    That SSS 60-grain stuff has always intrigued me. In the past, there was a stretch of time when everything from Aguila was available for some good prices, intermittently, on Midway's site. The SSS was available for somewhere between $30 and $40 for a brick of 500 if I recall correctly.

    I had a box of it. It's kinda funny, it's like extra bullet stuffed in a .22 short shell.

    I tried it in three guns, but never saw any improvement over good ol' Federal bulk pack.

    Not to say it wouldn't be great in another gun.;)

    When I got it, I think it was about $6-$7 for the 50. I also bought a few other "higher dollar" ammo types to fiddle with...still got most of them.

    It is back ordered @ Midway, and now goes for $64 a brick :loco:

    I read, Ajole, where it is a big, long chunk of lead loaded into a standard 22s case. Prolly loaded to the brim with powder as well :D
