Mine feeds Remington subsonic and Aguila SSS with no problem after I polished the feed ramp with a Dremel and some jewler's rouge. As you note, it is sometimes very picky about keeping a firm grip, both for proper function and accuracy.

That's a common misconception. A muzzle can won't affect velocity. If a bullet is supersonic coming out of your P22 without a can, it will be supersonic with the can. I think people say this (incorrectly) because the barrel of a gun with an integral can is usually ported, which reduces velocity relative to an unported barrel.

I have a p22 with a Gemtech outback suppresor. I use Remington Thunderbolt ammo. It produces no sonic crack and is VERY quite. I have not had any feeding problems with Remington supersonic or subsonic ammo.

I was told when I got mine that it only likes the hot stuff. I put a few 100 rds through it and then tried Rem SS, no problem. Accurate too.

Cool; I'm guessing that most standard velocity .22 ammo will be subsonic in the P22's short bbl.

Phil Dater at Gemtech said they run Rem ss through theirs, but the employees also run CCI standard through theirs with good results. I just need to find a good standard velocity HP since the CCI standard is RN.
