    What is the word on WinchesterM22? Good/bad for qualifying for a Marksman merit badge.

    If I had my choice, standard velocity ammo would be used. Typically more accurate than high velocity.

    it works well in all of my .22s, but I wouldn't use it to qualify.

    I have not had good luck with it, but I havent shot any in a few years either. It could have improved but I doubt it.

    I have shot almost 3000 rounds of it with no issues. It was decently accurate too. I was using a 22lr AR upper with an 18" stainless barrel.

    Its good plinking ammo. The Browning .22 ammo is the same ammo as the M22

    Decent accuracy so far for me,but still just a plinking round or a squirrel getter

    Thanks for the info. I have been collecting 22 rounds for a couple years with the intent to make available free to any Boy Scout that is trying to earn a Marksmanship merit badge. I remember hearing of a scoutmaster or two that was having a difficult time finding ammo for his boys when they could not be found 2-3 years ago. If the same thing happens again after this election I don't want the Scouts to suffer for it.

    I picked up a box of this today at the Walmart in High Point for $50.87. At a nickel a round, it should be ok for my plinking.

    There should be some good karma coming your way. Good for you for doing this.
