    CCI Copper 22 - 21 Grain 1850 fps hollow points for 22LR

    Very cool...

    http://www.outdoorhub.com/news/2016/...ng-22lr-speed/

    1850 FPS is not a number you would expect to see associated with .22LR ammo, but the new CCI Copper-22 is not normal .22LR ammo.

    According to CCI, the innovative projectile “is constructed from a unique mix of copper particles and polymer compressed into a potent, 21-grain hollow-point bullet. Combined with CCI’s reliable priming and propellant, Copper-22 loads achieve a muzzle velocity of 1,850 fps and provide superb accuracy.” That means this little rounds pack about 160 ft.lbs of energy from the muzzle. The light weight and high velocity also means that these rounds should have a very flat trajectory.

    Here are some quick facts from the manufacturer:
    • Non-lead bullet suited for plinking, target-shooting and small game hunting
    • 21-grain hollow-point bullet
    • Compressed copper-polymer construction
    • 1,850 fps muzzle velocity
    • Excellent accuracy


    You can expect to see these rounds on the shelf very soon.

    I'm not sure, I'd love to see someone correct me here, but a lightweight bullet shouldn't keep it flatter. If I remember correctly, gravity acts on all objects equally, regardless of weight. Heavy bullets and light bullets moving at the same velocity fall at the same rate.

        You are 100% correct about the fact that gravity affects all objects equally. However, this round should have a flatter trajectory due to its increased speed. Less time in the air from point A to B should mean less time for the bullet to drop over said distance.

          Either way, just more CCI 22 that we will never be able to get our hands on unless your superman quick
          The escape is nowhere near complete. The inventor of LIBERAL fishing. (soon to be seen on ESPN 45 because the 44th never worked.)

            I need a few hundred for AppleSeed.

                  That's why I said "moving at the same velocity"

                    No, but we have CCI Stingers.

                      Seems very cool....but unless it is going to be used for hunting, most people find subsonic loads to work best in long range shooting, since it eliminates the wobble effect when it goes transonic

                        Yes and no. If it gets to the target before going subsonic then it's a winner.

                          true, but it's still my experience that subsonic ammo tends to group better in shorter distances as well. ..not always...but in general it does

                              This is what I was thinking, but I'm a little leery of how the barrel will look like with a copper/polymer composite after 1000 rounds. Will the polymer be soft? Will it be a pain in the ass to clean off the rifling? Only time will tell.
