- Q & A
This round’s 36 grain bullet is loaded to a muzzle velocity of 1,280 fps. It’s going to treat you to a plenty flat trajectory, but not before it generates enough chamber pressure to cycle any semi-auto handgun or long gun.
You wouldn’t waste a CPHP bullet if you’re just shooting paper – its copper-plating is still going to promote cleaner performance by preventing some of its lead core from contacting the barrel. But because it is also outfitted with a nose cavity, the CPHP is capable of delivering the terminal expansion you want for hunting small game!
Browning’s ammo is loaded in Illinois with high-quality brass cases, responsive rimfire primers and clean-burning propellant. Order four boxes for the 1,600-round case!

- Why aren’t 22 LR “bullets” (i.e. lead projectile part) smooth like 22 mags, 9 mm? Why do they have ridges/grooves that cause auto loader failure? Thank you. Posted On: 3/14/2022 By: Francis Maslowski
- Thanks for reaching out Francis! The 22 LR design requires a heeled bullet – i.e. a bullet which is the same diameter as its case. The 22 LR bullet actually has a narrow heel which you can't see because it is seated inside the case. The cylinder in the center of the 22 LR bullet's mass has to protrude outward in order to form an efficient seal with the bore, which is the roughness I believe you're describing. It's also impractical to jacket 22 LR bullets in solid copper like you could with a 22 Mag or 9mm. At best a 22 LR bullet can be copper-plated, but even that's not going to be as smooth as a thin sheet of solid metal.
