I know these rounds wont cycle the rifle, but will it fire these low powder or other powderless (SUPER Colibri) quiet rounds? any problem with extraction/ejection?

I am mostly worried about the powderless rounds not clearing the barrel. Ive heard reports of them getting stuck.

Any idea what the quietest round is that will actually cycle?

CBs are much faster than Super Colibris, I've never had a CB (they have powder, just not much) fail to clear the bbl. As far as cycling the action, even subsonics won't work more than 70% or so in my 10/22.

if you firet the super colibris, with a bbl under 22 inches, it should clear the bbl, and probably eject, but not sure on that last one...

Won't eject.

I shoot super colibri's out of my Remington Scoremaster. It has a 26" barrel and I've never had any get stuck out of about 300 so far.

...needless to say it makes absolutely no noise.

I shoot the super colibri in my 10/22 all the time, not a problem. To keep the sound level down, just wrap your left hand around the bolt handle and rifle, and using your left thumb push forward on the bolt handle at the same time.
