When it comes to shooting suppressed, few combinations can match a good .22 LR suppressor and subsonic ammo for quiet fun. If you agree you will be pleased to note there is a new load from CCI Ammunition, Clean-22 Suppressor. This new .22 LR load uses an advanced polymer bullet coating to reduce lead fouling inside a suppressor by up to 60 percent. This is a big deal to anyone who has ever cleaned a .22 LR suppressor. The exclusive feature allows much easier suppressor cleaning and maintenance, as well as enhancing accuracy. It features a 45-grain bullet at an advertised velocity of 1,000 fps. CCI’s respected priming and consistent propellant charges ensure this new load will cycle reliably through any suppressed firearm.
CCI Rimfire Product Manager Dan Compton had this to say, “Clean-22 ammunition provides an advantage because its polymer coating replaces the wax that is traditionally applied to .22 LR ammunition. The goal of traditional wax is to protect the barrel of the gun from buildup of lead or copper created as bullets pass through it. But this wax does not totally encapsulate the bullet, so metal and wax deposits eventually build up, and the gun needs to be cleaned. However, because the Clean-22 polymer coating completely encapsulates the bullet, it does a better job protecting the barrel from dirt and buildup than wax. The cleaner results are quite impressive.”
CCI Ammunition’s new Clean-22 comes packaged in CCI’s new easy-pour bulk pack cartons. If you are a fan of .22 LR rimfires you will want to check out this new load. Shipments of this new product have begun to arrive on dealer’s shelves, so it is available.
