Remington .22 WMR Ammo
Remington Premier Magnum Rimfire
I have been contemplating purchasing a .17HMR rifle for some time. I have owned a Ruger 77/22 in .22 WMR for 20 years. I have always wished for premium ammo in .22 WMR to maximize performance in my Ruger. With the advent and success of the .17 HMR, Hornady came out with a .22 WMR caliber bullet in the same design as the .17 HMR. A friend mentioned to me they saw Remington was making a premium .22 WMR cartridge as well. Before I bought a .17 HMR, I wanted to see what kind of performance I could get with my .22 WMR. I purchased a couple boxes each of the Hornady 30 gr and Remington 33 gr ammo to compare.
I shot five 5 shot groups with each brand using bench rest @ 100 yds. The Hornady ammo averaged 1.4" groups(center to center) with the best group at 1.03". The general groups were great but there would be an unexplainable flyer in almost every group. The Remington ammo averaged 1.16" with 2 of the 5 groups at .760". Based on this, I will not be needing a .17 HMR. With the premium ammo and an aftermarket target sear, my Ruger M77/22 is a keeper after all. Hornady is manufacturing the bullets for Remington as well as their own ammo. But the 33gr Remington ammo shot the best for me. I can give this 2 thumbs up!

Accurate & Reliable
After having tried nearly every brand of 22WMR available in my custom LH Precision 10/22M rifle, I have found the Remington 33 gr. Accutip-V to be the ammunition that cycles through my rifle with the greatest reliability and consistant accuracy. I am so satisfied with it that I bought a brick and would seriously consider a case if I found a good case discount.

Remington .22 WMR Ammo
Went to the range and sighted in my Marlin bolt .22 mag with the PSP rounds. After making adjustments to my 1970 vintage Leupold 2-7X power scope, the next 10 rounds were in a circle the size of a nickle. Performance ammo at a reasonable price. Well done Remington. Plan on shooting yotes and hogs with combo.

New R22M2 Ammo is great!
By sheer dumb luck I was shopping online at Bass Pro a couple of months ago when the new Remington 22 mag ammo came available. I got a brick and what a pleasant suprrize when I tried it out! Big improvement over the old accutip loads at a measly 1340 FPS. I have shot 300 rounds of the new 1910 FPS soft point loads with no problems and good groupings in my kel-tec PMR-30 pistol. My son also used some in his savage 22 mag rifle and got good patterns with that also. I'll buy more when available!
