    I hunt with my 10/22 Takedown LITE with a suppressor using sub sonic ammo exclusively with no problem. I have tried over a dozen different flavors of sub sonic .22LR ammo and the ones that I have consistently good performance are listed below:

    - Remington SUBSONIC 40 grain hollow point
    - CCI SUPPRESSOR 45 grain hollow point
    - Fiocchi 40LHP subsonic 40 grain hollow point
    - Gemtech Silencer Subsonic 42 grain round nose.

    I tend to like the CCI SUPPRESSOR 45 grain hollow point the best.

    CCI Suppressor, will certainly give them a go, thanks for that, and the main reason for the thread.

    Happy with these for killing paper

    If I may add,
    4 or 5 years ago I got involved with the youth small bore team (.22 are most popular) at my rifle club.
    A few years before that I was searching for a target round that would be reliable for my assortment of .22's. A Ruger 10-22 among them. Also to include Semi pistols.
    For any of the Semi-Auto's, no matter if box mag or tube fed they were most consistent when using the Geco .22 long rifle boxed and marked for Semi-Auto.
    I introduced these to the Youth Semi shooters with very good results.
    They worked just as reliably in the Bolt actions and pump rifles they had brought.... as long as they were chambered for longs.

    I had researched these a little and I believe they came about and were marketed to the new AR15 in .22 long shooters...... But that's just me guessing

    Geco offers 2 styles, both are 40 Grn lead round nose. They are offered up for Bolt actions and for Semi's....... Usually at the same price.

    Specs for:
    Geco Bolt Actions: 40 Grn Lead round nose. 1083 FPS. On sale about $33 per 500
    Geco Semi Auto: 40 Grn Lead round nose. 1148 FPS. On sale about $33 per 500

    To add.. all casing from the box have the feel of a light lube on them. They are accurate and burn clean, making for a easy final clean.
    When ordering I now buy 2 boxes of 5,000 count for about $290.00 per 5k.

    I recently bought a 300 count box of CCI 40 Grn copper plated round nose (CPRN) they call AR Tactical @1200 FPS @ about $28.00 and had the kids try them out, but ran in to jamming/feeding problems from some who normally have no issues.
    I'll keep trying other brands, but for now am happy with the results we are seeing from the Geco 1148 FPS Semi's are giving us.

    Just my experience so far,

    If you want a semi-auto .22 rifle, I would suggest looking into a Remington 550 rifle. It uses a Williams (of M1icon Carbine fame) floating chamber and will reliably cycle subsonic, supersonic, short, long and long rifle .22 ammo. The only thing it will not cycle is .22 CB cartridges.

    It is a tube fed semi-auto though, but when you can fit about 25 short cartridges you won't run out of ammo very quick.

    Charlie,
    $33 for 500...........I am definitely in the wrong country. That is cheap.

    CCI loads at least two different sub sonic loads. One at 980 fps and one at 715 fps. Needs to say the 715 fps will not operate a semi-auto. But in my Hi-Standard pistol the 980fps works fine.
