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.

Thanks again for the replies. I bought a Waltz die to try, Have shot several with the segmented SS HP from CCi in my Tac Sol rifle and really like it. I shot my first handgun squirrel yesterday with my G2 in 17M2, 10" MGM barrel with a YHM Stinger on it.

My favorite type of hunting! I use Winchester Power Points in S&W Mod. 17 and 34. I use CCI Sub-Sonic Lead HP in my .22 Rifles with a can. I have also use CCI Segmented Sub-Sonics in a Browning Buckmark and S&W Mod.41 with a suppressor. I always try to place the shots behind the shoulder. The CCI Subs and W-W Powerpoints have always been great loads for squirrels. I really like the .17M2, but it is not as good overall as the .22LR in my experiance.
