Just wanted to know if anyone has a favorive .22LR cartridge that leaves less residue in the firearm or smokes less.  I usually use the Federal bulk ammo (blue box) but it still seems dirty to me.

CCI is one of the cleanest burning.

Those things actually leave a total mess inside my suppressor.  They crap out some kind of granular dust residue, almost like sand, that get in the 'can.  If I shoot a 50box and then tap the suppressor on the table I get a good "half-sugar cube" sized volume of "black sand" that comes out.

ETA: I would have to say that CCI is the cleanest burning, in my experience.
