Providing Quality Ammunition at the Right Price
In the early 1950s, Dick Speer set out to compete with his brother Vernon and founded Cascade Cartridge, Inc. (CCI) By 1963, CCI developed its first Mini-Mag rimfire ammunition, showing that it was more than a standard ammo manufacturers. From its headquarters in Lewiston, Idaho, it was on a mission to provide shooters with a better valued ammunition, one that was designed to get the job done right. They continued their operations for the next decade and in 1975 made a breakthrough in the rimfire cartridge, developing their Stinger load, a hypervelocity .22 LR option. In February of 2015, the company was purchased by Vista Outdoor and now operates as a subsidiary. Today, it continues to develop rounds built for specific shooting purposes.
Competition and Target Rounds Built for Accuracy
Target and competition ammo needs to be manufactured to a higher standard of consistency than any other type of ammunition. Since accuracy is important, this high level of consistency will keep you performing at your absolute best every time you shoot. When it comes to CCI competition ammo, everything about the rounds was built with a focus on this consistency, so if you can sight your weapon properly you can be sure you’ll hit the target accurately.
Their 22 Short Target Ammo uses a 29 grain lead round nose bullet and offers a 0 trajectory is sighted out at 50 yards, giving you the consistent accuracy you need. Both their Long Rifle Green Tag and Pistol Match Precision .22 Long Rifle rounds offer similar performance, but use a larger 40 grain lead round nose bullet. If you are interested in longer shots, the .22 Long Rifle Selection Ammunition may be the way to go, as it can be sighted to 75 yards and will offer a perfect 0 trajectory at this distance.
Varmint and Small Game Cartridges
When it comes to hunting varmint or certain other small game, the requirements are a bit different. You want something that will not only provide accurate performance, but also work to put your prey down with one shot if possible. If you are shooting a .17 HMR, you might consider the V-Max ammo for this job. With a 2550 ft/sec muzzle velocity, these excellent rounds can offer precision accuracy out to 100 yards, making them ideal for this sort of varmint shooting. The Maxi-Mag .22 Win Mag cartridge is another excellent option, also providing that perfect 100 yard accuracy. Of course, the .22 LR Stinger Hypervelocity ammo is one of their more famous rounds and is also ideal for varmint hunting.
If your prey is a bit larger, you might instead consider the .22 Win Mag Gamepoint ammo. These use a jacketed soft point bullet and leave the muzzle at 1875 ft/sec to provide excellent accuracy out to 100 yards. The smaller 20 grain .17 HMR Gamepoint round is another excellent choice and offers a 2375 ft/sec muzzle velocity to match the smaller size. Another great option is the .22 Long Rifle Velocitor, which relies on a copper-plated hollow point bullet that delivers greater energy at 100 yards than the typical hollow point bullet. Finally, those who want to remain quiet might use the .22 Long Rifle Subsonic HP Ammo, which uses a 40 grain lead hollow point bullet that matches the trajectory of most target loads out to 50 yards.
Specialty Rounds and Pest Control Options
Sometimes, controlling pests can be difficult and accurately hitting them can be a real challenge. This is where the .22 Long Rifle Stinger might come in handy. Using a special 32 grain, copper-plated hollow point bullet, these rounds offer great accuracy and control. If that doesn’t do the trick, you might turn to the 22 Long Rifle Shotshell Ammunition instead, which uses #12 shot to give you a unique pest control solution. Similarly, the .22 Win Mag Maxi-Mag Shotshell is a great #12 shot to consider. If you need to keep the noise level down, then you should turn to the .22 Long Rifle Quiet-22 Ammunition instead, which uses a low muzzle velocity and offers a sound level that is safe to fire without hearing protection.
Centerfire Pistol Ammo You Can Trust
Though they are best known for their various rimfire cartridges, CCI also manufactures a variety of centerfire pistol rounds that you can pick up and use in your favorite handguns. These calibers include popular options like 9mm Luger, .38 Special, .40 S&W, .44 Magnum, .45 Auto, and .45 Colt. Instead of using standard bullets, these cartridges are loaded with shotshell, with the 9mm using #12 shot and the other calibers offering #9 shot. They are sold in 10 round boxes and provide you a larger alternative for your shotshell usage.
