What is the hottest .22 long rifle ammo?
Off the shelf, there are some factors here. '
Bullet weight is a factor in reference to FPS and energy.
I would bet that one of the Stinger products is highest from the shelf. But, I will keep looking here for one of the .22 experts to step up and set us all straight.
THe Velocitor is best full weight .22lr, though the last chrono numbers were dead even with MIni Mag.
Stinger is probably the 'hottest' based on FPE numbers.
CCI has got to be up there.
I would say the Velocitor or Stingers. What are you going to shoot them in? There are many manufacturers that warn against using the hyper velocity stuff.
Not sure if it's the "hottest", but I like CCI Stingers.
Velocitor is a hot round, and about as accurate as any match ammo I have compared it to (and more accurate than most.) Easily out-performs Stinger Mini-Mag, and all other HV rounds I've tested (for accuracy.)
Terminal ballistics are superb for the caliber. I'm buying as much as I can afford (which is to say, a lot.)
Winchester varmit HE is about 1435 fps
Aguila super maximum is about 1750 fps
CCI Stinger and Segmented is about 1640 fps
I keep CCI Velocitors (claim 40gr hp @ 1435fps) in my NAA .22lr revolver. My second choice a non hp would be Remington Vipers (claim 36gr solid @ 1410fps). YMMV
Thanks for all the responses.
Aguila Super Maximum claim 1750fps at the muzzle... and is only two grains shy of CCI's Stinger.
Which one's? I've got a MK II, 10/22, a couple Marlin M1's, and a Marlin 60 and don't want to tear anything up with them. I mostly shoot bulk for the hell of it but have a couple boxes of mini mags and stingers, never equated any .22 ammunition as overpowered but I guess any of them can be.
mostly guns that have a match chamber.....
