    Bought a couple boxes yesterday and put a bunch through my Ruger Bearcat. They were louder than CBs but nothing near a regular .22. Seemed to be accurate and had more power than a CB. Went through my burn barrel with ease. Needed some vent holes. :p I paid $3.75 a box of 50. I liked them and will buy more. One comment, I don't think a standard back yard fence will stop them. (just saying as they advertise great for back yards. I have a state hunting area for a back yard so I'm good.)

    Here's what CCI says about them.

    http://www.cci-ammunition.com/whatsnew/newproducts.aspx

    Set your 22-caliber LR rifle to stealth mode with the new CCI® Quiet-22™ rimfire round. Ideal for bolt-action and single shot .22 LR rifles (and perfectly safe in semi-automatics), this new reduced report cartridge generates ¼ the perceived noise level of standard velocity .22 LR round. Perfect for areas where noise may be a problem and ideal for introducing youth to the shooting sports, the Quiet-22 allows for safe shooting enjoyment without hearing protection.

    FEATURES & BENEFITS
    • Ultra-quiet plinking round in 22-caliber LR rifles
    • 75% reduction in perceived noise of standard velocity .22 LR
    • Standard CCI .22 LR case
    • Excellent accuracy and low velocity (710 feet per second)
    • Better performance than an air rifle with similar noise levels
    • No hearing protection required
    • Great for backyard plinking and youth shooting
    • Ideal for legal shooting areas where noise may be a concern

    Sounds like a great round. 730 fps with a 40gr bullet. The CB shorts use a 29gr bullet at 710 fps. To me that's a step up in performance, and energy delivered. Will have to try some.

    (thinking, this could be the quiet solution to all the "neighbor's" stray
    9 lived critters!) Just kidding. :D

    I also like the fact that he paid only $3.75 for a box of 50. The CB shorts are almost $8 for a box of 50.

    Not quiet, but I enjoy ventilating my burn barrel with my 45 colt peacemaker. Makes nice big holes. Even more fun when you start with a new barrel full of water with the top off.

    CB Shorts use only the primer for propellant, the CB Longs use one grain of powder. The Standard .22 Long ( now almost non Existent ) and the .22 Long rifle use the same case. Just for information the CCI Stinger case is 1/10 of an inch longer than a standard .22 LR case.The advantage of the CB Longs are that they can be hand cycled through most Auto actions, the CB Shorts will hang up in most .22 auto actions. Neither have enough force to work the automatic actions of most auto handguns and rifles, I have only heard of one auto rifle that will function with CB Longs and I can not remember the make. They ( the manufactures ) also recommend that CB's not be used in rifles ( I do anyway ). I have heard of CB shorts hanging up in " tight " .22 rifle barrels. Which means you have to push out ever so many that are hung up in them.:D

    I used CB longs and it was no louder than my 1000 fps Pellet rifle in .177

    The Model 552 BDL Speedmaster from Remington is the only American-made 22 autoloader that handles 22 short, 22 long, and 22 long-rifle cartridges interchangeably.

    It would be nice with this ammo to not have to scrub the crud out of the chamber after shooting shorts or longs in a lr chamber . Got a 500 round box orderd, just have to wait now. It will be nice to shoot at home and not worry about bothering the nieghbors. Just got to see how well it groups at 25 yards.

    I have an old .22 bolt rifle that loves sub sonic ammo. I'll have to try a box.

    Thanks for the info but I think i'll be ok with that. My regular range ammo is wolf/sk so theres allways that graphite/wax concoction they use to deal with. Might give me a reason if accurate enough to go out and buy another savage gave my old savage fv/sr to one my girls and my old remington 511p to my other girl.
