This round’s 40 grain LRN is nothing new, but that’s only because the simple bullet performs so well. Its nose profile is rounded for smooth feeding and consistent accuracy, and its lack of copper plating or a painstakingly engineered hollow point nose cavity both make its production more cost-effective. SK is a rimfire specialist, so even their casual plinking and target shooting rounds have fine brass cases and uniformly loaded propellant charges. When you only make one kind of cartridge, you had better make it right after all!
This cartridge has a muzzle velocity of 1,073 fps (26” test barrel). Its muzzle energy is 102 ft lbs. According to SK it has a 944 fps velocity at 100 yards, placing its G1 ballistic coefficient around .055.
