Bring back yellow jackets/ stingers n such.


swampgas chili and schmidt beer makes for a deadly combo

They are terrible. I bought 2 boxes to try in my new pistol. Basically turned it into a single shot. Just looking at the cartridges, you can tell there is NO quality control.

Use a pump or bolt action rifle. Have a single six Ruger pistol, shot many brand .22 with no issues.

Almost through an entire box of 500 of Thunderbolts and not the first malfunction in a semiauto rifle or a revolver. Midway used to put them on sale every Spring and Iíd order a couple of boxes each time they did. Been good for me, although Iím not target shooting, just use them on the trapline and shooting hogs.

The Remington golden bullets were my all time worst in my experience.

These are a little pricey but the accuracy is there. Feed fine in picky semi's also. Not as pricey as say ten x and likely not accurate enough for competition, but consistently shooting a squirrel in the head at 50 yards? They will do that.
