I use HV in my Moms .22 Revolver. It shoots just fine.... Maybe He was thinking of Ratshot, Becuz Ive been told thats not good for Rifles or Handguns.

Some of the old High Standards---model A, B and a few others, as
well as OLD Colt auto's and some old revolvers were not made for high velocity 22. Heck--they were made before there WAS high velocity 22!
Anything post WWII that was a well made gun when it was new will handle
high velocity 22's without a problem. Even the ones that were pretty much
junk when new will handle it OK--for a while.

^^^ yerp.

Although, the difference between Standard velo & High velo isn't much.

Remington Target Standard Velo--1150fps at the muzzle.

Federal Lightning High Velo-- 1240fps at the muzzle.

I have an S&W .22A semi-auto. I've been pushing aguila super max hyper velocity through it with no problems at all. The ammo is rated at 1750 fps. It's accurateand will group like there's no tomorrow.
