The bullet atop the cartridge is a 40-grain lead hollow-point (LHP) with a shallow hollow cavity in its round nose. 40 grains is a common weight to the .22 Long Rifle caliber and will match plenty of bulk plinking rounds so that a shooter can maintain consistent sight adjustments. The rounded shape of the bullet allows it to glide up the feed ramp of any Volquartsen Scorpion pistol or Ruger American rifle while an enlarged midsection grabs greater rifling, enhances spin stability, and produces match-style accuracy.
