- Q & A
The .22LR is a round that can trace its roots back to the Flobert BB of 1845. With more than 150 years behind it you might think the quick little round might have lost some popularity, but if anything it’s used even more than ever. The ever-increasing popularity of the .22LR might be due to its soft report and minimal recoil or it might be due to its affordable pricing – or perhaps it’s its incredible versatility. After all, you can use your .22LR for everything from teaching brand new shooters the rules of the gun world to hunting for small pests such as squirrels and coyotes to plinking, which just may be the greatest use of all. If you’re going to use your .22LR to take out pests, make sure you load your gun with the right ammunition.
These particular .22LR rounds are made by Federal. They weigh 38 grain, which makes them both incredibly lightweight and within the standard weight range for the cartridge size. Being so lightweight is what gives these rounds their speed and keeps felt recoil down. These are CPHP, Copper-Plated Hollow Point, rounds and as such they begin to expand at the moment of impact. Being CP rounds means they fire more cleanly, too, so if you’ve been firing a lot of lead-nosed rounds through your .22LR, these will help clean it out. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1260 feet per second and muzzle energy of 138 foot-pounds. These rounds are good for hunting squirrels and other pests but can also be used for target practice.
When you place your order for this single box of ammunition from Federal you get 50 rounds. With 50 CPHP rounds you can take out quite a few squirrels or spend time blowing away empty soda cans, but just think what you could do with even more. Place one order for a little fun with your .22LR, but order multiple boxes to shoot your gun to heart’s content. Federal has been manufacturing ammunition for almost 100 years and takes pride in producing good quality, reliable rounds. Production takes place at their longtime factory in Anoka, Minnesota.
