I also think there was a misunderstanding. I think they are refering to hyper velocity ammo. I know that Ruger says not to shoot hyper velocity in their Mark pistols. It probably varies depending on the manufacturer and the firearm.
BY GOLLY, this would be news to me. NONE of my STURM,RUGER&COMPANY MANUALS make any mention of such things.
The Ruger manual does not specifically state not to shoot hyper velocity ammo. It does however say to only shoot long rifle standard, or high velocity
as stated below. Hyper velocity ammo is neither standard, or high velocity.
The RUGER® MARK III pistol is chambered only for the .22 caliber Long
Rifle cartridge, standard velocity or high velocity
, manufactured to U.S. Industry Standards. Do not attempt to load .22 Long, .22 Short, or any other type .22 caliber cartridge
into the magazine or in the chamber of the pistol".
If you call Ruger, and ask them, they will tell you not to shoot hyper in a Mark series pistol. I don't see where it would hurt a single six. You are free to shoot whatever you like, I was just trying to help someone who may care about their pistol and not want to damage it.
