CCI Quiet-22 Segmented hollow point offers a reduced noise 40 grain .22LR load that delivers for so many uses where noise is an issue, but you don’t need long distance ballistics. For small area pest control, or where noise is a problem, this is an excellent choice. This ammunition can also be shot out of a suppressed firearm.
The velocity of this cartridge is 710 feet per second and it has a very specific use case, as the round will have a distinct drop compared to normal supersonic .22LR due to the grain weight compared to the velocity dip. Additionally, all subsonic ammunition will have a reduced effective range due to similar drop characteristics. This particular load has a large drop in overall velocity, please factor this into your use case needs.
The CCI Quiet-22 is suitable for use in suppressed firearms for ultra quiet shooting. It is NOT suitable for hunting in ranges more than about 50 yards or for animals larger than nuisance animals of the small game/varmint variety.
This ammunition is a lot of fun to shoot and play around with in different conditions, certainly it fills a niche, but it’s more versatile than a surface level look might uncover. It can be shot out of any .22LR firearm but may not cycle certain semi automatic or automatic actions.
