If you own a rifle chambered in .22LR, then you’re aware it’s a versatile weapon. The .22LR can be used for quite a few things, including varmint and pest control, hunting small game such as squirrels, and, of course, plinking. But perhaps its most popular and common use is teaching new shooters the ropes of the gun world. Thanks to the low recoil and quiet report of this round it’s ideal for new shooters; the low recoil helps prevent them from developing bad habits such as flinching. It’s great for handguns and rifles, and if you’ve got one or both chambered in .22LR, you know you need a big case of ammunition.
These particular .22LR rounds are made by SK, a company that can trace its roots all the way back to 1829. In 1825, Louis Sellier founded Sellier and Bellot, and in 1829 he and his partner, Jean Maria Nicolaus Bellot, founded a company for the production of percussion primers. That company has been flourishing for almost 200 years. In 1992 it was purchased by a Finnish organization and renamed SK, and has continued to manufacture good quality, small-caliber rounds.
These .22LR rounds weigh 40 grain, so they’re pretty lightweight but they’re still within the standard weight range for the cartridge size. Being so incredibly lightweight is why these rounds don’t create much felt recoil, and it also means they move down-range faster. These are Lead Round Nose (LRN) rounds and as such do not expand on impact. Each round travels down-range at a muzzle velocity of 1050 feet per second, and rounds of this weight have an average muzzle energy of approximately 105 foot-pounds. This ammunition is best for target practice and plinking. There are 5000 rounds in this box of ammunition, which is manufactured by SK in Schoneburg, Germany. If you want to shoot to your heart’s content, you need this box of ammo, so get your order in and be ready for some extensive trigger time.
