    Adequate plinking and short range hunting ammo.
    A bit dirty  but easily dealt with by more frequent bore/receiver cleaning.
    Can cause semi-autos to ftf due to blowback gsr buildup.

    Brett,

    So another words it's unreliable and could be a safety concern?

    You get what you pay for?

    About the equivalent of bulk ammunition. Adequate, not great.
    Since demand spiked 4 years ago, quality on all non-match rimfire ammo has dropped.
    Manufacturers can sell everything they make and quality control has slipped to meet market needs.
    Only the top grades have stayed consistent, but even those require lot testing to obtain best results.

    I spend quite a few mornings testing orders trying to find lots with consistent muzzle velocities.

    The rig is capable of sub-moa at 100 yards with a good lot of ammo
    Ideal for open field rabbit and squirrel control at the family farm.

    The 455 Varmint is a solid rig.
    The hard part is deciding which caliber to go with when purchasing.
    I've tried it with 17 hmr, 22 wmr and 22 lr barrels.
    With some minor tweaking, it's capable of surprising accuracy from a mass produced rimfire.
    If you're not careful, with aftermarket parts,
    you can end up spending about what it costs for a nice Annie MPR.

    My Varmint has one of the few remaining 455 single set triggers.
