Default .22 WMR Bullets

I just attended a gun show today and purchased a box of remington 40 grain psp. Does anyone have any experience with these bullets on game? I take my .22 WMR with me in the fall for squirrels and sometimes get the chance to take a turkey. In the past I have used the CCI Maxi-Mag 40 grain HP. I like the performance, but wanted to try something different.

they most likely are not as fast as the Maxi mags but I've had fairly decent results with them... I had to re-sight for them, hence the thoughts about the velocity difference... they should be good for anything you'll find in the small game catagory...

40gr. PSP should do fine. Might even be better for turkey, being a PSP instead of HP.
Be sure to check your sights as POI may be different.

I have had real bad luck with the Rem WMR's in my Ruger M77. I went through 2 boxes and had horrible groups. I switched to the Win Supreme (black box) I love these bullets, in fact my Ruger loves all of the Win line including the plain ol silver boxes. The black box supremes are a little more expensive but whats $2 when they shoot great

I shoot the remington 33gr. pills out of my Marlin 983 with a group that which you could cover with a soda top at a 100yds. Does an excellent job on squirrels

My 22mag is the Ruger 77/22 with lam. stock & stainless barrel/action. It likes the
Remington V-Max ammo the best - 1" groups or better.
It also does well with CCI 40gr. HP.
