    What industry apologists. I've never seen so many excuses strung together in a single "article" in my life. LOL

    It's amazing that I've had so many go 'bang' I guess :loaded:

    I couldn't care less--I want my .22LR for $0.03/round!

    Amazing it works at all. Glad I can afford the "good" stuff. Not going back to Remington gold no matter what. Hopefully CCI will continue pumping out minimags and std velocity for the remainder of my lifetime so I can keep the better guns running.

    I think these manufacturers are doing a pretty good job, if its really that difficult, I can count the number of times a .22 Lr bullet failed to fire on just one hand. I do remember some ones that scared me because the bullet seemed weak and went poof, instead of bang...Had me worried if a bullet in that lot might get stuck in a barrel.

    Great article.

    With all the negatives and downsides and design flaws I'll predict the 22rf will never be a commercial success.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'll avoid the cartridge altogether!!!

    :)

    I think this has been posted before....a lot of manual labor goes into .22 rim fire ammo....
