WAY faster than the 40 gr .22 mag rimfire's 1900 fps, which is from a 20" rifle barrel. I see no reason to bother with a 223 pistol, nor with a 7" barrel, but that extra 800 fps means 650 ft lbs, not 300 ft lbs. In other words, it hits like a .22 HORNET, not a 22 mag rimfire. BIG difference, dumbass. The 2300 fp you THINK is "like a .22 wmr is with a 62 gr bullet, not a 32 gr bullet. BIG difference. Quit LYING to people.

A month or so ago, Gun Tests magazine chrono'd some .223 pistols and got 2100-2200 fps for 55 grain bullets. Other tests that I have seen got about the same.

With a 40 grain bullet, you might get 2500-2600 fps, but people that i know who own .223 pistols get 2400+ fps with 40 grain bullets.

This corresponds to a kinetic energy of 512 lbs-ft. These are .22 WMRF velocities if you use 55 or 62 gn bullets.

In my original thread, I wrote:

With 7" barrels, the velocity is in the .22 WMRF range...
So, either you didn't read what I wrote or you chose twist the words. Regardless, I did not lie.

no, they AINT. The .22 mag gets 40 grs to 1900 fps. The versions that get 2200 fps are 30 grs, or there about.

u CONVENIENTLY left out the bullet wt. That's like saying that a 5" 45 ACP has velcocities in the 30-30 range(ie, 2200 fps, and NEGLECTING to mention that the bullet wt is 70 grs, as vs the 30-30's 170 grs. It's misleading, which IS a form of lying, bill Clinton to the contrary notwithstanding.

u can TAILOR 223 handloads, to give better perfomance

with a given bullet wt or barrel length. You're STUCK with factory ballistics in a .22 mag rimfire.

Post links to proof gunkid. We know you are fos on 99 percent of what you post on velocitys. I PROVED you were FOS on the 11" POSCAR. Post proof.
