also used to shoot this green box S&B stuff, I was really impressed with it, but havent seen it for awhile.

CCI's stuff is consistently the best rimfire ammo I have ever tried. But my MK II will feed anything I give it...

Mini-Mags, for me. Winchester Power-points and Federal Lighnings in everthing else.

Expensive CCI "green tag" match ammo gave no noticable improvement on either of my MKIIs.
At $10 a box, I would have thought I found the elusive "magic bullet".
Buying a box of each brand/type to test for the best accuracy and reliability would be one way to find what your MKII likes but CCI mini mags or top shelf Winchesters would be a good starting point.
Each brand/type may require a click or two on the sight to zero it in.
One of my MKIIs hates hollowpoints, the other could care less.
IMO, when you do find what it likes, get at least a brick, saving you from rezeroing for each load.

.22's are real ammo sensitive. You can have two guns that are exactly alike, feed them the same ammo and have different results. I recommend that you buy one box of every kind of .22LR you can find and keep a record.
