CCI mini mags have worked well for me. As have Federal American Eagles. I haven't had much luck with my Model 60 with any Remington products.

A 3+" print at 80yds ain't bad for the 60,I'm loading my bolt Marlins with a diet of Federal hollow-points,same with the Grand-kids 60s.

Federal works great in my 60. It is a sqirrel head buster.

Actually my Model 60 has always shot best with the Remington gold bullets (about 1" or slightly more at 50 yards). Never had much luck with the Federals. However, you might also want to try the Winchester Power Points. They shoot great out of my CZ 452 (less than .5" at 50 yards), and that big hollow point really does a number on a squirrel's head (just don't body shoot them).

CCI Minimags will tighten it up, but cost a good deal more.
Most of my .22 rifles seem to like Winchester Xperts these days.
Federal Auto Match does pretty well too.
