Guns Winchester brings the silence. Ryan Houtekamer February 3, 2016 During the last couple of years the only bulk ammo you could seem to find in Canada was regular Winchester M22 high velocity. Many boxes of it have been pushed through the 10/22 and for the most part it has been fairly decent ammo. For readers living in America who can actually own suppressors (or people who just want a quieter bullet) Winchester has a new M22 out on the market. The Winchester M22 Subsonic will be sold by the 100 or in bulk pack. Which is awesome. Nothing beats plinking and not having to wear hearing protection. They sent over some information so we could pass it on. Winchester Ammunition delivered one of the most significant innovations to hit the rimfire world in 2013 with the introduction of the 17 Winchester Super Magnum, but where new rimfire loads are concerned, the company is far from over. In 2016, Winchester Ammunition continues to invest in its rimfire product line with the development of a new M-22 Subsonic .22 LR round. The M-22 is designed specifically to function in semi-automatic firearms, while remaining subsonic from both pistol and rifle length barrels. The new M-22 Subsonic features a 45-grain black-plated lead round nose bullet that has the equivalent energy of full velocity 36-grain rimfire products. In addition, the M-22 Subsonic utilizes non-corrosive priming and clean burning powder for reduced muzzle flash. The M-22 Subsonic was also created with suppressed firearms in mind, but performs just as well in unsuppressed rifles and handguns. During Winchester testing, M-22 Subsonic rounds measured 129 dB from an unsuppressed rifle. That is significantly quieter than a full velocity .22 LR fired from a suppressed rifle, which typically measures around 138 db. With the addition of a suppressor, M-22 Subsonic achieves a remarkably quiet 116 db. M-22 Subsonic will be available in 100-round plastic packs and 800-round bulk packs. “Suppressed firearms are growing in popularity. This is the perfect round for shooters looking to reduce the noise of each shot even more,” said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition vice president of marketing, sales and strategy. As far as we are concerned the more 22 ammo that goes into production the better. People shouldn't be able to retire after selling a couple boxes of 22lr at a gun show. The subsonic M22 isnt up on Winchesters website just yet but you should hopefully see it out soon.
