CCI Mini-Mag 40 grain. If I recall correctly I only had one failure in 8,000 rounds.

Remington thunderbolt is my favorite. I don't like the Aguila brand. OP ..I have the Ruger bearcat and the Ruger bearcat shopkeeper. Those are very nice pistols for the money.

+1

Though I haven't had a single failure with one yet, I haven't shot that many, either...

It's hard to beat CCI for .22 ammo. I do like the Remington Subsonic. It's pretty quiet and runs great in my AR Ciener conversion kit.

That's a large part of the reason why I don't shoot that much rimfire.

I even go so far as to start new shooters out with a lever action shooting a light 38 Special. I feel like it drills "I'm actually shooting a gun" into them more so than a 22(which some people seem to treat like a toy, even though of course it can be as dangerous as anything else), but is still very manageable and easy to shoot.

.22 ammo prices have come back down since the insanity. It's pretty easy to buy .22 for around $.03/rd which is the going price for primers.

I'm very fond of mine. Back when I was working on my grandmother's farm, I carried it in a cross draw uncle Mike's holster on my belt, and it was like it wasn't even there. Killed about ten rats in the barn with it using CCI shotshells. Mines an '04 model new bearcat, and I love the simplicity of it, the size and weight, and the elegant, Remington '58-esque styling. Only complaint, and really, not even a complaint, is it takes a minute for me to load it due to the tiny loading gate. But, you're not exactly going tactical with single action anyway, right?

+2. My Marlin 60 and my 1968 Marlin 99 m1 love the CCI mini mags. My Savage 17 hmr likes the Federal Vshock 17 grain.

Winchester Super X is what I prefer, but I have also had good luck with both CCI and Aguila, standard or high velocity, they all work about as reliably.

I use shotshell for killing our meat rabbits, you have to use it fairly point blank, but the easiest most humane kill method I could come up with.

Yes, for small animals at point blank range the shot Shell is excellent. I dispatched a few opossums last fall, and the CB shorts were my ammo of choice. I've used the shotshell with good success on rats.

And seems even Walmart has many flavors in stock at all times. How many years did it finally take for the horders to stop cleaning out the stores every morning. crazy

My 10/22 and S&W Victory absolutely don't like Remington Thunderbolt, the Buckmark doesn't care. I usually use CCI and Federal bulk ammo.
