Cutting Edge CuRx family of .22LR bullets are machined solid copper projectiles for precision long-range shooting allowing to push the capabilities of the humble .22LR in extreme long-range competitions. Besides the projectiles, Cutting Edge also sells reloading dies and primed cases for reloading .22LR ammunition with their CuRx bullets. However, not everyone is able or willing to get into handloading and for those, Aria Ballistic Engineering is now offering .22LR ammunition loaded with the Cutting Edge CuRx bullets.

Cutting Edge announced the availability of ABE .22LR ammunition loaded with their CuRx bullets via the following post on their social media pages:
So many of you have asked about our 22lr CuRx line being available in loaded ammo.
Our friends at @ariaballisticengineering are helping to make that dream a reality.
They currently have our 32gr and 42gr CuRx 22lr Projectiles available in loaded ammo on their website as their 22 ELR line. They will also be working with load development of the 50gr for the fast twist rifles.
Check out their website below and enjoy shooting our CuRx projectiles without the handloading!
And here is how Aria Ballistic Engineering describe their ELR .22LR ammo loaded with CuRx bullets:
.22 Long Rifle (ELR) – This is ultra-premium long range ammunition loaded to precise standards. All our 22LR (ELR) ammo utilize Cutting Edge Bullet’s lathe turned copper projectiles and Aria’s in house powder blends for the highest velocities and accuracy possible!
Aria Ballistic Engineering .22LR ammo loaded with 32-grain CuRx bullets is listed on the company’s website at $30 per box of 25 rounds. Ammunition loaded with this lighter-weight flat nose CuRx bullet has an overall length identical to the standard .22LR and can be fired in barrels with the standard 1:16″ twist rate. The advertised muzzle velocity of this round is 1,725 fps.
The .22LR ammo loaded with 42-grain spitzer CuRx bullets can be purchased from the Aria Ballistic Engineering website for $34.5 per box of 25 rounds. These cartridges are longer than the standard .22LR and must be single loaded or used with longer magazines. Also, the long bullets require barrels with a faster 1:10″ twist rate. The muzzle velocity of this load is 1,450 fps.
Yes, I know, at $1.2 and $1.38 per round, these cartridges are extraordinarily expensive for .22LR ammo. However, the results when using this ammunition are expected to be extraordinary too. If you have loaded and used the Cutting Edge CuRx bullets, let us know what the cost of reloading was per round and what results have you achieved with these bullets. Is it worth getting into reloading .22LR or the loaded ammo offered by Aria Ballistic Engineering is the way to go?
