What is it? A .22 Blackout?
.22 mag with the brass shortened?
22 Magnum brass is a larger diameter than 22 RF. The Magnum uses a normal 22 cal. bullet like a center fire. The bullet shown appears to have a driving band of 22 cal. with a reduced base and bore riding forward ogive. Just might be an accurate little rascal. Cool.
More suited for the old 22 Jet. Yeah that's the ticket 22 Jet Blackout handgun. Maybe?
I wonder if Aguila makes a 60grain short with a pretty, pointy bullet like that. I have a Ruger 10/22 with a fast twist bull barrel, and with the Aguila 60 grain subsonics, it's astonishingly accurate, and a pleasure to shoot. Haven't seen that heavy, subsonic ammo in the stores for a long time now... good thing I put back a few bricks when they were available.
You'd definitely need to build the gun for it... I wonder what that would look like...?
Not so many years ago (before the Panics) the manufacturers were happy to sell primed rimfire brass. That projectile looks to be turned bronze. As such, it is lighter than lead so the bullet pictured is probably the same 40 gr. even though it is longer.Probably a significant improvement, trajectory wise, but can you imagine the PITA turning those little bullets?
"PITA turning those little bullets"Unless you have a CNC screw machine or some such. Modern automated machinery will spit those out all day, no problem.
You mean as long as you have someone else to do it! :-)
Well, yes, but "someone else" could mostly be a robot in this case. This Is The Future, after all!... Soon, all working-class humans will be redundant, and the alien overlords will be free to proceed with their grand plans!
