I'm impressed with the ammo there.
I tested all three of the S&B .22LR offerings and they were universally poor for me.

S&B 7.62X39 is very good ammo as well, but S&B 5.56 is just so so

That s&b ammo worked really well in my zastava, BUT, the projectiles are very hard and don't seem to expand at all. I have lost some chest shots, that a 22lr would have put down. I have 150 of them left but have no confidence in them on game.

Do your own testing, but that's my experience.

The 30gr vmax gave me 25mm at 100 from the zastava and they seem to kill well.

I have my 22wmr for sale, (although I really love shooting it) as it costs the same to shoot as my 223 reloads and I don't have to worry so much about range.
