According to our math, when you order 3,000 rounds of 22 LR ammunition, you’ll be able to kill 8.2 squirrels every day for a year. (Or 9.6 squirrels every day if you take Sundays off.) And if you’re going to invest in so much 22 LR, you’d do well to partner up with one of America’s preeminent rimfire ammo specialists!
CCI’s Mini-Mag MeatEater edition 22 LR cartridge is equipped with a 36 grain projectile. It’s a touch lighter than usual, and that pays off in the form of a boosted muzzle velocity. When it leaves the barrel at 1,260 fps, the bullet achieves a 0.125 G1 ballistic coefficient so it can fly flat and reach the 100-yard line with 80 ft lbs of squirrel-killing energy in tow.
This round’s bullet is plated with copper, which helps to preserve a rifle or pistol’s accuracy by slowing down lead residue accumulation within the rifling. More importantly, its hollow point nose cavity enables the bullet to expand as it bores through a small animal. Deadly stuff!
CCI’s sensitive rimfire primers, clean-burning powder and superb brass cases all support so hard-working a bullet’s performance. This ammo ought to function just as well in semi-autos as it would manual action firearms.
