Thread: Sometimes Cheap .22 ammo is OK.

    Sometimes Cheap .22 ammo is OK.

    I chronographed some 40 grain CCI Blazer .22LR last night. This is cheap HV ammo that I bought for $120/5000 which has delivered some fairly reliable performance on paper and game. Last night I had the Chrono out for the 308 and ran some of this .22 through my 1951 Brno just for yucks. I was surprised! Extreme spread of 40 fps and a standard deviation of 12 fps for a 20 round sample. Not bad for bargain ammo.~Muir

    (And at 100M put 5 shots on a 3" square in a quartering head wind...)

    That was a year and a half ago. I bought three cases from the ranch store in he city; they had it by the pallet load. I'll bet they wish they had that now...~Muir
