It's been a long time since I read much about small game hunting, but lately there seems to be a big preference for subsonic ammo in rimfire for squirrel, even when not running a suppressor. Other than the quieter report, what's the real advantage using it? Many times I've shot 2-3 squirrels out of the same hickory within a few minutes with the louder stuff, and it didn't seem to bother them too bad as long as I stayed put.. I guess for hunting I always thought that the standard and high velocity ammo shot "flatter". Definitely not knocking the use of it, but just wondering what I may be missing out on. I will say that the Eley and Aguila subsonic is very accurate in my rifles.
