We reported back before the start of SHOT Show 2023 this winter that CCI had plans to debut a new offering of ammunition through their Clean-22 series of ammo dubbed CCI Clean-22 Hyper Velocity. This new rimfire variant would be both clean shooting as well as wicked fast at 1,550 FPS (feet per second). This product line extension to the Clean-22 series of ammunition will be gearing up for production soon with it hitting the shelves quickly afterwards.

At the moment, CCI crafts 6 varieties through their Clean-22 line of ammunition, and Clean-22 Hyper Velocity will make for a 7th option. These vary from camouflage offerings to subsonic and more. All of those varietals are listed below:
The pricing varies quite a bit from $10.95 – $51.99 (because it is in relation to the quantity CCI is packaging the ammo in).The Clean-22 Hyper Velocity that is supposed to go into production soon will have the most affordable price-point with an MSRP of $10.95 for a box of 50 rounds. The rest of the nitty-gritty specs can be read below as presented by CCI:
- 1,550 fps muzzle velocity
- Purple polymer bullet coating reduces lead fouling in the barrel without leaving residue
- Cuts lead buildup in suppressors 60 to 80 percent
- 31-grain lead round nose bullets
- Optimized bullet geometry for improved accuracy
- High-velocity loading and reliable function in semi-automatic firearms
Now you can get all the benefits of exclusive Clean-22™ technology with the flat trajectories and power of an extreme-velocity load. New CCI® Clean-22 Hyper Velocity clocks in at 1,550 fps, while the advanced polymer coating on the 31-grain lead round nose bullet reduces fouling, especially in suppressed rimfires.
It is great to see that CCI is expanding out their Clean-22 line of ammunition yet again. Two of the most important traits rimfire shooters are looking for in their ammo is speed and cleanliness. Rimfire ammo is notorious for being dirty so the cleaner, the better. Also, that extra kick of velocity should help you reach out further on steel and varmints alike.
