Subsonic Ammo

Postby wisdumb16 » Mon Apr 13, 2015 10:31 pm

A friend of mine gave me a box of 147g JHP Winchester Super X DP subsonic ammo to try out in one of my other pistols. Any thoughts on running it through my CPX-2?

I wouldn't worry about ammo being subsonic. Lots of ammo fired from short barrel handguns winds up being subsonic. If the muzzle velocity is less than about 1116.4 fps (at sea level) it's less than the speed of sound and is subsonic.

Shoot it and enjoy. 8)

Thanks for the feedback. I'm planning on going to the range this weekend so I will report back. Thanks again.

I think the big question is will it have enough power to cycle the action.

Actually to me it has less snap than 115 gr. ammo for the extra weight, kinda like pushed out of the barrel.
