    22 super colibri. Where is it available?

    I bought enough of this 15 years ago when it was $15 a brick. I am now getting low. Just wondering who has the best price on this now. Thanks

    I used to swear by these for backyard vermin. Still have 5 or 6 boxes left from my last brick. Found these Winchester 22 CB Long Match and was amazed at the accuracy and how quiet they are. Just about as quiet as the super colibri, but bigger bullet and longer range. Bad thing is, I can’t find these anymore.

    Looks like maybe another run on .22 L.R. ammo is underway. I checked both Midway and Sportsman's Guide, and most .22 ammo is "out of stock". In the case of Aguila it says "no backorder".

    You'll go into sticker shock when you find some it's about 60.00 a brick now. I think it was graf's or target sports had some. I also use to shoot a lot of them back in the day but not at the new price.

    You should have kept quiet, they are sold out now.

    One person may have bought them all.I hope smkummer got some if he wanted to.When I order from Bud's ,or most places I keep adding to my order till the shipping will increase to a higher rate.Bud's is one of the few places left that does not tax orders,and that helps to counter shipping cost.

    the super colibri is a joke. CCI is far superior, and far more consistent.

    That Winchester was supposedly discontinued 3 years ago. Still shows up on the Winchester website, but no one can get it.

    I didn’t get any. I only use it for my revolvers in my back yard, I have less than a brick left, maybe I can wait until it comes down, just like oil prices. I love and use the CCI quiet ( of which I have a lot) in my long guns. Problem is, it’s not so quiet in my revolvers. I am living in a rural subdivision. Thanks everyone.

    I'm using CCI CB Long instead nowadays. Academy Sports has it. I've never had any problems with Colibri or Super Colibris at all. Other than finding them.

    There is NO substitute for Colibri and Super Colibri. The big thing for me is low noise and controlled FPS. They teach you to tread those pointed little 20 grainers in with surgical precision and once you master this they kill beyond belief. I shoot about 500 a month for animal control and always have to chuckle to myself when I read the posts saying they are harmless. I have a Lyman 35893 and a 429303. I like the 429303 the better of the two . I have a 26" 44 mag barrel with the 429303 in 44 special cases to decrease the dead air space. Its pretty quiet at about 550-600 fps. The bad part its more dangerous than the Colibri as that big chunk of lead bounces around.
