22LR Ammo

The most popular firearm cartridge in the world is the .22 Long Rifle. Though not suited for self-defense due to its limited power and low penetration, .22 long rifle ammo works well for everything else from casual target shooting to survival hunting. Additionally, the light recoil of .22 LR ammunition is ideal for helping new shooters develop their skills.

.22 LR ammo comes in several varieties. Standard velocity ammo fires a bullet weighing about 40 grains at a muzzle velocity of 1,000 feet per second, delivering great close-range accuracy. "SV" ammo is inherently subsonic, making it the load of choice for suppressed shooting. High velocity ammo typically produces a muzzle velocity of 1,200 or more; its greater power lends itself well to cycling the actions of semi-automatic firearms, and to bringing down game animals or varmints.

Hollow point bullets are a great choice in .22 LR, as they can be used for both hunting and target shooting. Lead round nose and copper-plated bullets offer reliable, economical performance for target shooting. Match-grade .22 LR ammo costs a bit extra, but delivers superior reliability and accuracy for hard-fought competitive matches.
