cci stingers



Log in to see fewer ads
I bought some stingers to try. I am going to chrono them on Sunday if I get the time. I will post the results in this thread after I do. I will be using a Marlin Model 60SB with a Leupold 2-7x28 RF scope ,ATI Dragunov stock and a Versa-Pod Bi-Pod. I will do some accuracy testing at 50 yards but don't put much stock in these results as I'm not that great of a shot and I will be shooting from a field position.

I plan on attempting to take a few squirrels from @ 100 yards with them when the season opens on Monday.

Try also CCI Velocetors. Same case size as a regular LR not longer like Stinger.

I do good with them after I purchased a Green Mountian barrel for my 10-22 which is designed to shoot the Stinger round.

Why does it say on the CCI web page that I can't use Stingers in a match barrel? Is it because of the velocity? If so, then Quik-shok would be unsafe too?

I'm trying to see if I can safely use Quik-shoks in my Marlin 7000.

Thanks!

The Stinger case is 0.1" longer than a normal case. In a short chamber, like a match chamber, the case will actually run into the rifling of the barrel. The case will be crimped by the rifling and excessive pressures can result. The warning label on Stingers says to use them only in ANSI chambers.

In cz chambers the rifling engages the bullet, not the case,however it is close though-Chamber a stinger/QK and see what happens-dont shoot it though,then you see where the rifling is!!!

OIS,

I'll save him the trouble.

Here's a pic showing Stingers that have been chambered in my CZ Varmint (top) and my Biathlon Basic.


The BB's match chamber does end at the case but after taking the chance of damaging the chamber I shot one to examine the case. The expanded case had no indications of hitting the rifling.

I wouldn't recommend shooting them for an extended period of time but if it's all I had on hand I wouldn't hesitate.

I think that the warning is for semi auto's. The chance of having a Stinger fire out of battery is very possible due to the rifling engraving the bullet and not allowing the bolt to fully close.

Tim, I always have good luck with stingers in my 60. Their faster than velocetors and hit harder. I haven't found a round yet to give any problems in my 60
