awsome, i was curious because i remember back in the day with my pellet guns that only the ones with a 600+ fps rating would actually kill in one shot hits, others would take 2-3 shots to terminate the rabbit. and that is why i switched to rimfires

Default The Best 22 Cartriges

For subsonic rounds I would recommend Aguilas Sniper Subsonic rounds. the go for about $6.99 a box and they are fantastic to shoot.

Default Lo power .22

Be careful with the low power .22's- the one's with just priming compound can stick in rifle barrels!! The warning on the box says to use in handguns only. Just thought I'd add that,I didn't see it stated previously. Thanks for letting this Nubie to your boards!!

It's a good practice to always be on the lookout for "pop and no kick".

The Agulia Colibre or Super Colibre loads work great but if using a long rifle make sure they leave the barrell. They are primer only and very quit, but very low velocity. great for vermin in an urban enviroment.

For vermin in an urban environment, I usually use 12 g buckshot loads, and keep the .22s for rats.

The Remington Yellow jacket and the cci stinger have been around for years. I used to use yellow jackets in my Remington 511x. It has a 27" barrel so I get even more velocity. They hit hard but the accuracy was not as good as std velocity rounds.

personally dont like the sss's, there too heavy and tumble too much too soon. also in auto's the small case is a pain in the arse

Any real target .22LR ammo is subsonic. That's exactly what I use for squirrel hunting-target ammo. Not only less sound, but also enhanced accuracy.

The trans-sonic problem is even more prevalent with the lighter bullets isn't it?
