cheapest ammo under 1120 fps

707 10
I am considering silencing a bolt action 22 rifle. What is the absolutely cheapest ammo that is under 1120 fps muzzle velocity? Something in the 1050-1120 range would be ideal for me. I just want to figure out how much a project like this would be to feed, and I want zero sonic crack. Any suggestions? I soo wish it were doable to take a bit of powder out of wal mart federals, but I know this would be very difficult; perhaps impossible. A friend told me that our wal mart carries some sort of remington standard velocity for around 5 bucks for the 100, but I am wondering if these aren't in the 1150 fps range or so. Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Cheers!

Remington subsonic is the easiest to find and fairly accurate as well. $2ish a box. any decent target ammo is gonna be subsonic too. Aguila and the like would also be cheap.

my brain is probably having a bout of the diabeetus, but what is SK ?

I've read that the remington subsonic can be inconsistent and occasionally go supersonic, is this true? I was going to order some aguila subsonic 38g from midway, but the shipping is so killer. I really hope I can find something locally, either at dicks, wal mart, or a gun store :D The main goal is to find the cheapest possible, so I can plink with armadillos, and I may as well stock up on ammo now before prices continue to climb.

If you have a Dick's, look for the Federal 714. Then do a search for the Dick's coaches coupon and get it cheap.

1080 sounds great!! I just printed up a coach's coupon. Its for my gun club that I coach *cough* :rolleyes:
I 'coach' a target team (my 5 daughters), and just picked up my 9th&10th brick of the 714 from local Dicks. I'm slowly 'clearing their shelf' as funds allow, cause $15/brick 500 is spectacular price these days for fairly accurate subsonic ammo . . . . .:D
