About the Cartridge

The Stevens Arms Co. developed the .22 Long Rifle rimfire cartridge from the .22 Long cartridge case developed 16 years earlier, with a 40 grain round nose bullet loaded to a higher velocity than the older 29 grain .22 Long bullet. Modern .22 Long Rifle High Velocity cartridges drive a 40 grain copper-plated bullet at a muzzle velocity of 1255 fps and muzzle energy of 140 ft-lbs from a rifle barrel. This rimfire cartridge has become the most popular sporting and target shooting cartridge in the world.

Same as CX22?
By Lego on 22 Sep 2021
Looking at the description and photo of the Iver Johnson TP22 makes me wonder if it is the same as the American Arms CX22. Same magazine capacity and overall specs. Could anyone get me out of doubts here?
