Putting together a heavier bullet, a cleaner powder, a premium lube on the lead round nose projectile resulted in consistent velocities and harder hitting performance at subsonic, suppressor-friendly speed.
The 42 grain lead round nose bullet is heavier than traditionally available rounds, but isn’t so heavy as to cause instability. While “harder hitting” and .”22lr” aren’t usually associated together, steel silhouette shooters will appreciate the difference between a knockdown and a wobbling target that stays up! A designed velocity of 1020 feet per second ensures the heavier projectile remains subsonic speed in most all firearms without resorting to anemic velocities.
GEMTECH’s testing indicates that the ballistic coefficient for the 42gr GEMTECH bullet is approximately .125. Sold in 500 round bricks or 5,000 round cases, the GEMTECH SUBSONIC .22lr ammunition is sub-packaged in 50 rd tray boxes.
