This cartridge is loaded with a 40 grain lead round nose bullet. It’s a high-quality example of an LRN, with a ballistically efficient nose profile and even weight distribution. The bullet is only going to achieve a muzzle velocity of 1,085 fps upon clearing a rifle barrel, and that’s the primary reason for its precise trajectory. A bullet which can’t undergo transonic destabilization will not pick up a wobble before it can reach its target!
Browning goes one step further by giving each PRO22 round a precise target crimp. That ensures every bullet in this case of 2,000 shares virtually identical alignment, which in turn provides consistent chambering and engagement with the rifling. So long as you don’t expect terminal expansion from this subsonic target ammo, you’re going to love it!
