If you use your .22LR for hunting, you understand the importance of finding the right round. .22LR is great for small game such as rabbits and squirrels and varmints like coyotes. As with all hunting, shot placement is paramount, and due to the size of the round combined with the small stature of the game, placement can be harder to obtain. And although .22LR is a quiet round to begin with, reducing the report as much as possible increases the chance of multiple shots on a group or in an area. To reduce your .22LR’s report, take a look at these subsonic rounds from Eley.
These .22LR rounds weigh in at 38 grain, making them both lightweight and still within the standard weight range for the cartridge size. Being lightweight enables these rounds to fly towards targets at higher speeds and also help keep felt recoil to a minimum. These are Hollow Point rounds, so they begin to expand immediately upon impact. Each round leaves the barrel of your gun at a muzzle velocity of 1040 feet per second. Because these are subsonic rounds they move a bit more slowly and produce a lesser report. This ammunition is designed for hunting varmints and small game.
When you place your order for this single box of ammunition you get 50 rounds, which is just enough to get a taste of what these rounds are capable of doing. These boxes are a great size for stashing in your range bag or stacking on the shelf in your gun safe. If you intend to hunt, you might want to order more than one box to ensure you don’t run out at an inopportune moment. This ammunition is manufactured by Eley at their factory in London. All Eley ammunition is manufactured according to SAAMI or CIP specifications. Order now, and get ready to prove just how capable a hunting weapon your .22LR is.

- I just bought a Ruger 10/22 rifle yesterday, what ammo should I use, should any .22 LR works? and can long magazines be used also? Thanks Posted On: 5/24/2021 By: Joey Claud
- Thanks for reaching out Joey! With a semi-automatic 22 LR firearm, I find it best to avoid subsonic ammo. You would ideally have a supersonic muzzle velocity, because that means the cartridge will generate sufficient pressure in the chamber to cycle the firearm. A supersonic muzzle velocity is 1,125 fps or faster – a little slower than that can indeed work fine, though. Personally speaking, I prefer a copper plated bullet for semi-auto 22 LR firearms. I appreciate how much cleaner it keeps the barrel, because I'm not breaking out my Ruger unless I'm going through a couple of hundred rounds.
That said, I love CCI, and I believe you'll enjoy the Stangers we have in stock. The Winchester Wildcat and Aguila we have in stock should both work good too. If you'd like to read more about what kinds of ammo are best for your 10/22, then I'd recommend Ruger's own web page on the subject!

- Hello Julien! I regret that we're unable to ship to Canada. I suggest you search for ammo at ammobin.ca. They seem to have leads on several Canadian online ammo retailers currently offering 22 LR: ammobin.ca/en/rimfire/.22%20LR. Best of luck on your search!
