Review 1 for Federal Lightning 22LR 40 Grain Solid Ammunition

Recommend for full auto machine gun

I have an American 180 semi or full auto fire machine gun. It is rated at 1450 rounds per minute and operates with a round drum on top of the gun like the old Lewis MG's. It takes me about 5 minutes to load the big 500 round drum with this ammo but only 11 seconds to dump it. This ammo has never had an FTF or FTE on me. It is not a dirty ammo like the white box Winchester is and about the same price as the Federal Red box 550 rounds but slower and not as much pressure to cycle some of my semi auto handguns, but for revolvers, bolt action and well made semi auto rifles not carbines this is fine. You using a short barrel gun the pressures do not build up enough to cycle all the time then go to the red box stuff but stick with Federal.

Review 2 for Federal Lightning 22LR 40 Grain Solid Ammunition

Great groups with old Colt Woodsman

The grouping I get with this ammo when shot in my 1966 Colt Woodsman is much tighter than Winchester SuperX FMJ, Federal Premium Gold, CCI Standard Velocity, or Wolf (made in Germany), all of which cost many times more than the Lightning. Barrel was reasonably clean, too. This is a great deal at $1.97 per 50 (at my Walmart in SC).

DO NOT BUY FOR BLOWBACK!!!

This is very inexpensive ammo but be aware that it is not good for blowback actions. Used in 2 pistols and one rifle (Walther p22, s&w 22a and Keltec Su-22) It worked for 4 mags on the Su-22 before any trouble, 2nd mag on Walther and 1st on S&W. The P22 and Su-22 were brand new and unfired, 22a was cleaned before range. Only one misfire, but EVERY round jammed once it started. These rounds dont not have the umph to push the operations back far enough to cycle correctly.
1255 Muzzle velocity Winchester rounds jammed less, but still way too often.
Remington golden bullet 1280 functioned flawlessly.
please note that the reviewed ammo was FIRST used before trying other ammo.

Would like to know what firearms you used these rounds in. It would help people make better buying decisions and not waste money like I did on these rounds.

Review 5 for Federal Lightning 22LR 40 Grain Solid Ammunition

Cheapest Reliable Brass 100-pack you'll find

I've shot remington umb, tula, blazer, winchester, and federal through my xdm and have decided that although this isn't the cheapest of the bunch per 100 (tula steel is cheapest), it's hands down the best brass load I've shot for the money. Every walmart I stop at, I go to the sporting goods section and buy every Federal value pack they have if they even have them. Pre-tax, you're looking at a pretty good deal compared to buying online in bulk for remanufactured rounds. Provides great accuracy and reliability with zero misfires through roughly 1,700 rounds shot so far.
