I've purchased bulk boxes of 22s in the past, but the bucket containing 1400 seem like an open invitation for duds. It comes to about $2.60/50 so it's not a great deal...but it's not a bad deal either. It's Remington so it's not my favorite brand, but for plinking I'll shoot anything. Anybody have any experience with Remington 22s in the rat bait bucket?

I bought a bucket a few years back, but I don't think I've shot any of them yet

To be honest, I have never bought any of the bucket of bullets. The reason I have not is too many negative posts of them being "substandard" as in too many failure to fire (duds). The posts of the negative reviews of those bucket of bullets may just very well be BS but, I was not willing to take the chance on them since the money for them would be coming out of my pocket. They may be okay/decent ammo but I was and am not willing to take the chance on them. YMMV!

I used to buy these buckets in a "4-pack" from my supplier to sell individually.

And out of all the buckets I've sold I've never heard a single complaint.

And SM said above, there are some folks saying they have had some duds with these "bucker'o'bullets"...

So if it was me - and it was going to buy some 22 shells - I'd probably give one bucket a try and see for myself. (-:

And George - this is a good place to compare your price - And look for cheap ammo in almost all calibers:

I've never bought a bucket, but if the price is right, I would. I used to shoot Remington .22lr a lot, buying it in their 500rd bricks. Never had a problem with it then.

Nope...

That fella with the 50th Anniversary SS Ruger 10/22 must have changed his mind.
Then again - I didn't ask him about it again either.

I've looked at the old one my Dad gave me...
I think if I give it a good cleaning it might work better - It is really dirty.

I like to shoot my other guns a lot more...
But everyone should own a .22 of some kind, Shouldn't they?? (-:

At those prices and its not for a centerfire that I depend upon for protection, IMHO a few duds are acceptable. There were a number of duds in those boxes my grandfather gave me back in the 1960's that were from the 1920's. I still had a huge grin on my face when I came back from the cow pond shooting turtles.

Just got a flyer from Academy, they have the Marlin 60 for $149 and you just can't beat having one of them for a .22 at that price.

You can get the elby match ammo .22 for 20 bucks a box of 50. I would be pissed at any misfires in rimfire ammo that expensive.

A bucket of .22 that equals out to 2.50 a box of 50? I would not fuss too much about a few duds... that's the nature of the beast when it comes to rim fire ammo.
