"Super Extra" is a brand recognition handle, much like Golden Bullet, Thunderer, and Lightening. Aguila even puts it on their 22 Short.
Golden Bullets used to be my plinking choice and CCI Minimags my favorite hunting and finicky autoloader round. Aguila is always available, usually less expensive, and works just fine in everything. I'm just plinking though, not a candidate for Eley super duper ultra green target supremo laser stuff.
If anyone else has a brick of Armscor to give away my butt ugly rust pitted barrel Gunbroker refugee 597 is always ready to blow the X off of some targets for me

Just bought a brick of ARMSCOR today. Ran 100 rounds though my Ruger Mk IV with out a hiccup. I was hesitant in buying it though.

I was the same way- current crisis had me concerned I didnít have enough, and a lot of my older ammo was in a footlocker in my gun room under stuff I rarely moved. This week I cleared off the footlocker and cracked it open, and after some accounting realized I had WAY more than I thought. Iím good now.
