I am not sure it has to do entirely with velocity...

Here is a 25 yard grouping with my AR 7

Worst accuracy was attained with both the fastest AND the slowest rounds.

Mini mags actually shot best for this thin barreled 22.

The .223 bullet is likely staying supersonic across the velocity spread at typical shooting ranges, a subsonic 22LR does not pass through the supersonic transistion zone and neither does the supersonic, at most ranges, .223/5.56 bullet. But a high velocity 22LR round transitions anywhere as close as 50 yards, more or less, and spends a lot of it's flight time in the transition velocity range. Subsonic 22LR ammo is often, therefore, inherently more accurate than the high velocity stuff at ranges beyond where the HV stuff transitions to subsonic.

sigshepardo: If you were shooting from a solid rest with good sights, groups with accurate rifles should have been smaller than 1" at worst, at 25 yards. It's impossible to tell which ammo is shooting more accurately with results like you show.

Savage MK II BSEV and SV CCI

BSEV:A number of different rounds were tried in this Savage Mk II. CCI SV worked extremely well at 50 yards. All further experimentation was stopped for a time. Buck for buck it's the best in that Savage. I'm sure some of the $20.00 Match will do better. Two boxes of that stuff is pricey. Costs as much as two bricks of CCI SV's with change coming back. Being retired does not allow $20.00 a box.

My 10/22 loves SK and Wolf, with PMC Zappers close behind. Everything else is all over the paper, especially Remington and Winchester.

I've been having great success with CCI blazer 22lr.

CCI SV or Aguila HV work well in my 39A and Marlin 25N. Don't have an auto loader. Yet.

My various 22’s seem to like Federal and CCI std vel ammo. Unfortunately, i have a lot of Remington Thunderbolt ammo. The 9422 eats it just fine, but the 39A doesn’t feed it well. The bolt actions don’t care what ammo. As for accuracy, the Remington is Ok, but the Federal and CCI are a bit better.

Marlin 39s can be quite finicky about feeding and extraction/ejection. Mine seemed to prefer CCI ammo to Federal. They also have a tight ejection port, so it's hard to pull one out if the extractor doesn't get it.

Just today, I took my old Ruger 10/22 out to the range, and just over my day pack, I shot 30 consecutive rounds through a 3" target @ 30 yards that measured right at 3/4ths of an inch (all well in the black, BTW).

This rifle is over 50 years old, has who knows how many thousands of rounds through it (my kid days; sometimes less than 50 cents a box of long rifle ammo constantly run through it...I've run this gun a lot through the years!) and has the original Weaver C4, 4X power scope on it. I shot this group today with CCI, 40 grn. STANDARD VELOCITY ammo. This stuff is the cat's a_ _ for .22 lr ammo. I just ordered 1000 more through Midway, today. Geeze but it's good to be able to get GREAT .22 ammo anymore! CCI standard velocity is all I need, certain sure! I got this rifle brand new back in '66 (if I'm remembering right) for $54.50 (thanks for the help, dad!). It's been said that every rifleman needs to own a 30-30 (I certainly do), but I think every rifleman should own a 10/22 besides (Just IMO). Still FUN (and accurate!) after all these years!

I gotta try the standard CCI. I mentioned the blazers earlier in this thread, but they are a high velocity round[yeah, I'm an idiot sometimes]. I have tried the CCI subsonic, minimags, CB shorts, but not standard.

I like those Blazer rounds. Just don't seem to have any locally.

That's the story of my life it seems. Whenever I settle on a particular favorite flavor of .22 ammo- about a month later is when it dries up and can't be found locally. I used to be able to get Wolf Target, SK pistol, and Geco locally, but the distributors must've found out I like it and now they won't ship it anywhere within 250 miles of me.
