Yeah. Third bay is my shop.
I was wondering why you would have Stabil inside the house.
Have a CZ 455 Tacticool with a SWFA 10X somewhere around here and this thread has giving me some inspiration to take it out again.
Never bought any of that quality .22, just mostly plinked with CCI standard velocity suppressed. Might have to order some good stuff.
Actually, I've had pretty good luck with the CCI standard velocity stuff.
0.5 to 0.75 inches at 50 yards out of a couple of my rifles...most notably my SBR suppressed AR15 with a 5" barrel. Huge fun.
I bought a case of 5,000 of the Gemtech subsonic stuff that CCI makes for them that's almost identical, though not exactly.
Eley Club through CMP is 7cpr in a 5000 round case, two case per year limit for individual (not club) purchase.
Its pretty easy to go through 1000 rounds/month, so that’s a 10 month supply.
I can't say I've tried them all, but I've had the best results so far with CCI minimags.
With copper jacket rounds I seem to get the best groups with CCI HPs at 100 yards with my Savage A22. Some of my other rifles not so much. With lead, Rem Thunderbolts are the way to go. Try as many different types of ammo as you can.

The lesson from the last half dozen posts is that you cannot learn from any other shooter's lesson book.
Rimfire rifles have attitude.
Ya' just have, through trial and error, to see what they like.
Like a woman sitting at a bar. No one formula works for all players/shooters.
I got excited and played hookie this afternoon to go to the range.
Zero’d the CZ and started working it just to get rounds down the barrel.
There’s a lot to like with the CZ; it’s got a near-full size stock and with optic just feels solid. The interim optic (Bushnell Rimfire 3-9) is doing the job and is a great step up from what was on the 10/22, but it still has has a thicker reticle than I’d like. At 75 yards, the crosshairs will cover a 1/2” aim point. In exchange, it’s got a 22LR specific turret that is advertised to zero at 75, then dial to distance out to 150yds in calibrated markings in the turret. I’ll try that feature out later.
Best group of the day was .87” c-t-c at 75 yds, compared to the best group on the 10/22 of 1.2” @50yds.
That’s not apples to apples but a .4” reduction in group size is nice to see on day 1. Add to it that @75yds, I’m pretty close to the factory test target of .748” @50yds.
Obviously I’ve got room to improve my precision skills, but I’m confident this rifle will be a better tool for the journey than the 10/22.
