Remington Subsonic .22lr, isn't.

About one in ten goes super sonic out of my 16" barreled 10/22. CCI Standard Velocity seems to be the best, so far.

I have only had a couple out of a thousand go super sonic on me out of several thousand. I am torn between the sound of the Remington over CCI but for the price I shoot a lot more Remington.

I haven't had super sonic issues, but it seems like 3 out of a 50 count box don't go off. If you rotate a dud in the chamber sometimes it will go off with a second or 3rd primer strike, sometimes it doesn't matter they won't go off at all.

What do you guys think of Fiochi 22LR 38 gr subsonics?

Wolf Match Target has been a fantastic load through all my .22s except the Mosquito.

Quiet, accurate, just a little dirty.

The Remington Target load (100 round slide-top box, $5.97 @ WalMart) is almost as quiet, but not as accurate. Additionally, it will function 100% in my Mosquito, so far.

The fiocchi is great in my bolt gun and beretta .22 conversion. It turns my 6" spikes dedicated into a single shot. haven't tried it with a can yet though.

My ruger MKIII with Spectre does not like them and they are not that good of a round. Specs are 1050fps and the CCI standard is 1050fps and cheaper.

+1 on CCI .

Hint: expecting consistent results from bargain crap ammo (especially .22lr) isn't good SOP.

For pistols, just about anything works well. I like federal Bulk Pack (high velocity but still SS).
For rifles, CCI Standard and something Federal or Aguilla are going to be your better choices.

I generally avoid Remington ANYTHING in .22lr because it fouls too much.
God only knows what it's doing to the inside of my can.

Interesting. I have had plenty of trouble with Remington 22lr ammo. But not with the subsonic. I think I have had only a couple duds in a few thousand rounds, and it has never gone super sonic on me.

I won't buy Remington 22 LR any more, I have had more failures to fire with it than any other brand.

CCI standard vel. had no FTF in 400 rds. out of my suppressed S&W 422.. 5" bbl . Remington target had 3 FTF in 50 rds. same gun . AND they shot sparks out of the ejection port. And the duds would not fire if re hit. However... Remington Subsonic works very well in my suppressed P 22. Hope this helps, Otto.

Gotta say +1 for the Agulia Subsonic. Shoot them out of my 10\22 with a Specter and they are accurate and quiet. The only thing you hear is the action then the bullet impact.

^^^^^^

All I usually hear when using them is "click" followed by a "damn it" or "shit-fire"???

Makes for a pretty damn quiet gun, though right?




Only problem is the lackluster downrange performance.

I wonder what the BC is for a Browning Buckmark? I know the MV won't be very high - my arm isn't what it used to be.
