Not just what functions best in you favorite gun, but you overall favorite.

1. CCI MINI-MAG decimates squirrels and other vermin. :D

2. CB Longs decimates neighborhood cats quietly!! :eek:

Remington Golden bullet, 9 bucks for 550. The best compromise between price and reliability.

OK, where do I get Kevlar with ceramic inserts in cat sizes? With all that humor about pet killing I am worried about my furries.

I only "Take Care" of strays and nuisances. I understand people let there cats out at night, but when they do $700 damage to the paint job on my wife's brand new car, Kitty goes bye-bye ;)

Lets see... I've got a couple favorites

.22 Sub-Sonics for quite dispatching of small critters that make it past/around my Rotty.

.22 LR Stingers for general shoot em ups.

.22 LR QS for hunting

My favorite is the Winchester "Power Point" . It is the most accurate across the board in all my guns . Good luck , Mike...

Cheap and accurate, nothing trick about them such as hollow point or hypervelocity, lead instead of plated and dirty enough to make cleaning afterward satisfying.

CCI SGBs for most hunting. What ever's cheap for plinking. Winchester T22 for some accuracy work.

I love the .22 CBees. Luckly I got a brick of these because I can't find any locally.

So quiet you can hear the firing pin snap... these bullets have basically replaced my small collection of tuned pneumatic air rifles for pest control. You often get another shot if you miss! Pretty accurate at less than 50 yds too.

Very good results with the Winchester Power Points- accurate in my pet rifle with an excellent swat on small game.

Tried the QuikShok HPs that divide into three fragments on impact- stringed horizontally in my gun- might be better for stopping larger varmints like groundhogs which can absorb the full effect of the round.

I like the PMC .22LR "scoremasters" they are really accurate and are under $12 a brick. I also like the Remington line of .22LR ammo. :mad:

CCI Stingers

I happen to like the Quick Shok .22 lr hyper.
I anchored a groundhog with one at about 40 yards last spring. I kept giving him more...
Shot a squirrel with one. Don't do that if you want to eat it.
I also like whatever cheap bulk pack I can get.
My guns also like Stingers.

Anybody tried Aguila Specialty Ammo in .22 rimfire?

I saw in Dillon's Blue Press <UL TYPE=SQUARE><LI>a .22 Colibre that uses no gun powder. Quiet, but won't cycle an auto ... no kidding! <LI>A .22 SSS (Sniper Sub Sonic) that claims to be the heaviest bullet you can get (doesn't say HOW heavy) <LI>And then there is the .22 Super Magnum, supposedly the fastest .22 LR you can get</UL>

If you like shooting .22, check out http://www.outlandsales.com
They have about anything you want in .22 rimfire ammo. I shoot mostly CCI now. After testing most everything CCI was the most consistent ammo for the money.

sensop, the Aguila SSS shoots a 60 gr. bullet. It appears to use a .22 short case in order to keep the OAL the same as a LR. The ballisics are:

Muzzle -- 950 fps 120ft/lbs
100 yds -- 802fps 86ft/lbs

Looks like a useful round, but ballistically the maximun and hyper velocity stuff is superior in most cases. I would bet that the SSS is more accurate at longer range with higher retained energy than the some of the super-light (sub-35gr.) hyper stuff.

Winchester Power Points......Nuff Said

February 14, 2000, 11:26 PM
Power Points are accurate in my 10/22. I like the 40 grain hollow point.


February 16, 2000, 10:40 PM
SENSOP, who makes this SUPER MAGNUM? and where can I get them?

If you can't win by reason, go for velocity!

My favourate round is the WINCHESTER Subsonic.
In my 10/22 It deadly accurate and quiet (my 10/22 is suppressed) while still being reliable.

[I'm quietly impressed with the 10/22 too, I am always amazed by how much junk gets pushed back into the action by the suppressor)

RWS Dynamit Nobel 40gr subsonic HP. Very quiet, very accurate in all my pistols and rifles. My "boys" are anxious to see how it expands in the cranium of feline preditors. :)

Tell me about it! I've got an AR with a suppressor (and also a .22 LR conversion bolt which I use for my .22 needs until I can afford a AWC's suppressed 10/22). If you think a .22 pushes back alot of junk you should see what a .223 does!

Starting from a totally clean gun I'm only able to get about 300 - 350 rounds out of my AR in a sitting before I start having cycleing problems and I need to slap in somemore lube to keep it running. Thank goodness the AR has that little cubbie hole in the stock to keep a small bottle of Breakfree in it.

I absolutely love those Aguila SSS rounds when I shoot tin cans they make an exit hole the size a little biger than a quarter. I was shooting at an old stump about 6 inches in diameter and they were going through!!! :eek: They are REALLY dirty though and the smoke burns the heck out of my eyes, but they are fun to shoot.
