The .22LR has been around since 1887, and if anything it’s more popular today than it was when it first hit the market. In fact, so much .22LR is sold it’s considered the most popular round there is, which is really quite understandable when you consider its versatility and how enjoyable it is to shoot. The .22LR has a great reputation as a learning tool for new shooters due to its low felt recoil and nearly silent report, and it’s also quite affordable. Of course, it can also be used for hunting small game and taking out predators and varmints – and let’s not forget the Inuit woman who once took down a grizzly bear with a fantastically-placed shot through the eye. What’s the greatest part of .22LR? Plinking, of course, and for that you want a big box of ammunition.
The standard weight range for the .22LR is between 34 and 40 grain; these particular .22LR rounds are 38 grain, putting them solidly within that range and also making them lightweight. Because they’re light these rounds are capable of reaching higher speeds while traveling down-range towards targets and also help maintain the lesser recoil for which the caliber is known. These are Hollow Point (HP) rounds and as such expand somewhat on impact while simultaneously decelerating. Because they slow down while mushrooming they create a larger wound cavity and also prevent over-penetration. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 1280 feet per second. This ammunition is ideal for taking down varmints and pests and can also be used for target practice and plinking.
Shooting at higher volumes is a favorite pastime for many gun owners with .22LR-chambered firearms, and with 500 HP rounds in this box you’re going to get some nice trigger time. With 500 rounds you can take care of the pest problem on your property and still have enough left for ventilating cans – and then you’ll have a few more for teaching a new shooter the basics. This ammunition is made by Centurion, which is a subsidiary of TECNOS, a plant founded in 1961 by Remington. Remington no longer has any ties to TECNOS, and over the years TECNOS has become known for producing economically priced ammunition. Don’t let your .22LR go hungry; feed it. Order now.
