    copper plated subs

    Hi all
    maybe this has been covered before.
    I find that the copper plated high velocity rounds feed much more smoothly into my CZ22 LR than the solid lead subs. Are there copper plated subs available in the UK?

    none that I am aware of.
    what subs do you use and have you tried swapping them.
    mine doesnt like Eleys, but does like RWS

    Be aware that the "copper plate" on many brands of 22LR ammunition is simply a colored wax lubricant. I would switch ammunition.~Muir

    Federal Gameshok were OK but CCI are very sticky.
    Maybe it is just a wax on the Federal high velocity but it really helps that ammo feed.

    Personally i would touch federal in any calibre
    CCI are OK in .17 and WMR but I dont use them in the .22lr
    the copper "plated" HV I had (winchester IIRC) were little more than a electroplating that you could scrape off with a nail. doubt they had any impact on the feed

    for subsonics you will struggle to get better than Winchester, Eley and RWS IMO
