    Greetings all. I'll be acquiring a SU-22 shortly and was wondering if it cycled subsonic ammo after break-in (or before) OK. What brands are you using? Most of my rimfire shooting is done suppressed and I typically use CCI subsonic or standard velocity. The CCI subsonic HP has a large driving band & is hard to chamber in some guns. I've read that the SU-22 has a Bentz style chamber for accuracy and was wondering what kind of ammo ya'll are using. TIA.

    I have a couple of varieties of subsonic ammo but have yet to try it in my SU-22. I believe ktwm has tested the SU-22 with subsonic ammo.

    I'd expect the SU-22 to cycle with the subsonic ammo that uses a very heavy bullet but subsonic ammo with light bullets may not have enough power to properly cycle the action?

    I'd like an optional noise suppressor for the SU-22 but there's no way I'm going to suffer the cost or the "imperial entanglements" I'd need to obtain one. Keeping people from having a quiet .22 rifle is dumb. >:(
