Winchester® 333 Value Pack
Bang for the buck.
Having the need for several hundred rounds of .22 ammo, I purchased two Winchester 333 bulk packs. I inspected the lot for uniformaty, and it was excellent. No malformed bullets, no misfires, and it grouped quite well. I wish the two old High Standard pistols had been of the quality of this ammo. For this reason I did not use the match ammo yet, but with new clips, I am sure I will be completely satisfied with the result. This is high quality ammo perfect for the tests I performed.

Very poor ammo.
This ammo is poor quality and I think even poorly designed. I shoot semi auto .22 pistols, revolvers as well as semi, bolt, and SS rifles and this stuff doesn't even perform very well in my bolt action rifles.
IMO here is the problem. The bullet is too loose and combines with a squared front shoulder they do not reliably feed into the chamber of most semis. Often they not only FF but then they bend where the bullet meets the case. This renders them useless. Remington Gold bulk sometimes has bullets that spin in the case but they aren't so loose you can wiggle them back and forth like Winchester bulk plus Rem has a rounded bullet. Those perform well in all my guns.
I have a Ruger Mark 1 that will digest anything including standard velocity and truncated cone. It won't reliably feed Winchester bulk to the extent of 1-2 FTF per magazine. My PT-22 has a 40% FTF rate.
I would have to be very desperate to buy any more of these since everyone I know has the same experience I had with my 2 different boxes. The supply I have remaining now only gets used in a single shot rifle and a revolver.

First off let me start by saying these things are good quality and worth every penney, compared to some. "Remington 525 pack". I found there to be about 25, give your take, that did not work right or function well at all. However, 25 out of 525 not working or functioning right is a ratio of 1 for every 21 shots give or take. Where as "Remingtons" is more like 1 out of every 5 or 6. So i would get them, you wont be sorry.

Multiple miss fires
20%-25% failure rate. With both a new and older gun, shot Remington 15 minutes before that was 10 years old with less misfires. Very poor quality control.
