22LR Ammo

.22 Long Rifle ammo is an extremely popular, versatile, and cost-effective rimfire cartridge suitable for varmint and small game hunting as well as competition and casual target shooting. Though not powerful enough for self-defense, it has helped many new shooters and CCW holders train in the fundamentals of firearm proficiency in part because you can fire bulk quantities at cheap prices.

.22LR cartridges typically come in two major varieties: subsonic "standard velocity" loads and supersonic "high velocity" loads. Standard velocity ammo typically fires a 40 grain bullet at a muzzle velocity of around 1,000 feet per second. "SV" ammo's avoidance of the sound barrier makes it ideal for suppressors and enhances close-range accuracy, an important benefit for match shooting. High velocity ammunition fires the same 40 grain bullet (or sometimes a lighter one) at a muzzle velocity of 1,200 feet per second and produces flatter trajectories and better terminal performance against game; it is also the preferred load for many semi-automatic firearms as it cycles their actions more reliably.

Most ammo manufacturers produce at least one .22 LR load; hollow points are obviously best suited for hunting, while basic lead nose bullets are used for target shooting. The bullets are typically plated with copper or covered in a variety of coatings to reduce lead fouling. Notable rimfire specialists include ELEY, which is a favorite of many competitive shooters, and CCI, which manufactures the famously reliable Mini-Mag as well as a wide variety of hunting and target shooting loads in every velocity and projectile category.

    This big range pack of 22 LR ammo by Aguila is the perfect way to enjoy any firearm at the range. Bolt-action rifle, or semi-auto like the AR-15 or 10/22? Buntline revolver or compact semi-auto? It’s still going to love burning through 250 rounds of Mexico’s finest just as much as you will!

    This round’s 40 grain bullet pours out of a rifle’s muzzle at 1,255 fps – more than 100 fps faster than the speed of sound, and accordingly easier to aim thanks to its flat trajectory. The bullet does a great job of preventing residue from building up inside the barrel, as its copper plating prevents the lead in its core from gumming up the rifling. A round nose bullet like this may deform a little inside of soft tissue; not nearly as much as a hollow point, but we still wouldn’t want to be the squirrel who gets knocked in the ribs with a 40 grain CPRN traveling at 1,000 fps.

    Aguila developed their own intensely reliable rimfire primer technology, making certain it would live up to even an Olympian’s expectations. Each round’s non-corrosive primer and clean burning propellant complement its copper-plated bullet’s performance to keep fouling at an acceptable minimum.

    Flies like an eagle!

    I discovered Aguila ammo a number of years ago. It is my go-to in .22LR, and its 9mm 124 gr offering is also tops. (The 9mm offering I've used has a mid-case crimp to prevent the bullets from moving under high recoil, a problem that can cause FTF and FTE.) I believe Aguila ammo is made at a former Remington facility in Mexico. Component quality is superb. This .22 is very reliable. I shoot it in several guns; works very well.
