I have almost always found this statement to be the case as well. Not this time.

Maybe try a box of the high velocity one time. Rimfires are fickle to start with, and yours may or may not like it. But I was nothing short of shocked by it. Especially in my 10-22, as well as a CZ455.

I only buy SK+. Seems to fit well for me. Rifle capability, shooter capability, and amount I'm willing to spend on ammo. Had less capable rifles and ammo taste at one time. Had more capable rifles and more accurate and consistent ammo at one time. Found I like it right here. About .10 per round. Might sound expensive to some, but all considered, i think it's a bargain.

Someone earlier stated not all .04/round ammo is equal, in 22LR. I will second that.
I have some I gathered before I realized what crappy, dud infested stuff it is. Same brand, different loading
what dud and inconsistent infested loading it became. But those were other times and conditions.
Other brands are good. Sometimes you read the reviews and just have to get your feet wet.

Personally, I by the medium 'blaster' grade stuff like Mini Mags for their consistency. Some brands
I still buy in bulk box but rotate it to the rear so I use the other, practice only, eject the misfire brands first.

No absolutes in rimfire.

I have a Mitchell SS clone of the High Standard. I did not test Ely, but did try CCI Green Box target and many common brands and types of ammo.

BEST accuracy was with Federal American Eagle High Velocity.

I think most will say that dud rounds are more prevalent in rimfire ammunition than centerfire...maybe it's a fact of how they're made. Rimfire ammunition produced during the great hoarding of several years ago seemed to have exhibited a much higher rate of dud rounds than before or since. Ammunition makers were rushing production so much in an effort to get product shipped I believe quality control suffered...either explicitly so or because of bringing on undertrained personnel and turning them loose on the production line before they were ready.

Ammunition boxes have production lot codes on them...too bad they're not date coded so one can see what era it was produced.

Great point!

I can remember an era when I actually liked Remington Thunderbolts. I started reading how people hated them, and wondered why. But all of mine were as old as 30 years old. Lots can change in 30 years. And in my primary hunting .22, nothing beat Remington Golden Bullet. So much so that I loaded up on the same lot number of Golden Bullets at Clyde's.

Absolutely agreed; that's why I used the qualifier "almost" in both sentences. There are no absolutes in rimfire.

When I find Mini-Mags around $.05 each, I pick some up. Not sure that price will be available anytime soon. In my 795, they are the most accurate and nothing else that I have tried comes close.

Absolutely!
I gave away a whole brick of Armscor back during the last shortage. Friend's son and daughter were happy it went bang in their little Chipmunks so someone was happy with it.
I shied away from Aquila, thinking "Mexican" would be the same as "Philippine", but I was very surprised with it.
"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.

I've been bummed out ever since the CMP ran out of .22 surplus for $125.00 per case of 5,000 rounds, including shipping. I should have bought more than I did.
