CCI® .22 Rimfire Rounds
Green tag accuracy
I have used CCI Green tag for many years, even when the tag was green. In 3 different Marlin .22"s they have proved more accurate, on the bench, than even the more famous .22 target amo. My sons and I have obtained 1/4" or smaller groups at 50 yards. We use them for squirrel hunting, up to about 70 yds. because of their accuracy and low noise. I would not use them on woodchucks or predators due to lack of power, but for hitting squirrels in the head and not spooking the whole woods, they are tops.

a good round
The round nose mini-mags shoot very well from my rifle and have never disappointed me. The copper coat on the nose seems to help keep the barrel clean and I don't recall ever jamming due to bad brass. I also like that I can shoot a quality, accurate round for a reasonable price.

I use the 22 Winchester Magnum for fox and coyotes. Never had a problem with misfires and jams. Dropped a coyote at 75 yards with a 40 grain Hollow point. He did not twitch at all. These shells have great range and knockdown power. A must have for those who like to shoot far ranges. The Maxi-Mag HP is also another good shell. It is a 32 Grain Hollow Point. Good for the shots the the 40 Grain may not reach out to. CCi shells have always been the best for me and I will never stop usingthem. The price is right and their quality is very great as well. Their 22 long rifle loads are very good for squirrels and other little varmints. The 22 Stingers are awesome also. travels at 1640 feet per second as has one heck of a smash when it hits. I shot a porcupine with one and he was history. It only took one. The Stinger is a like the 22 Winchester Magnum Maxi Magnum HP except it is in the 22 Long Rifle Load. These CCI cartridges are what I believe to be one of the best performing shells out there on todays market.

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.
