why can't I get this shipped to Jersey? i've had ammo shipped to me no problems many times before from other sites?

corpulent 02-11-2011 03:22 PM

Think there's only 2 boxes left. . .

MileMarker81 02-11-2011 10:10 PM

As soon as I try to join in the fun, Sold Out.

If it weren't for bad luck....

VooDuuChild 02-12-2011 04:18 AM

Yeah, Quickie62 bought the last. They're out of both Mini-Mags, the 40grainers and the hollow point 36 grainers. Y'all keep checkin in daily on their site, I'll bet they get re-upped pretty quick.

These are hollow points. I believe hollow points are illegal in NJ. Can't have criminals running around with those dangerous .22 hollow points. :eek:

TAKticool 02-12-2011 10:43 AM

Hollow points are legal in NJ , it's illegal to use them illegally.... in other words, if you do something illegal While using Hollowpoints, you get in extra trouble, its a n addon charge, but perfectly legal otherwise.

Somehow that's makes perfect sense knowing it;s NJ. :D

I know a lot of you guys like Mini-Mags. If you're just shooting at paper you might consider trying CCI Standard Velocity and compare for accuracy.

Federal champion
 
Just 1050 rds for $29.00 at gander mnt. last night works out to just under 3 cents a shot they are copper plated hollow points 1260 fps 36 grains It seems to be a great deal if you have a gander mnt by you I would check it out for normal plinking

Not so cheap at Luckygunner.com I'd try elsewhere.

I know that this is an old thread, but it comes up top in Google results for Mini Mags bulk so I thought I'd add my experience.

I recently bought my first gun, a S&W 422, and took it to the range here in Philly. All they had in 22LR was Mini Mags, so I bought two boxes. The bullets seemed to go exactly where I pointed the gun, and I was able to put 5 of my first 10 shots in the center ring with the Mini Mags at 45 feet.

The following weekend I went to my buddy's club. We went to Dick's and picked up a box of CCI Standard Velocity (500 for about $32 after tax) and I can tell you that while the rounds cycle flawlessly in my gun, they were hitting about 6-8" low at 50 feet. I confirmed this by shooting at pie-plate sized knock-down targets resting my wrist on the table. I had to aim well above the targets in order to hit them, which was *not* my experience with the mini mags.

I'd use the standard velocity for closer work, maybe plinking spinner targets at closer range, but at 50 feet with a paper target it was pretty unsatisfying to see all the holes so low on the target.

Kayback 07-02-2012 01:35 PM

Umm , why not re zero for the slower ammo? You know, like you should.

Couple of clicks on the sight and the rounds would be 8" higher, or where you were aiming.

Would if I could, buddy. My 422's sights won't compensate for drop.

BP_Z28 07-03-2012 09:04 PM

Took the rifle out today to break her in with some cci mini mag then a box of fed. I jammed about 9 times with the CCIs :( I dont know why. Not once with feds.

Fed .22 still has lube on it also as does every variety of .22 ammo. Some just have more and different lube than others.

photoracer 07-04-2012 03:48 AM

In my PC model it does not like Mini-Mags as well as my pistols (FTF issues mainly). It prefers CCI-Tactical and Win M-22. It was good with Fed 550 for awhile but Fed 525 Champion also gave me several FTFs.
As for copper washed vs. lead it is not an important issue in .22 ammo. The bullet lube keeps lead deposits low or nonexistant, that is why it is there. I find just using a boresnake cleans the barrel up nice.

strobro32 07-04-2012 08:55 AM

Last month I ran 1400 rounds of CCI MM 40 gr RN through my 15-22 200 drum. It ran %100. There was not one single dud. I just had a dud after the first 200 rounds of CCI Tactical. For plinking the cheaper stuff is fine but I want the most consistent stuff for testing my drum.

I'm looking for a great deal on more MMs. Can anyone find a better deal than $330 shipped for 5000?

collectorden 07-04-2012 09:34 AM

Maybe not the cheapest, but Academy Sports and Outdoors has 1600 rnds of CCI MM 40gr for $99.99 in a plano poly ammo can.

I'm not sure I completely agree with this statement, but the leading issue with non-copper washed is far less than 20 years ago. I still prefer the washed/plated for anything over 1,100 fps.

ultra45 07-04-2012 11:01 AM

Just purchased 1600 rounds of MiniMags from Gander Mountain last weekend for $119. Includes the box. Individual boxes were in the $8-9 range. I figured my savings were just enough to justify the bulk purchase. I like CCI.

w0ady 07-04-2012 04:58 PM

just saw this deal and thought id help out:

Dont I feel stupid. LOL.

I have used MiniMags for 35+ years, but I can't stomach $5.5 for 100.

Short story long, I tried Federal Bulk Packs (550 rounds) from WalMart and was pleasantly surprised at the accuracy. consistency and cleanliness. When I first tried them they were $12 or $13 and I bought five bricks. When they went to $15 I bought 5 more. When they hit $17 I used a shopping cart and got 10. Last time I looked they were $19 or so.

I've shot them in several pistols and rifles and haven't found a misfire yet.

You will however get some. I will often times use Fed 550 in club matches where they let us rerun if we get a dud, but I won't use them in major events because you don't get a do-over. I only use CCI-Tactical or Win M-22 if I can't find any but CCI-MiniMags work good also. Sometimes you can go an entire box of Fed 550 with no issues then suddenly you will get 10-20 in one box. Mostly bad primer cord with gaps in it and they just happen to line up with your FP at the time. Out of the 20 maybe 5 will have no primer cord at all no matter how you align the bullet in the mag/chamber. I always take the duds or not firing ones to a shooting line after a match and test them out. This is the kind of data I am getting from them. I get similar results with Fed AutoMatch. This kind if stuff happens on the Fed production line because the people don't watch to see when the line of primer cord is close to running out so it can get replaced in time. Then any rounds that may not get any get thrown in with all the rest. CCI is known to take more care.
Heck if I could get a constant supply of CCI-MM at $5.50/100 I would take those all day. Best I could get was one of the 1600 round ammo cans late last year at $98, which is $6.10/100. Still better than the WM $6.94/100.

Primer cord???? There is no "primer cord" in .22s. The priming compound is a paste that is spun into the rim of the cartridge case. It is true that voids in the paste are possible, though.

TacoDaTugBoat 05-09-2013 03:46 PM

Can we just let this thread die? The prices that were outrageous 2 years ago would make me feel like I stole it today.

How can we know where we're going if we forget where we come from? I did get a bulk pack of 1600 CCI mini mag for 120 bucks today at academy :-)
