1850 FPS is not a number you would expect to see associated with .22LR ammo, but the new CCI Copper-22 is not your normal .22 ammo.

According to CCI, the innovative projectile “is constructed from a unique mix of copper particles and polymer compressed into a potent, 21-grain hollow-point bullet. Combined with CCI’s reliable priming and propellant, Copper-22 loads achieve a muzzle velocity of 1,850 fps and provide superb accuracy.” That means this little rounds pack about 160 ft.lbs of energy from the muzzle. The light weight and high velocity also means that these rounds should have a very flat trajectory.

Here are some quick facts from the manufacturer:

  • Non-lead bullet suited for plinking, target-shooting and small game hunting
  • 21-grain hollow-point bullet
  • Compressed copper-polymer construction
  • 1,850 fps muzzle velocity
  • Excellent accuracy

You can expect to see the CCI .22LR ammo on the shelf very soon. Until then you can see a video preview of how they perform here:

  1. Must be a new run of these…I have some from several years ago. They’re definitely short-range rounds for pest control or hunting small game. As with all .22s some guns like them; some don’t.

  2. Yup, never to be seen because people camp out at the walmarts to hoard ammo. CCI doesn’t crank out ammo fast enough or in large enough quantities.
