I've always liked those cz lux . I've fooled a lot with cb long but I don't have any .22 lr rifles with a trigger as nice as my r1. I'm guessing the lux has a nice trigger. Can it shoot cb long in 1 ragged hole?
Good question. I can't remember from my testing. I *think* they grouped surprisingly well, although the point of impact was different compared to regular 22 LR ammo. But I am fairly sure they did not group as well as regular 22 LR ammo out of the same gun.

Hint: Long barrels tend to be quieter with the same ammo than short(er) barrels
From the shooters position. I believe there is little difference once minimum rifle length is met from down range. A pistol may actually be quieter as the sound is not as sharp. I am comparing the sound of centerfires not rimfires though and not equal calibers(rifle v. pistol cartridges). I don't have any experience being downrange of rimfires.
I don't have any hard evidence, just some extrapolated generalizations from limited experience.

I want a new 22 and if helps with the critters that is even all the better
22 shorts can be fired in most rifles. They are fairly quiet, and are enough for Racoons and such.

There's no way I will shoot a .22 pistol or revolver without hearing protection. With a 24 inch barrel rifle, I often don't bother, especially shooting standard or sub sonic ammo.
The .22 rimfire is essentially a pistol round and the powder charge is consumed completely in a short barrel pistol. In a rifle, the powder charge is still completely consumed in the first inch or so of bullet travel down the bore, residual pressure continues to accelerate the bullet until about the 14 inch point. From there on, the bullet is essentially coasting, the pressure behind it dropping fast as the gasses expand and cool. By the time the bullet reaches the end of the 24 inch barrel, there is little pressure left. The signature "whipcrack" sound of a high velocity LR is actually more the bullet breaking the speed of sound as it travels through the air than it is gun report.

Air rifles will also make that whipcrack noise if they are supersonic.

I used to take bottle nipples and put over the barrel of my Winchester. I used LR and would do it out my bedroom window popping Robins in my back yard. Next door was an old lady that used to complain to my mom about my music. Not a peep about the birds until she saw me picking one up. She accused me of killing it with my slingshot hah!
She never heard the spit from the Winchester.
