Dick's has Federal Auto Match .22LR $24.99 BOGO 1/2 off. Total for two boxes is $37.48 before tax or $0.058 a round. This was in store. These are 325 round boxes. The limit was either 4 or 5 boxes.

This can potentially be slicker if you have made a recent Dick's purchase, there is a $10 off $50 coupon on the receipts for completing a survey. You will need to purchase 4 boxes.

What calibers do they carry? Not familiar with the Auto Match line.

.22 only. It's pretty good stuff. Kind of a mid-grade target ammo. ~1,200 fps and cycles most auto-loaders reliably.

Thanks, I recall seeing it around now. 325 round boxes, right? Not a bad price, assuming it's better quality ammo than the 500+ round boxes of .22s.

Yes. Usually see the 325 boxes. It's a step up in accuracy from the cheap stuff. Shoots well out of most of my guns. Buckmark, 10/22, Browning takedown, etc. Not as good as the better Federal Champion UltraMatch/922, Eley, other real match grade ammo. But then I'm not usualy feeding the expensive stuff to any gun that I'm shooting this out of anyway.

I prefer jacketed ammo (remington golden bullets) to lead nosed because I assume they foul less. Is my thought correct or does it really not matter if shooting large volumes in a single session?

That's what the rep in the Dick's gun section told me about the lead nose. I think it goes either way; don't the jacketed bullets cause build up of copper of whatever the material used to cover the bullet? Isn't that what products like Hoppe's Copper Solvent is for, to clean the copper build up from the barrel?

I don't know, most of the match grade ammo is lead nose. I grabbed two boxes to try it out. The Dick's I went to had quite a bit of .22LR. Mostly Remington Thunderbolt and Golden Bullet and the Federal Auto Match.

I've got a half-dozen rim-fire handguns and run AutoMatch through them regularly as well as similar rounds such as Fed Champion and Blazer. I've never noticed a significant amount of fouling in any of my pistols with the exception of the new Victory SW22. Even then, a regular cleaning(between 200-400 rnds) keeps everything smooth running!

You will likely find the cheaper 22lr ammo to be smokier and tends to give off more particulates; but finding it and paying less for it is pretty slick. Actually, it's possible to find MiniMags for $7.99/sleeve if you don't mind spending a touch more to stay cleaner!

Well done! My Entertainment Book coupon excludes ammo, so I'm likely going to pass on this one. The extra 20% off makes it SLICK !

Just picked up 4 boxes for $80.96 out the door. With the 5% cash back bonus on my debit card, it'll come out to just under 6 cents a round.

I don't think you can use the $10 off $50 coupon for ammo, can you?

The local Walmart is selling bricks of Thunderbolt for $25. It's not the best .22 but it's good enough for the range.
