Thread: Reduced velocity .22's

  1. #1

    Reduced velocity .22's

    A couple of offers from Remington in the cb low velocity .22 ammo that I've found to be fairly useful to have for when a full power subsonic bullet is too much. The cb 30 grain solid at 32 ft lb and cbee 33 grain hollow point at 40 ft lb. I found these energy figures stated on the box a bit on the low side though. The 30 grain cb's chrono'd at 35 ft lb and the 33 grain cb's at 56 ft lb. I got useable accuracy out to around 25 yards from the cb solid bullets but the cbee hollowpoints were much more accurate and plenty good enough for small vermin at 50 yards from my anschutz carbine. The hollow point has four splits cut into it to aid expansion.

    Thanks for the heads-up on the low-velocity HP ammo. I've tried quite a few varieties of CB .22 ammo in the past but always found it too inconsistent in velocity to hit reliably and too prone to over-penetrate when it did connect. An accurate, expanding round would fix both problems.

    I'd be interested to know how consistent the HP rounds are. Have you chrono'd it for ES and SD?

    If anybody's interested I will run some through the chronograph for consistency this next week or so and post the results and accuracy results also.

    Yes, very interested. Currently using CCI HP Segmenting, they are a great round in my rifle (M201), but something with a little less 'poke' would be terrific as the ground gets harder.

    I like the Aguila Sub Sonic Sniper. Sixty grain bullet at 935 fps and 114 ft/lbs energy. The down side is that not a lot of 1-16" twist rifles will stabilize it well past 25M. Most of my CZ/Brno's with 24" tubes will stabilize it to 50M but my 16.5" Savage prints the bullets sideways at 25M. A 1:9" twist is optimal. ~Muir
