New CCI Quiet-22 Ammo

CCI Quiet-22 ammoCCI is bringing out a new .22 LR cartridge called the Quiet-22.  The new rimfire round will be a low velocity round designed specifically to produce less noise when compared to a standard velocity 22 LR cartridge.  CCI claims a 75% reduction in noise.

The Quiet-22 uses a 40 grain round nose bullet and creeps along at only 710 fps.  This cartridge will function perfectly fine in any single shot or bolt action gun.  According to CCI, the round will also perform well in semi-auto firearms, though manual cycling may be required due to the low velocity.

So, why would anyone want a really slow, really quiet .22 LR cartridge?  I can think of a couple of reasons.  You may think of more.
