Sorry, but I'm still not impressed. I don't see anything that is different from the results using RWS sub-sonic HP in a 3" barrel and it's much quieter than any other ammo in the 1000FPS+ category I've tried. Plinkster even commented on the loudness factor of this new ammo.

Glad to see that these posts from Plinker have been moved, but a move to Siberia would have been a better choice IMHO. If folks want to look at his videos, they can go on You Tube and watch 'em there. Posting them here, is like forcing a 2-year old to eat pureed "squash".
Thanks for the move. :D

I got in my Federal Punch ammo last week. I sure can tell it's more potent than my regular .22s and about the same as Velocitors. Now I need a 2 inch barrel revo to shoot them out of.

If its not a state secret, where in the world did you get them. I have been looking around with zero success. Course, maybe my 3" LCRX is too long for them.

Most of the members here may already know that CCI and Federal are shipping ammunition directly from their web-sites, and with free shipping if the order meets the requirement:

I also received and have chronographed, some of the Federal Punch defense .22 rimfire ammunition. This ammunition has a 29 grain silver washed bullet with a box velocity that claims 1080 FPS:

Running this ammunition over my Oehler 35 P chronograph using three of my .22 rimfire rifles with barrel lengths of 22 to 27 inches in length, I get recorded velocities up to 600 FPS higher than what is printed on their web-site:

Sorry I'm so late responding. I got them direct from Federal.
