I've got a tactical Innovations Stratus.  I've been shooting Bulk Pack federal through it (copper washed) but it is still super sonic.  I was wondering if anyone shoots subsonic stuff through it?

Also, how often do you clean it, if at all?

What length barrel are you using?

Damn. Not what I wanted to hear.

Why?  I might be wrong about the length, I just looked at the pic on the website for comparison.  I already put it back in the safe.



Would the BBL of the upper make that much difference?

i have a tac 65 and i clean every 500 to 800 rounds..but i keep that puppy greased up with anti seize grease. edge of the baffles and threads...
from what i understand 3.5in is the magic number for high velocity rounds for keeping them sub sonic.
but im not 100% on that
i ussually use aguila subsonic 60 grains though mine. just make sure your checking for unstable rounds...they will key hole and could ding your end cap.
Rem sub 38 grains have yet to ever key hole...There are plenty more options than those two try them all not just the two i mentioned

The Remington subsonic I have is not copper jacketed.  Would shooting a lead round hurt it?

I don't think any .22 LR ammo is copper jacketed. Some may be copper "washed" but none are really jacketed.

Yeah, I've been shooting copper washed-not jacketed.  Just wondering if lead would hurt.

It was explained to me that both types will "lead up" the suppressor. I've not yet gotten my Stratus, though, to try it.



I was hoping you'd had better results with the Fed bulk pack, since I've got tons of it.
