- Q & A
This round’s bullet is a copper-plated segmented hollow point. It doesn’t actually expand after striking its target. Instead the SHP breaks apart into three separate pieces, each of which creates its own individual wound channel. A small game critter will hate it when there are three wound channels inside its body, because that means it will die extremely quickly.
CCI’s reliable rimfire primers and high-quality little brass cases complete the whole package. But this ammo comes with two important warnings. First off, its chamber pressure is way too weak to cycle a semi-automatic. You can still fire it in a semi-automatic, but you’ll have to cycle it manually. Secondly, under no circumstances should you ever fire this ammo in a rifle with a barrel that is longer than 24”, as the bullet may fail to exit the barrel. One look at the photos that come up when you Google “squib load” will show you why that’s a bad thing.
