22 rifles are generally finicky as to what they like. Best to buy a few 50 round packs, to get an idea of what your rifle prefers? The only 22 I have that shoots just about anything pretty well, is a Ruger American.
Going back over the past 40 years, if there's one type of ammo that most of my 22s favor for decent accuracy, it'd be CCI Mini Mags. Some of them do better with another type of ammo, but most do fairly well with this ammo.
I have a Romanian 1969 trainer that probably cost around $50 many years ago. Ugly as sin bolt action. When I was messing around with it originally, tried some of every kind of ammo I had. Which was at least a dozen different loads, including some fairly pricey target stuff, like RWS and Wolf Match Target.
That thing shoots the best 50 yard groups with WW Wildcats and some of the worst groups with the Wolf.
One of my 10/22s loves the Wolf, another one likes CCI SV and Mini Mags. Even shoots pretty well with Federal bulk pack 550 count stuff. Noticed the other week that Walmart has that in stock again, after a two or three year hiatus.
Try out what you can find, one is bound to do well?
