I say, I say, BOY!,- It'll work. I would use .22WMR just so I could back off a little further. But stay within 40 yds and you'll be fine.

Times like that, I feel the need for a 22 WMR. But, I get by with the 22 LR and hollow point ammo. The hollow points do seem more effective.

Thanks for the info trying to stay subsonic suppressed. They usually come in before hogs. So I intend to pop a few before a Pineywoods Rooter comes in grin Feeder is 34yds

Just pop them in the dome if you don’t want them to run off and die. Dead either way though.

Sight in your rifle for 34 yards and practice head shots. Coons can make a lot of squealing if wounded.

Good advice I will do that. Put a target under the feeder scratch

It will work. Might not be a quick one shot kill every time, just keep shooting. Headshot advice is spot on though, heck yea.

No reason to buy subsonic if you have standard velocity

"Subsonic" .22 ammo has always confused me. That's like selling Subsonic. 45 acp ammo.

I guess it depends on what velocities they actually produce. While most standard velocity .22 ammo claims similar figures as subsonic ammo, some claim above subsonic speeds. If they live up to their claims, then it does matter.

Aren’t they used usually in combo with a suppressor?

Suppressor reduces the powder explosion sound coming out of the barrel. Subsonic ammo eliminates the crack of the bullet breaking the sound barrier.

Could be wrong but that’s what I’ve learned on here.


To be determined

Almost all ammo designated as standard velocity is already subsonic at typical Texas altitudes. Ammo marketed as subsonic is typically standard velocity ammo in a different box with a higher price.

May not be right; but most hunters would not like to be shooting multiple times around their feeder; with a smart buck hanging in the area. Coons usually come out late, late, in the day, just about the time deer are roaming all over the place. If you have 8 coons at one feeder(like I did) set out 3 Dukes, catch 3, catch 3, basically done. Shooting 8 times, even before the season, is a signal. Reducing all activity around that feeder as quietly as possible can never be bad. With that said, late after the season, who cares.

Standard velocity ammo is already subsonic. I laugh every time I see "subsonic .22 ammo" marketed at a higher price.

We shot SV beside sub sonic;,and the sub sonic “seemed” much more quiet. Maybe not, I’m old. But, if you go buy ABC ammo, which most people do, it travels above sound, and is louder.

Standard ammo suppressed 1080fps is quiet enough, bolt cycling is louder than the muzzle report. I saw some subsonic at Academy 580fps (too slow for me). So picked some more CCI Standard and Norma Tac22 1083fps. They shoot MOA to sub MOA in the A22 most of em in one hole.

Those shoot very well in the A22 but LGS was out of them. Only had 1200fps plus

I won't shooting near deer season. Coons usually come in an hour or two before the hogs
