Anyone tried the Widener's 22cal 62 gr Lead Core projectiles?

Simple question. Anyone tried these bullets? How do they punch paper and do they fragment?

They aren't very accurate.

I think they are Armscor overruns or something. None of them weigh 62 gr. on the nose. They are sometimes 1/2 grain either way -/+.

They're ok for plinking, but that's about it.

OK, then perhaps I should just stick with the 55 grain ones. I know that those are good.

Have you tried the SS109 ones that they have?

Thanks

I think they are listed as being 60 grainers. They shot pretty darn well for me at steel plates at 200 yards. For about 8 cents a bullet not a bad deal.

Sorry, my mistake, they are 62 grainers.

Darn it, now I have conflicting info. Though I'm getting them for plinking anyway and they are cheap enough.

Just buy them. I shoot them at cans, but don't count on getting great groups on paper with them.

What kind of groups are you getting? Are we talking 1.5 MOA or 4 MOA?

Usually around 1" to 1.25" groups at 100 yds. Not good enough for Groundhog hunting, but it will kill a Coyote.

Oh, that's good enough accuracy for me.

BTW, I got my order of them in, they are Prvi Partisan bullets, since they are sealed in the factory box.

As has been my typical experience with Prvi Partisan, the box is very durable, but the bags inside are not, so instead of getting 10 bags of 500 bullets I got 2 bags of 500 bullets, a box of 4,000 loose bullets in the box, and 8 empty bags. At least the box held up just fine.
