    I ordered my new Chiappa 1911-22. Can someone tell me what the best high velocity ammo for target shooting would be. From all the videos I have watched, I need to buy a powerfull high velocity to help work the action properly. I would really appreciate your input.

    Depends on what the gun will "prefer" after break-in. Buy a few boxes of different speed and brand ammo, your gun may have a like for standard velocity or 36 grain over 40 grain.

    You have an excuse to go to the range and play.

    I am with Jon.......the CCI ammo seems to work best for me in my Rem 597, Moss Tac 22, and my 22 conversion for my AR15.

    I own a Umarex Colt Government 1911 .22. With this pistol, I've done what I normally do with any and ALL auto loader, that I acquire, buy the smallest quantity of different ammo that's available and then find out which brand works best.

    Having said that, since I own a number of .22 and have a number of different brands of .22 ammo on hand, so with my Umarex Colt, I've found that I can get by with CCI Blazer with minimal issues which costs me about $18.00- tax included- a brick at a local gun shop. Some of the other "bargain" ammo works OK in this pistol, but this stuff costs a dollar or two more than the Blazer, so I use Blazer for "bargain" ammo. I've also found that Stinger, Mini Mag, and Velocitor by CCI work well also.

    CCI has worked well for me with almost all of my .22 cal guns, especially autoloaders,
