So, I decided to hop onto the .22 bandwagon, and bought myself a Savage 64 for a little over $100 at Dunhams. Took it to the range and loved it. Got a very nice grouping once I dialed it in of about 3 inches from 50 yards. Now the problem I am facing: I bought a 525 round pack of Remington Golden Bullet that was on sale at Dunhams for 14.95. And a small 50 round box of Federal. I shot about 15 good rounds of the Rem. until I started having issues. The 16th or so round exploded in the chamber. No harm was done to the gun or anyone else; luckily it was only a .22 and not anything bigger. So, I figured it was a bad round and kept going. It kept happening. I had about 10 that exploded at the primer out of 35. I had no problems what-so-ever with the Federal. Even after having 10 primers explode on me, I was able to fire 50 flawless rounds of the Federal, so I know the gun isn't the problem. Is Remington bad ammo for .22's? I took that box back and brought along the bad shells for proof and got a refund. Let me know if you want pics and I'll supply them. Right now it's a little late and I need my sleep. Just wanted to get this issue out there first.
