Hey has anyone seen or used this ammo yet? I havent seen it on the Turners shelves and am wondering if it has any trouble cycling a rifle.

Most low capacity ammo will not cycle a semi or not reliably. They can be used, just be aware that some extra work is required.

Here's the disclaimer at the bottom of the page:

NOTE: These cartridges may be used in semi-automatic firearms, however manual
cycling of the action may be required.

i have some, i also have the super colibri. the CCI Quiet is 210fps faster than the super colibri. i only use it in my 16" barrel bolt action rifle or my ruger LCR. it was recommended not to exceed an 18" barrel with this type of ammo.

How is everyone liking it? I have a box I bought a little while back, but can't find the time to get out and try it! Grrrr!

Well....if I didn't have to run my semi autos like bolt actions I would like it a lot more. Pretty accurate. Pretty eerily quiet. But racking my in between every shot w some snarled shells etc....annoying

it's quiet enough to play in your backyard. just keep an eye on your surroundings, especially behind your target.

I prefer my bolt action anyways, so cycling (or lack of) isn't an issue. I bought 'em to have some quiet sniper :TFH: :p rounds.

Hey all,
These do not cycle my savage 64fxp. However, they do well for accuracy in my h001 and Mk II FV. Great for knocking out ground squirrels quietly :)

I have cycled them through my Henry lever action. They're fun little buggers and cycle clean. My Walther p22 just laughs at me if i try to run tem through it.

The 29 grain version (http://www.cci-ammunition.com/products/detail.aspx?use=1&loadNo=0038) wont cycle in a 10/22, neither will the Colibri. Have not tried these yet, looks like I'm going to need to add some. The info on the CB Long states that they will not cycle in a semiauto, these say they might require manually cycling. Thanks Pennys Dad , these do look interesting.

Thanks for the thread, i was wondering about these as well. I currently use CB longs on my property during fire season so the neighbors wont be concerned with fires. (Yes I know lead doesnt spark, but I doubt my neighbors do). Anywho they work great, but are kinda dirty and wont cycle my 10/22.

I bought 10 boxes. They won't cycle my Colt M4 .22 but are pretty accurate out to about 50 yards. They make very little noise out of my rifle, but are pretty darn loud out of my single six - almost as loud as a regular velocity round from my rifle.

On my property, I shoot these from my rifle and regular Colibri's from my revolver. Sounds like a hand clap.

Finally got to shoot some of this today. It was quiet out of the 10/22 and 795 and a bit quieter out of my XT-22. Sounded like a loud clap IMO when it was shot.
