This cartridge’s bullet is the good old lead round nose. It’ll surely hurt a varmint good, although it lacks the nose cavity it’d need to follow up impact with terminal expansion. The simple bullet merely possesses the cylindrical body it needs to create a tight seal against the bore and the streamlined nose profile requisite for good accuracy.
The 40 grain bullet won’t become supersonic before exiting a rifle’s muzzle, so it can’t be trusted to cycle a semi-automatic. But a subsonic bullet’s trajectory is extra predictable because it can’t lose rotational stability as it transitions from super- to subsonic velocity, and its report is especially quiet as well.
Aguila’s decades of experience, Olympics grade primers, clean-burning propellant and carefully standardized brass cases all make their Mexico-made 22 LR ammunition supremely reliable. Order the whole case and see why so many target shooters swear by it!
