Does anyone know where I can find this ammo locally? I am down to about a brick left and would like to replenish.

I must have missed it last time I was there. I usually pick up a couple bricks a year at the Springfield gun show but all the shithead hoarders bought EVERY SINGLE ROUND of .22 before 3pm on the first day.

We have a crate of that stuff. Very popular during winter time when people practice in their basements.

Will be at the Wallingford gun show this weekend.

You're talking about this stuff with the funny little bullets, right? If so, NGX has a pile of it too.

I have a box of this stuff.

In all honesty, I find that it sucks compared to CCI CB shorts/longs.

Just my opinion.

Any idea what they are asking for it? I will be by hopefully later today to pick up a brick. Thanks.

I use them for indoor shooting so the CB's are too loud. These Aguila ones have no powder at all. Just the primer for propellant. Extremely quiet. Even out of a .22 revolver.

I don't remember how much it is. Usual discount applies... :wink:

I won't be there tonight, but I'll be there after 5 tomorrow.

She won't even know... The Colibri makes less sound than slapping your palm down on a wooden table. :lol:

That's what I use it for. Extremely quiet. Very low power as well. This shit will still kill though so be careful.

Are you shooting these out of a rifle, or pistol?

All I know is, the Aguila's are slightly louder than the CB's out of my rifles. I don't know why, but they are.

CB's are also more accurate & better squirrel/groundhog/pest killers. :)

I grabbed this off the Midway USA website for this ammo:


Super Colibri has no powder, relying on only the primer to propel the bullet down the bore. The result is an extremely quiet rimfire round, perfect for close-range pest control or quiet plinking.

WARNING: These rounds are powered by the rimfire primer only. They must only be fired in handguns. If fired in rifles, the bullet may remain lodged in the barrel.
Will not cycle the slide of semi-automatic handguns
Aguila packages these as Long Rifle ammunition, but they are in fact slightly shorter than a 22 Long cartridge.

Interesting. I had never heard of this ammo until today!
