The .22 LR ammo drought is slowly easing
I was able to buy some CCI Velocitor ammo yesterday.
I found it at Mid-South Shooters Supply.
Velocitor is great fun for shooting potatoes and apples. Chunks fly up into the air and then rain down for up to five seconds. I like when I have a new shooter and I want them to experience how much fun it is to shoot reactive targets.
It may not be the best choice for self defense. I don't think it penetrates very far and I have had some that were a little "sticky" on extraction. Absolute, stone-cold reliability in function trumps a few extra feet-per-second when talking self defense.
