They make a loud bang but as for accuracy, its not there. Out of 4 different rifles it groups like a shotgun at 50 yds. I mistakenly ordered a brick of it when I really wanted the SuperMax Aguila. Oh well, just get a few more looks at the range when I fire some off. Minute of 5 gal bucket at 100yds. The Supermax (I meant to say Interceptor) is much better, only 1450fps but with a 40 grain bullet, lots of smack when it hits something. I know a guy who shoots it out to 600meters. Says it will penetrate a New York phone book at 300meters.

neat, didn't realize they're hollowpoint too. i'd imagine they'd do impressive stuff to ballistic gelatin up to 50 yds.

The interceptor is the 40 grain ~1500 one right?

I doubt hollowpoint rimfire ammunition would do anything spectacular to ballistic gel. I'm pretty sure it doesn't expand like JHP centerfire pistol ammo does.

LOUD and showy (flashy) out of a pistol. Had a rim on one give way and throw my 10/22 ejector about 20yds.

I'd recommend them in a small volume if you want a fun/different .22 round... or if you have a gun that has problems feeding regular/underpowered ammo.

Aguila super maximum hyper velocity 30 gr. RN at 50 yards. The hollow point shoots better than this in my gun but I can't find that target JPEG right now. Red center circle is 1/2" diam. Shot from Zastava Z5. not a bad hunting load in this gun. This is from the May Rimfire Challenge. Not a great accuracy round. Like all rimfire ammo, your gun may or may not like it.

That's not bad shooting with that ammo. I will try it in my Z5. I shot it out of my CZ, Savage, and 2 Marlins that just sprayed it all over the target at 50yds and even worse at 100yds. The Z5 amazes me at times with the right ammo. (Fed Automatch, Eley Sport and Wolf MT).

I have no complaints about this ammo. I use it in my 10/22 with a 1:9 barrel.
