Federal ammo useful?

Post by ter »

Grice has Federal 711B and 719 for 379.00 a case. I think 719 is too fast myself, and I think I read it is the same as automatch.
Either worth it, and is one better?

It's like any other rimfire ammo.... if your rifle likes it, buy the hell out of it.... if it doesn't....

711B for our purposes. CCI Standard Velocity shoots better in every one of my rimfires.

If your rifle likes it, it'll do ok, but if your rifle doesn't like it , you got 4550 rounds to pawn off on to somebody.

The 719 is high velocity so to fast for SB but I shot my way to master class with it years ago in SB Lever. Haven’t had any luck with the 711B in any Rifle.

For SB it's too fast but my Henry LAR loves it. My 10/22 does too and it makes for good woodchuck ammo.
