Ballistic Gel Testing
We tested this CCI 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 13.92-inches into the gelatin. Our test rounds ended the test with an average expanded diameter of 0.22-inches, retaining 100% of the projectile's original weight.
On this page, you'll see video of our tests including photographs that detail the ammunition before/after firing it through a four-layer barrier into gelatin. Also, you'll see how this CCI Ammunition 22 Magnum (WMR) ammunition stacks up compared to other self-defense rounds in 22 Magnum (WMR).
