Pardon my ignorance, guys, but I haven't been around .22s for a long time and was wondering what the difference (if any) there is between a .22 short and a subsonic. And, second, will a 10/22 handle them without problems?

Thanks,

Subsonic is just any ammo with a muzzle velocity below 1000 FPS. IIRC.


Shorts are subsonic but they are much slower velocity and quiter.


I know shorts will not cycle the action on a 10/22, but you can work it by hand. Some subsonics do cycle fine.

Thanks for the clarification. So now I need to experiment with different subsonics to find what works? Or are there some guys here that have already been down that path and have some recommendations?

Well, I went searching and found a good start on pricing.

they make a short conversion for the 10/22.

the 40gr CCI subsonics function in my 10/22 and they work great.

Remmington subs have worked for me. I picked up a case for a good price from outdoormarksman.com

if you're really lookin for some accurate subsonic ammo, try Remington Target .22.
