- Q & A
CCI was founded in 1951 based on the idea that gun owners needed better-quality components. The company was originally started with the hope of producing good quality bullets, which were quite lacking at the time, but the same metal shortages that caused that lack elsewhere stopped CCI from making them. Instead CCI turned to primer, and after some time came up with a superior formula that has since caught the attention of many other manufactures. Today CCI is actually known for their primer and many companies use it in their own ammunition.
These particular CCI rounds are made for something else the company is known for .22 rounds; .22 Short rounds, in this case. At 29 grain they’re quite lightweight, but that’s considered a standard size for this cartridge. At such a light weight these rounds are able to soar down-range at fantastic speeds, and being so light is also what helps them maintain their minimal felt recoil. These are Lead Round Nose, LRN, rounds and don’t expand on impact, although the lead deforming is sometimes confused with expansion. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 830 feet per second and muzzle energy of 44 foot-pounds. This ammunition is meant for target practice and plinking.
When you place your order for this single box of ammunition from CCI you get 100 target rounds. When it comes to .22 Short you know you’re going to burn through it quick, so you might want to consider buying more than one box. There’s not much more fun that punching holes in pop cans and water jugs with a .22 Short, unless it’s punching holes in apples, watermelons, and other fruits and gourds. This ammunition is manufactured by CCI at their longtime factory in Lewiston, Idaho, according to SAAMI specifications. CCI takes great pride in the quality and performance of their ammunition, and in this purchase you get two things they’re known for: their primer and their .22s. Order now and find out why countless shooters have trusted CCI for more than half a century.
