    Round nosed solids for me, after being suprised by their consistent accuracy and velocity I managed to get several thousand rounds of winchester m 22 for a very good price.
    The stuff was evidently designed for use with .22 ar conversions and the demand suddenly dissapeared!
    Anyhow the claimed velocity of 1250 is wrong it's 1215 with a SD of 8 which is pretty bloody good.
    I don't think hollow points really are that much better at small game shooting velocities and I'm sure some of the hollow pointing I've seen must throw the balance off.

    I would have to agree regarding the accuracy over speed comments. I have never recovered a 22 bullet from a rabbit. They almost always go right through, even subsonics like Magtech that were almost a bucket (big hollow point). As such, when shooting rabbits, increasd speed will fall (flatten the curve.....) but the additional energy simply makes a deeper hole behind the animal you just shot....

    I have always had better success with subsonics than I have with hyper velocity, but mostly due to accuracy and my practise / familiarity with the trajectory.

    I did a spreadsheet comparing them all. Will dig link.

    Anything supersonic will have issues at ~124m as it goes trans-sonic.

    Standard velo is usually accurate-est.

    Any game you're thinking to shoot at 100m, any .22 retained energy will do. **Accuracy beats power at that range**

    Heavier projos retain more impact energy down-range.

    Man, that Velocitor stuff hauls ass! Must be C4 in those cases to achieve 1435fps with a 40 gr.

    It doesn't, it goes about the same as CCI Mini mag

    From my range testing of super quick 1700+fps Fiocchi I found it had half the drop at distance and half the accuracy. Wasn't good enough - accuracy is king for a 22.

    We effectively shoot bunnies at 100m with ammos that group well in a specific 22. Sometimes high velocity ammos (1200-1300fps) can shoot just as accurately at 100 as subs (down to half inch groups at 100m) - depends totally on the individual rifle.

    This was all advertised velocities I think. But I did chrony a few brands I had in different rifles I had (semi and bolt) and they were near enough for comparison.

    Those (winchester I think) 40grn power points must be up there.

    I'll have to chrono some soonest, but not in the 1902 Winchester!

    Used a hell of a lot of both Winchester Sub and Power Point both 40 gr. In the Marlin I once had muzzle velocity of Win Power Point was 1240 Av and Subsonic in my Ruger was at 1050 fps. Both these rounds were capable of good accuracy out to 75 -80 yards with shots at 100 still being doable. An accurate rifle is important but plenty of practice helps a lot.
