BTW, I just scored some 22LR ammo below from 1 Walmart:
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Federal-Ammunition-22LR-40gr-Auto-Match-325ct/17133655
($18.97+tax for 325 rounds)

I think I figured out how their local inventory works, at least based on what I was told by a couple of employees who placed orders for ammo, and me getting there first thing the following morning:
- Check walmart.com for local store inventory; make sure they are "Out of stock"
- At night about an hour or so before the store closes, check online for their inventory again; if you see it's "In stock" you can call and confirm that they have an order coming in the following morning
- Show up at the local Walmart store when they open (7:00 AM around here) and be first in line

After taxes and no FFL transfer fees, it's averaging at around $0.06/round of 22LR from Walmart.  That's much more acceptable.


I try to only buy S&B for all 34 of my cz rimfire/centerfire

I've been using a .22 caliber boresnake and jag with cleaning cloth on my 452's and while you have to shove, they fit through. Should I step down to a .17 caliber? Have I done any damage?
Czech it out!

Doubtful.

Heard and red lots of posts about you can't get a .22 cal rod past the Bolt Guide. HA, I can't get my old .22 cal B&M Rods in the bore. SO I opted for a pair .20 cal rods from Ivy. We'll see soon as they get here. And there's no way you can damage a 2.22 cal steel barrel with a patch, unless it's soaked in a bad acid.

You're to o. Shoot your rifle and enjoy it.

I shoot quiets in my American often with no issues.

I have the 455 synthetic 20" barrel....colibri's won't make it out of the barrel, super colibri's will. I've shot thousands of cci quiets with no problems ...they're actually pretty consistent.

I was told that the colibri was for revolvers and the super colibri was for bolt guns. they are fun to shoot and you get a good laugh when you watch them go s=down range.

It is funny to actually see a bullet down range! I've lobbed some CCI quiets out to 100 yards for laughs at a club I shoot at. Can see them arcing into the target too.
