Varmint hunters that use 22 WMR now have a new choice from CCI Ammunition. The new CCI Maxi-Mag Clean-22 .22WMR ammo uses a 46 gr. Segmented Hollow Point (SHP) bullet designed to transfers as much energy to the target as possible. To reduce the amount of cleaning you have to do afterwards, the bullet has a polymer coating that CCI claims greatly reduces copper and lead fouling in your barrel, without leaving any residues.
Below is CCI’s Product Release:
LEWISTON, Idaho – October, 2020 – The Clean-22 coating technology that made rimfire clean is now being used to extend the range and power of 22 WMR. New CCI Maxi-Mag Clean-22 Segmented Hollow Point (SHP) uses an exclusive polymer bullet coating to greatly reduce copper and lead fouling in the barrel—without leaving a residue. Shipments of this new product have begun to arrive at dealers.
The 46-grain SHP bullet splits into three equal-size pieces on impact, tripling the number of wound channels. The polymer bullet coating allows this separation at much lower velocities and longer distances than a conventional copper jacket. The bullet’s overall geometry is optimized for accuracy, and dependable CCI priming and propellant provide flawless cycling through semi-automatics and all 22 WMR firearms.
“New Maxi-Mag Clean-22 SHP is the industry’s only segmenting hollow-point bullet in 22 WMR.” said CCI Product Line Manager Dan Compton. “Personally, I like its Olive Drab Green color on the bullet which gives it a hunting look, and I can’t wait to hear stories and see photos from our happy customers who use this new magnum rimfire round on prairie dog towns, in the squirrel woods and for their fur trapping efforts.”
