CCI is known for their rimfire, and when it comes to their .22LR Mini-Mag, it is truly a standard for excellence in the firearms industry. The company was actually founded by Richard Speer, whose brother Vernon founded Speer Bullets. He founded CCI in the 1950’s, and today it is a subsidiary of ATK, a massive company known for its production not only of ammunition but also of missile defense systems and precision and strike weapons. CCI is such a golden standard for ammunition that there are manufacturers who take care to use their primers in the production of their own rounds. And these .22LR Mini-Mag rounds are a stellar example of the standards CCI believes in.
These are CPRN, or copper-plated round nose, which are fairly common in small caliber ammunition. Many round-nose rounds are made of lead, but those rounds tend to cause fouling issues in the barrel of firearms; using copper gets rid of the lead-fouling problem. CPRN rounds are often used for very small game like squirrels and some birds and one benefit of these rounds is the ability to use them in areas where lead rounds are not allowed. Farmers also use them to be rid of varmints gophers and foxes.
This particular ammunition is 40 grain, which is at the middle of the spectrum for .22LR but still quite lightweight. It has a muzzle velocity of 1,235 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 135 foot-pounds. One of the great things about .22LR is how enjoyable it is to shoot, and it’s easy to go through a lot of rounds in a short period of time. It’s also wonderful for teaching new shooters, which can also take a large number of rounds. That’s why the 5,000-round quantity of this box is so nice, because it allows you to spend the time you really want shooting. Of course, it isn’t just for high-volume shooters; it’s good to stash, too. Order now.
