CCI Clean-22 Suppressor Ammo runs cleaner and improves accuracy through suppressors.

CCI Ammunition just released a new Clean-22 22 LR round, featuring a polymer bullet coating. It comes in an easy-to-pour, bulk-pack carton, great for all-day training or fun on the range.

The new ammo uses an advanced polymer bullet coating. It reduces lead fouling inside a suppressor by up to 60 percent, according to CCI. The exclusive feature reportedly makes cleanup and maintenance easier. Additionally, the coating aids in accuracy, according to CCI. The company’s well-known primers and propellants round out the new package.

“Clean-22 ammunition provides an advantage because its polymer coating replaces the wax that is traditionally applied to 22 LR ammunition,” said CCI Rimfire Product Manager Dan Compton. “The goal of traditional wax is to protect the barrel of the gun from buildup of lead or copper created as bullets pass through it. But this wax does not totally encapsulate the bullet, so metal and wax deposits eventually build up and the gun needs to be cleaned. However, because the Clean-22 polymer coating completely encapsulates the bullet, it does a better job protecting the barrel from dirt and buildup than wax. The cleaner results are quite impressive.”
