.22 Caliber Conversion on P229 Elite

Anyone used this? What does it mean when it says that "high performance" .22 caliber rounds work best? What qualifies as "high performance"? Is it based on fps rating?

I think they mean something like CCI Mini Mags and not the 550 bulk packs.

Run a 2-3 hundred rounds of good CCI ammo to break it in.Once broken in it will eat bulk ammo up just fine.Just get the bulk stuff with at least 1240-1280 fps and you should have no problem.I just used about 400 rounds of bulk from wal-mart can't recall the brand but I think it was remington 1280 fps and had no problems other than 1 ftf but it fired on the second da pull on my 226.

When I purchased my Sig 22 conversion for my 220, CCI Mini Mag ammo was recommended in my owners info and I also received a discount coupon for CCI mini mag ammo. High velocity ammo, such as CCI, cycles 100% in my conversion unit. The lower standard velocity bulk ammo will not cycle the slide after each round fired. As previousy stated the wal mart 550 bulk ammo is ok, but frequent failure to cycle does happen with this ammo in my gun.

My 220 & 22 conversion unit makes every range trip with me---one of the best purchases I have ever made. Shoot safely and often.

No discount coupons showed up in my purchase. Just a receipt with a high number on it. :-(
