Hello:
You must have a better box than i have because no way will my super colibri pass through a soft 2x4 which todays is actualy 1 1/2 inches i believe.
It sticks in only just flush with over an inch of bd left to penetrate.
Sure you didnt mean a soft 1x4 pine bd ?

Actually, I was confusing them with the CCI shorts I have been shooting. You are right, they will go just below flush in pine wood at point blank range.

You can begin to appreciate why Aguilla chose a 60 grain bullet for their subsonic ammo. It let them use a little powder without getting too much velocity and the inertia of the heavier bullet helps it coast down a bore.

Hello:
I dont know what aquilla 60 gr sub sonics cost a brick but if its any wheres close to the colibri at 70 dollars a brick ill pass.
Wasnt that long ago i bought 500 ct bricks of colibri and super colibri for 20 dollars a brick .
I know the 22 ammo shortage is in todays situation but i can still buy remington 525 ct 22 golden bulk packs for 24 dollars and limit two per.
I know thats not every where but its the case here and its showing up .
I myself dont see 70 dollars a 500 ct brick no powder being even fair for pricing.
I fortunately bought 1 brick of the colibri and 2 bricks of the super colibri so im most likely good for my life as i dont shoot many like i used to.
But ill admit the shell looks sorta cool with the extra long lead slug but not worth the gouging prices.

Hmph! I've shot box after box of Quiet through Stevens offhand target rifle with a 24" barrel, and never stuck even one. I must be doing something wrong.

Hate that Colibri stuff. It leaves a nasty hard fouling deposit, and the primer compound contains ground glass. Very abrasive, especially because there is so much more of it in the Colibri charge.

I have had 7 bullets stick in the barrel most 2" from the end. It's a CZ452 Lux with 24" barrel. I don't think anything is wrong with the ammo. It works great in short barreled rifles. I just don't have a short barreled gun. My CZ is 24"

7 bullets at one time or one seven different times??

Cool cci quiet 22

I have been looking for the "quiet" for quite a while but have been unable to find them in my part of Virginia. Any thoughts on if they will cycle correctly thru my old Browning Auto. with its 19" barrel ? Thanks in advance

The bullets will "probably" exit the bore, but they will not cycle your action correctly, no. You'll be operating it manually or clearing a lot of jams.
