Idaho-based CCI Ammunition unveiled 14 new products for rimfire shooters at this year’s SHOT Show in Las Vegas. We visited with CCI’s JJ Reich to get the low down on the new loads and packaging in the above video.
The new offerings ranged from Meat Eater Steven Rinella and 22Plinkster tie-ins, to easy-to-pour bulk pack cartons, to new Clean-22 Suppressor and Segmented Hollow-point loads.
CCI has released three new, convenient cartons, catering to small game and varmint hunters, that hold 125 rounds of .22 WMR HP 40-grain Maxi-Mag, .22 WMR 30-grain VNT, or .17 HMR 17-grain VNT. Each has a “wanted” poster on the side featuring assorted critters.
Partnered with MeatEater’s Steven Rinella, CCI also has a series of branded new ammo that includes Copper-22 .22 LR 21-grain HP, Mini-Mag .22 LR, 36-grain CPHP, and Maxi-Mag .22 WMR 40-grain JHPs.
When it comes to new Clean-22 loads, using the company’s polymer bullet coating to reduce copper and lead fouling, a Clean-22 Segmented Hollow Point .22 WMR stands out. Using a 46-grain bullet that splits into three roughly equal-sized pieces on impact, the polymer coating reportedly still delivers at longer distances while separating at much lower impact velocities.
The new Clean-22 Suppressor .22 LR, with a polymer-coated 45-grain bullet, is advertised as being able to reduce lead fouling inside a suppressor by half, allowing for easier can cleaning and maintenance.
There is also a Clean-22 special-edition package promoting the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) Steel Challenge competitions.
Last but not least, there is now a special-edition Stinger dubbed “Stangers” after 22Plinkster’s usage, still using the common 32-grain copper-plated hollow-point bullet with a velo of 1,640 fps.
