Most Accurate High Velocity Hollowpoints



Log in to see fewer ads
Out or curiosity I'd like to ask, in your experience what has proven to be the most consistently accurate .22 long rifle high velocity hollowpoint hunting ammunition? If you'd like, post photos of groups, tell about the rifles used, etc. If you'd like to also include information on subsonic and hyper velocity hollowpoints that you have gotten satisfactory results from for comparison, do so. This should make for some interesting and informative reading. And please don't just post something like "I hates sech an sech cuz ol'uncle Clem teld me themz weren't no gud".

My only remaining 10/22 has a Green Mountain 17" heavy taper barrel. Federal 712, Game-Shok (Game Shock?) 38gr cp hp gives dependable good accuracy of a half to 3/4 of an inch at 50 yards. Stated velocity is 1280fps.

Yes, I know the weight and listed velocity are the same as the red box AE22, but the two round from that barrel shoot very differently. AE22 behave like a federal equivalent of RGB from that barrel; 60% of rounds will land in an OK group, and there will be 40% fliers with five shot groups always exceeding an inch at 50 yards.

I like the CCI Tactical and when the M 22 first came out it was surprisingly consistent , but then they added too much sawdust.

But the CCI tactical, was/Is better than most.

By far the most accurate 22 HV ammo I have ever shot is the first generation Winchester Power Points. The box with the red and orange stripes on it. That first generation was made in Austraila. I have shot some 1/2" groups with it at 100 yards with my 40X sporter. I have several targets shot at 100 yards with 4 shots touching but the 5th shot always seems to shoot just a little off.

Eley HV hollow points are very good also.

Recently I shot 50 rounds at 200 yards with the Winchester 1st gen. Power Points. The one shot off to the left is a Remington yellowjacket. I shot 20 rounds of that at 200 yards and that is the only one that hit the paper. So I used the paper to shoot the win power points.

RWS HVHP's

Once upon a time, 25 years ago, Winchester Power Points were really good.
The Eley are good too, but I have found the lead to be very hard and have had expansion issues.

About three years ago, using Winchester 40 grain plated Hyper Velocity HP, I fired five, five-shot groups at fifty yards using a reproduction Model 52 Winchester sporter and a Ruger 77/22 stainless/ laminated. The five groups form the Winchester averaged .62" and the Ruger, .68".

Other Winchester ammos (five) didn't do as well; second best was PP HP at 1.16" and .74". By comparison, respective groups using CCI SV were .60" and .74".

In my group shooting with various ammos, the 36 and 40 grain Minimags each averaged exactly the same at .78", not far behind CCI SV and Winchester Hyper Velocity.

Without hitting a small creature or facsimile a la Paul Harrell, can one really measure hollow point expansion?

Seems like accuracy can be measured on paper, but expansion?

Modeling clay was my poor man's ballistic gel, albeit a more dense medium.

Sorry Phil, back to most accurate.

In my guns at least the Mini Mag 36 gr. HP are the most accurate. If we exclude hollow points, I'd say the Aguila 40 gr. HV are a bit more accurate.
