22LR Ballistics Chart for 27 different cartridges
Our 22LR ammo ballistics chart will give you the bullet ballistic coefficient, muzzle energy, muzzle velocity and bullet drop of 27 different .22LR rimfire cartridges. Cartridges Abbreviated By Manufacturer: (C) = CCI; (H) =Hornady; (R) = Remington; (W) = Winchester
Lets compare the CCI 22LR Stinger Ballistics to the Remington Golden Bullet 22LR Ballistics!
22LR Bullet Weight: Weight of the bullet in grains, there are 7000 grains in one pound; the abbreviation for grains is gr. There are 437.5 grains in one ounce. The bullet weight of CCI Stinger Ammunition is 32 grains; therefore its bullet weight is .07 ounces. The bullet weight of Remington Golden Bullet Ammunition is 36 grains; therefore its bullet weight is .08 ounces.
22LR Ballistics Coefficient (BC): The ballistic coefficient of a bullet is the drag factor of a bullet. The number is in the form of a decimal. The higher the number the lower the drag of the bullet. It's basically a measure of how streamlined the bullet is. The Bullet Ballistic Coefficient for CCI Stinger Ammo is .084 compared to the BC of the Remington Golden Bullet of .125. The Remington Golden Bullet 36 gr has less drag than the CCI Stinger Ammo. Reference the Bullet Ballistic Coefficient Chart above.
22LR Muzzle Velocity: 22lr muzzle velocity is the speed with which a bullet leaves the barrel measured in feet per second (FPS). As a rule the faster the muzzle velocity the shorter the bullets time in flight and there for a flatter trajectory and less drop. The muzzle velocity of the CCI Stinger Ammo is 1,640 fps compared to the 1,280 fps of the Remington Golden Bullet 36 gr. The 22LR muzzle velocity has a lot to do with the weight of the bullet measured in grains, which is why we see hyper velocity bullets weighing in at 30 gr -32 gr. If you look at the 22lr ballistics table above you will see how the muzzle velocity of 22lr diminishes at 100 yards and 200 yards.
22LR Muzzle Energy: 22lr muzzle energy is measured in foot pounds to determine the destructive potential of the bullet. The 22lr muzzle energy is the kinetic energy of the bullet as it leaves the muzzle. Generally the heavier and faster the bullet the more damage it will do to the intended target. As you can see the CCI Stinger Ammo has a higher initial muzzle energy but at 200 yards the Remington Golden Bullet 36 gr has a much higher kinetic energy and more killing power at that distance. Look at the 22lr ballistics table to compare the muzzle energy at various distances.
22LR Bullet Drop Chart: Shows how 22lr CCI Ballistics, 22lr Winchester Ballistics and 22lr Remington Golden Bullet Ballistics compare to one another in the bullet drop comparison at various distances. With a rifle zeroed at 50 yards this 22lr bullet drop chart shows how each cartridge compares at distances of 75 yards, 100 yards, 150 yards and 200 yards.
