For those of you new to guns, the 10/22 is probably the best selling and most popular rim-fire rifle since its creation circa 1964. If you have been shooting guns for even five minutes(and don't already own one) you should immediately add one to your collection. Anyways, the question posed here, what is your favorite target bullet for the 10/22 ? Please include details like,your barrel size/type, group sizes, price point, consistency(no ftf's or fte's), cleanliness,etc. Personally, I think winchester's Dynapoint is the Bee's Knee's, grouping around 1.25" at 50 yds. in my standard blue barrel with slipover flash hider. However, a close second is the Eley sport(purple box cheap stuff $2.50-3.00/50) which duplicates the performance and reliability of dynapoint w/o the winchester price tag. If I had deep pockets, I suppose I would buy some Eley Tenex or RWS ammo but my favorites keep a little cash in my pockets and bullets on my shelves. Anyhow, thank ya'll for your time and I hope to get some good posts ! - Texmex

My 10/22 eats anything, is scoped and hits what I aim at. I agree, Federal does best but CCI is super, too. Off subject but my Ceiner conversion in the M4 Bushie dislikes Remington, FTFs about ever 5 rounds, never FTF with Federal or CCI....Whatzamatta with Remington? Don't they put in sufficient primer compound in the manufacturing process?

OK...my new favorite...the Eley Sport(purple box UK primed/mexican ammo). After 3 different sessions(over 100 rds ea.), only 2 fte hiccups and no misfires. Groups much better than almost anything I have ever put through it. For a stock gun(18.5" blued) w/a cheap-ass scope, this bullet does the trick. My next test for the Eley sport... to see how it will group in my new 10/22(16" factory blued bbl) with a hogue over-molded stock !

I have had some under 1 inch groups with my heavy barrel 10/22 using PMC Zappers at 100 yards however can't find that round now and I understand it was discontinued.

I had an old German K98 look alike single shot 22 that was a training rifle for the German army and there K98's. I could hit a spent 12 ga shell at 100 with that odd little rifle every time I tried. I always shot what ever was cheap ammo wise, mostly Remington bulk box. I miss that little riffle. My dad took it back for some reason.
