This ammo right here? A perfect selection for pretty much any firearm chambered for 22 LR, whether it’s a Henry lever-action or a semi-auto Glock 44. Its versatile 40 grain bullet is plated with copper to reduce its impact on any weapon’s bore, and its round nose profile promotes greater accuracy for target shooting while still inflicting decent energy at the moment of impact. Smaller varmints are no match for a well-placed CPRN bullet in spite of the fact that it can’t expand within soft tissue.
Aguila has developed their own non-corrosive and highly reliable rimfire primer technology, and their 22 LR ammo has gained a devoted following because of it. These rounds’ propellant is formulated to reduce fouling, which in conjunction with their low residue copper-plated bullets reduces the need to interrupt target practice for cleaning.
