I just got my new Ruger MK II Goverment Stainless pistol. I also bought some Aguila Super Colibri rounds. These things are great in the house . They go through one mid size phone book and stop in the first few pages of the second. Lots of fun, great for practicing trigger control.

Yeah same thing here they were a little load in the S&W 422 but I shot about 150 rds out of the 10/22 they are pretty fun but it likes too jam on the last round I think thats because I am cycling them by hand, i am just waiting for the skunks too show there faces around here!

It actually says not to use them in a rifle on the box due to jamming. Only works well in the shorter barrels.

Aguila advised against using Colibri in rifles not because of jamming, but because there's a real possibility of the bullet being lodged in the barrel because of insufficient propellant.

Thats what I'm saying. I consider a bullet lodged in the barrel. Thats what I thought thee12nv was talking about when he said jamming it up. I dont think they're jamming up in the action because the round isnt powerfull enough to cycle the action.

I use them also, but they are pretty loud for indoor practice in my Mark II. I use them primarily in my Romanian .22 training rifle. Damn, they are they quiet. More so than my air rifle. I never had one get stuck in the bore, but if I don't see or hear the bullet impact, all I need to do is remove the bolt and visually inspect the bore. Even if one did manage to get a bullet stuck in the bore and you tried to shoot a following Colibri round, I seriously doubt it would generate enough pressure to create a dangerous situation. Unless, of course, you decided to shoot a standard or high velocity round. Use common sense, and they are fine for (bolt) rifle use.
By the way, don't even think about using these for Squirrels. I hit one at 15 yds, and I saw the bullet bounce right of him. Gave the poor guy a tummy ache. [>(]

They make 2 different kinds of this stuff. One kind is made for rifles, but can be shot in pistols also. The other is made just for pistols. I wouldn't advise shooting the pistol kind in a rifle!!! This stuff is too cheap to try f'ing with. Just buy the rifle stuff, if you want to shoot it in a rifle.

Actually both the Colibri and Super Colibri have the warning against using it in rifles. What I was using is the Super Colibri.
