Best .22 ammo?

I have a 10/22 that i have been working on, just put on a .920" bull barrel and a trigger group and would like some suggestions on high quality ammo. Most of the shooting im doing now is from the bench. Any help would be awsome.

What are you doing specifically?

Are you in competition?

IMHO, if you are shooting a 10/22, you might as well use bulk ammo. You are (probably) going to be shooting under 100 yards, and that stuff works just fine.

Remember, you are using a semi-auto and not a bolt gun. You are going to loose some accuracy with the semi action that you would not with a bolt. Semi autos are sloppier than bolt guns, and it affects accuracy.

I have a 10/22 with an Adams & Bennett bench rest barrel, and it's as accurate as hell with standard Remington/Winchester bulk boxed .22 ammo.

Anyone have an extra trigger group or a source? Just bought one 10-22 with the krinker plinker setup today and the guy is going to sell me another complete 10-22 save the trigger group for $50.

So I needs one!

Brownell's, player! Build up a match trigger group for it!

Give me a dollar.

I don't blame them, it's hard to turn a profit on .22LR ammo.

Green Tag works wonders in my 10/22. The premimum target ammo shoots alot better in my gun than the bulk stuff...feeds better too.
