What guns can shoot CCI Stingers?
CCI Stingers and other hyper velocity loads can safely be used in most modern . 22 lr firearms with the exception of rifles with tighter match grade chambers. If you are going to shoot a lot of them in a Ruger 10/22 it is advisable to get a recoil buffer to reduce the extra wear on the action.
What is the cleanest 22LR ammo?
New: CCI Clean-22 Rimfire Ammo. New from CCI is Clean-22 rimfire ammo, which uses a polymer bullet coating to reduce copper and lead barrel fouling. There are two loads available in subsonic (blue) and high-velocity (red) versions. Both loads feature a 40-grain round nosed lead bullet.
Are CCI Stingers any good?
The CCI Stinger is the high performance 22 round. Clocking in at 1640 FPS, this round does make sacrifices for speed. It uses a lower weight bullet (32 grain), as well as a slightly long case that doesn’t work in tight match 22LR chambers. But, you get the fastest 22LR and some pretty amazing accuracy in some rifles.
Are CCI Stingers good?
Coming in at 1,640 ft/s with a 32-grain copper-plated bullet, the CCI Stingers are well in the hyper-velocity (a.k.a. ultra-velocity) category. This makes them significantly faster and more powerful than standard long rifle 32-grain rimfire rounds. It also serves as a protection from the oxidation of the lead bullet.
Can a Ruger 10/22 shoot CCI Stingers?

How accurate are CCI Stingers?
CCI Stinger punched an incredible . 28″ group with the Savage Mk II. I wouldn’t expect it to do those groups on average, but it just goes to show that some rifles really love the slightly longer case of the Stinger. Stinger came in the most accurate of the high velocity rounds in our 2014 22LR shootout.
How long does 22 LR ammo last?
22LR, 9mm and 223 ammunition should last indefinitely, provided is kept in a airtight, in moisture proof storage. Should last you a long time if it’s kept dry.

Who makes CCI ammo?

What is 22 Stinger ammo?
Stinger .22 ammo delivers dramatic impact energy from a copper-plated, 32-grain, hollow point bullet with a teardrop cavity that expands explosively against thin-skinned varmints. CCI obtains maximum velocity with an increased powder charge, packed into nickel-plated brass cases that resist corrosion and cycle smoothly in all…
