CCI Std Velocity Target

What is the opinion on this ammo? How does it shoot for you? I hope it is good I have 2,200 rounds if it.

Iím not familiar with standard velocity target but the regular CCI standard velocity has been hit or miss. Iíve been buying 500 round boxes and there has been no consistency from box to box. A box will either shoot great or average. I havenít used any that shot poorly but the inconsistency from lot to lot makes me hesitant to buy more.

It says "target" on the boxes, but this is a misnomer (or sales gimmick) because target ammo it's not. As stated above, it is too inconsistent to be a good target ammo...depending of course on what one's standards are. It's a good plinking/hunting ammo for small game. I like it for those purposes and have two cases set back for squirrel hunting and for use in my older rimfires.

A few weeks ago I bought two 100 round trays on the recommendation of a member of our pistol team. Ran it through a 10-22, TCR22, and a Remington 597. No FTF, FTE, or duds and anywhere from 50 to75 rounds from each gun all produced a single 2 inch hole at 50 yards with only a front bag rest. Based on those results I bought 3 sleeves, 1500 rounds, yesterday as they were $5.99 / 100 at the LGS. I shoot informally for the fun and I don't compete but still enjoy accuracy and reasonably sized groups.

If you are asking about CCI part number 0032, I use it in my CZ 452 Trainer and almost get 1 MOA at 50 yards. It is my ďgo toĒ ammo for target shooting.

32 is the number. The packaging is not showing up on the website. If it is a good as the older 32 it should shoot very well out of several of my rifles.

CCI SV is very good ammo in my opinion, I've shot several thousands of rounds with it. At 50-100 yards it consistently shoots Sub-MOA 10 round groups with my 10/22T.

Every once in a while there's a "flyer"; is it the ammo, wind or me? No idea. I can't see the point of spending more money on "match grade" ammo, when I'm already getting such good performance out of CCI SV. YMMV.

If I'm shooting 40 yards or less, I use Blazers. Same ammo as CCI SV, just in a HV speed. Not quite as consistent, but close enough for my purposes, and $6/brick less money.

CCI SV? Inexpensive 22lr not intended for benchrest competition.
9 inches of vertical spread at 200 yards for 50 shots
3 inches at 100 yards, 1 inch at 50 yards, 1/3 inch at 25 yards.
I use it for small game at less than 30 yards.

So CCI/SV in the 100rnd in the plastic case is 0032 and I have notice it is usually 1 cent more per shot than CCI/SV #0035 in the 50bx. Since they have the same fps I guessed it was just a marketing thing with the plastic 100rnd box with the word TARGET made larger/visible.

But I really do not know and I'm glad to see this post and hope to see other responses.

Although I don't have a link, CCI has stated that the SV paper 50's are intended for the International Market. The reason for this is highly likely due to recycling. For instance you know that no European Manufacture of 22 rimfire uses Polystyrene plastic (number 06) in their 22 packaging unlike CCI, Remington and Winchester. Eley has a plastic 50's 22 package but it is HDPE (number 02) as are the hangers in other European paper 50's boxs, also HDPE (number 02)
plastic.

Here's a link to Germany's policy regarding PS or Polystyrene.

https://www.plasticsinsight.com/resi...s/polystyrene/

Quote:
In certain countries such as Germany, there is a law that requires the manufactures to completely take the responsibility of recycling or disposing of any PS packaging material they sell.
Quote:
Disposal problems related to this material and its negative scrap value may also hamper the growth of the market.
I currently do not have any paper 50 CCI SV's. Do these have Polystyrene Hangers inside their box's? If so I'm surprised CCI gets away with importing that into Germany?

I have two cases of the CCI SV purchased several years ago....paper boxes, they do have the word "Target" printed on the boxes along with 0035, and they do have the plastic hangers.

As JAIA indicates, the vertical dispersion (due to velocity spread) on this ammo makes consistent (or average) sub MOA groups at distance improbable. Sure, you may get the occasional group.....

This is my go-to plinking and small game ammo and has proven very useful for that and for shooting in the older rimfires where high speed ammo is not a good idea. But again, most folks would not consider it to be target grade ammo, but then again, since the word "target" as being used here is relative and semantics being what it is, then I suppose you could call it a target ammo.

It is good ammo for what it was designed for.

I plan on using this for informal 25 and 50 yard shooting as well as an occasional squirrel. I had Cabelas points to burn and their brand selection has really decreased. CCI SV has always shot good from several of my rifles so little risk in purchasing this.
Thanks

For .4 a shell 1 inch at 50 yards is pretty good for most of us. Does it shoot as well as SK rifle match in my guns? No, but for those of us on a budget it's good plinking ammo. I've pulled some 1/2 inch groups at 50 with it and 1.5 inch groups at 100. For me and my Ruger American I'm pretty happy with that. Dont expect tenex for thunderbolt prices and your good.

I shot it this morning out of my Marlin 60. At 25 yards off a bench and front bags, 5 10 shot groups. 3 groups covered with a dim and 2 groups with a nickle. I am very pleased.
