New CCI Loads

I was in Bass Pro the other day and there was plenty of .22 ammo, which means now they’re caught up, makers have time to think up new ideas. The new CCI Mini-Mag Segmented HP combines the popular Mini-Mag traits — reliability, velocity, accuracy and flat trajectory — with a 40-gr. segmented bullet designed to break into three equal-sized parts on impact. I shot some and it’s accurate and effective. It’s great on small game. The .17 HMR VNT has a 17-gr. bullet with an extremely thin jacket and tiny polymer tip for accuracy. I’m betting it’d be explosive on varmints. The .22 comes in 100-round boxes while the .17 is in a 50-count pack. For more info:
