Believe it or not, its bucket is not the most exciting aspect of this rimfire ammunition. Each round sports a 36 grain projectile, which is 10 percent lighter than usual to deliver a fast 1,260 fps muzzle velocity. That makes this ammo as good for laid-back plinking as it does trying to needle out those elusive varmints.
The bullet’s copper plating reduces how much lead residue it can leave behind in the barrel, and its hollow point enables it to reliably expand over a wide range of velocities. Any smaller varmint you hit with this kind of bullet is going to kick the bucket for sure.
This round’s brass case promises reliable cycling through semi-autos, bolt actions, pistols, rifles – whatever you’ve got, really. Count on Federal’s non-corrosive primer and clean burning propellant to light up on cue and really start the party!
