The CCI Velocitor REALLY WORKS!

http://www.milesfortis.com/guests/mcump/mc09.htm
The above review shows performance in two handguns and a rifle with really fine accuracy and ballistic consistency. I predict CCI had done a good one with this round. Recently, I clocked a couple of high velocity loads, the CCI mini-mag and the remington gold dot hp in a couple of my k frames getting velocities in the mid 1000 fps range with the cci and hing 900s with the remington. The Velocitor raises the ante to the mid and high 1100 fps range .

I still need to try some of those out.
I've been stuck with magnum Gold Dots until my dealer gets some of the LR in..

Ewok_Guy,

What are your overall impressions of the .22WMR Gold Dots?
I've been tossing the idea of buying a few boxes. The bullets are 50grains, right?

Snowdog,

I really do enjoy the ammo. They are the most accurate .22WMRs
I've used in my Single-Six 6.5". Expansion and penetration is at its best. I've tested them on cinder blocks, iron plates, sheet metal, wood, etc. Overall it's a very high performance bullet. Rips big holes and drives deep. I wouldn't be opposed to using it for self defense for both two and four legged predators.
I'm not sure of the weight. I'm having trouble finding information on them. And it's not written anywhere on the box. I'm fairly sure its 50.

Is the wmr gold dot, the same load as the maxi-mag TNT? If so the bullet is something just over 30 grains. It's a deep hollow point jacketed bullet that really does blow all to pieces in grocery store meat at 50 yards. they are not accurate in my long ruger where as the federal premiums, ww supremen 34 grains original ww jhps and pmc jhps are accurate.

The Remington Yellowjacket will expand way better at lower velocities...fat mushrooms have been seen at 800fps from a 1" barrel NAA mini .

Yellowjackets sometimes feed crappy in slideguns due to the odd nosecones. In a rifle, these CCI critters sound like fun but in small wheelguns, it's Remington for me.

This is the first hypervelocity round that I have found that groups well in my M-61 Winchester. It does hit a lot lower than Stingers however but accuracy comes first.

I got a box at a gun show and my dealer can't seem to get them.

I like this stuff. I took it out to the last Utah Gathering. Fired out of the rifle, I didn't feel any difference. However I noticed that the knock down and the accuracy was better at longer ranges.
Fired out of an auto pistol I noticed that I could feel more recoil. Not much, let's not be silly, but you could feel that it was a stronger load.
The things I liked best about this round...
Increased reliability in automatics.
Less wind blown.
Heavier slug.

This round is ideal for all applications from personal defense out of pocket guns, hunting, or target shooting.

If youve not tried it yet... Get it. It's not a revolution, but it is an overall improvement.

I'm looking forward to trying this out in my 617 8-3/8. Should be fun. Thanks for the info.

The stuff really does look promising. If it shoots well it may replace my current favorite the 40gr Winchester Power-Point.

It's a 40 grainer.

You can find it at www.natchezss.com by doing a search on "velocitor".

Prior to this round, the Winchester Power Point was the only 40gr hollow point. That is what you want for a hunting round. So, this is like a Win PP, but with another 200fps.

*Oops, editing: The Natchezss price is $2.92 for 50rds. I'll get a few, but am also buying QuikShok that is faster and more cool for $2.45 from 22ammo.com.

I do question using really hot ammo in a pistol though. All that extra powder is burning beyond the barrel and not doing much for you.
Because of that and the shorter range of a non-scoped pistol, I would probably go for a light weight bullet in a pistol.

Pistol 0-25yds. Rifle 50-100yds.

CCI has distributed this new round to Wal*Mart stores. I'm sure there is one near you.....

I will continue to Win Power Point in my .22 pistols, it's worked well for me. Velocitor though is an excellent step up for my .22 rifles. No brainer to make that change assuming the accuracy is there.

CCI's selling point is that the Velocitor is supposed to be the fastest 40 grainer out there.

I agree with MathewM that this round is probably wasting good propellent in a 5" pistol barrel.

I'll bet it's the ticket for a scoped Romainian trainer though. Hey, come to think of it, I think I've got one of those laying around.

I'm eager to try this stuff in my Ruger 22/45, it's got an 8" barrel, so it ought to work pretty well. Worth the price of a couple of boxes at any rate.

How about a 24" H&R M-12? Should be interesting

They are doing up over 1400 out of most rifles- 1411 out of my remington target.

They did 1192 from a 6.5 bisley and 1151 from a 6" 617

CCI Mini Mag hps generally do 1060-80 from the bisley recetly clocked 1083 from a 6" K-22 while the remington golden bullet comes in at under 1000. the velocitors show no more extreme spread than either of these loads and maintain about the same velocity at 50 yards as the standard High Velocity hps have off the muzzle.
