    What is the most quiet bullet for a .22 that is still lethal to a small animal like a squirrel or rabbit

    a 22 rifle that can shoot a 22 short is pretty quiet. probably going to be a bolt action to be able to use a 22 short though. just make sure it can shoot them, cause not all can.

    The CCI CB Long and the CCI Quiet are both REAL quiet, and will kill a squirrel at 25 yards or so. The Aguilla Colibri is also extremely quiet, but has less OOMPH! than the CCI stuff. They will ALL have a different point of impact from regular 22LR ammo.

    The CCI will cycle through MOST bolt actions, lever actions and pumps. The only semi I have ever had that DOES cycle the CCI CB longs semi-auto is a Remington 550-1. I have a few of them- they have a floating chamber, and you can mix shorts and LRs in the magazine.

    FWIW, Remington has a CB in a true long rifle (CBee22) which works well in rifles like my Mossberg 40 which fusses when fed standard CB longs.

    The CCI .22 CB long is a 29 grain bullet at 750 fps. The new CCI .22 Quiet is a CB long with a 40 grain bullet at 750 fps and feeds in any .22 long rifle firearm. It may or may not function in a semi auto but it will feed. Its very quiet in a rifle and kills jackrabbits around the hay stack dead.

    The doves know of the Aguila Super Colibri & the neighbors don't.

    When firing CB/Shorts out of a long rifle box-style magazine rifle...chances are you'll want feed 'em one at a time into the open chamber...
    Easy way is to get an 915Y one-shot adaptor...if you use them a lot.
    Otherwise you can mod a spare steel mag or two for CB's/Shorts if you have a High Standard Magazine Tool & micrometer...

    Tube mags will feed the CB/short/long/LR...like in the 781/881/981/XT22T's

    The new 40 grain quiet CCI ammo would be just right,or..you could just load one cb short in the pipe for ultra quiet(assuming you need just one shot)and be backed up with a full mag of something else in the gun.

    Between the CB Long & the QUIET, which might be more accurate?

    Which is more accurate!!! The one your rfle likes best but don't expect ether to shoot as well as target match ammos out there. I have several rifles that will shoot better ammo well under 1/4" at 25 yards the cb's and cci quite is closer to 3/4". I have used cb's in years gone buy to hunt with and will use the new cci quiet today as the 40gr bullet simple works better at longer range. For years I used match grade ammo for hunting out of a long barrel rifle. It does seem is would be illegal to use .22's on doves but thats your problem to know your local laws. And remember the 40gr bullets will carry down range way farther than a cb. Don't hit any house's or cars or people with a miss. That is the reason behind useing bird shot and a 410 works well.

    Well I picked up some Winchester CB-Match, it's a little more accurate than the Super Colibri & with a little more authority. It's a tad louder than the SC's but it still sounds like a BB gun. I'm not sure if I'll stick with it over something else though. I'll order some CCI QUIET & give it a go.

    The full power round that I have found to be very quiet is the RWS Subsonic HP. My CZ 452 particularly likes it, and in its 25” barrel it is amazingly quite. I have shot it in my bullet trap in the basement, without earplugs, and the loudest noise was the mechanical noise of the impact of the firing pin. The CZ also shoots the stuff into just over an inch at 100 yds.

    I've shot CCI 22s HP in my Rem 552 and the action of the gun cycling is louder than the bullet.

    Most 22lr get their max velocity in a 16"-18" barrel. You actually begin to lose velocity in longer barrels but they are quieter.
