Hypervelocity ammo

Just wondering...is it ok to shoot hypervelocity .22lr in the 597, such as the CCI Stinger, Aguila Super Max, etc?

I personally don't...I think I've read here that the chamber in the 597 will take stingers. Alot of guys do shoot hyper velocity without problems. I shoot 40gr Remington target ammo...I'm terrified of messing up the rifling...but my fears are totally unfounded, so don't listen to me... Shooting standard velocity ammo makes me sleep better at night...Wait for some other guys to chirp in

It will do it but I wouldn't make a habit of it. The bore is no problem; it's the hammering of the bolt cycling all the way that concerns me. Some will say no problem and others say don't. I've run a few through mine but I could feel the difference. Its your gun and I could be full of it but cautious is how I play more often now. JMO If you really need more juice consider the 22WMR.

I get better accuracy from shooting subsonic ammo rather than HV ammo, I'm with Al, if you need the extra punch, go with 22wmr.

My 597 will cycle Stingers fine, but they also group horribly. In fact, with my 597 I have noticed that the faster the ammo, the worse it groups. See my post here: https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums...d.php?t=321952

You can shoot hypervelocity in the 597 but as others mentioned the accuracy may suffer.
