Winchester Lead Hollow Point (LHP) 40 Grain 22 Long Rifle (LR) Ammo - 50 Rounds
The .22 Long Rifle ammunition remains popular with so many today in part because of the round’s relatively quiet report of the cartridge. Out of rifles it can sometimes only sound like a very loud clap, but for pest control in the woods where wearing hearing protection is not always convenient, or even safe, the rapid deployment of a .22 firearm to deal with a woodland threat will not threaten permanent or even very painful hearing damage.
Such is the reasoning behind Winchester’s 40 grain hollow point truncated round. Loaded to lower pressure but with a heavy round designed to open considerable on contact, the cartridge is popular for both accurate target shooting and devastating results on small game and pests. Capable of leaving the muzzle at 870 feet per second with 67 foot pounds of energy, this diminutive round will do precisely what it is designed to do: fly true and hit small varmints hard without ringing the shooter’s bell.
As one of the most recognized names in US arms making, Winchester Repeating Arms ammunition continues to maintain a standard of quality and dependability that sportsmen associate with one of the most famous firearms that tamed the Wild West. Still made in Clayton, Missouri since World War II, Winchester ammunition delivers on a promise Oliver made over a century ago.
