Picked up 2 boxes of CCI Copper 22lr 1850 fps.
Want to try it out in my 15-22.
Has anyone here tried it out yet? Being lead free its safer.
How about residue and clean up ?
Being a very high velocity must shoot a bit high?
That speed is correct , the bullet is 21gr with a mixture of copper and polymers, CCI also has 1435 fps 40 gr. in the Velocitor. Another hot round is the Browning BPR at 1435 fps 40gr. and than the Aguila Interceptor 40 gr that gets 1470 fps. Everything else is generic , Swamp People is a marketing ploy
My concern would be correct feeding. From the images it appears that the oal of the bullet might be shorter? I have also heard in the past that you shouldn't use too much high velocity ammo in the 15-22. Cant remember exactly why or if this round would qualify with it being such a light bullet. Thanks for testing it for us! Be sure to report back.
22plinkster on YouTube did a review of this and if I remember correctly the ammo accuracy was mediocre and the range was also limited (about 50 yards).
