CCI Quiet 22

Postby newguy » Thu May 24, 2012 8:32 am

These look like they may work well for some who have neighbors that aren't gun friendly

There was a fella selling the Aquilla 22 caps at Southington, FWIW. These are powered by the primer compound alone, I believe.
Gone are the days of CB and BB caps, I guess.

The .30 caliber plastic bullet would also work in closer quarters, but they're far from quiet.

I can just imagine what CCI is going to want cost wise for these. Soon as something considered speacil you have to add 5 bucks to the price

I have shot a couple boxes of the CCI Quiet. They are a little louder than the CB rounds. They dont have nearly enough power to cycle the action on a semi though.

I ran Aquila sub-sonic 22s out of my Marlin 795 a couple months ago...humongous 40 grain bullet, probably the same as these CCIs. Ran fine, actually ran better than the Wally World white box Winchester crap, but not quiet enough for my 'hood.

I shot some 22 quiets today. Side by side to standard velocity. With my suppressor on it was a tiny bit quieter than the standard. Not sure if I was just hearing the bullet impact the dirt berm with just a little less power behind it.

Wounldn't cycle, kinda guessed that going into it.

But, without the suppressor on I think they are both too loud for back yard pest control. I was shooting out of my AR-22 with a 8 1/2 barrel so I think it would be a bit quieter out of a 16" or 18" rifle. Next time I'll bring my 10/22.

Aguila super sniper subsonic are pretty quiet and pack a good punch.
60 grain bullet

Personally, I love the CCI CB Longs.

You have to cycle an automatic manually of course, but they are QUIET.

If you're looking for REAAALLY quiet, you can't go wrong with the Aguila Super Colibri. A hand clap is louder.

I have a box of those, they're awesome. I just find that they don't cycle manually in any of my autos. :)


I just like the CCI's. They seem to print slightly better groups (although not by a huge margin), and knock down raccoons a little better.


Now that I think of it, I'll probably pick up a brick.

The bullet is so light that accuracy is gone after about 25 yards if there is even the slightest breeze. It's a shame since they're so quiet.

They are great for shooting in the basement though. 8)
