    CCI still makes shorts, the one pictured was bought couple months back, longs are the hard ones to find. the shorts I have are CB shorts @ 710 fps, that long I believe is 770 fps although they make them in 535 fps as well. They use long rifle size mostly for magazine feed issues, most box magazines won't handle shorts

    Yeah, the CCI Quiets are a “CB Long” (CB is short for cap and ball, from the old parlor pistols that would fire a BB propelled by a percussion cap, but no powder)

    You can get CBs in both long and short, but they have essentially the same performance. (The Longs don’t have any more powder than the Shorts). The reason the Longs exist is that they feed better in some guns (those with detachable mags in particular). Something like a lever 22 with a tube magazine will feed both types easily. But in something like a semi-auto Ruger 10/22, not only will neither have enough oomph to cycle the action, but the Longs can still at least be cycled manually, but the shorts just jam up in the action.





    By the way, you can still get parlor pistols: https://marstar.ca/product/pedersoli...ished-white-2/

    CB = conical ball
    CCI quiets are long rifle
    the Aguila are primer only, 22lr pistol ammo
    the Pedersolis are .177 caliber

    420 fps is the slowest i've heard of. Interesting.

    If you’re going to try those in your cooey, maybe read up on squibs and how to remove them first.

    Thanks for the warning! I'll stick to 710 fps for now!

    Regarding your comment/s insofar as .17 HMR bullets being the unofficial king of rimfire - have you had any hands on experience with .17 HMR boat tails as opposed to other .17 ammunition ? If so, was the performance improved enough to make a difference or was it marginal ?

    Thanks.

    I have had the best success/accuracy with Federal Automatch .22 40 grain bulk ammo.
    It works well in every .22 I have tried it in and that is around eight rifles and one handgun.
