The Silent .22 Round That’s Quieter Than A BB Gun

Image source: Cody Assmann

One of the most popular topics within the survival and prepping community is firearms, and it seems there are as many opinions as there are people.

Although there is a great deal of disagreement on which guns and what type of ammo you should stockpile, there are a few calibers that frequently enter most conversations. Two that come to mind are the .22 rifle and the 12-gauge shotgun.

Both guns have proven their usefulness in a variety of situations and can be effective hunting and defense tools. Survival aside, these guns consistently rank on lists of the most popular guns in America, year in and year out. If you happen to own either a .22 or a 12 gauge, one company, Aguila, is producing some ammunition you might want to explore.

Aguila Ammunition has been churning out ammunition to suit the needs of hunters, law enforcement, sport shooters, and the military since 1961. Recently I was able to get my hands on a few of the specialty cartridges they produce. Those rounds were the .22 Colibri and the 12-gauge Minishell slug.

What caught my eye with the .22 Colibri was the advertised silence of the cartridge.

  • Great ammo site search engine.

    • Yes your right 137 different retailers.. Wonder what thier shipping OS laws would be?

  • I bought 500 rounds of those 22′s. The shells are shorter than standard 22lr so they arent really made for clips or magazines. Better suited for single shot rifles or pistols. They also leave a weird residue in the chambers which is nothing if you clean them regularly. Other than that it is a nice varmit round and are really silent. :wink:

  • A good SG is always reliable

  • Gun jamming?? No thank you! And what about a .22 short?

  • “.22 Colibri is about as loud as a BB gun”

    Flat out untrue. Yes, they are quieter than a standard 22 LR or short, but not nearly as quiet as a BB gun… get real. I have shot many, many of these rounds. My suppressed 22 shooting LRs are still quieter than shooting these unsuppressed. Now when you put these rounds in a suppressed 22, ya, then they are about the same as a BB gun.

  • I have a .22 air rifle that is super quiet too. And the ammo is only like 8 bucks for 1500 pellets…
