50rds - 22 WMR Winchester LF 28gr. JHP Ammo

Winchester Ammunition 28 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

In 1959, Winchester released the 22 WMR, but didn't chamber a rifle fo it until several other manufacturers had come out with multiple firearms for this excellent round. Although it lost significant popularity upon the arrival of the 17 HMR, the 22 WMR is now regaining significant influence due to the release of the V-Max, jacketed hollow point bullet, making this round effective against the likes of coyotes.

Although these 28 grain, Winchester LF rounds are not V-Max, they still fly fast and true and are fantastic for range training. With the added accuracy of the hollow point bullets, these rounds are sure to perform without a hitch on the range.
