I had the opportunity to spend some quality time with a CCI representative at SHOT SHOW 2016, in Las Vegas, discussing their compressed copper load and I’ve been anxiously awaiting its arrival. Suppressed .22LR shooters will like this ammunition and we hope to bring you a review later this year. This is another great load from CCI. Stay tuned…
