Not all model lines will be available at any one time, from any one distributor. You have to shop around a bit -- even in the best of times.

Pretty much all 22lr match ammo is priced too high right now. If the best is too much to spring for, the mid-priced lines of the good manufacturers are still quite accurate. And probably more accurate than the majority of rifles and trigger pullers are consistently capable of. The top-of-the-line ammo varieties are probably waste of money for those who aren't capable of consistent 1-hole groups at 50 yards, and who want to shoot targets at 100-200 yards.

A good all around .22 is CCI 40 grain CPRN.

Suppressed equals some variety of subsonic ( a synonym for standard velocity)
Nearly all standard velocity will tend to be anywhere from a little to extremely more accurate than any high velocity
“Acceptable accuracy”? Everyone has a different standard here. What I find acceptable ( we will use the yardstick CCI standard here) for routine use won’t cut it when I shoot prs/ nrl22 events.
My current go to is SK pistol match special.
Very reliable in all my semis, great accuracy. Not horribly expensive. It runs a hair faster than most standard velocity while still being subsonic, and gives semis a bit more functional assurance.

Most importantly MUST CYCLE A SEMIAUTO

Since this is 'most important' should point out this 100% depends on the semiauto(s) in question.

After trial and error I've gravitated toward Federal Champion .22 LR as it cycles everything I currently have. It has its own characteristics and I don't doubt there are designs it would not work in, however, and I don't doubt that I will have to confirm whether or not it cycles in future .22LR purchases.

For shooting at things other than game, CCI Standard.

For shooting at game, CCI Mini-mags.

If I was a target shooter, Eley Tenex.
