    Remington Low Noise CBee 33 Grain Hollow Points

    I did a mini jug test on the low noise CBee 33 gr HP. Amazingly the one round that I recovered expanded perfectly! I shot 3 rounds from my Winchester 9422 with a 20" barrel from 10 feet. 2 rounds exited the 3rd jug and I didn't find them. Possibly because they didn't expand. One of them dented the 4th jug but didn't penetrate. The recovered round was in the 2nd jug and it was a beauty.

    I had my wife stand back about 25 feet for the "sound" check and she said it was like a pellet gun .... I think it is more like a weak firecracker. Remington says 740 fps - 40 lb-ft at muzzle, 687 fps - 35 lb-ft at 50 yards. -2.7" drop at 50 yds with 25 yd sight in. They don't mention the test barrel length.

    I shot some at a target from only 10 - 12 yards today and I was right on target. The scope was previously sighted in at 25 yds with Aguilla 40 gr round nose.

    Overall I'm pretty pleased.

    That's what I thought. I was pretty amazed. I didn't think I would get any expansion at all.

    I just wish that I could have found the first 2 shots ..... they penetrated more so I am guessing they might not have expanded. This one that expanded and landed in the 2nd jug is about perfect for a squirell or skunk.

    Sorry no video like Flyman .... but it was dark out and I don't have Fly's Ninja editing skilz!

    Re: Remington Low Noise CBee 33 Grain Hollow Points

    This .22 ammo sound quite interesting. However, I wonder if it is sufficiently powerful to cycle our Bersa/FireStorm .22's? As we all know here on this forum, these pistols require a cartridge with a little kick to them. CCI high velocity ammo is usually recommended. Has anyone tried out this CBee ammo in a Bersa .22? If so, please submit a range report. I have my doubts that any low noise .22 cartridge would be able to cycle the Bersa's.

    I could try them but my bet is they won't cycle because of the power and maybe even the shape of the bullet will make it hard to feed. I didn't get them to shoot in my autos. If I wanted a low noise round in my BT22 I would hold my thumb on the slide when firing to keep it from cycling and loosing gases out the ejector port .... then I would hand cycle. The pistol would be a manual operation but quieter. With Michigan's restrictive laws we can't own silencers.

    Could you do that without risking damage to your thumb?
    I'm no expert; I'm just, well...opinionated!

    Who needs a thumb?


    Probably best not to use the thumb technique with a Bersa. Works good on Ruger Mark's - even with full power loads.

    Perfect Ammo Test Report, Mr. Pondy

    We, Bersa Chat Members, appreciate the time plus effort involved doing this type of range ballistics. And so glad no one was harmed and safe next door Nice expansion for 40 grain. I haven't seen this ammo before, is it new or old school?

    I like too know if & when you might decided to try it out on your older and/or newer B.T. 22

    PM me once you got a off day, NCFly Video Productions will arrive on the spot to film the action

    Thanks for the post & results!

    Fly, let me know when you are coming and I'll take a day off for filming! Maybe even an extra day for boating on Lake Michigan!

    I'm hoping to test it on a skunk. I'll send you the body for autospy - just PM your mailing address...... and it better not be on Battle Road!

    Sure thing! I look forward to it.

    Send it USPS Priority Mail with a tracking number to:

    1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
    Washington, DC 20500
    Our forefathers would be shooting by now.

    A dead skunk in the mail?

    Homeland Security would be involved...

    Nah, they wouldn't even notice the good clean smell of a dead skunk compared to the stink in the neighborhood. Sigh.

    For the record, I once held the bolt handle shut on my 10/22. It was very easy, you could literally do it with one finger.

    Nope it can't. I had an opossum in the cage this morning and I tried it out in the BT22-6. One of our Maltese faced down the opossum a few nights ago so I set up the Have a Heart trap. The brass won't eject so you need to rack the slide after each shot. It would have been better if I kept my thumb on the slide to hold it inplace but it worked just fine. 2 head shots and 15 seconds for the booger to stay down.

    I put a 3rd round in for good measure after he stopped moving but he was dead. One round penetrated and was stuck in the surface of a 1/2" plywood board I put as a backstop. I think these CB's would do pretty good from a lever or bolt rifle on this size animal. Lots of horror stories about how hard it is to kill a possum...... but the close range head shots did fine with the CB's. Sound level was about the same as a ballon popping.

    No this ammo has been around a long time. I used to use it back when I was a teen. I would shoot it out of a Winchester model 190. You had to rack the slide by hand.
