Clean-22 — CCI Rimfire Ammo with Polymer-Coated Bullets

CCI Clean 22 Bullets

In 2019 CCI introduced a new type of .22 LR rimfire ammunition. CCI’s innovative Clean-22 Ammo features polymer-coated bullets. This is actually a pretty important development. The bullet coating on CCI’s Clean-22 ammo provides three main benefits:

1. Copper fouling in the barrel is greatly reduced.
2. Lead fouling in the barrel is greatly reduced.
3. Lead build-up in suppressors is reduced by 60-80%.

CCI now offers three versions of Clean-22 rimfire ammunition: High Velocity (#944CC, 40gr, 1235 FPS MV), Subsonic (#934CC, 40gr, 1070 FPS MV), and Suppressor (#980CC, 45gr, 1000 FPS). These all feature lead bullets with polymer coatings. The High Velocity ammo has red-coated bullets, the Subsonic has blue-coated bullets, and the Suppressor version has black-coasted bullets. MSRP is $12.99 for 100 rounds of Subsonic, $11.99 for 100 rounds of Hi-Vel, and $35.99 for 200 rounds of Suppressor variant. There is also a special 400rd Christmas pack of Clean-22 Hi-Vel ammo with Red and GREEN coated bullets. List price is $48.99 for item #946XMAS.

Clean-22 Ammo with Polymer-Coated Bullets
Clean-22 uses an exclusive polymer bullet coating to greatly reduce copper and lead fouling in the barrel without leaving a residue. It also cuts lead buildup in suppressors 60 to 80 percent. Both the Sub-Sonic and High Velocity loads feature a 40-grain round nose lead bullet with geometry that’s been optimized for accuracy. With dependable CCI priming and consistent propellant, Clean-22 provides reliable cycling through semi-automatics and all 22 LR firearms.

This CCI Clean-22 .22 LR ammunition received an On Target Magazine Editor’s Choice Award in 2019.

CCI’s New .22 WMR Clean-22 Ammo with Polymer-Coated Bullets

CCI Maxi-Mag Clean-22 .22 WMR 22WMR ammunition segmented hollowpoint bullet ammo

CCI’s has introduced .22 WMR Maxi-Mag ammo with Clean-22 coating technology. New CCI Maxi-Mag Clean-22 Segmented Hollow Point (SHP) ammo uses an exclusive polymer bullet coating to reduce copper and lead fouling in barrels, without leaving a residue. Shipments of this new product have started.

Editor: We’ve used polymer-coated bullets in larger calibers (.38 Special and .45 ACP), and the coated bullets really do reduce lead fouling in barrels, making barrel cleaning significantly easier.

Segmented Hollow Point (SHP) Bullet for Varminters
The bullet that comes with the new CCI Maxi-Mag Clean-22 ammo should work well for varminters. The 46-grain SHP bullet splits into three equal-size pieces on impact, tripling the number of wound channels. CCI states: “The polymer bullet coating allows this separation at much lower velocities and longer distances than a conventional copper jacket. The bullet’s overall geometry is optimized for accuracy.” Notably, this SHP bullet is currently the industry’s only segmenting hollow-point bullet in .22 WMR.

CCI Product Manager Dan Compton states: “I can’t wait to hear stories and see photos from … customers who use this new [.22 WMR] magnum rimfire round on prairie dog towns, in the squirrel woods, and for their fur-trapping efforts.”

CCI Maxi-Mag Clean-22 .22 WMR Ammo Features:
— Polymer bullet coating reduces lead fouling in the barrel without leaving residue
— Industry’s only segmenting hollow-point bullet in 22 WMR
— Allows expansion at lower velocities than copper-jacketed bullets
— Reduces the risk of penetration through the target and beyond
— Optimized bullet geometry for improved accuracy
