.22 Short rounds should never be confused with .22 LR (Long Rifle). The .22 Short is, as it sounds, shorter, and first hit the market in 1857. It was originally designed by Smith and Wesson for self-defense purposes and remains popular today for plinking and target practice. Up until 2004 it was used in the Olympics for the 25m rapid-fire pistol event; .22 Shorts are known for being quite accurate rounds and, as with all .22 rounds, produce almost no recoil and a nearly silent report. If you own a gun chambered in .22 Short you know how much fun they are to shoot, and you’re probably in need of some well-made rounds such as these from CCI.
CCI manufactures these rounds for your .22 Short-chambered firearm. Each round weighs in at 27 grain which is a bit lightweight even for this round; the standard weight range for the .22 Short falls between 29 grain and 30 grain, although lighter loads have become more common. Being so light means these rounds will fly down-range at fantastic speeds with the minimal felt recoil you expect from your gun. These are Copper-Plated Hollow Point, CPHP, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. As they expand they decelerate and penetrate, creating a wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1105 feet per second and muzzle energy of 73 foot-pounds. These can be used for small pests such as squirrels and target practice.
When you order this box of ammunition from CCI you get 100 CPHP rounds. With 100 rounds you can have a pretty great day with your .22 Short. Because these are CP rounds they fire more cleanly than other types of rounds and, in fact, if you’ve been shooting a lot of lead-nosed rounds through your gun these CP rounds will help clean things up. CCI was founded in 1951 by Richard Speer, a Boeing machinist who decided to enter the ammunition world after seeing his brother Vernon succeed. CCI produces ammunition at their longtime factory in Lewiston, Idaho, right near the Snake River. Order now and spend some trigger time with your .22 Short, because little guns have big appetites, too.
