Just upgraded my 10/22 with a Whistle Pig aluminum barrel. Is there any high velocity ammunition I should avoid?

Any Whistle Pig owners out there?

I have used a variety of ammo in my WP barrel and love it. Never had any issues with any I've tried.

I have federal blue box ammo right now just because I'm halfway through the brick, and no issues whatsoever. Shoots thumbnail-sized groups at 50 yards all day long.

Thanks for the info. I have several hundred rounds from an earlier Federal bulk buy. The only info on Whistle Pig's website was not to use 'hypervelocity' ammo. Other than printing it on the box, what makes 'hypervelocity' hyper? Is there a threshold for muzzle velocity to be considered hyper?

I emailed Whistle Pig but they would not commit to an answer...must be an legal thing.
