What make/manufacture have you found to be the quietest .22lr ammunition?



Thanks,

Mike

The regular Colibri is quieter than the Super Colibri, it's a tradeoff as you can have a little more power with a little more noise with the Super Colibri.

No...with Super Colibri it's a little more power and noise than regular Colibri.

Super Colibri will probably be ok in a rifle however I would not shoot regular colibri in a rifle as it may not even make it out of the barrel.

Actually I had some SUPER Colibri get stuck in a really dirty .22 barrel...

I've never had any problems with the Colibri's in my 10/22 (usually kept clean). Of course they won't cycle the action, but I can shoot them in my backyard with the noise signature of a pellet gun. I like 'em.

CCI "CB Long"s work pretty good at short distances on feral cats, darned quiet too.
