The .22LR is the child of the Flobert BB Cap of 1845 and the .22 Smith and Wesson cartridge of 1857. It was designed by an American firearms manufacturer, J. Stevens Arms and Tool Company, in 1887, and it has been a firearms fan favorite for decades. Rifles such as those made by Marlin and Winchester have only served to increase the cartridge’s popularity; children being taught safety and skill excel through their use and adults enjoy them for myriad reasons. Frankly, they’re flat-out fun. They have incredibly low recoil, hardly make any noise at all, and are very affordable. In addition, they can be used not only for plinking but also for varmint control.
And because these particular rounds are made by CCI, they’re nearly as well-loved as the cartridge itself – well, not quite. But pretty close! The CCI Mini-Mag is popular for many reasons, including because they’re CPRN – copper round nose. The copper keeps your gun cleaner; common lead round nose .22LR can cause significant fouling, and who wants to be forced to clean their gun more often? By using CPRN rounds, your gun’s barrel stays cleaner, longer. And considering how often .22LR fans put a high volume of rounds through their guns, staying cleaner longer is a pretty big pro.
CCI makes its ammunition in America at their Lewiston, Idaho, plant. These rounds are 40 grain, so they’re a moderate weight for this caliber. But they still have the amazing speed you expect from this cartridge with a muzzle velocity of 1,235 feet per second. They also have a muzzle energy of 135 foot-pounds. With 100 rounds in this box, you can put a few rounds down-range and enjoy a little quality time with your .22LR-chambered firearm. Plenty of .22 aficionados love these CCI Mini-Mags, and if you’ve never tried them, it’s past time you did.
