Has anyone ever heard of a 22 bullet that is "bolt action only"?
I've never heard of this and dont see why it wouldn't shoot from a auto unless its a pressure issue to cylcle.
Anyone know about this?

A while back I bought some armscor 223 bullets for reloading - they were the most inaccurate I had gotten in a long time- flyers everywhere... maybe I got a bad batch but I never tried them again.

About 8 years ago I was out shooting with a guy that I worked with. He was shooting 36 gr. Armscor high velocity hollow points out of his semi auto. It had a nasty case head separation that could have damaged his firearm, but did not. There was internet scuttlebutt at the time that this ammo may have been a little bit hot. The ammo looked like this stuff. I wonder if they reboxed it thinking that it was safe for bolt guns but not semi autos.

I'll be finding out before to long. I'll post up how it goes for the first bit.

If you can chrono some vs the regular HVel, that will help indicate if it is indeed hotter.
