Question WMR .22 ultra?



Log in to see fewer ads
Hello all,

I am new to RFC and a die-hard WMR fan. I use my 882ssv primarily as the first line of defense against being overrun
by groundhogs. With the Fed. 50gr. hp and at ranges this side of
75 yards(open/wooded area) it anchors 'em everytime with any decent hit. I have had less success with the CCI +V. I understand
the CCI TNT is something I might try for extending the range and still retaining "Thor's Hammer" effect.

I also wanted to bat around the idea of an 'ultra' .22 WMR.
Something in the neighborhood of 36 - 38 gr @ 2500+. Keeping
compatability with the standard WMR would be nice. It would
require extending the case a bit and might not work in today's
WMR actions. Just a thought.

And while I am dreaming, how about a 25 gr .17 at 2500+ ?

daduke.

Thumbs up Excellent!!

Another .22WMR MAAGGNNUUMM lover!

We, too, were kicking around the idea of a 20 - 25gr. .22WMR.

Might be able to get a little extra speed outta it.

Ya figure a 30gr. "TNT" is good for 2200fps (mv).....
a 35gr gets about 2020fps (mv)....

Drop the weight to 25gr and pick up 200fps, (maybe)? Still a decent weight and the speed, close to the hummer's.

I'm still hoping that one day we'll find out what powders are used. If nobody is using Lil-Gun maybe they will catch on one day and we'll have a maggie going as fast as a hummer at twice the bullet weight and a much better BC. While I'm dreaming I also want a Savage .17BVSS and hopefully they will come out with a BVSS in .22 magnum. Then except for the weight I could have several rifles that were close in ergonomics.

Talking .22 mosquito?

We 've got the hornet and the bee so... Small but deadly (West Nile...).

While we're at it: the .17 no see um?

No offense to hmr lover's ... I'd sit one next to the wmr in the safe
if they got a little heavier in the bullet without vel. loss (sorry Ski).

Portugal,

If they ever get around to making our dream round(s) your Ruger
will not be adversely affected (if it wouldn't require case modification).

That's why I haven't been sold on the hummer.

If ya notice what they want....heavier bullet, Hollow Points....

I'm noticing that the "bulging case" problem is still an issue. Can a heavier .17hmr be manufactured without causing more over-pressure without sacrificing powder, thus speed?

What you'll end up with is a .22WMR!

Yes, no...maybe?

[edited to add:]

And now that Winchester is introducing a .22WMR "Dyna-Point", it might become even less expensive just to "plink" with the Magnum.

If Winchester comes out with Dynapoints in .22 WMR I hope my 597 likes them. The Winchester Supremes looked like a double ought buck pattern instead of a group

Back to that bullet comparison discussion. Once you go below 40 grs on a .224 bullet the BC goes to hell in a hand basket. Not to mention they drop faster than a hookers shorts.

Mike,
My 597 LS HB likes Win Supremes. Back to ammo, though, what would ya think of a 25 or 26 grain boat-tail bullet? Would that help in the velocity and B.C. areas? Plus, would it require a different twist barrel to take advantage of the lighter weight bullets? Otherwise, I'd love to get 2,600fps out of a .22wmr round. I'm sure Hornady and the gun makers do not want anything to do with such a thing after they have invested so much into that pointed BB.

Seeing as out of my 9422m that the cci maximag +v is getting 2435fps it shouldnt be to hard to get close to 2600 with a lighter bullet, might take some weight off one of the maxi mags and see what it will do.
