Winchester 22 ammo


Recommended Posts

Just finished plinking off a box of 42 grain winchester subsonic ammo . On first inspection rounds appeared to have different sized hollow points and lacked uniformity. Had half a dozen out of the 50 go supersonic and had to remove a spent case stuck in the chamber. Has the quality control with wnichester  now being made in the us gone out the window or did I get a bad batch . Never had issues in days gone by with the australian manufactured stuff. Winchester always had a great reputation for knockdown power . Any experiences ?

Stopped using them a few years ago.

I came to the conclusion that if it was choice between them and a cattie I'd choose the catties!

Why they shut that plant in Australia I'll never understand.

I stopped using Winchester for the same reason, very inconsistent with the size of the hollow point, switched to CCI, the work well through the little CZ, recently got 500 Norma and I’ve only used a dozen or so but they seem good

I've been using them for 16yrs in my CZ American the only trouble i have had is the spent cases getting stuck in the breech/chamber.

But i put that down to me not ever cleaning the barrel. I have just bought a CZ 457 so i will see how that goes with them.

Can’t beat Norma or eley in 457

I don't think they have been making the new Winchester ammo that long??

Have you bought any eley recently vm? They were my first choice for years, but recently not so good, I’ve tried them again a couple of times and I gave up on them. Hopefully they’ve improved?
