I've been shooting these for a while in my 10/22 and AR conversion. For rifles you want to stick with the Super Colibri(red box) not the .22 Colibri(yellow). Though Aguila doesn't recommend either in a rifle, I find that if you keep the barrel clean you can avoid stuck bullets (just watch for each impact to be sure). For some reason these rounds seem to make the chamber dirty quickly running and bore snake down the barrel every 25 rounds or so becomes a neccessity reguardless.
They are a lot of fun and can take small game at close range, but I use them mostly for plinking in the basement. They don't cycle the action in semi autos, but you just have to work the action manually. They would be perfect in a pump action 22.

I make sure and keep tabs on them, that they've exited the barrel. I was pretty surprised, they will go striaght through a tin can, a real tin can, not just an aluminum soda can.
