I recently picked up a win model 67 22. I've been able to date it from may 1934 to dec 1937. Cleaned it up, it's in great shape. Now I'm wondering what to shoot in it. Do I go sub sonic or super sonic? Any one shoot one of these still?
Just go to your local shop and pick up your everyday box of .22's. It takes short, long, or long rifle. There's no special ammo required for your rifle. It's a good solid and safe gun. My first rifle was a Marlin Crown Prince single shot .22, which is similar and I still fool with it from time to time. Your rifle would be great for a kid as well. Enjoy it!

You can feed your everyday type of .22 lr through it. Id buy a lot of boxes 50 from different manufactures and see what feeds the best. Old rimfires can be finicky. My 1943 model 61 does well with Winchester White Box.
I wouldn't hesitate to shoot mini-mags in the gun. By the 30's rifles were shooting the same pressure ammo as today.
