Default .22 speed??

Correct me if I'm wrong,but it seems I read somewhere that a .22LR developes max velocity in a 20" barrel. Longer than that actually slows bullet speed. Any takers on this info??

Yes I have used the Aguila, Super Max, .22 LR ammo and it did not group well in my Savage MKII bolt action, but it shoots great in my son's Ruger 22LR Auto-loading pistol.

Billbob- a .22LR actually gets its max velocity in the first TWELVE inches of bbl- over that, it starts slowing down a smidge. The longer barrel gives a longer aiming radius, and in some cases, better barrel harmonics.

But FASTEST is frequently not the most accurate. Have just this week been shooting some German Match ammo that is barely supersonic- and am getting 5 rd, 50 meter groups that you can cover with an aspirin tablet- no lie! (On the other hand, the price of the stuff will remind you of shortest verse in Bible- "Jesus wept." )

Those prices are insane! I'm sorry if you pay that much for ammo. My local gun shop sells the bricks of 550 Remington Golden Bullet HP 40gr for $18, and that site lists it for $31! Ouch!

Mine shoot good out to 100 yards. I was getting 1.5" groups with no keyholing. out of them might be my longer than normal barrel.

I've been playing with some of those. Kinda fun and cheap, no noise, like a pellet gun. They would kill something at close range (like back yard range) if you hit them in the right spot. I'm using these AMM-066 - Ammo .22 SUPER Colibri 500 Rounds 20 Grain No Powder for .22 Handgun Super Quiet

Says for pistols only but they seem to do fine in my rifle.

Aguila also claims to have the fastest .22 LR round available

The CB caps are perfect for spider control from the tractor seat through a Ruger Single Six. I figured out how to turn the drudgery of shredding the pasture into a shooting sport.
The neighbors would look at me funny because I would drive the tractor with two pistols on. The Ruger and a S&W M-65 3" loaded with home brew shot shells for the field rats. Barn kittens learn quickly that rodents are food, not toys.
