This ammo’s clean, Gene! CCI’s Maxi-Mag label 22 WMR ammunition features not a full metal jacket, but a total metal jacket bullet. That’s going to keep your firearm more accurate in the long run – not to mention prevent a lot of lead vapor from finding its way to your lungs.
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.Buy 40 Grain TMJ
Browning’s brass cases are fresh out of the factory. You will see where the brass has been discolored by the annealing process, which made it stronger for reloadability’s sake and supple to seal off the chamber more effectively during ignition. Non-corrosive Boxer primers and clean-burning powder bring an all-American round all together. Ideal for target practice, but not to be overlooked if you ever need a quick solution for self-defense!
This cartridge features the semi-auto’s quintessential FMJ bullet. It’s comprised of a solid lead core and hard gilding metal jacket, so there’s no steel in there to get it barred from use at indoor ranges. At 55 grains the round’s 3,180 fps muzzle velocity is just about average as can be, with a 0.250 G1 ballistic coefficient that yields a level trajectory. There’s no expansion-promoting features to an FMJ, although the cannelure circling its shank will help prevent the bullet from creeping back or forth in its case before it is fired.25 Grain NTX
This cartridge’s case is made of brass and fresh from the factory. People ask all the time if the gray on this ammo’s cases means they are reloaded, but that’s a totally normal marking for military-grade brass. It just means it has been annealed, a process which fortifies brass and makes it able to more reliably return to its original dimensions after ignition. Winchester loads consistent and non-corrosive primers for reliable, clean ignition. Buy 40 Grain TMJ
