Has anyone tried the Sub-sonic, 1000fps ammo from Gemtech in their TS uppers?

Isn't that too fast to be sub-sonic?

My mini-mag stuff says 710fps? (haven't tried it yet)

The Remington Thunderbolt Sub-Sonic runs well

That is some slow mini-mag. It should be in the 1300-1400fps range. Generally, stuff in the neighborhood of and just under 1000fps is considered subsonic.

Sorry.. it's CCI.. 29 grain.. 710fps - and just realized it's 22 Long, not 22 Long Rilfe

None of the others stated on the box, I just 'assumed' they were all in that range :blush:

On the CCI site.. the 22LR Quiet is the same speed

The speed of sound is 1125 FPS this changes according to elevation and air density. Generally anything that is 1080 fps or less is subsonic just to give yourself a bit of wiggle room. Check velocity out of your gun because an inch of barrel once you are under about 15"s makes a huge difference
