CCI Velocitor vs Aguila Interceptor vs Winchester Hyper Velocity

Proof the CCI Velocitor Hp is the Fastest most accurate by tightest shot groups . Note the Aguila is not a hollow point .I am not a fan of foreign made ammo. CCI & Winchester made in the USA


Facts remains "the CCI Velocitor is the fastest most accurate 40 grain "Hollow Point" on the Market.

Hard hitting deep penetration in Rifle & Hand gun.

"CCI Velocitor is the fastest of the five 22 LR loads classified as Small Game ammunition. The heavy 40 grain hollow point bullet is driven to 1435 feet per second velocity, which puts it between the high velocity and hyper velocity CCI loads. The Velocitor features a unique copper plated hollow point bullet that was derived from Gold Dot bullet technology even though it looks nothing like the 40 grain Gold Dot bullet loaded in the Speer Gold Dot Short Barrel 22 WMR load. I've never shot this particular load before, so I was very interested to see how it performed.Following the previously established test
protocol, I used a Ruger 10/22 as the test rifle and all shots were taken at a range of 25 yards.

I had a little problem with the chronograph catching the velocity of all test shots due to the angle of the sun. I ended up taking ten test shots to capture baseline velocity and all shots settled into a group of just less than .7 inches. I usually only shoot five shots for the group. This load appears to be sufficiently accurate for small game hunting.
After swapping the Clear Ballistics gel block for the target, I ran four test shots into the 6"x6"x16" clear gel. The high-speed camera captured four very impressive temporary expansion cavities. Even though two of our four test shots exited the gel block and were not recovered, it certainly appears that all four expanded uniformly across a narrow band of velocities between 1297 and 1317 feet per second.

My Thoughts on this Test
High velocity with controlled expansion and deep penetration are all great things to find in a small game hunting load. The accuracy of this load in my 10/22 was also "good enough" for the intended purpose. It may not deliver tack driving accuracy, but it will most assuredly ruin a rabbit or squirrel's day.

Final Verdict
Brick-Worthy This is certainly a small game hunting load to buy by the brick. It delivers exceptional down range energy and uniform expansion. A video recap of the test is included below."

It took almost 15 minutes to quit laughing when I seen "Hiccup 22's" chronograph. Who made that? MATTEL? Looks like it came from Toy's 'R Us.


Never have I seen ANY critter out in the woods where I hunt with my .22 rifle that has a body made of ballistic gelatin. Squirrels and snowshoe hares have bones inside their hide, not Alpo, and they don't wear tin body armor.
But if I ever run into a nasty mean, rogue 2 X 6, I'll now know what ammunition will go right on through one of those suckers!




But, you'll most likely get at least ONE person to agree with your copied data.

Has any one here tried the Ruger 10/22 custom LaserMax laser mounted directly on the forend of the rifle ? I have night vision on two of my 10 /22 rifle and was thinking this laser might help light up a target at 60 yards in low light much like an IR Flash Light would I know a green laser works good for this but not sure about red being as bright .I know Green is the best in both day and night as red is hardest to see in bright day light. Just thinking is it worth the $99.00 ?
The only issue when using a laser device for aiming purposes on a firearm is that once you sight it at a particular yardage, your point of impact regarding any target that falls before or beyond that distance will require you to compensate via guesswork; if your new target's farther away than your zeroed distance your shot using the laser dot will be too high, and at a closer distance your shot will be too low.

Lasers are good for typical self defense distances, like those found inside your home. On one of my carry pieces I have a red laser that I have zeroed at 20 feet, and at that short distance a few feet either way in distance from the target isn't going to matter much. But if I were at a greater distance I would much rather rely on irons or red dot optic sight over a laser, of any color.

Thanks BRR for taking the time to compile and share the above information :)

Good lord! I see sometimes, ignorance has NO BOUNDS. Nobody, in their right mind, would use a laser on a rifle for any long distance, lasers are used on shotguns and handguns for distances no farther than 50 to 75 FEET!

Maybe I'll run into a "snarling beef bone" some day though, so I'll need to dig out some better performing Aguila .22 rimfire.
