Is this a barrel, or a rifle? If a barrel, what does it go on, and how?

It is a Ruger rifle.

Anyone else wish they would make a .22 Magnum "Velocitor"?

I am one that wishes we could have a vast array of ammo to choose from..

However... My Mag Research loves the CCI 40g Pills. I know the effective range of my capabilities
& damage they can cause.. so I have stocked up on ammo...

Saw a good article:

https://www.americanhunter.org/artic...hunting-loads/

It looks like the Gamepoint might be the one for me:
"What stands out about this load is its terminal performance. Constructed more like a big-game bullet than one for varmints, the recovered bullet weighed 39.9 grains—virtually 100 percent weight retention. Moreover, the bullet, which measured 0.545-inch in diameter, created a large wound cavity and penetrated deep. For coyotes and other large nuisance species within the .22 Magnum’s realm, there’s none better."

I like the idea of deep penetration, mushrooming, and weight retention. I wonder if the same bullet in maybe a 36-38 grain loading would go a little faster, and expand a little more, but keep the other characteristics. Oh well, we'll take what we can get, I guess.

CCI makes a 35gr Gamepoint it is A22 magnum.

I'd like to see these two in a head to head comparison:
speed
penetration
expansion
accuracy
weight retention


Thanks for the heads up.

I actually started a new article on the rifles, so as not to clog up this AMMO thread.

I think with anything less than a centerfire, you are better off using whatever your rifle shoots best. People are killing coyotes with sub 50fpe .22 & .25 pcp air rifles within a reasonable distance.

Great Article.

I was surprised that they didn't get good accuracy with the CCI 40g HP. Those are the ones that my rifle loves. I have shot the 30g Hornadys, but not enough to speak on them... I've always heard lots of good hype about them...

As far as factory rnds, I like the 35 gr gamepoint for fox, but prefer (as does my rifle) the 40gr Aguila for coyotes.. IMO, there is no perfect bullet! But I load a 45gr speer spitz for my CZ512 mag that manages to get a little over 1700 fps. This is a long bullet for the 22 magum! it is also way to tough for expansion @ mag velocity.. It is however deadly accurate in my rifle & to my way of thinking,if I can get this long heavy bullet spining in the chest cavity of a coyote it will do some major damage! If not,its still gonna hit where I aim & go all the way thru like a FMJ.
