    My .22 being an AR upper is quite fussy. Really only likes the CCI 'Suppressor' stuff designed for semis.
    Of course it's one of the more expensive .22 ammo out there. Shoots okay with CCI Minimags within 50m, but out to 100m they are transonic and groups spread.
    Need to try some Federal stuff, as it hates Winchester.

    I picked up Eley HP Subs and love them, More accurate and way quieter than anything else I tried in my CZ452, even quieter than the CCI Suppressor rounds which were $29 for 50!

    I use Winchester 40gr with my 10/22 and accuracy and cycling very good. I hear the. 42gr is the way to go but I bought an outer so still chewing through the 40's. A mate does professional pest control with a 10/22 and he literally "swears" by Winchester.

    They hit well. I like them too but the neck and action must be kept clean or they are poor recyclers.

However i thought to bring along some CCI subs just in case. Starting using them and the coons were doing back flips out the trees with only one round.

    Will never use Remmington .22 subs again, stuffs useless!!! Still have that same box sitting at home.

    More expensive than CCI standard but performs better and cheaper than CCI Suppressor.

    At that price they are worth a try. A little slower than the CCI subs, so hopefully that will keep the number that go supersonic to a minimum.

    And that!!!! Bloody filthy alright, makes clean up a bit of a pain afterwards. And if i understand it correctly its very corrosive so if it is left is not so flash for your barrel.

    spent 10 years in OZ so cant comment from recent experience but tried various subsonics-Eley, PMC. Not really a lot around and cost was a factor so stayed away from CCI ammo. Always found the Winchester and also kilwell hushpower (I think they were Winchester anyway) worked better than anything else
