    I can confirm that when you gut shoot a rabbit with a 223 and a vmax it's dead. Not saying anybody should gut shoot rabbits but it's more insurance for when you don't hit it in the right place. There is no replacement for displacement.

    SK ammo availability - just been into Belmont Ammo and they advise they have a good selection of SK arriving @ the end of Jan. Seemingly no SK Subs though.

    Note to self: Next time I'm out with the .338, find a slow bunny and a seriously good backstop...

    Winchester 40 or 42 gr subs is all I've ever shot and been successful for the intended task. Lately they have had the odd (1 in 50) sonic boom and some have what appears to be some wax on the shells which makes them a little difficult to retract. Other than that I've always found them very accurate

    was the projectile taken from a shot animal ? If so that's great expansion from a .22 round.

    Winchester hands down perform better on game, but price and accuracy see me shooting cci. Agree that Winchester subs aren't always subsonic in my rifle and I really don't get the point of shooting hv in a 22. Mine is always suppressed.

    Well I had to go to Winchester as local shop out off CCI subs. Brought a brick three weeks ago and I have got to say I am impressed. I lost no accuracy and performance equal to if not better that CCI on game.
    I will buy them again.

    Winchester don't feed as reliably in my marlin model 60.
    Out of interest @viper, how much for your brick of Winchester?

    HaHa I told you so!!!! (Just stirring)
    Try Kilwell Whisper. It's the same bullet, Winchester head stamp and all. But usually cheaper.

    Power point orange box, CCI stinger are my go to.

    Bulk Winchester 555 HP works well.
