    I shoot this ammo in my back yard out of a Marlin 39a lever action. It is 29 grain lead nose .22 long. This stuff is more quiet than my pellet rifle, and I'm not kidding. Good accuracy out to about 30 yards. I love this little round! It is so Quiet I can't believe it.

    The CB and BB cartridges are both VERY quiet from a rifle- and at close range, can be surprisingly accurate. The quietest round I have found yet is the Aguilla brand Colibri- think those are 20 grain- and they are so quiet you hear the firing pin hit the case.

    Do not recall seeing Winchester CB Longs- usually shoot the CCI CB Long. I have a couple of Remington 550-1 rifles that will cycle semi-auto with them.

    Be carefull!!!

    Quiet, or not the discharge of a CB is still against the law in most city limits. If so stick to your pellet rifle.:eek::):D

    I don't live in any city limits. It's rural country here and we shoot in the yard all year round. I should have stated that my back yard is 10 acres. I just like the quietness of the cb .22 round.

    Lucky you.!!

    Great to have your own backyard range! With that 39A you can load up just over 1/2 a box (26 I believe) of the shorts, and go to town. The Marlin 39A is as close to the "Perfect" .22 rifle, that you will find. I bought my first "Marlin Golden 39A" in "68", at the ripe old age of 14. Actually my Dad had to sign for the Marlin-due to the first year of the Gun Control Act of 1968.:p:eek::D

    Rob,

    I know this is an old thread,, but when I found out about this round,, I googled and found this thread for Review's.

    Seems like everybody and his brother know about he CCI CB,, but hardly nobody know's about the Winchester 22 Long CB Match.

    Man this Stuff Blows the CCI CB away. Out of the Starting Gate the CCI CB @ 710fps and Remington CBEE @ 740fps never have a chance. The Winchester leaves um in the Dust, gets to the Target Faster and closer to the Bulls Eye.

    C3,

    54058 - Ammo .22 Long Winchester Super-X Lead Round Nose 29 Grain 770 fps 50 Round Box

    I don't even consider the Colibri or Super Colibri,, as they are only supposed to be shot out of a 16" or shorter barrel.

    The CCI CB Longs are very inconsistant in Powder Charge. I've had several to just Dribble out the 24" Marlin 39a Barrel. The Remington CBEE's were my choice for this gun,, but they didn't cycle too good,, cause the Sawed Off Hollow Point Bullet tends to snag,, and the Powder is JunkYard Dirty.

    In the CB ammo,, The Winchester CB Match,, as far as I'm concerned is Leading the Pack.

    Billy,

    My 39A holds 21 of the Winchester 22 Long CB match.

    Move over CCI CB and Remington CBEE ~ Winchester just Walked in the Door,

    Joe:)
