I shoot the CCI Standard Velocity round which are advertised at 1,070 fps. These are subsonic and most quiet through a Kestrel suppressor. I have filed the noses flat, but this does not seem to be necessary for any game I've taken with them.

I've had great results in my 22 pistols using Eley subsonic HP's. Accuracy is the best I've tried and they kill well. I recently purchased a few boxes of the Eley HV HP's but have not tried them yet. I have similar rimfire pistols you listed:
S&W 17 K-22 w/ 8 3/8"
Ruger MKII 5.5" - Clark custom conversion

Standard velocity Wolf match Target and Match Extra, run through the Neil Waltz die using the EMF flat point stem, expands the bullet for tighter fit, leaves the nose flat with the dimple like Eley TenX, and tightens the grip on the crimped bullet in the case.

Oh ya and in the MKII it shoots one hole groups under 3/8" at 25 yards with either the target or more expensive Extra, and knocks the squirrel free of the tree without tearing up the meat.
