Consistency is the story behind the excellent performance of this round by Federal Premium, and it comes from a variety of factors normally overlooked by bulk producers of .22 LR. The round is a culmination of all the best practices that Federal is famous for across different lines. Federal features them all combined into a single load with a round that is a very good value for those who actually need the accuracy boost that these best practices can offer. In the .22LR round many projectiles are available, but this 40 grain solid projectile is among the most consistent. Not only can you tell when you look at the quality of finish and the lack of handling marks, scuffs and gouges, but when you recognize the improved tolerances and the consistent overall length of the load and length of the protruding bullet.
This is one of the more consistent rounds in a velocity (1080 FPS) regard as well. It will reliably perform within a much tighter range than most loads, including other target loads. With a round that is as light weight at the .22LR, consistency in velocity can have a major impact on the flattening of trajectory and the specific accuracy on target at any distance past 50 yards.
