Just in time for small-game seasons to open across the country CCI Ammunition released its Maxi-Mag Clean-22 for .22 WMR-chambered rifles.
Recently we posted a review about two rifles chambered in .22 Mag and .223 Rem. Originally that article was going to cover the .17 HMR as well. After delving into its interesting background, currently available platforms and load options, it seemed like a good idea to give the .17 HMR an article of its own with plenty of room to explore various loads and work with two test rifles instead of just one.
Favorable features of .22 rimfire rifles include their affordability, low recoil, relatively quiet report, and the price and availability of .22 Long Rifle ammunition—it’s easy to have a long, enjoyable range session without breaking the bank.
Smith & Wesson is offering its popular M&P15-22 SPORT rifle with a factory-mounted MP-100 Red/Green Dot Optic, calling it the M&P15-22 SPORT OR.
