    I hadn't thought about the standard velocity ammo. I think I have some, I'll give that a try this afternoon.

    Seems like Academy always has the standard velocity stuff in stock since it won't cycle most auto loaders, it doesn't sell as well. Fine by me, just want to punch holes in paper with this one.

    I never tried standard velocity until the shortage; I've come to prefer it in my bolt actions and SA revolver. It shoots better out to 100yds in my Rem 581 than HiVel. And squirrels, turtles, and rabbits can't tell the difference.

    .22 Ammo?
    Try this on for size:221 Askins V1 A NC Model (1).pdf

    This is based upon contemporary dimensional information from 1935 abou tthe two cartridges drawn.
    I believe both were loaded with .224 diameter Bullets.
    I believe both used Small Pistol Boxer Primers.

    The longer one is said to have developed 760fps MV from a 2" barrel.

    The shorter one helped the developer to win a National championship in 1937. (used in a converted Colt Woodsman semi-auto Pistol.)

    Best Regards,
