 22 rimfire Ammo

Hey, I just found this site and couldn't wait to sign up. I have been wondering for a long time why 22 rimfire cartridges don't have better bullets. I think the 22 mag does and the .17 so why not the old standby 22 long rifel?

 22 rimfire Ammo

Welcome to the forum. I was just down to Cabelas and I think it would take a wheelbarrow to haul all of the different ammo for the 22lr alone.

Not sure what you are looking for, faster, hotter, shot, fragmenting... But I did not recall seeing the fragmenting rounds. But then again I was not looking very hard.

If you're looking for a better .22 long rifle round beyond the ordinary, get a box of CCI stingers. They have more zip!! Enough more that you can tell by the sound.

Cutter:
Can't recall ever seeing a fragmenting style round for the .22LR.

But I like the CCI Stingers because they seem to shock the critter and give an instaneous death. The slight gain in velocity gives it quite a bit of energy at impact.

Yup, I was thinking about the lead bullet ricocheting off of a rock or frozen ground. If they would fragment they would be safer. It always bothers me when they go whizzing off sideways! Although, I do like the sound.

I think alot of this lies in the velocity of the 22. The stinger does fragment(from experience). What are you shooting? varmit/ small game? More animals have probably been taken with the 22 rimfire than all other catridges combined. Nuff said.
The 22 mag has jackets bullets which fragment (good gain in velocity too).

I wasn't aware the stinger rounds would fragment. I'll give them a try. I use my .22 rimfire for everything except, deer, coyote, fox and birds. So mostly small varments, skunks, goffers, plinking, etc. I agree the the .22 rimfire has taken more animals than all other catridges combined. Another reason I think the bullet selection could be better. The .17 rimfire and .22 rimfire mag have better selections, and now Hornady has rubber tipped bullets for tubular magazines in, .30-.30.,.35 Remington, .444 Marlin, .45-70 and .450 Marlin. Maybe the .22 rimfire is next. I read the .30-.30 has a ballistic coefficient of .337. Just thinking that the .22 could be zipped up to .25?

You got me thinking about CCI Stingers so I looked at their web site. They have a round called Quik-Shok 22 Long Rifle. They have the same numbers as the Stinger rounds. But, have a 32 grain segmented hollow point bullet that breaks into four large pieces on impact. Usage small to medium varments. They also have a faster round than the Stingers called Velocitor. It has a 40 grain gilded hollow point nose at 1435 ft/sec. 22 percent greater energy at 100 yards than regular high speed hollow points. Usage up to large varments like coyotes. I think I have found some new rounds to try. Thanks.
