.22 Long Rifle with a 60 grain bullet. Subsonic. To keep the overall length correct they used a really short brass. Paco gave me this box of them. He says they are pretty accurate. He figured the velocity around 500/550 fps but never chronographed any.

I have. Shot a whole brick of it. But other than the odd smell that all their ammo seems to have, I really don't remember much about it. :-D

A few.

Dad played with them a while and they seemed to do pretty well...against all expectations. A buddy found out uninvited groundhogs don't like them at all. And, cas is right,they smell funny.

I've a box or two squirreled away, along with some Colibri (opposite end of the odd weight spectrum). Have shot the Colibri a bit, but haven't had a chance to do anything with the the others. Maybe one of these years we'll actually be up there for squirrel season or have another call for trying them out.

My namesake nephew has a 10/22 that shoots them pretty well. My brother has a 10/22 that scatters them like a buckshot pattern with keyholes.

Brother's rifle is a good bit newer than the nephew's. Don't know if that would matter, but it is what it is.

Thanks everyone.

I had never even heard of them. I will have to give them a try in several guns and see how they do.

My sample size is 1.

My CZ457 HATED the 60gr stuff. 6"-7" at 50 yds, and as others have noted, the occasional keyhole. I have no more.

There have been a couple of outfits who made 50gr subsonic. An apparently extinct outfit in the US called Patriot Ammo, and an outfit called Cascade de Mexico. The Patriot was allegedly made for them by CCI, they were out of the same city.

The CI is allegedly a former CCI factory for the Mexican market, now independent. It shoots OK not bad out of my Keystone pistol, and middlin' to poorly out of the rest of my fleet. It is easy to make Hollywood Quiet with it.

I bought more than I should have during the 2020-2021 shortages, but won't be buying anymore.

I think the weight limit for most .22s with "normal" rifling twists may be 45 grains or so.

I shot several boxes years ago. They are quiet and put a good thump on steel plates. I was Shooting them before I had a 22 can, but I do recall some folk saying they didn’t stabilized properly in mist 22 barrels and they weren’t safe to shoot through suppressors. Some one was making quicker stints barrels to shoot them suppressed but that seemed like a big investment for specific ammo that had spotty availability.

I do specifically remember using them to dispatch a ground hog my dad caught in a live trap. He called me and she’d if I had a silencer and at the time I thought that wa an outrageous question. Now that I own several and have even legally made a few it’s not a strange question at all. Anyways, I took some of this ammo and a bolt action rifle over and pretty quietly and effectively made eh live trap lose its name!

Notes from 2018-19

We've been having a raccoon problem lately, which culminated in a big boar catching a 60 grain Aguila 22LR SSS solid through the shoulders, crossing the body at a high angle from behind. Range was about 15 yards and it anchored him right there. There was a substantial exit and and the overall performance reminded me of similar size game I've killed with 38 Special target wadcutters.Rifle was a Marlin Model 60. A sample of one, but I was impressed.

______________________________________________________________________________

Today we have ‘rib results’ for the Beretta 21A, loaded with Aguila SSS 60 grain 22LR.

Setup is a beef rib taped to a gallon water jug, backed by an old phone book.

I noticed the jug jumped more with each shot and drained faster than it did with the CCI Velocitors. One of these shots penetrated the jug and knocked a hole in the phone book, but could be plucked from it easily. The other two also knocked a hole in the back of the jug, but bounced back and were found inside it. These Aguilas drove substantially more and larger rib fragments into the jug, which no doubt contributed to it draining quick.

Another view of the recovered bullets. It appears all three hit straight on from about 10 feet and they all bored through straight enough to compromise both sides of the jug. I note that all three bullets expanded more than the Velocitors. Aguila obviously uses dead soft bullets in this load. I later clocked these at 682.7 fps average from the Beretta.
