I've read aguila sss is good for 1/9, any other brands that are good? With copper coating? Is 1/8 too fast for 22lr? What 22lr's would work with 1/8? I got a multi lower and want to buy another. I have a 1/9 barrel, was thinking about buying a 1/8. If 1/8 is too fast I'd buy another 1/9. What brands can I use for 1/8 1/9.

Buy some and try it out yourself 22lr is pretty cheap..I use CCI 40grs on my 1/9 barrel grouping around 2-3 inches at 50 yds.

1/8 or 1/ 9 are too fast for 22LR. Standard twist for 22LR is 1/16. Don't expect much in the way of accuracy!!....Use the cheapest stuff you can get cause it won't really matter. Also, the 223 barrel is oversize for 22LR, so the rifling won't fully engrave the bullet. The bullet will kind of wobble down the barrel.
