I saw the velocity on the 40 grain CCI 22 long rifle velocitor ammo. as being 1435 fps. I've never really believed a lot of the higher velocities listed, but yesterday at the range I chrono'd one and it came out at 1406 fps. at 53 degrees temperature.

I'm still not sure to believe it or not. Did they come up with another powder....or is it a way of compressing it more????

Which would lead to my second question. Do they have something souped up for my 22 mag...now that I'm thinking about it????

The Velocitor is a hyper velocity loading, not sure if it's a compressed load or not, I've never taken one apart, but that might be interesting to do. Aguila offers a hyper velocity loading I believe, also Remington with their Viper and Yellowjacket rounds. I've found accuracy to be somewhat spotty with my guns, but your experience could be totally different. If you're interested I'd give them a try and see what you come up with, you just might get lucky. I've heard of quite a few people finding them very accurate in their particular guns.

I have had very good luck with the Vipers in both my Buckmark and single-shot Marlin model 15... I laid in a case of them!

Almost everyone has a hyper-velocity load, CCI 'Stingers' being the first to claim it, I believe. I like the CCI's, too. The oddity on the Stingers is they have a longer than normal case (longer than LR cases.)

I have been firing the 22 LR Velocitors through my 981TS with pretty good accuracy. The squirrels are getting pretty thin around here!

I also have have good success shooting the CCI 22 mag load # 0022 out of my 983.

Here's some info from the CCI site comparing the 22 LR load # 0047 and the 22 mag load #0022.

They are a bit more expensive but I plink with bulk Federal 40gr and use the Velocitors when hunting small game. It only takes a few shots and a quick adjustment to compensate for the differences.

I use the Velocitor and have good accuracy out of my 39a and my Henry. I don't know about the powder or the loadings, only that they work well on medium size critters like coyote, fox, racoon, and badger. I don't have a crono yet so I don't have any data on it. I have used them on coyote with good results out at 70 yds or so, I wouldn't want to go much past that distance. They hit hard and expand very well at close range and longer shots out at 100 - 125 yds still have a good thump on jack rabbits and stop them quickly where as regular or standard velocity hp may take 2 or three shots on jacks.

I also use the CCI V-Max 30 gr. 22 mag ammo, it is very accurate in my 882ss, it is advertised at 2200 fps and a lot of shooters claim they are getting closer to 2300 out of them. I do know at 165 yds they will dump a jackrabbit in a heap, then just poor contents out in a red soup. I did hear they were using a new powder for the 22 mag loadings with the 30 gr. bullets. Hornady and CCI are both making the same load with Hornady using a red tip and CCI black. I switch back and forth between the two and not any difference I can tell, my rifle stays on zero with either one. Same with the CCI 30 gr. HP+V but it is just slightly less accurate but still better than others I have used.

One company was offering a 22 mag 30 gr. V-Max adv. at 2350 fps. If I remember correctly they were called Down-under guns and ammo in Australia. They claimed their load was a new type powder compressed to the max pressure loading. I never could find it available and always sold out and back ordered. It was priced accordingly at around 20.00 per 50 rounds and that was 2 years ago.
