View Full Version : Advice: Need info on Aguila SSS and 1/9 Twist

04-22-2011, 5:40 PM
Who here has made a successful 10/22 build for use with the Aguila SSS? To my understanding a 1/9 barrel will be needed to stabilize the heavy sucker, but I'm looking for more specifics. What brand barrel? Length? What type of groups were you able to achieve? Thanks! :D

Don't waste your time just because a 60 grain .22 sounds unique. They keyhole even out of 1/9 barrels. They are just a bunch of hype. You will just end up wasting money. There is no real advantage in CA. where sound suppressors are not legal. If you want a subsonic .22 buy some 40 grain Remingtons and a .920 heavy barrel and you will be more than happy.

I shot some of these from a HP-22 pistol and they were very accurate. Of corse all shots were less then 10 yards. Cycled the gun just fine

I shoot it in my ar conversion, no keyholes out to 50yrd, the max I have shot it. I love how quit it is.

This is what I use. http://www.tacticalinc.com/blued-threaded-twist-ruger-1022-barrel-p-558.html

What surprised me, was how well the SSS works in my Sig Mosquito.

I shot some in a 1/8 match barrel through a suppressor. No key holing at 25 yards. Very accurate. Sure has it's own smell.
