.22 Long Rifle hollow-points are similar in shape to round-nosed bullets, with the exception of offering a small, hollowed tip for expansion on contact with the target. One new innovation on this design is the segmented hollow-point, which is intended to break apart as it expands, increasing effectiveness on tissue. The expanding design of these .22LR bullets makes them the ideal choice for small game and varmint hunters looking to deliver solid hits on their quarry.
Hollow-points for the .22LR are available in numerous types, with the majority being constructed of solid lead or electroplated with copper. Some manufacturers are even offering lead-free hollow-points made of copper particles suspended in a polymer substrate. These lead-free (or “green”) bullets are suited to indoor target shooting, shooting in natural areas where ammunition containing lead is not permitted, and for small game hunters who wish to eliminate the risk of lead contaminating meat.
Despite their design and effectiveness on small game, many varieties of .22LR hollow-points are available in bulk packs for budget conscious shooters. Check out our 22 lr hollow point ammo for sale below:
