Ultra lux and shorts.

Has anyone tried 22 shorts in the ultra lux? How about that Aguilia Colibri ammo. Looking for something really quiet but don't want to stick a bullet in my super fine shooting Ultra Lux barrel.

I've never shot either of those through my SE but I have shot both CB Longs and CCI "Quiet 22" ammo from mine with both impressive (lack of noise) and non-impressive (lack of accuracy) results.

The UL is pretty darn quiet with PMC Moderators or Winchester SSHP's, I've not tried any others, my super quiet yard gun is a old Remington model 12 pump and a magazine full of Super Colibri's.

Super Colobri will get stuck in the barrel. I shot some in my LUX. 10% never made it out of the tube. It made for an interesting time...cleaning rod down the bore every other magazine. CB Longs did much better in that respect (0 stuck), but groups were 2" at 25 yards. My Lux can do high teens and low .2's when I am on my game at that distance. YMMV

For the CZ Ultralux 28 1/2" barrel . . .

. . . the barrel is a little long for ultra low velocity ammunition - caution is definitely advised! I've never risked it.

The Colibri is hit or miss in accuracy with various rifle, just like any other rimfire round. Some love it, others - not so much. So your mileage will vary.

The Super Colibri's would be a no-no in the UL, I've not had problems with anything else but others haven't been as fortunate, the little Model 12 shoots them very accurately.

I found the standard velocity and sk sub hp 40 gr very low noise and accurate. No need to risk a stuck bullet. Imo

A stuck lead bullet is no big deal to push out if you are prepared for it and cautious in your shooting. A good rod and a blunt, flat tipped jag work well . Pistol shooters call that bullet sticking situation a "squib" load and most, as in Bullseye shooting, keep a "squib rod" in their kit. Be aware, not afraid. Those AQs might shoot very nicely for you with little trouble. Wakin

The CCI Quiets are almost noisless in my UL, and they make it out the barrel. The accuracy isn't bad either. The Aguilla Sniper SubSonic works well also, almost noisless. Havn't had any of these two squib. I don't think I'd try the super Colibri's, what would be the benefit? Super Colibri's are not recomended in barrels longer than 16" anyway.

I try almost any ammo. I have shot the super colibri in my ultra lux. not one of them stuck or even came out slow. HOWEVER, the accuracy of this round in this ultra lux was pretty bad. so, don't bother.

as said just before, the cci quiets out of the ultra lux are almost silent and they pack a bit of punch for a low velocity round. while they are quiet and seem pretty tame, they are not to be fooled with. someone should do a ballistic test with them, i figure they would penetrate pretty far.

Thanks guys. I think I'll try some of the "Quiets" or subsonic loads.

I've bulged a barrel (not a cz) shooting cci cb's. I didn't realize that one had not come out until I had put another round behind it.

Hey guys, new 455 Lux owner. Took it out to my club range and fired some different types of ammo including the CCI CB Longs which, at 25 yrds, wasn't bad. I get a lot more inconsistent shots using this ammo out of my Marlin 122. Granted it is 50 years older. My question is for the guys that have shot the LR Quiets and the CB Longs. Any differences such as noise, accuracy, velocity?

CCI Quiet 22 ammo is exceptionally quiet in the Ultra Lux. About 700 fps and 40 gr bullet, decent precision at 25 yards.

Thanks Timber. Velocity about the same then; just a matter of noise.
