This ammo is as simple as 22 LR gets, and simple is good. Each round has a 38 grain projectile – just a hair lighter than average – and a high muzzle velocity of 1,235 fps. If you’re firing the rifle you’d need in order to get that velocity, you could expect supersonic performance out to about 40 yards.
The bullet itself is a lead round nose. It’s a solid chunk of lead: no copper plating, no nose cavity, no cool trademarked name. The LRN doesn’t do terminal expansion, but that’s not going to stop it from dropping a vermin. Blazer says this ammo functions well in semi-automatics, so you can give it a go in your 10/22, Mk IV, Buck Mark and what have you.
