    What do you guys think will be the most accurate in this subsonic ammo?

    What are your thoughts about a testing procedure?

    I've no idea, it'll likely depend as much on the gun as anything else.

    As for testing fire 10 shots supported unsuppressed and 10 shots supported suppressed. Look for shift in POA/POI and any significant change in group size.

    Some of my guns have minimal shifts suppressed vs unsuppresed others shift so much I don't use them with the suppressor at all as its two confusing to keep straight was it zeroed without without the can. Others like my RPR I've never shot unsuppressed.

    The only ones of those I’ve shot are the Winchester, which shot nice from my marlin but mediocre from my savage. I would bet $50 that CCI standard velocity outshoots them all and is cheaper and easier to find. Eley target probably as well. They are also subsonic even in a rifle.

    I like 10 rounds suppressed and 10 rounds unsuppressed.

    My guess is the RWS will be best.

    Depends on the gun. Sometimes one gun will like a certain brand/type of ammunition while others shoot better with something different.

    As far as testing I would recommend methods that reduce human induced error. A good rest goes a long way towards that goal.

    If all you care about is accuracy suppressed, I wouldn’t waste the time/ammo testing without the can on.

    FWIW there are lots of “standard velocity” .and even some “high velocity” 22 rounds that are subsonic, that too can be gun dependent.
