- Q & A
.22LR is favored by many farmers and homeowners in the country as a method of pest control. Crows destroy many crops from above, and scarecrows aren’t as effective as movies make them out to be. Gophers burrow and ruin vegetable gardens, and foxes literally raid the hen house. Some shooters also use them for squirrel and other little game. It takes good shot placement to make a clean kill, but it’s quite effective. Of course, in order to do that, it’s preferable to load your rifle with hollow points rather than the traditional lead round nose ammunition used for plinking.
This Federal ammunition is CPHP; the copper plating leaves your gun cleaner and the hollow points mushroom some on impact and begin to decelerate. It’s 36 grain, which is a standard weight for .22LR, and its lightweight, which increases velocity. Of course, the fact that these are Federal’s Champion high-velocity rounds also increases velocity; these rounds zip from your gun’s barrel with real speed. They have a muzzle velocity of 1,260 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 125 foot-pounds. Avid shooters say these rounds feed and eject reliably and have great accuracy.
All of Federal’s ammunition is made in America at their long-time plant in Anoka, Minnesota. Since Charles Horn founded the company in 1922, it’s had a stellar reputation for quality; they were even awarded an Army-Navy “E” for excellence for their production assistance during World War II. When you order this 525-round box, you can be confident you’re purchasing high quality, American-made ammunition. And in addition to its varmint-control uses, it’s also fantastic for target practice and plinking. Trust Federal to help you keep your property pest-free and your plinking a pleasure.
