What is the actual velocity they are calling "Super Extra High Velocity"? I'm having troubles ringing sbhp rams at 100 meters with my contender and levergun.

It's not all one phrase, a lot of their .22s are named "Super Extra" even if they are standard velocity. Their website lists the muzzle velocity as 1255 fps.

I've shot a lot of their Colibri and Super Colibri ammo and some Sniper Sub-sonics, seems like quality ammo. I wish I had a lot more to play with, and a good long range ballistics chart to go with it.

Their site says this:

KILL MORE BULLíS-EYES.
These high velocity rounds are perfect for target
shooting or plinking and provide tight groupings. The
copper-plated bullet provides excellent accuracy,
consistent performance, and smooth cycling
.

The Super Extra is separate from High Velocity. Super
Extra meaning "Quality" I guess cause the velocity is
1,255 with a 40 grain bullet while CCI Velocitor does
1435 with a 40 grain. Not sure how they measure these two
but that is a big difference.

I don't think I've ever rang a ram at 200 meters..using any target ammo.

fps.

That's pretty much what I am shooting now. One of the ranges I shoot at the 100 meter 1/2 small bore hunter pistol/SBCR targets are set pretty hard and only about half of them fall when hit solidly.

What discipline are you shooting at 22 rams 200 meters Don?

It's the 22bpcr matches. Using bpcr silhouette legal rifles chambered in 22 lr
shooting basically the same size silhouettes they use for the small bore
levergun matches, only the chickens are shot at 50 meters offhand, pigs 100
meters, turkeys 150 and rams at 200, those last three are shot any position.

Thanks Don, you sent me off to Google! It looks an interesting game. From what I can tell they are using 2/5 sized targets which makes sense from a scaling perspective. I did have a go at BPCR once a few years ago with a borrowed gun. It was enjoyable but we only have one match a month around here whereas we have a match a week in the Levergun and the pistol disciplines.

Terry they are starting to run some 22 bpcr matches in your neck of the
woods, it's been slow moving in your direction. Many, if not most of the match
directors out this direction allow for an "open" class at the monthly matches ,
where any rifle that can be singly loaded is allowed to compete. It is a very fun
match, and it's popularity is probably starting to outstrip the BPCRS matches a
great deal.
Next time you're on Facebook check out the Smithmoor range, and there is a
22 bpcr page. Also the Kentucky BPCR page is covering 22 bpcr matches in
your neighborhood.

I was digging around the garage today and found a .50 cal. ammo can filled with a variety of .22 RF's. There were two boxes of Super Extras in it, but I don't remember how well they shot.

I did notice the copper plating was turning dark after being out there for just under 11 years.
