What is the most quiet bullet for a .22 that is still lethal to a small animal like a squirrel or rabbit

Axxe55 04-30-2012 04:13 PM

a 22 rifle that can shoot a 22 short is pretty quiet. probably going to be a bolt action to be able to use a 22 short though. just make sure it can shoot them, cause not all can.

The CCI CB Long and the CCI Quiet are both REAL quiet, and will kill a squirrel at 25 yards or so. The Aguilla Colibri is also extremely quiet, but has less OOMPH! than the CCI stuff. They will ALL have a different point of impact from regular 22LR ammo.

The CCI will cycle through MOST bolt actions, lever actions and pumps. The only semi I have ever had that DOES cycle the CCI CB longs semi-auto is a Remington 550-1. I have a few of them- they have a floating chamber, and you can mix shorts and LRs in the magazine.

FWIW, Remington has a CB in a true long rifle (CBee22) which works well in rifles like my Mossberg 40 which fusses when fed standard CB longs.

The CCI .22 CB long is a 29 grain bullet at 750 fps. The new CCI .22 Quiet is a CB long with a 40 grain bullet at 750 fps and feeds in any .22 long rifle firearm. It may or may not function in a semi auto but it will feed. Its very quiet in a rifle and kills jackrabbits around the hay stack dead.

The doves know of the Aguila Super Colibri & the neighbors don't.
