at least one out of ten missfires
after purchasing 5000 rounds of this ammo I cant wait to get rid of it. Shot it in a new S&W 41 and thought it was the gun at fault. Not so. Other ammo worked fine. Also have trouble with it in my Ruger.
I should have read the reviews. 4 out of every 19 rounds would jam, misfire, fail to feed and most common, failure to eject.
Every 2 or 3 shots id have to clear the gun. On a multiple guns. Even the Ruger 10/22 that will shoot anything had multiple problems. Every few seconds there is a problem. Frustration Frustration Frustration!!!
I now have 7 bricks serving as paperweights.
Constant jams with this ammo
We use Smith & Wesson Victory pistols as trainers for our new shooters. They are extremely reliable, easy to shoot and great trainers. With this batch of ammo we have had hundreds of failure to eject problems where we had to force a rod through the chamber to eject the spent casing. Love Love Love Lucky gunner - but this particular batch was just not good and resulted in a pretty poor experience for our students. I will stick with copper jacketed .22LR cartridges moving forward, as I think that the open lead bullet in 90 degree heat may be contributing to the failures.
Cheap, non functional, dangerous ammo
More than 30% of this ammo (1st 3 bricks) failed to fire using a Ruger Mark IV Competition pistol. The officers at my range gave me two brands of .22 long rifle ammo. No misfires. Each casing had a tap mark on the rim. Shot 150 rounds, all the same. I bought 5000 rounds of this ammo. Each misfire has to be ejected, which requires engagement of the safety, ejecting the misfire, reassuming position, disengaging safety and then firing. This type of ammo failure is dangerous. I have purchased a large amount ammo for other pistols through Lucky Gunner. This ammo is a abject failure
I picked some of this ammo up from my local shop because it had the least amount of wax coating. My ruger mark iv has magazine loading issues with heavily waxed rounds. The was one of the best feeding rounds I've used but that is the only good I have to say.
Out of 200 rounds I had 1 that was bent out of the box and 2 that were duds.
I also had absolutely horrible lead fouling in my barrel. I pulled a roughly 8 grain chunk of lead out of my barrel after shooting only 200 rounds out of a previously spotless gun. Shots were keyholing the target at only 25 feet.
Out of all the cheap ammo I've tried this has been the second worst next to Aguila super extra which experienced major feeding issues.
I had to throw my 10 cent's worth into this debate on Winchester Wildcat ammo, and from the first let me say I use more ammo that the average with 4 of us shooting sage rats in Eastern Oregon, I have a bunch of Winchester Model #52s in various barrel types up the bull barrels, we did a lot of research looking for inexpensive ammo that would be accurate al 100 yards and would still have the hitting power at that range.
We have shot over 5.000 rounds on many a three day trip and as we are all pretty competitive, we went looking for the right ammo with intense dedication to the task. We tried various Winchester and Remington ammo and pretty mush any brand we could buy in a specialty Sporting Goods store.
We found that all the #52 with the same ammo shot the same, regardless of the barrel size but when the barrels were hot, the reason for the bull barrels were pretty obvious and while we all had 20 power or larger Lyman or Unerty scopes we did enjoy two sessions at a friend’s 100 yard range trying out all the ammo.
Remember our criteria was both accuracy and hitting power, and while the Fiocchi ammo was by far the most accurate, it had no velocity at 100 yards, it was not what we wanted. Out of all the others the one we all decided on was the Winchester Wildcat as it was the most accurate with the required velocity at 100 yards.
Before I moved to Samoa, we used three Model #52 Winchesters to shoot over 5,200 rounds in one day, and killed over 4,000 sage rats on one ranch, and it was with this ammo that I shot a fly that happened to land on one of our targets at 100 yards! Without a witness I would have never have been able to say that.
Remember we are all shooting this ammo through bolt actions and very rarely do we have a feeding problem, I have never had a misfire!
Good Training to clear jams
Based on other reviews I was expecting this ammo to perform well. That was definitely not the case. I used it in three different guns that have performed very consistently with other ammo. This stuff would fail to eject and jammed in all three guns around 30% of the time. This would probably have been fine for my old Remington single shot .22 rifle, but that gun got stolen.
These seem to be good for all around plinking. I only have a 10-22 with a STOCK barrell, so can't expect tack driving performance. We have an aspirin shoot at 50 yards coming up so I will let you know how they worked.
They do seem more accurate than the Rem Thunderbolt.
Lucky Gunner ROCKS!!!!
I purchased the case late Wednesday night and it arrived Saturday morning. Tracking allowed me to ensure I was home to sign for the package. The price was comparable to what I would pay at local sporting goods stores, but the convenience of having 5000 rounds delivered to my doorstep made it worth paying the shipping fee.
Bought 5000 rounds of this Winchester Wildcat .22LR from LuckyGunner and it was shipped to my door within three days. Good price and fast shipment, so no complaints there. This was my third LG purchase and I'll be back for more.
I've only shot a few dozen rounds, but the ammunition performed well in a Ruger Mark III Target. Reliable feeding/ejecting and sufficiently accurate for plinking and practice. One bullet was deformed (missing nearly half of its material) and had to be discarded. I haven't inspected the case but so far it is the only defect.
GREAT service and pricing
This is my second order with Lucky Gunner and like the first one the service and price cannot be beat. Absolute great website and company. Can't recommend enough. I post this site all over all the forums I'm on and Facebook. Super deals, wholesale pricing. My gun dealer said he gets his ammo at these prices.
