The famous Mini-Mag brand of .22 Long Rifle was first introduced in 1963 by CCI. Today, CCI is part of the ATK parent company, along with Speer, Federal, and other ammo makers. Backed by the state of the art manufacturing clout of ATK, CCI continues to produce Mini-Mags, which is now one of the most popular brands of .22 ammo on the market.
Unlike most other common brands of .22 ammo, Mini-Mags are not sold in big bulk packs of 400 or 500 rounds. Instead, they come in the trademark hard plastic 100-round cases. Mini-Mag isn't the only brand that's packaged this way, but it's the most recognizable. Because of the unique name and packaging, there's sometimes a lot of myth and mystery surrounding Mini-Mags. So are they better than less expensive brands, or is it all just clever marketing?
Well, first of all, despite the name, Mini-Mags are not Magnum ammo. They don't have any more power or velocity than most other .22 loads. They feature a copper-plated, 40-grain, lead round-nosed bullet that exits the muzzle of a rifle at 1,235 feet per second. That rates this Mini-Mag as a high velocity, but not hyper velocity.
Accuracy is better than average, but not as good as a high dollar specialty target load. This 10 shot group was fired from 50 yards using a stock Marlin .795 on a benchrest. With a modest 4-power optic, we got a group that measured well under an inch, minus the one flyer.
Where the Mini-Mag really shines is its reliability. It's no secret that most .22 ammo, especially in the big value packs, can have hit or miss dependability. Mini-Mags, however, seem to be the go-to round if your gun won't feed anything else. Out of the three rifle and free handguns that we used for this video, we had no reliability problems at all when using the Mini-Mags.
CCI Mini-Mags are not magic, and no brand of ammo can boast a 100% reliability rate. You may encounter a gun that just doesn't work well with Mini-Mags, and that's how things go with semi-auto .22s. But if you want the best chance of your gun going bang every time and still want to shoot on a budget, Mini-Mags represent the best balance of performance and price. This load is an excellent choice for the range, but if you want the same quality in a hunting load, be sure to check out the hollow point version of the Mini-Mag.
Great 22LR ammo and an outstanding company
Review by SteveMcPilot. (Posted on 9/12/12)
I have shot at least 10,000 rounds of CCI Mini-Mags with very few problems (FTF/FTE) . I bet I have had about 20 FTF or FTE out of 10,000+ rounds. That's not bad! I never had any problems when shooting my Henry AR-7 or Marlin model 60W (both are semi auto rifles). My CZ Kadet and S&W 22A-1 (semi-auto pistols) really don't like the HPs but are OK with the RN. If you are looking for one of the most reliable low cost 22LR rounds then go with CCI Mini-Mags.
As for Lucky Gunner, it is by far the best on-line ammo company. Shipping is fast and customer service is outstanding.

Mini-Mag Extra kick makes for a reliable 1911-22 experience
Review by Andrew. (Posted on 8/27/12)
Sig 1911-22 (GSG really) handles well with these. At 1200 rounds and only maybe 4 FTL incidents. Every round was able to fire and all of them flew pretty true to aim (for a 22 rimfire at least.) The extra pressure in these is probably key to having the gun's action cycle so reliably. I'll buy nothing but these after having used so many successfully. They aren't the cheapest choice but for the GSG 1911-22 they may be the best. Some rounds had a chalky/waxy white residue on their tips which was thicker and heavier on the noses in the FTLs mentioned above. Wiping the tips of those with too much wax may prevent the FTL.

Review by Aztec87. (Posted on 7/5/12)
I have some CCI lead round nose of this manufacture for my M-4A1 Carbine and it's horrible. Every shot you get a jam when it's feeding to the chamber!!! I prefer using great quality such as Federal Ammo, Winchester, or as my last resort Remington.

Delighted I found Luckygunner. This was my first experience with an online purchase of ammo. It went extremely well. I will purchase more of my ammo from Luckygunner in the near future.

rifle likes them, lots of FTE in pistol
Review by Fwank. (Posted on 6/6/12)
I have a Ruger 10/22 carbine and it runs like a sewing machine on these. Also gets pretty good accuracy with them. I have a Ruger 22/45 target pistol, though, that gives frequent extraction and ejection problems with these. It could be the gun. I am thinking about getting an aftermarket extractor put in it to see if things improve.

Kimber Custom II with Kimber .45/.22 converter
Review by Glad2Bhere. (Posted on 5/20/12)
These cartridges are the least expensive and most reliable ones that run through the Kimber 1911 converter. Even CCI Stingers (1600+ fps) jam more frequently and cost a lot more. The Kimber converter does not like hollow points of any kind, either. These CCI RNs haven't jammed in 500 rounds. Price is a bit high, but still about 1/5 the cost for the cheapest Russian TulAmmo .45, 230 gr.

Great product & service!
Review by Michael. (Posted on 11/28/11)
I was very impressed with how quickly I received my order! I never take the time to right reviews but these guys are that good!
CCI ammo has worked perfectly so far. Out of 500 rounds fired all 500 worked perfectly in my Smith & Wesson M&P 15/22. I even did rapid fire with a 30 round clip playing around.
New Loyal customer!

I like buying from your site because it is efficient and what you display on your web site is always in stock and gets shipped immediately and is eayt to track. Maybe you and UPS should take over the Post Office.

the search for the best round is over
Review by glock. (Posted on 4/18/11)
no more testing brand after brand. If you shoot a .22 target pistol, this is the one that will cycle the action and go bang everytime.
