    400 cci small game hollow point subs for other subs

    Hi all. I've got 4 packs of these I'd like to swap as they aren't subsonic in my 22(must be to tight)

    Located north shore Auckland.

    I've noticed quite a few CCI "subs" going sonic in my rifles lately, must be an inconsistent batch

    Itís a bloody nightmare! Both new (April) 500 boxes of CCI Standard Velocity are going supersonic and so are the damned CCI Subsonic HPs I bought to replace them last month. Varies from every second or third shot to one in ten or twelve, sometimes three in a row.

    Drives me mental. Prior to these purchases I went through 1000 rounds of standard velocity with this rifle and never once had a supersonic shot.

    I messaged CCI with the batch numbers and got a fairly non-committal response back.

    They did confirm that these were manufactured last year, and are therefore Covid bullets. Bet thatís the problem - stop start manufacturing lines and a drop in QC.

    (Iím exclusively using it for pest control thatís why its extra annoying)

    Iíve got cci from approx 3 years back that goes supersonic maybe 1 in every 3. Iím using suppressor on non cut down barrel. Iíll double check the ammo but have since changed to good old consistent subs

    Most of the CCI subs thru my 22 are supersonic.
    Just taken the suppressor off no.
    They shoot pretty straight tho
