Cascade Cartridge Inc., commonly known as CCI, is an ammunition manufacturer based in Lewiston, Idaho that specializes in rimfire ammunition, centerfire handgun ammunition and primers. Established by Dick Speer, brother of Vernon Speer, in 1951 as a steady source for primers, CCI evolved quickly into the full-scale operation dedicated to providing shooters with a wide variety of ammunition targeted for specific applications that it is today.
Now, more than 60 years later, CCI is a subsidiary of Alliant Techsystems – a conglomerate that owns the Federal Cartridge Company as well as many other high-profile ammunition manufacturers while also holding the production contract for the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP) in Independence, Missouri. This partnership furthered CCI's ability to provide shooters with innovative new products marked by their consistent performance and unyielding reliability. Moreover, it has placed the company among the leaders in the rimfire ammunition industry. With ties like that, CCI is a name that shooters can trust.
CCI .22 LR Velocitor ammunition is a product from the company's extensive line of small game ammunition. The small game lineup offers a variety of rimfire loads in several different calibers that utilize the innovative bullet technologies developed by CCI over the course of its storied history. Each product in this particular line is marked by its consistent high performance, uncanny accuracy and devastating performance on small game – all qualities that make this ammunition a perfect choice for small game hunters.
That said each box of CCI .22 LR Velocitor ammunition, as noted, contains 50 non-corrosive, brass-cased rimfire cartridges. Each cartridge contains a specialized 40 gr copper-plated hollow point projectile, which is marked by its high accuracy and extraordinary terminal ballistics. Each cartridge features a special hollow point cavity design that was derived from Speer's Gold Dot® technology and retains virtually 100 percent bullet weight. And as this is a hypervelocity load, it is also features 22 percent greater energy at 100 yards than other high-speed hollow point loads. In fact, this particular load is capable of producing muzzle velocities that have been observed to travel at speeds of up to 1,435 fps. All CCI ammunition is manufactured using premium raw materials and newly manufactured brass cases in the United States at their main manufacturing facility in Lewiston, Idaho.
