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 shot the following subs through my 455 Tacticool w/a SiCo Warlock:

-Eley
-Gemtech
-GECO
-CCI quiet

Haven’t had any issues thus far.

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.
I had the right to remain silent...

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.
