Maybe Winchester is making it as a "cheaper bulk" ammo and a "less powerful" alternative to the other WMRs. Kinda like where a full WMR might be a little too much, but, ya want something a little more than an LR.
The "Dyna-Point" is only "plated" not "jacketed". I guess so that it will not ricochet as much?
I didn't do a very good job of stating my last question.
It's big business tring to guess what the pubic will buy and then convencing them that they need it. Winchester has made two runs of the old .22WRF cartridge which has a lead 45 grain bullet. My question is do you think this Dyna-Point mag. (I've not seen one) might be a modified .22 WRF bullet in the .22 WMR case?
I think Winchester might be the only manufacturer, currently, that is set up to produce a 45 grain .224 lead bullet.(?) Might be an untapped market for a low cost .22 WRM and they already have an advantage over the other manufactures.
Everything comes down to the profit line. With enough .22 mag rifles in use it might fly. Look at the bulk .22 LR sales.
