    I recently bought a sr22, and absolutely love the little gun. So far i have only fed it cci ammo. Is there any ammo (grain or mfg) that i should not use? I believe that the Aguila powderless ammo is ng in a semi auto like this, since it only uses the primer cap to fire. Other than that anything else that i should stay away from?

    Thanks

    When I had mine, nothing would go through it without jamming up. Tried for a year with that piece of junk and finally got rid of it.

    My wife uses Cci mini mags, Federal bulk and blazer bulk with zero problems the only ammo we've had any problem with was Remington thunder bolt. FTF's but not many.

    I would be careful with subsonic ammo. I shoot Ely HP subsonic with no issue but the bullets are wax covered for better feed and they top just over 1,000 FPS. Slower and cheaper may cause FTF problems.
