CCI Subsonic all day. You will only hear the impact.
If you are target shooting competitively the real high end ammo is required,
Steel at 450 yards is not what I call normal competitive RF shooting. I have never tried to hit steel at 450 yards with a 22 so I have no advice as to what the best ammo for that would be. Almost all rimfire bench and group games are 25 to 100 yards and the difference in winning versus loosing is tiny. If you can't shoot 50X at 50 yards you aren't going to be in the running.I respectfully disagree. I tried SK match, tennex, eley match and I had much better groups with eley subsonic hollow points, next best was actually cci standard v. I shot both out to 450 on steel.
That is fair, the only 22 competition that comes to my area is a PRS style match 50-300m targets. I don't have my note pad in front of me but iirc with tennex and match I had like 0.7" group at 50 yards vs 0.3"Steel at 450 yards is not what I call normal competitive RF shooting.
