Default CCI Stinger a no-no for 10/22

The owner's manual warns against using CCI Stinger .22LR ammo in the 10/22 because the case is a little longer and could cause a jam or more serious damage.

Anyone know if the CCI Velocitor has the same case length? I've read a lot about that round and everyone seems to love it.

If not, anyone have a favorite .22LR round for varmints and/or plinking?

I'm a big fan of Remingtons. I usually stick to the Vipers or the Yellowjackets with the 10/22. I've never heard anything about not being able to put the CCIs through it though. Then again, I've never tried.

I mostly use different types of Federal ammunition and have good results.

Well, look at your manual before you do, because I was surprised to see that with the Ruger...glad I checked!

I've used them in my remmy 597 and my buckmark. I don't see why a 10/22 would be different. The CCI is about 1/8" longer from the looks it.

Actually, it says in the manual that it's because of the longer casing.....?

Send me a 10/22 and I'll do it.

CCI = 1640 fps and makes a nice flash and pop!
