Has anyone ever shot hypervelocity (1400fps+) ammo from their R22, such as any of the following:

Aguila, Super Max 1750 fps
CCI, Stinger 1640 fps
CCI, Quik-Shok 1550 fps
Federal, Hyper Velocity, 1550 fps
Remington, Viper 1410 fps
Remington, Yellow Jacket, 1500 fps

(generated this list from here: http://www.22ammo.com/hyper_v.html)

If so what were the results? Is the R22 even designed to handle this sort of ammo?

i have shot countless boxes of stinger and quick shock through my 10/22

no ill findings yet,

be careful if you have a aftermarket barrel some of the chambers are not designed for this ammo and you will run into feed and election problems and possiblu mess your chamber up

good luck i love the stinger ammo that much more sting headbang.gif

Phobos512 -

As soon as I get my new bolt from Rhineland I'll let ya know.

I do seem to recall though that I had less Failure to feeds with Stingers and yellowjackets than I did with the remmington sub sonics and the federal bulk packs.
