Thunderbolts are stamped with 'Rem' on the head. I just checked the case in question and it was some sort of Federal ammunition. Has an 'F' on the head.
I do have Thunderbolts in my ammo inventory though.


If it has an "F", it's a Federal Ammunition round. They are not much better than Thunderbolts.

One of the problems with the rise in demand for 22 ammo is that they are pumping-out cheap ammo that you cannot trust.

I've always had good results with Stinger 22's.

Always gotta rack the slide a few times, make sure that suckers clear...

The dummy with the 13 gage that loads the bird shot and forgets about it probably should have been looking down the barrel. Even before he loaded it I kept cringing cause he kept putting his finger on the trigger.

People with an iq less than 110 should not be allowed firearms imho.

I've had a few pistols for a few years now and could not imagine making such a stupid mistake.

I have never had a problem with any CCI ammo either. I have several boxes of Stingers.

Most of my issues with rimfire ammo has been failure to fire.

PMC was the worst ever in my experience.

CCI did have a problem a while back of over-lubricating the outside of the rounds, causing stovepipes. So much so that you would have to clean the firearms after a couple boxes, but they took care of that.

I notice he said it was a 12 gauge but he loaded a yellow shell. Yellow has traditionally been 20 gauge.

Not true any more or is this man mistaken about what he has.

I think this was more a case of not unloading the gun before attempting to clean it.


I do not typically pull the trigger when I clean a gun too, so WTH...hehe

RIP Mr. Herrera...

Sad to here that he had a wife and a teenage daughter.

If anyone needs to teach someone about gun cleaning, just email them a link to the video below:

I think all this delicious irony is making me put on weight! *__-

I've never really understood how people manage to do this. The first step in cleaning a firearm is to always double check to ensure that you've unloaded it before doing anything else.
