    I just received my .22 suppressor and I have never bought suppressed ammo. I am looking for something copper plated. Anyone have any idea where I can actually buy some!?

    I'm happy if I can find LRN online. I use ammoseek.com, and look for subsonic.

    Gemtec may have some copper jacketed.

    Why only copper plated?
    A .22 suppressor is going to get dirty no matter what, but it's OK cause it'll take apart for easy cleaning. Just dump the core in your brass tumbler for a couple hours.
    By going with just copper plated, you're limiting yourself by a large margin on an item that's already hard to find.

    I was kinda concerned about using lead since I shoot with the kiddos. But you may be right. If that's the case....what do I buy and where ?

    Cabelas has had various .22 in Stock for quite awhile. They do have some CCI copper there, but @ $10 / 50 rounds, it'll get expensive quick.
    The CCI quiet is the best sounding with a suppressor, but it won't cycle a semi auto being only 710 fps. It's friggin awesome out of a suppressed bolt action though.

    If you haven't gotten one yet, a Savage MKII FVSR is a perfect suppressor host.
