Gemtech Silencer Subsonic 22LR 42Gr Round Nose 50/Box
After years of recommending various brands and types of ammunition, Gemtech decided to do things right and create their own optimized round for suppressor usage. Putting together a heavier bullet, a cleaner powder, a premium lube on the lead round nose projectile gave consistent velocities and harder hitting performance at subsonic, suppressor-friendly speed. The 42 grain lead round nose bullet is heavier than traditionally available rounds, but isn't so heavy as to cause instability. While "harder hitting" and ."22lr" aren't usually associated together, steel silhouette shooters will appreciate the difference between a knockdown and a wobbling target that stays up! A designed velocity of 1020 feet per second ensures the heavier projectile remains subsonic speed in most all firearms without resorting to anemic velocities. Our testing indicates that the ballistic coefficient for the 42gr GEMTECH bullet is approximately .125.
Sold in 50 round boxes, 500 round bricks, or 5,000 round cases, the GEMTECH SILENCER SUBSONIC .22lr ammunition is sub-packaged in 50 rd tray boxes to keep bullet noses from any accuracy-robbing damage during transit.
