New Winchester Xpediter .22 LR Hyper Velocity

Winchester announced their second .22 LR “Hyper Velocity” round. The Xpediter round has similar performance to the new non-toxic Winchester SUPER-X .22 Long Rifle. It pushes a 32 grain lead hollow point bullet at 1,640 fps.

The original Xpediter

I am not sure if this round is identical to the original that used to be produced by Winchester many years ago.
[No doubt its a shrewd marketing plan of Winchester to dole out individual press releases over a period of time instead of announcing everything at once … ]

    The original Expediter was a 29grain bullet, Copper Hollow point. It came in the silver box as above.
    i believe it was made for only a short time. It may have been too hot. The velocity was around 1700-1800. I'm not sure how fast. I believe at the tine it may have been faster than the CCI Stinger, which in 1984 was advertized as the fastest 22L.r. cartridge available. I have a brick of C.C.I Stingers & the receipt for them in July 1984. They were $1.50 per box.
    I also have a Brick & a couple of boxes of the Winchester Expediter.
    Hope this may help.

    People say it was too hot, if you had a good quality firearm it was not. I still have two bricks of the old/original stuff. I bought 4 when they stopped production. They are marked "Sale $8.88"
