The Winchester Wildcat 22lr Ammo was introduced by Winchester Ammunition, a longtime leader in rimfire ammunition. The Wildcat round provides more energy on target and optimizes cycling in semi-automatic firearms such as the Winchester Wildcat rifle. Wildcat rimfire ammunition is an excellent choice for plinking, target practice, varmint and small-game hunting.
Winchester Wildcat rimfire products are manufactured to exceedingly high standards with reliable priming and uniform powder charges and bullet dimensions to yield consistent accuracy from one box to the next. Copper-plated bullets, clean-burning powder and priming contribute to maintaining clean firearm actions for reliable function. This ammunition is new production and non-corrosive.
Winchester Wildcat 22lr ammo review’s to be confused with Winchester’s new autoloading rifle of the same name, has been around since about 1971. It doesn’t get a lot of press these days, so Editor in Chief Joel Hutchcroft thought now would be a good time to highlight it. It’s a good plinking round as well as a good small-game hunting round.
