What Happened to Remington Subsonic .22lr?



Log in to see fewer ads
I can't find this stuff anywhere.

I have an old brick of this stuff and would like to get more.
It shoots to the same poi as cci sv (my usual plinking round) at 50yds and suppresses well (and shoots very tight groups from a can).

Are you guys finding this in stock?

TIA

I think they discontinued it for being too clean and reliable.

I have 100 rounds of Remington Subsonic left. Probably just going to save it like a collecters item.

The last of the Remington Subsonic I was able to get was early on in the run after Sandy Hook. My dealer had it on the shelf and never changed the price during the panic. I still have a bit more than three bricks left.

I use it mostly in my integrally suppressed Ruger Mark II.

During the great squeeze or maybe before I sold 2 bricks and burned up the rest because I read it was no good.

I still have a box of Rem Subsonics that my old CZ 452 shot OK with, but I had much better options. That was years ago and I haven't seen them since.

Now that you mention it there are several Rem. loads that I don't think they are making anymore. Yellow-jacket comes to mind right away. Haven't seen them anywhere, even on search sites like AmmoSeek.com I read in the American Rifleman a couple of months back Rem came very close to going belly up and were in the process of getting back on their feet (hopefully). My understanding is that many .22lr lines are loss leaders meaning they loose money on each round they produce and it was the cheaper rounds that fell into this category. It wouldn't surprise me if they just quit making these, especially if they are hard up for money. Certainly what makes the most money is what the machines are going to be switched over to making as long as the demand exists. Why would they make cheaper ammo if they can make and sell the more expensive stuff? They certainly are not going to build a new rimfire factory just to flesh out the lines with stuff they either lost money on or made very little.

About the time I got my new Contender G2 rifle sorted out and determined that the Rem. SV hollow points were the best choice for hunting they quickly disappeard. I used up my remaining stock shooting prairie dogs out to 130 yards and they preformed great. Switched to Winchester Power Points which were a match for the Rem's but they also disappeared before I could get a good stock. Switched to CCI SV, bought a Waltz die, discovered there was almost no difference between the CCI and Aquila SV so now I think I have a good stock and should be able to get more. Did I say I hate testing, would rather be just shooting and hunting. If it won't shoot 1/2" groups at 50 yards I don't want it.

Plenty of CCI out there but it's pricey.

Their SV is now called Target: https://www.remington.com/ammunition/rimfire/22-target

And I just noticed that Gander Mountain dropped the price of CCI SV to $3.99/50. Not a great price but not bad.

Don't know but it stinks. Rem subs and their yellowjackets were two of my favorite Remington loads. Had the yellowjackets on auto-alert from Midway and was eventually notified they were discontinued. Most unfortunate as my Beretta 21A (Bobcat) preferred them over all else.
