    Do you know what this is?

    Hey folks, let me start off by saying that i'm not sure this is posted in the correct place. If it isn't Mods would you please move it? Thanks.

    I was searching through the attic yesterday and I stumbled across some of my late fathers hunting stuff.. I found a "ammo can" with approx. 300 rounds of .22 ammo. I looked for hours on google and various gun forums and I cannot find the answer I am looking for. What exactly are they? Like who makes them? Are they reloads? It has stumped me, I would like to sell them because I do not currently own anything that's chambered in .22 but not knowing anything about them makes it hard to post anywhere.. If anyone would like to chime in and help me figure out what they are I would be very appreciative! Thanks DC!

    The only marking anywhere on the casing is a "C" stamped on the back.

    Googled it. Looks like the same headstamp as CCI.

    Looks like CCI .22 long rifle ammo; 40 grain bullets and standard velocity. I've shot a ton of it and never had any problems. In fact, it was pretty much my go-to ammo in that caliber. It ran great in both rifle and revolver with good accuracy.

    I'd say you now have an excuse to buy a .22 rimfire. They are great fun and useful.

    That would be my bet. CCI for sure.

    Don't let them go cheaply!

    I was in a LGS last weekend and they were getting (trying to get) $10 for a plastic bag of 50 .22s. I just KNOW that they bought a bulk box (550 rounds) and divided them up into packs of 50. Probably paid about $25 for the 550 and now want a return of $110.

    Congrats on your find.

    That ammo is dangerous and over-pressured. It will blow up any gun you try to shoot it through causing injury or death.

    As a service to you, send me the ammo and I will dispose of it in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.

    (just kidding, it's CCI and is very good ammo)

    What you found is a reason...

    To add a .22 to the collection.

    Those are .22 Long Rifle rounds made by CCI. And just so you know, rimfire cases cannot be reloaded so they are factory ammunition.

    Go to a Pawn shop and buy a Ruger 10/22.

    Every home should have one.
