Welcome to the forum from the TV Oregon. :!:

Flinch wrote:I shot Remington Golden Bullet HP out of my Frontier. It is about the cheapest plinking ammunition I found in my area. Resting my elbows on a picnic table in my back yard I was able to consistently shoot 1" groups at 50 meters with the Golden Bullet cartridges. Golden Bullet groups opened up to 5" at 100 meters. The bullets might be running out of gas at that distance.

I sold the Frontier and just ordered a Golden Boy, because I like the way they look. I'll report back if accuracy is not the same with the Golden Boy.

CCI & S&B SV mostly in handguns, CCI velocitors for hunting in rifles, Lapua in the rifles if I am really chasing the last bit of accuracy. Federal value packs for plinking although I also use it for LA silhouette. Have never actually checked its consistency but have shot AAA grade scores with it and that is about my limit even on a good day.

I just picked up my new Golden Boy about 1-1/2 hours ago. It's cold, but there was zero wind. I fired 112 rounds of bulk pack CCI Blazer 40g RNL in my shooting area behind the house. I had zero malfunctions. Shooting offhand, CCI Blazer will shoot 10 shot 1-1/2" groups at 25 yards. It should group a little better off the bench. I'll report groups fired at longer distances when I have time to drive to the gun club.

You can add CCI Blazer bulk pack to my list of recommended ammunition.
