Winchester® Super-X Subsonic .22 LR Rimfire Ammo - Hollow Point
I found that my CZ 452 American .22 LR. absolutely loves this Winchester Subsonic ammo. It has proven to be very accurate on paper for me at 25 to 50 yards. Never tried shooting any farther to see what it will do. No need to as I intend to use this ammo for squirrel hunting. I can't wait to see what this ammo can do on the little nut munchers.... I like the big hollow point and being a 40 grain bullet, I bet it packs a nice whalop on impact...... C'mon ya'll getcha some & lets go squirrel Huntin.....

I ordered the Winchester Subsonic ammo from Bass Pro and was very surprised on how fast it was received. Also, Bass Pro was the only place that I could find this ammo. The Winchester Subsonic ammo is extremely accurate and when used with a noise suppressor, it is very quite. I shoot approximately 500 rounds a month of this ammo.

Subsonic performance on small Game
I have used the winchester subsonic rimfire on squirrels for the last two years. Over 100 kills have been conducted in both savage BVII as well as rem 541T HB. These guns have been tuned to shoot these bullets into .5inches at 50 yds. These bullets kill squirrels reliably with any solid body hit. Many have been killed with "gut" hits which are not considered immediately lethal. All Hits are confirmed with the characteristic solid thunk, not readily discerned with high velocity rounds many times without alarming nearby feeding squirrels.

Ok for subs
Always on the look-out for good subsonic ammo. Thought I'd give these a try...........
As for reliability, no misfires yet.
Accuracy is so n so, little over an inch at 50 yards thru my Remmy 581. Grain of salt here, every firearm has its preference for ammo, and varies from lot to lot.
Will not cycle an action of a 10/22. Dynapoints and Wolf match will.. although the Dynapoints are generally transonic, will crack the sound barrier occasionally depending on the ambient temp. (I've clocked the Dyna's @ ~1100 fps).
These are definitely subsonic, Chronied them at an avg of 1050 fps thru my bolt action 16" bbl. No crackers whatsoever.
40 grain hp bullets an added bonus.
Give them a try, the cost factor is minimal, and it might be the ammo that your gun likes.
