Thanks for the rundown. I've shot .22 since the early 50's, but I had never heard of mini-mag before. (The guy at Walmart said they were magnums. Apparently he hadn't run into them either.) I'm not certain I had seen CCI until recently. The small towns I grew up in had Peters, Remington, Federal and Winchester from shorts through LR.NativeTexan said:Wow, haven't been around rimfires long? CCI has been producing "Minimag" (.22 LR hollowpoint, 38 grain high velocity) ammo since I was a kid.
