It's good ammo but you want to be careful how you store it for a long time. I have several bricks that I bought about 8-9 years ago that have corrosion on the lead bullet. They won't feed in my Mark II or my 1022. I found a fix. Empty about 5 boxes into a plastic bag and then soak them in WD-40 for several days. Dry them on a paper towel and they work just fine, no FTF' s or ejection problems. It worked for me and I was able to save throwing out almost 10 bricks. This is darn good plunking ammo, a little dirty but still worth the money even at today's prices.

I have run bricks and bricks of this ammo through 5 pistols and three rifles with absolutely no problems. I have probably had 2 out of 1,000 FTF's, and no feed or eject issues. Yes, it will leave powder residue in a short barrel but no leading. I have been shooting this ammo since it was $6.95/500rd brick. Can't tell you the exact date but it was a long time ago. I have and continue to recommend it to friends (at least those that clean their guns regularily) and they go back for more.

This ammo is NOT recommended for pistols, and for that model many other types of .22's.
Long story short, I needed to send my pistol back to Ruger as I could not clean the lead out of the barrel after shooting 30 rounds of this stuff. At first I thought the pistol was the problem, but as soon as I took it to the gun shop the first question that they asked was "please tell me you didn't use Thunderbolt ammo in your gun...?"
I am not the only one, run a YouTube search or Google search and you will see a very detailed explanation of the problem. It is known problem, don't mess with this ammo.

I've used thousands of these in 3 different Rugers without issue. I keep my guns clean and have not had any kind of problems with this product and plan to stick with them. Hollow points always jammed the feed ramp and these do not.
