This round’s TMJ begins as a lead core, which is subsequently enveloped in a pure layer of copper. In simple terms, hot propellant gasses cannot access the TMJ’s core, so they can not melt lead onto the rifling or turn it into airborne particles.
CCI’s certainly going to treat you to the 22 WMR’s signature high velocity. This cartridge’s 1,875 fps muzzle velocity gives its 40 grain bullet a G1 ballistic coefficient of 0.127. Should stay faster than 1,300 fps at 100 yards, no sweat!
CCI is widely regarded as one of the greatest rimfire ammo producers of all time. The Idahoan company’s sure-fire primer certainly contributes to this reputation, as do their fine brass cases and clean-burning propellant.
