Does the .mil have special loadings for 22LR?

If so do they have the standard .mil 'M' designations?

Armored Piercing Incendiary, API 22LR for short.

I've never ordered any and I have ordered quite a few odd things to include 9mm hollowpoint, .38 special ball, and .45acp. Would .22lr be a COTS item?

is it for rifle M10/22?

Probably commercial packed into an ammo can and marked up. When I was doing the combat shotgun course in the Marines, we opened the sealed ammo cans and inside was commercial boxes of 12 Ga. Winchester I think, can't remember for sure.

Having fun aren'tcha?

I was just wondering what 22LR was used in their trainers or if there was some sort of sub-sonic loads for suppressed weapons.

I was being serious. We get our birdshot Commercial Off The Shelf or COTS. I know 12 Ga. buckshot, 9mm hollowpoint, .38 special, and .45acp all still have a valid NSN and are orderable through the DoD. 12 Ga. birdshot does not have an NSN. We let the guys buy it from a local sporting goods store.

I would bet military .22lr would be the same way if there was no old NSN still active from when the M261 kits and Ruger MKIIs were being used. My guess would be 550 round value packs of any brand.

Realistically the the Aguila Sub-Sonic Sniper (SSS) 60gr ammo is probably the only thing i'd ever consider shooting at someone out of a .22lr. Unless there is something else out there I don't know about.

The stuff I bought from the CMP was Remington hi-speed 40 grain standard stuff in the yellow and green commercial boxes, 10 bricks to the case.

I recall seeing Winchester T-22 boxes.

I imagine the military will buy anything that meets pressure/velocity/accuracy specs. It is not like it is combat ammo that must be garanteed to work.

Yes the military buys most 22 ammo commercialy but has contracted for HV and Pistol Match ammo.

Of the ammo I've been issued the contract white box HV is Federal, Pistol Match Winchester.

Ammo is designated ( BALL, CAL. 22 LONG RIFLE )

Comercial ammo.

Eley Tenex
Eley pistol match
1980's white/green box Remington Pistol match
Remington Golden Bullet HV

Only the contract white box HV/SV and Remington Pistol Match were packaged in ammo cans.

Pff, that's .50 BMG at long range. Take out a couple targets a mile away, and sometime later, the sound of a faint crackle arrives.

Like 30mm from above. *p-t-t-t-t-t-t-t-t-t-t-t--t-tt-t* <half the enemy explodes> ... ... ... *BRRRRRPT*

I have a case [and a couple bricks] of Rem with a NSN # that I got with my M261. It was their 1522 spec ammo. It is actually VERY consistant ammo and I've yet to have even gotten a dud yet. All reports are consistant and it has never failed to cycle the M261. They feed very well also.

I read a story awhile back on Israeli units using .22LR as a riot suppression technique … They'd basically hang back, look for the people that were inciting the riots, and kneecap 'em. Apparently rioters tend not to stick around when the guys stirring shit up suddenly drop with a popped knee.

See if I can find the story.

The Remington HV Golden bullet ammo has suffered from bad storage, it is stored in factory cardboard cases. expect alot of tarnished ammo and duds. Best avoided.

Winchester white box contract HV ( subcontracted to Federal ) is better and comes in 5100 cans but also is old and most of bullets have lead oxidation.

Winchester Pistol match is still in system , that is what we get consistantly every year.
Good stuff in both pistols and rifles.

Same here. We went through 50,000 rounds of Olin-Winchester white box (equivalent to T22) and 10,000 rounds of Eley Tenex each year. It was a hell of way to spend 2nd period 5 days a week for Sophomore, Junior, and Senior years

Although I've never used it, they do make a 22lr conversion kit like the Ciener kit for training, that uses 22lr. I believe it was for use on smaller indoor ranges that many armories have in the basement, designed for pistols.

The Military did have a .22 cartridge with an "M" designation.

Cartridge, Caliber .22, Ball, Long Rifle, M24.
DODAC: 1305-A089
The cartridge is intended for use against small game for survival purposes.

It is shown in TM 43-0001-27, and classified as obsolete. The drawing shows what appears to be a jacket on the bullet, and a bullet shape that is different from "normal" .22 LR bullets.

I looked it up today and dodics A086 and A090 are still in the system and are suitable subs for each other. Not only are they still in the system able to be ordered, but there are tons of them physically out there.

So there you go. Military .22lr does exist and is just standard Remington ball ammo.
