If you are looking for a .308 caliber rifle bullet for subsonic use, you might be interested in the new projectile from Lehigh Defense. The new bullet is a 176 grain projectile that is specifically designed for subsonic use when loaded in a .308 Win and 300 BLK cartridges.
CCI is bringing out a new .22 LR cartridge called the Quiet-22. Â 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. Â CCI claims a 75% reduction in noise.
The Quiet-22 uses a 40 grain round nose bullet and creeps along at only 710 fps. Â This cartridge will function perfectly fine in any single shot or bolt action gun. Â 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? Â I can think of a couple of reasons. Â You may think of more.
