CCI says this stuff has a muzzle velocity of 835 fps. The bullet weight is 45 grains, so it's their heaviest .22 LR offering.

Is there anything special about this ammo, or is it just subsonic with...

Nice looking, but overpriced. I checked the Keystone web site. It's a single shot. That's a lot of money for a single-shot .22. I was thinking that I'd be interested when they bring out the Mauser 98...

I know Heritage says their revolvers are made in the U.S., but I have to admit that I don't believe them. If they were really made in the U.S. they wouldn't need that ugly, dopey safety. However,...
