who/what is your favorite ammo company? Why?

I am a huge fan of Remington green box ammo. Never had any problems and I find this brand in most stores( wally world-Mom&pop). It shoots great and will not break the bank.

will hunt for food....

Re: who/what is your favorite ammo company? Why?

Before I started reloading, it depended on the gun I was buying the ammo for. Mostly I tried to stay with Winchester. For my .22 though I am lucky because that old Remington bolt gun will shoot anything I put in it. For trap shooting though I use Gun Club and I think that is made by Remington. Double AA's are way too expensive.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Except for rim fire, I roll my own.
My favorite rim fire company was dcm/Canuck.
Lately I have been buying CFO standard vel

Used to shoot Remingtons all the time, switched to Hornady a few years ago and love them. They shoot very nicely for me and are more consistent IMO.

I uually buy big green but for reloading I prefer WW cases if I can find them. RF is also usually Rem or WW with some Federals thrown in.

A neighbor gave me a couple boxed of them Canucks several years ago. There were so many misfires and squibs that I ended up giving them to the range officer for disposal. Also, the burned powder smelled very acrid so I think they were probably very old or a bad lot.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Re: who/what is your favorite ammo company? Why?

Remington Core-Lokt's are the most accurate factory loads out of my '06 and one of the 30-30's, Winchester gets the nod for the other 30-30.

As far as rimfire ammo, I use either the Remington or Winchester bulk pack ammo for plinking with the kids. For hunting, 3 out of the 4 .22's are most accurate with CCI Mini-Mag Hp's and second best in the other one. So that's what I use.

Don't let the name fool Ya!

Re: who/what is your favorite ammo company? Why?

I shoot a variety of ammunition and see which one my gun likes. Doesn't matter much what I like, if it doesn't shoot well in the gun then I find something else. I have been using Alan at www.preciserifleammo.com to load me up some special stuff, and I've found that it shoots extremely well. Overall accuracy rules over loyalty to any one brand, shoot them all and let your rifle decide what it likes the most.
