Stronger .22 rounds?!
 
I didn't know they made these. Has anyone ever used them?

I've used all but the Aguila. I've never noticed any difference in performance over standard velocity or high velocity rounds.

If you're hunting, you may see improved terminal performance, but I really only plink with .22s.

those super max's look like a fun round to check out

There are several 22 lRs that are faster than standard- usually with a lighter bullet. I even have some spitzer (pointed) 22 LR, and 22 LR Wadcutter (real tack driver out to 50 ft) and some real heavy SLOW bullets.

HOWEVER_ thee is a problem- when you move to a HEAVY bullet, or a REAL fast bullet, the rate of twist of rifling may not be adequate to stabilize the super-duper- golly-gee-whiz ammo, Have shot some that would have a hell of a WOUNDING ABility, since rounds were going thru target sideways!

Well I just had a friend tell me about some bullets he has. He has some that shoot really slow, like 750fps or so. He said that they are used to be quieter when you don't want to be loud. That would be good when you wanted to keep the noise down around where you're shooting. I guess it could also be used to keep noise down when you don't want to scare off game if you're going for multiple kills in one hunt.

EDIT:

Oh yeah! My girlfriend's uncle told me that he was watching TV today, and he saw someone shoot a target on bull's eye from 250 yards away with a .22 pistol!

I was like O_O!

The low sound ammo you are referring to is CB caps. It has .22 short bullet with lower amount of powder with correspondingly lower energy/killing power. The above poster is correct in that the hyper velocity, or the very heavy bullet ammo usually don't shoot as accurate with standard rifling twist rate of 1-16" for .22 rimfire. I've shot rabbit and squirrels with .22s all my life so have a pretty good idea of what shoots best for small game hunting. In low velocity, low sound ammo, the .22LR subsonic, or target ammo velocity level works great-especially for squirrel. The most consistant HV ammo I've seen is cci mini mag LR. Shooting ANY .22LR at 250 yards is for the fun of it, just that-don't try shooting game that far away with .22LR regardless of what bullet you use as the remaining energy is extremely low at that range.

i seen the aguilla rounds that dont have any powder in the bullet just have the primer to fire the bullet, ok. now is 550 fps enough to kill rabbit and squirrel and to what distance?

A "buddy" was "telling me" that "he" uses these to clean the neighborhood of stray cats. Within 25 yards, it's a one shot kill. If not, there is absolutely zero recoil, so a follow up shot comes without any effort.
