ELEY subsonic hollow overview

ELEY subsonic hollow is a hunting cartridge with target shooting accuracy and reduced velocity, offering a quieter muzzle report compared to other .22LR hunting rounds.

With its innovative hollow nosed profile, the ELEY subsonic hollow projectile delivers unequalled expansion characteristics, resulting in short penetration with outstanding stopping power; essential features for vermin control. The non-greasy lubricant provides smooth operation in semi-automatic rifles and improves functioning in all weather conditions.

Increasingly popular with sporting shooters and professional pest controllers, ELEY subsonic hollow is regarded as one of the quietest and most accurate subsonic rounds on the market.
