.22 Long is a great cartridge and while it has become something of a curio and relic, it still has nostalgia and usability in guns that are still as fun as the day you learned to shoot with them. This is a plain vanilla .22Long cartridge featuring a 29 grain copper plated projectile and brass rimfire case.
.22Long can be used in a .22 LR firearm, but generally it doesn’t function all guns properly nor is that what its sweet spot is. Used in tube magazine guns that have a chamber specifically for this caliber is where it makes the most sense. Getting an extra 1-2 shots from your favorite childhood gun while teaching Junior how to shoot squirrels is where the .22 Long finds its sweet spot. Plinking tin cans or shooting at far away objects out back is where the .22 Long finds its home.
A very straightforward cartridge which is kind of rare nowadays: this is simple, plain, and just the same as you remember. A 29 grain projectile moves at 1215 fps at the bore exit. Max effective range for small game is around 75 yards depending on conditions and the game. This ammunition is suitable for very small game like rabbits, gophers, squirrels and close range for things like coyotes.
