Somewhere around 1980 I remember the CCI Stinger when it came out. The rich kids bought those and I plodded along with my Super X. Lots of squirrel hunting growing up. I had an opportunity to shoot some of the CCI and was totally impressed. Had to adjust the scope for those!! If you want that type of performance today, you’ll have to pay $15 or more per box for the likes of Eley or Lapua Midas (way more).
cheapest price for "bulk ammo" from Eley is 300 rounds for 50 bucks... the target stuff, the seconds and thirds from their plant will cost you at minimum 15 pennies a shot.in a 50 round box

There was a time when I never had misfires with CCI ammo. Lately the boxes of Mini-Mags I've been buying have had at least one dud every 200 rounds. Still better than other brands, but the myth of CCI rimfire ammo being impervious to misfires has been forever shattered in my mind. They haven't been the same since the early 2010s ammo scare and Federal purchasing the brand.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

EVERYONE changed the priming compound from the glass putty to a spray on stuff.

except eley. and that Mexican company that uses the "eley priming process"

I was completely unaware of that....
When was the widespread adoption?
Does it coincide with the global crappiness of 22 in general nowadays?
I know I sound like a third grader, but that tidbit sailed right over my head when it came out of the closet. Seems like there is a pretty easy way to get market share if anybody gave a crap!

Couple of relevant notes;

CCI now has SV target ammo sold in 50 round, lighter blue paper boxes marked with a red stripe with TARGET on it. It has the same last 4 digits (0035) as their other SV, 40 gr, target loads with a muzzle velocity of 1070 fps. However, this newer ammo has a lot more problems with failure to feed/eject in several semi-auto target pistols. Bullseye shooters avoid this ammo like the plague and CCI hasn't solved the problem yet.

The Aguila (made in Mexico) .22 LR cartridges are no longer "Eley primed". They are now using their own, newer priming compound - probably the spray on type. However, I've used thousands of Agula ammo in my target pistols with very few problems. Their SV "Super Extra" 40 gr. ammo is a bargain.

Because rimfire went to crap? Quite a bit more firepower!
Never went squirrel hunting with an AR.......probably not the best idea to launch that thing randomly in the trees with bullet travel up to 4.5 miles!

people have no issue with safety while shooting squirrels or crows in trees with something called the 17 hmr. THAT is dangerous.. and since they started making full metal jacket for it..... even worse

The go-to CCI SV made (perhaps) late 2018 and first half of 2019 (p/n 35) often seems to have very low velocity - too low to run slides on pistols that were happy with the non-red-banner CCI SV. However, at least some "J" prefix rounds seem to be OK. We may never learn what went wrong.
Acquila Pistol match competition seems to work well.
