Question about ammo. What are all the types of ammo you can run through a smith Wesson mp15-22? I know .22LR but there are so many different variants. I know from the manual to NOT use Remington ammo and any subsonic ammo. Also, can I use .17HMR???? I never heard of it but seen them at wal mart and wanted to buy them but didn't think I could use them.

That's a negative on the 17 HMR in you're .22LR. I like to run CCI mini-mags through my 10/22 but it's picky on bulk ammo so I just end up buying that in bulk since my LGS sells it by the thousands in a plastic ammo can and I like the ammo can ;)

.17 HMR ? No. Will not chamber, if it did would be dangerous and inaccurate. It is basically a .22 Magnum (which is larger than a .22LR in diameter) but necked to a .17 bullet. Also a LOT longer. There have been issues with semi auto .17 HMRs, leading to a big recall from Remington. Also not .17 M2, nor .17 Aguila.

There are dozens- Nay- HUNDREDS of different .22 LR rounds available, ranging from subsonic SHHHHH quiet to hypervel, to REALLY pricey match ammo. For ordinary ammo, CCI makes some of the most consistent ammo I have seen. If I am doing 100 meter serious target work with a bull barreled bolt gun, then I am burning Wolf, Lapua, or Nobel Match ammo (a a price that will make you weep)

Thank you. How about Winchester varmint rounds.

If you are using a firearm marked .22LR, then any .22 LR ammo. However, different guns like different ammo- ESPECIALLY in the fickle .22 arena. Buy a box, give them a try. As I said, CCI has some of the best of the non-match ammo.

Another vote for CCI. My 22 semi auto eats them up

.22 ammo
 
You will get more accuracy out of standard velocity/subsonic ammo and they are quieter. Like others have NO to 17 HMR.:)CLIFF
