    I was shooting Lapua subsonics with ruger 10/22 w/silencer
    yesterday.
    Then I changed ammunition to standard velocity federals and
    my shots went 30centimeters lower. How can that be???

    Distance to target was ~40meters

    .22 are notorious for being picky.

    Same make and model with consecutive serial numbers will have distinct ammunition favorites. Find out what yours likes and buy a bunch.

    Good shooting.:)

    Picky. Maybe, but I still cant figure out how a faster bullet drops that much.

    What are the "ballistic tables" for the two rounds.

    Everytime I read a thread like this, I get jealous. In my lousy state of Illinois, I don't think a silencer was EVER legal! I gotta get outta here!

    I just picked up my "can" from my dealer and have had only enough time to put about 7 rounds thru it. It's an SWR Warlock and the first thing I noticed is that the "click clack" that I used to hear, now sounds like "CLICK CLACK!!!". When I put my thumb on the charging handle to hold it closed it's amazingly quiet. I haven't even had the oppertunity to zero the thing. I bought a brick of Rem Subsonics and some CCI Standard Velocity to try out. I am jonesin' so bad to go shooting... Stupid work...

    I'll let you know when I get it zeroed with the subs if I have the same issue with the high vel. ammo.

    Do you have a bolt buffer yet M60? That seems to quiet down the clacking.
    I'm trying to decide between a SWR warlock or AAC pilot for my 10/22.
    If you want to really frustrate a 10/22 shooter load up his mag with 3 different kinds of ammo for him before sighting it in. :)

    Barrel time may be the difference. While there is not much recoil in a 22, there might be enough to have the faster bullet exit with barrel lower. This was proven to me with a S&W 17 357. 38's would hit higher due to barrel time over 357's.

    Maybe the silencer was loosing on the theard? Do You shoot again with the silencer? Was the gun falling down. I mean if to silencer was not in the right line. My language is in the wrong way. Yours silencer made by Parker Hale?

    Count your blessings...

    Must be nice to be able to shoot quietly and politely.
