Tried to look it up on Armscor site and it is not listed. Could this be the new CMP Special or is it a stop gap measure?

Ammo is made in Southeast Asia - I have not used any, but from the reviews that I have read, you either love it or hate it. The only consistent comments I have read is that it smokes and smells.

The reviews 'out in the wild' seem mixed, about what I would expect for a non-premium .22LR SV ammo.
It looks like it has sold at a premium price at other times, but in today's market the question is: does .08/round seem excessive, and will it go down if things get back to normal?
I would view it as plinking ammo, and ask yourself if it is too much to pay for that?
If you have multiple .22LR rifles, one of them may _really_ like it.
I have room, I may order a case "because".

"ARMSCOR USA ammunition line is made in the USA. ARMSCOR PRECISION ammunition line is made in the Philippines."

--source: https://www.armscor.com/ammo/rimfire/

CMP is selling the one made in the Philippines, as previously noted above by foxcreekranch, it's SKU # 50012

It appears this ammo runs 1,211 FPS which should break the sound barrier in most instances. This concerns me because it will encounter compressibility somewhere below 100 yards in most rifles. This would cause instability as the bullet slows below the sound barrier by giving it a little wobble. Would be nice to have the ballistic data to know for sure. Seems a little fast to be calling it SV. Any .22 that gets over about 1125 FPS usually gives the proverbial flyers that you just can't help.

I take it that the $405 is for 5,000 rds??



SV - Standard Velocity? Which is What in FPS

I take that HV would be high velocity.

I have a few different brands of .22Lr incl Win Super X, Federal, Remington and Aguila. They do not all say High Velocity (the Win super X does) but they all range from 1050FPS to 1190FFS (maybe 1200FPs on one brand). Are these all considered High Velocity ,22 rounds?

Normally SV usually runs under 1125 FPS advertised which is standard day speed of sound. You will see 1095 to 1070 FPS is pretty much what most manufactures use for their SV. Breaking the sound barrier is where the instability comes in when the bullet decelerates below mach. Case in point is Aguila Super Extra 40 GR LRN is advertised as 1130 FPS but when I crono it out of my rifles it comes out around 1080 which will give consistent groups even out past 100 yrds. This is well within the SAAMI standards of +-90 FPS. Is this worth the $405? Well I have spent plenty on ammo that doesn't work that well in certain rifles. One will never know unless they buy a case and give it a try.
