assume 25 yard shot on large varmints. Your go-to round would be ....
I'm goin to have to say CCI's Velocitor, 40 grain hollow point at 1450 feet per second sounds like the best to me.
Altho I'd like to try the CCI Segmented round and see how it does too. 32 grains that split into 3 pieces, on impact, at 1600 fps sounds like it would be pretty devistating to a squirrel.
Large Varmits? CCI Velocitor is the best IMO
Winchester used to make a round called Power Point.
The squirrels and possums around my area dreaded it.
I think I have a couple of boxes left somewhere in the old safe.
I like velocitors too though
cci stinger's as well.....if they shoot good for you.....
minimag solids. i don't change out ammo, i just shoot one kind. it keeps things simple.
If it's a "large varmint", I want the penetration.
quik shoks on something coon sized or smaller. Stingers for something bigger.
Velocitors would be my choice, if they shot accurately in my gun.
Although the question being asked is kind of like which ice pick is the best. Because with the .22LR your shot placement matters much much more then what bullet you are using.
Try the stingers out. Bullet choice has more to do with what game you're trying to kill. I wouldn't advise using quikshoks on squirrels because it can destroy a lot of meat, but that round wouldnt penetrate very deep on a coyote either. For yote you'd want a stinger.
Aguila Interceptors - 40gr @ 1,470fps
Aguila Supermaximum - 30gr @ 1,760fps
CCI SGB's. Because it is a solid and most important, it is the most accurate round my gun shoots. period. There is no subsitute for accuracy ever.
SGB's ?? Sorry, what is that and forgive my asking.
I've never shot a yote, (and if I went out to shoot one I would have a larger caliber then a .22LR) but I have tested stingers and velocitors in gel.
Velocitors penetrated much better. And I've never gotten real good accuracy from Stingers.
Small Game Bullet
I agree with the Supermaximum,they sure produce a heck of a flash out of my Ruger Hunter long barrel.
I would go with CCI Stingers.
I shoot and also stock All KINDS of .22LR , depending on what's on sale, available, what I'm shooting , etc. But for me CCI Is consistently high high quality aka " teh hotnezz" no matter the paricular type of round or CCI " flavor"
