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 long high-velocity ammunition is a product from the company's extensive line of competition, plinking and target ammunition. The competition, plinking and target 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 outstanding value – all qualities that make this ammunition a perfect choice for anyone, from backyard shooters to serious competitors.
That said each box of CCI .22 long high-velocity ammunition, as noted, contains 100 non-corrosive, brass-cased rimfire cartridges. Each cartridge contains a 29 gr copper-plated round nose projectile, which consistency as well as a respectable muzzle velocity. In fact, this particular load is capable of producing muzzle velocities that have been observed to travel at speeds of up to 1,215 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.

While its not much different in length than the Long Rifle my Ruger 10/22's dont like it much. Once chambered it fires OK but it has a bit of trouble cycling out of the mag on my auto loaders
On the other hand my Romainian Training Rifle and my OLD Rem Target Master bolt action eats it up
If your using a bolt action or single shot this is excellent ammo but if your using a autoloader it's likely not going to be a round your gun digest well
I personally wonder if the 29gr bullet my be part of why it don't want to cycle right but either way be it bullet weight or overall length is dont do well in auto's
In a bolt or single shot it it quite accurate and reliable
If you have one of those them you will find this ammo suprisingly accurate
