Surprised no one has mentioned BLAZER. I find it cycles well, consistent velocities, accurate and reasonable price.


Clean traps,tight lines,straight shooting

I shop the Dunhams specials pretty hard too.
They seem to have a deal every week anywhere from $15 to $17.
Sometimes thunderbolt, sometimes golden, sometimes Federal range and field, sometimes Armscor.
If I happen to be heading to Janesville, I usually get a little something there.

For plinking they will work, if you can't find anything else to shoot. 22's are no longer hard to find. Keeps your eyes open and you will find much better shells for the same price.

It's great that we can finally be picky!! It wasn't too long ago that they couldn't be had at any price.

I think it was Obama that said, "If you like your .22lr... you can keep it.".

The CCI Blazers mentioned earlier are a much better round IMO. I’ve used a lot of Thunderbolts in the past and never had an issue, until I got a bad lot. The same gun that I used to “cut my teeth” on over 30 years ago had several issues with them. To be fair, this was during the “shortage” so QC may have fallen off drastically for a bit seeing as production was running full tilt but they really left me high and dry to say the least. 3 out of every 5 I’d shot would split from where the bullet was crimped in to about halfway down the case. Prior to that, I’d had no issues. It just left a bad taste in my mouth and I’ve not looked back at them since.


I keep desperately hoping that one day someone will call me "Sir" without adding "please calm down" or "you're causing a scene."
