Getting the right .22 LR ammunition for your semi-automatic pistol or rifle may take some effort. .22 semi-autos are notoriously known for jamming. Each gun is usually very particular about what .22 LR ammunition it likes best. Getting ammo that won’t jam one-to-two times per magazine is important, especially if you are shooting in a competition. Junior Shooters magazine’s 3-Gun shooting team trains a lot using .22 LR ARs and .22LR pistols. This saves money and still provides excellent training.

ATK, with its CCI, Federal, and American Eagle brands, have some of the best .22 LR ammo available that should work in your .22 and minimize jams. Many manufacturers recommend using CCI Mini-Mags. We have found these to work well; but have also had exceptional results with Federal Value Pack .22 LR. and the new CCI Tactical .22 LR ammo.
