I have a fairly new 22/45 LITE and i remember hearing someone say something about "do not use cci stingers" in the LITE. True or false?
Good job gmsoapy, I stand corrected. I thought stingers were just high velocity. But the manual should be more specific and state that Hyper Velocity is restricted. Not just leave it as other. Damn I keep learning something new everyday.This is what I got from Ruger on the use of stingers

Comment / question:
The use of CCI stingers in SR22's and MKIII target pistols. Are they safe to use in these guns and is the use of these recommended by Ruger for ocassional use
Great products. The craftmanship on my SR1911 is first class. Beats my kimber.
You can use the CCI Stingers in your SR22 pistol.
Do Not use CCI Stingers in your Mark III pistol. The MKIII pistol is chambered only for the .22 caliber Long Rifle cartridge, standard velocity or high velocity, manufactured to U.S. Industry Standards. CCI Stingers are hyper-velocity, over 1300 fps.

I just checked Rugers web site and the manual for the lite is the same as all other MK's. So I believe the above applies to your lite.
Hi Seabee.Good job gmsoapy, I stand corrected. I thought stingers were just high velocity. But the manual should be more specific and state that Hyper Velocity is restricted. Not just leave it as other. Damn I keep learning something new everyday.
