Dirty. It’ll usually go bang every time though. Not my #1 choice.

Last fifty rounds (actually 40 or so) came from a range customer, he couldn’t get it to fire in his P322. I gave him a recommendation and he bought some. He then asked me if I wanted what was left of the Armscor.

I thanked him and ran it through my G44, like Mikey in the cereal commercial of ancient times it’ll eat anything.

This week I just ran around 300 thru my 15-22 Performance Center. Anyone who has had a 15-22 PC knows they shoot supper accurate but are very finicky as to what they will run. Just to be clear I was using Armscor 22LR 40GR High Velocity Solid Point. I've got about 4K rounds thru my 15-22 PC and found it prefers 40GR Round or Solid Nose. It will not shoot HP reliably of any manufacturer. I also have lots of luck with CCI Mini_Mag Target. Again, its 40GR Round Nose. The only down side to the Armscor is that it is dirty. I mean yes, 22LR is a dirty round in general, but DAMN! They are also dirty to the touch, almost sticky.

I too bought a case of 5000 SV from Outdoor Limited. To date, I have shot it in S&W 17, 617, 41 and Colt Trooper with few problems. No dirtier than the various CCI or Federal products I shoot. I experienced an average of 5 FTF per 500 rounds, the majority of which fired when rotated and struck again.

One important note: the brass case is softer than brass in other 22 ammo I use and has been extremely reliable when shooting DA in my 17 and 617 and Colt Trooper. Deeper DA firing pin impressions on case than on CCI and Federal ammo. It has become my go to 22 ammo for DA revolver practice and have purchase more.
