    Smile cans and subsonics !

    Bought the Savage 64 semi target model and put my Gemtech can on it.

    Tried every subsonic I could find ..... none functioned it.

    Finally was told to try Winchesters, 100% perfect function and 1/2" groups @ 50 yards.

    Hope my experience saves you some money.

    Just the thing for an anti-fascist riot ! (that's a joke !)

    Yeah it's a shame 22s can be so picky. CCI subs are pretty accurate and quiet out of my 10/22 with a can. Too bad my green mountain barrel doesn't like them.

    Try SK Standard or Standard Plus. Works awesome, especially with the Neal Waltz point form dies.

    I shoot the heck out of it with a Ruger MK III and Silencerco Sparrow Suppressor. Works great until the gun gets dirty.

    45gr CCI Suppressor Ammo will also do the trick

    This won't help the Savage 64 any but for the 10/22 crowd, Volquartzen came out with the new Firefly bolt. Essentially a super light bolt group that will reliably cycle sub and standard velocity ammo, including CCI quiets. Not supposed to use hi velocity though.

    I have a Lakefield Model 64 which is the Canadian made version before Savage bought the rights to it. Its been a finicky gun since new, it prefers the higher velocity stuff. I think that it just a trait of the model 64 design.

    I really like the CCI suppressor ammo. I use it in a CZ452, but the hollow point on the 45 grain bullet really has some smack when it hits.

    It has been hard to find, but recently bought 1K online.

    I like winchester truncated cone hollow points for my subsonic ammo.
    Mostly from a bolt gun though.
