    Ammo for a .22LR

    I have ordered my .22LR CZ Style with a 20" Barrel, what ammo would YOU use? I have not had rimfire before so don't know much about the ammo, It is Bolt action and will have a SAK Mod fitted, will be used for rabbits and other vermin.

    I have heard all sorts of different things, so would like some guidence please.

    i've always used winchester hollow point sub sonics mate. found them to knock the bunnies over nicely.

    .22 ammo

    Every .22lr is diferent, i use eley subsonics and they do me fine.
    The best thing to do is to buy a box of all the makes you can get locally then try them all in your rifle , when you find what it likes then buy as many as you can. If you are using them for rabbits and such you are best sticking to the subsonics.
    Hope this helps, Ezzy.

    as said above, my brno likes winchester subs, it will not shoot eley bullets to within a 4 inch group at 50 yds.

    try a few brands and find out what it likes best.

    Eley Plus Subs every time.
    CCI are to be tried with caution, some subs are not, and some HV are sqibs!!
