CCI was founded in 1951 by Richard Speer, a Boeing machinist who watched his brother Vernon (Speer ammunition founder) succeed in the world of ammunition and decided to get into it himself. And so, in a room within the Speer plant, Richard set out to create rifle cartridges. It became quickly clear there was a shortage of raw materials in the post-World War II era, though, and he realized he needed an innovative new process. In the end, he decided to create a new primer; there wasn’t really anything on the market for reloaders, and he wanted to fill that gap. Richard’s non-mercuric, non-corrosive formula quickly gained popularity among reloaders, and today CCI is known for its superior primers. They’re also known for something else, though: .22LR.
CCI’s .22LR has always been in high demand due to its excellent quality and fantastic performance. At 36 grain these are within the standard weight range for the cartridge, which means they’re still pretty lightweight and capable of great speed. These are CPHP rounds, so they expand somewhat on impact and begin to decelerate; their copper plating helps keep your gun cleaner and is also non-corrosive, so there’s less friction in your gun’s barrel. It’s good ammunition for target practice and plinking and there are also many who swear by it for hunting critters like squirrels and gophers and varmints such as foxes. This ammunition flies down-range with a muzzle velocity of 1260 feet per second and delivers a muzzle energy of 127 foot-pounds.
There are 2000 rounds in this box of ammo, and if you think that’s plenty, you’ll soon learn differently. Firing .22LR is massively addictive; it’s fun, so much fun it’s easy to lose track of how many rounds you’ve burned through. It’s also versatile, from plinking to targets to varmint control to teaching new shooters; that’s quite a few ammunition-eating activities right there. All of CCI’s ammunition is manufactured at their long-time plant in Lewiston, Idaho, right by the banks of the Snake River. CCI’s .22LR is popular for good reason, so when you see it, you buy it.
