Ballistic Gel Testing
We tested this Armscor Precision Ammunition 22 Magnum (WMR) ammo by firing five rounds with a Ruger LCR with a 1.87-inch barrel into calibrated Clear Ballistics gelatin. Of those five rounds, we discovered the ammo penetrated an average of 15.98-inches into the gelatin. Our test rounds ended the test with an average expanded diameter of 0.22-inches, retaining 99% of the projectile's original weight.

I had purchased a Henry Lever action 22 magnum rifle, put a Nikon Prostaff 3-9×40mm scope on it. I had shot armscor 22lr ammo before and decided to break the Henry 22 magnum in with it. I did purchase the Armscor USA 22 magnum 40 grain ammunition, made in the USA, stay away from the Armscor made in the Philippines, coated with wax and it is messy in your hand and chamber. The break in of the Henry 22 magnum was great, the Henry put groups inside of a 1/4" at 50 yards shooting off of homemade sandbags. It shot so well it is my ammunition. Shoots as accurate as the CCI 40 grain 22 magnum ammo. Give it a try, your rifle/pistol will love the Armscor USA 22 magnum ammunition.
