I emailed Aguila 2 weeks ago... no response. It's still listed on their website but has not shown up anywhere like the rest of their line.

Aguila is in the process of changing its packaging. The ammo that's been listed in its old package is being discontinued.
That's what it looks like to me. Kirby

I'm not aware of any ammo that would directly compare to Super Colibri. Let's hope it still is being manufactured.

Unfortunately, that's the Colibri, not the Super Colibri. Colibri is lots of places. No sign of the Super.

CB Longs might be the next closest. 32 ft lbs of energy vs 11. 29 grs/710fps vs 20gr 590fps.
Of course good luck finding those too.

Super colibri alternative?

Or CCI Quiets fly at 710 fps with a 40 grain bullet.

Depending on the intended use, the extra ft lbs of energy might not be desirable.
Otherwise, I like Quiets a lot and use them in hunting.

Just a little info, we. Go to my wifes parent place who live in the country. But there are a ton of camps around with kids and quads. I wanted something to shoot up there and not be an annoyance. So I use my henry mares leg with super colibris and my children and I can shoot and not make a lot of noise. There were some folks partying a few camps away shooting a 9mm and it was loud and worried some people. Just so you guys know my intended purpose. I do shoot regular .22 lr and .22 shorts but I like to limit it up there. I would get a suppressor but its too much paper work for me. Thanks.

CCI Quiets out of my Mossberg 44US-c (26" barrel) run 92db. CCI CB Shorts run 93db. A suppressed Ruger American with CCI SV ran 83db.

So... I'd go Quiets... or consider a tax stamp.
