This is what they say it is. This is a low noise subsonic round. The people who expect this to operate a blowback semi auto should know this wouldn't work without very light springs. This performs excellent out of revolvers, very accurate and less gas escaping from the cylinder gap. I like it for hunting small game with a revolver during big game seasons as it's sound does not travel far.

Slower Is Better!
CCI Quiet-22 22 LR 40 Grain Slower Is Better! I use segmented hollow point bullets to dispatch trapped predators usually (raccoons, opossums, skunks, coyotes etc.) that will attempt to climb my 7’ high chain link coop fence to kill my chickens. Slower segmented fragments do not damage the trap and effectively kill the predator, even if the shot is slightly off-center to the head. To dispatch a predator at point blank range in a trap, the speed of the fragmented segments should not be an overkill with damage to the trap and surrounding area if the segments exit the skull or ricochets Segmenting bullets are much better than solid bullets & preferred over hollow point bullets for a quick humane kill of predators. Now Can CCI Manufacture: Sub-Sonic Quiet-22 Segmented HP 22 LR in a 32, 27, 25 Grain or lighter weight @700 fps? It is ok if it doesn’t reload automatically; ~ keeping the breech closed maintains a quieter shot. Most people shooting varmints around their property are killing them at less than 50 feet. In this case, Slower Is Better!

I love this stuff.
If you are looking for quiet, it doesn't get any better than this. If you are looking for it to cycle your semi-auto, you will probably want to go with something a little hotter. My favorite ammo for target shooting and squirrels...

Perfect for when it has to be really quiet
I wish the muzzle energy was listed in the ammunition specs, but on to the review. I bought a box of this to shoot suppressed out of a Browning Buckmark. It doesn’t cycle the action, which assists in keeping operations quiet. I did have one round fail to fire despite a perfect primer strike. This unfortunately caused the cartridge to become stuck in the barrel, which was frustrating in the field. Otherwise, it has performed well though it lacks a certain punch on larger small game.

Worst ammo I’ve bought for my 22 precision. Never going to make the same mistake. Some are hot liars and others barely make it to the target. Stay away for this one
