Just ordered several boxes of cabelas. 21gr Copper Hollow-Points with velocity rated at 1850fps.

At the time of this post "Cyber-Monday" they are 10 bucks for a box of 50

17 HMR "Green" also in 16gr.

The 22's are half the weight of the "normal" 40 grainer. Should be flatter shooting, but won't hit as hard.

21gr @ 1850fps = 159.63 ft-lbs.

Standard Winchester: 36gr @ 1280 = 130.94ft-lbs

Federal Auto-Match : 40gr @1200 = 127.87 ft-lbs



Formula is :

fps x fps x gr = ???

??? / 450,450 = ft-lbs

It's been a long time, I purchased 3000 / 4000 rounds for like 9 / 10 bucks a brick, still have a brick or so.
it's that Ostrige syndrome guess I should pull my head out every now and again.
Damn I need to restock

I just picked up 250 rounds of the CCI Copper-22 for $49. Should be more than enough to sight in two .22's and use for rabbit hunting. Not sure if I'll waste it on ground squirrels yet until I see this ammo become more available (haven't hunted them since the lead ban).

I'll report back on accuracy out of a Ruger 10/22 and Marlin 60 after I get to shoot them.

BTW, the CCI Copper-22 is not (yet) listed on the list of Certified Nonlead Ammunition

And it does seem to do the job on Rabbits, even with "meh" shot placement.

I tried them. At 50 yards they were ok. But after that, the groups really start to open up. I can do much better with lead

I did that sorta gutless method the other member showed for rabbits. Backstrap and back legs and upper arm/shoulder meat. I don't recall there being parasites.

There WERE Larvae in the sinus cavity of my Archery buck this year though. But not really from same place in D15.
