    hello all, Where are you guys getting your 22lr subsonic ammo? I am looking to get some and I figured you guys and gals would know where the cheapest places were. Either local to salem or via internet. thank you all for your help. :thumbup:

    Walmart had some the last time I was there, as did Wholesale Sports, A few different brands if I recall. Online I've bought from EA Author Brown, at the time I was looking I remember they had some good prices on Aguila. The Walmart was up north from there, but I bet they carry the same stuff. I may have even seen some CCI or Rems at Bi-Mart.

    What are you shooting? The barrel length will matter, many times you do not need to buy sub-sonic, others will be sub-sonic by default.

    CCI standard velocity, work well in my 10/22 with a 16.5" barrel, I can't tell the difference between that and Remington sub-sonic, from Walmart.

    CCI quiet, would not cycle to guns.

    Ruger 22/45, with a 4" barrel, I had it cut down, can shoot high velocity and be just as quite as sub-sonic.

    BTW I am using a SS Sparrow

    I am shooting a savage fvsr 16.5" bolt gun with a sparrow ss as well. And NWcid thank you for the link they have good prices. If I dont have to buy sub sonic to get the same sound that would be great as they are more expensive.

    Same conclusions with CCI standard and Sparrow supressor with a savage 22.

    I highly recommend the CCI 40 grain subsonics and for a 10/22 with supressor, the poly buffer bolt stop pin

    For my 77/22 all I have ever run is the Aguila 38gr SS ammo. I shoot out to 300 yard with it. I have run close to 10k of it over the past few years.
