CCI .22 Rimfire Rounds
Excellent All Around Use
I use many different types and brands of .22 rimfire ammuniton. I have found that the CCI Mini-Mags are one of the best for all around conditions. It works well in ammunition sensitive semi-auto pistols and rifles anyone who owns a Ruger 10-22 knows what I mean by ammuniton sensitive. It is clean burning and will not lead barrels when shooting 500 plus rounds per session. It is not the most accurate but for it's price range you can't beat any of the CCI rimfire ammunitions performance and quality. I have never had a single misfire while using this ammunition due to a bad primer.

A very accurate round
Quite simply this .22 LR round is great. It is very accurate and has a consistent flight. The velocity of the 40 grain round is 1,070 feet per second.
This is slower than that of the Federal jacketed bulk rounds I shoot more frequently. However, out of my Ruger 10/22 I can place the CCI rounds more consistently than with any cheaper ammo.
I like Federal .22LR for regular, cheap plinking but if the shot counts, I use CCI. When skunks or other pests are a nuisance I use the CCI Stinger round. It flies at 1,640 feet per second with a lighter 32 grain hollow point. It definitely does the job and with a lot of punch.
CCI are very reliable rounds and I have never had a defective round and rarely a misfeed in any of my guns.

The 22 Short CHP bullets are fun to shoot.They aren't loud like a normal 22 long rifle bullet,they sound like a capgun.They only go about 800 feet per second.They also are clean shooting so they don't make you claen your barrel every time you shoot them. I would recomend them to anybody wanting to plink or go after that gopher in their backyard.

I have used these rounds for years. I started using them because my grandpa and my dad have used them as long as they can remember. I asked my grandpa why he used these .22 shots and he said because they are cheap and very reliable. He was right. I like them better than feds, remingtons, and winchesters. I have never had a dud in my plinking or hunting days. I got my marlin 25N about 4 years ago and they work really well with the gun. (I use the hollow-point and will go through 100 of them in a day with friends.) it is really reliable ammo.
