Has anyone actually chronographed the CCI 50gr Gold Dot? I think the mfg's claim is 1525 fps. Federal's 50gr claims 1650fps but in chrony tests actually only does around 1450 - 1550. Anybody know?

Gold Dot

I finally found a box of CCI 50 grain gold dot. It was fun to watch pieces of the 2x10 that my target was stapled to go flying. They may be slow but they do some damage at 75 yards. Nice and accurate too.

I knew there was a post, somewhere, that mentioned the velocities of several .22WMR loads.

If the link doesn't work (sometimes I scru it up ;) )....... on 06-07-02 there is a thread titled "22 Magnum Velocities" by Gunn Docc, in the .22 Ammunition Forum.

This was before we had our own .22WMR Forum.

Gunn Docc has the "Gold Dot" included in his list.

I never had the chance to see what kind of "damage" the Gold Dot does, but, it does make a very satisfying "TH-WACK" sound when it hits the berm, behind the target sheet.
