This ammo is quiet enough that hearing protection is not required according to the manufacturer. This product is ideal for taking care of troublesome varmints in areas where it is legal to shoot but noise is an issue.
This ammunition is also a great way to introduce youth shooters to the sport. When teaching a youngster to shoot for the first time it's nice for the youth student to be able to hear directions clearly and this ammo being 1/4 of the perceived noise makes for a great training tool. Note that this ammo while safe to shoot in semi-auto 22 LR's will usually not generate enough recoil to cycle the bolt so manual cycling will most likely be required. This is ideally suited for single shot type 22 LR's.
This ammunition is new production and non-corrosive.
