if I'm carrying my suppressed 22 I like subsonic HPs. SK, RWS and CCI all usually shoot well and perform fine. I do like the flatter trajectory of mini mags though.

If I’m shooting suppressed CCI suppressor 45HP or RWS. If not suppressed I always liked with white box WW hp bulk ammo. But whatever my rifle shots most accurately.

I use both Wolf and Norma Tac 22 40 grain solids, which are both subsonic. Then I use a D Rock tool to hollow point them. Even subsonic they expand in squirrels but dont fragment, and hit with a nice "plop". Both shoot in the .4's (with an occasional flier) out of my Tac Solutions 10/22.

What is everyone's acceptable level of accuracy for a hunting round? Taking into consideration head shots on squirrels. What size 5 shot group at 50 yards does your hunting rifle need to shoot in order to be adequate enough to hunt with? Mainly speaking of the rifles and loads each have already mentioned here.

Five shots under a nickel at 50 yards. Somewhere around five shots in 1/2" - 3/4" at 50 yards at most. Any groups bigger than that wouldn't be considered as acceptable for my preferences.


Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

CCI Mini Mag HP in my older Marlin gives dime sized at 50 for head shot nut munchers.

I prefer a ragged hole at 30sh since I rarely shoot 50 yards in the timber.

Winchester Power Point HP have also been very good.

I assumed a dime or nickel. I just bought a Ruger American compact and I'm experimenting. I've tried AE 38 HP, Mini Mags, CCI SV and SK+. I've been over 1" for 5 with all of these. I'm going to try some cheap Remingtons that I have when it warms up a bit. Availability is cramping me right now.

Try some Norma Subsonic or RWS Subsonic. The Norma Tac 22 shoots well in some rifles.

CCI Mini Mag. standard velocity with the lead bullet. It is a very forgiving bullet if the head is missed and has a quiet report. I quit hunting our Alaskan snowshoe hares about 20 years ago, but it worked well on head shots. I still pop a few spruce grouse every year from mid August to mid September.

My early 70's made in Belgium Browning T-Bolt shoots them very well, if I do my part.

If you have a Rural King around you- they all seem to have the TAC22 in stock. They aren’t cheap at $90/brick or $8.99/50, but they do shoot great in my CZ’s.

The CCI segmented subsonic hollow points often kill almost as fast as a 17 HMR.

after trying a myriad different .22s in my Marlin M25 over the past 40 years, I've come to the conclusion that the CCI Mini Mag 36 gr. HP's shoot the tightest groups in that particular rifle. However, I recently picked up a Heritage Rough Rider single action revolver......Something to play with for the grand sum of $139 bucks.

This revolver shows a marked preference for the Aguila .22 Super Extra 40 grain solids. Since the rifle shoots darn near anything into a 1/2 inch group at around 50 yards, I ordered 10 boxes from Brownells.

After testing them out in the rifle, I may have a new favorite.

I like the Federal bulk pack plated hp. Shoots consistently good groups in pistols and rifles, and drops rabbits right now.
