At one time I bought a case of this. As you note it was very good if not slightly more expensive than say CCI SV. Wish I would have bought multiple cases. Maybe we’ll see in quantity offerings again some day.

Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

I have a Ruger Mark IV that i use with a Silencerco Sparrow. I usually shoot the American Eagle 45 Grain Suppressor rounds through it that others have mentioned. I use that same ammo in my 10/22 with a 16” barrel and haven’t noticed a supersonic crack. I’ve found the 45 Grain subsonic tend to work really well and I also use the Winchester M22 Subsonic rounds. Every once in a while I’ll run a mag of the “full power” CCI through it as I find it tends to break up a lot of the copper/carbon fouling in the can.
I have never noticed any key holing with this ammo.

I bought some Gemtech .22 suppressor ammo. They look very suspiciously like the CCI standard. I basically shoot CCI standard out of my Sparrow. It's quiet enough.

I experience the same type of failure to cycle the slide with the Quiet .22 ammo.

You can only control what you can control. Nothing more. Nothing less.
