It was mainly standard velocity, of course (this was not a hunting rig), but there was high-velocity and even hyper-velocity
stuff as well.
Can't remember who did it first, but I seem to recall it in conjunction with CCI Stingers--the granddaddy of all hyper-velocity
With the exception of the hyper-velocity
Winchester 26-grain tin bullet ammo, everything I ran through the pistol's 4.
While this system works well for standard loads, hyper-velocity
ammo (such as the truncated-cone Remington Viper I shot through it) can actually dislodge the slide from the fingers connecting it to the recoil spring, as well as the grip panel holding the whole shebang in place.
No, we don't gain much from hyper-velocity
trend started for two reasons, steel and the demise of the old "drams equivalent" rating for shotshell velocity.
In this day of hyper-velocity
monster magnums, it is reassuring to see the revival of this traditional game cartridge, especially in a top-notch modem rifle.
Marlin recommends using high velocity loads, but not hyper-velocity
In a couple of shooting sessions at Angeles Shooting Ranges we found this pistol to be extremely reliable with a wide range of standard, high-velocity and hyper-velocity
As a comparison, hyper-velocity
Long Rifle cartridges like the 32-grain CCI Stinger at 1,640 fps, the 33-grain Remington Yellow Jacket at 1,500 fps, and the 30-grain Aguila Super Maximum at 1,750 fps offer flatter trajectories--but not usefully flatter at 50 yards.
22 Long Rifle ammunition in the field test which included Eley, Remington, Winchester and CCI Match ammunition, as well as some Stinger and Yellow Jacket hyper-velocity
The pistol was fired with both high-speed and hyper-velocity
ammunition, including hollow points, with nary a failure to feed or fire.
