Are they somehow designed for an AR conversion BCG that utilizes the stock barrel? I can't see why a dedicated .22 LR AR-style rifle or upper would need any special ammunition; it's just another semiautomatic .22 rifle.
CCI rimfire ammunition is generally top-shelf stuff, but I don't see this being anything more than a marketing ploy.

Could be what you saw.
Love your chicken btw.
CCI is good stuff, but as far as a special "tactical" load, if there is such a thing it is marketing for the gomers who think .22LR has the energy required for self-defense. Newsflash! The energy and reliability isn't there, no matter what projectile you mount on that casing. Although if I had to pick .22LR defensive ammo, CCI would be the way to go, they have the most reliable priming/ignition of any rimfire I've ever tried.
This is not called CCI Tactical 22LR ammo.
but call it defense ammunition not tactical.a over used term that needs to go away.
I think that some (not all, as bullet design is also important) existing .22 LR loads have enough energy and the right terminal ballistics for self-defense, even in handguns, when they're matched to the appropriate barrel lengths--no special "tactical" loads are necessary, although it remains to be seen what is really meant by the marketing terminology in this case. I think it is possible to improve on existing .22 LR loads, so I'm intrigued, although the cynic in me doesn't expect much.
I agree here--CCI priming seems reliable enough for self-defense, in my opinion, although I'd still stick with revolvers in this caliber.
The CCI Velocitor (not the Stinger) already comes pretty close to the ideal for a .22 LR defensive load, in my opinion. I'd keep it more or less the same for rifles, but for handguns I think that it could be improved by filling in the hollow-point cavity (which would add some weight to the bullet), making the bullet flat-nosed, and casting it from a relatively hard lead alloy.
Well, suppressed .22 LR is said to be commonly used for killing people stealthily, so maybe that cancels out the sarcasm.
Anyway, according to General Tso's images it's clearly not the improved Velocitor I was hoping for, so the mystery continues.
Well, a 40 grain antimatter bullet would theoretically have a yield of about 111 kilotons (of TNT). Is that strategic enough for you?
