Cascade Cartridges, Inc., or CCI, was founded in 1951 by Richard Speer, a Boeing machinist. When Richard started CCI he first tried to produce brass cases for reloaders, but it was clear the shortages from World War II were not something that could be easily overcome, so he turned his attention to primer. It took a few tries but he eventually came up with a non-corrosive, non-mercuric formula that was incredibly popular, and here we are more than 60 years later and CCI has become well-known for their high-quality primers. They’re so well-known, in fact, that other companies use their primers in their ammunition. CCI has a well-deserved stellar reputation in the industry and these .22LR rounds are an excellent example of their dedication to quality.
These .22LR rounds are a lightweight 40 grain, putting them within the standard weight range for the cartridge size. Being lighter weight enables them to reach greater speeds and also helps to maintain your gun’s minimal recoil. These are Lead Round Nose (LRN) rounds, so they don’t expand on impact although the lead may deform slightly on impact. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1235 feet per second and muzzle energy of 135 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically made for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking.
There are 50 target rounds in this box of ammunition from CCI. With 50 rounds you can spend a little time with your favorite .22LR-chambered firearm, but if you were to order multiple boxes you could spend a lot of time with that gun of yours, and what could be more fun than trigger time with your .22LR? Almost nothing. CCI manufactures this ammunition at their plant in Lewiston, Idaho, right near the banks of the Snake River. Whether you want to spend some personal plinking time with your favorite rifle, teach a new shooter the ropes, or handle a pest problem, these LRN rounds will get the job done. Order yours today and feed your gun.
