    local guy found me saying he has 40000 rounds of Remington thunderbolt for sale in 50 round boxes... I offered him a buck a box. Doesnt look like its; the best ammo on the planet, anyone have any experience with these beyond general plinking?

    I have many bulk pack boxes.. I would be buying this for the cheap factor. I put at least 1500 .22 rounds downrange a week.

    Thunderbolts are fine as long as your gun feeds them properly. $1/box is a decent deal. I'd go for it :dunno:

    Might work as plinker stuff, but I dunno.

    I won't buy the stuff, and consider it some of the lowest quality ammo available. From my experience:

    - Don't even try to shoot it out of an automatic
    - It will KILL a P22, in an amazingly short amount of time
    - I've never seen any bullets lead a barrel like T-bolts
    - Terrible ES/SD numbers, with requisite vertical stringing

    You shoot old Mossy's if I remember correctly, so it will likely F/F out of your gun well enough to shoot (expect a higher percentage of duds than normal). You will likely have to clean your barrel with the frequency of a OCD BR shooter, to help remove/ward off said leading. You will likely lose any matches you enter, based on said vertical stringing.

    So yah, I hate the stuff. If your in a pinch, I guess it would work though. Be aware of the leading, and keep an eye out for it - that shit's not easy to get out once it starts building up.

    Not really and I should clarify.... I put a box of bulk downrange and a few each of different high quality ones, the wife does the same. There's 1200 easy. Sometimes we burn through another box of bulk, but in addition to that we each at least put a box or two of handgun ammo downrange a week too.

    I get at least 2-3 duds per box and its even dirtier than normal .22. Many semis wont feed it and even my henry acts up with it.

    You maybe could pay me $100 to take it and dispose of it.

    I've shot a few squirrels with them between 30-50 yards, but they are about as far as you can get from match grade. I just use them for general blasting away at shit in my GSG-5.

    And as kf4zht said, they are dirty as hell, but not a problem if you clean your gun regularly.

    My P22 HATED thunderbolts. I'm skeptical about even feeding them through my 10/22. I have a bulk pack that I'll probably end up just stashing for emergency, last of the last, zombie defense...

    This is enough to convince me to never use Thunderbolts ever again.

    I have 3 of those 550 packs. :hs:

    I figured i'd just use them sparingly and clean thoroughly after every 50 rounds or so.
     
  20. That is some filthy shit.
