Tried out some of the new CCI 22 ammo the other day, it was all that was advertised! Through a bolt action it was quieter than a pellet gun, it was like shooting with a silencer. Out of a revolver it was a little louder but still not bad at all. Would be very good for pest control where noise is a factor. Have seen it priced from $2.89-$3.79 for a 50 round box around here.
