.22 (5.6mm) LR Rimfire by TsNIITOChMASh in Klimovsk with Plastic Core Bullet?


#1

From the online catalog listing of TsNIITOChMASh showing .22 rimfire ammunition is this loading that appears to have an exposed yellow plastic bullet core that is apparently supposed to help with bullet upset on impact, like a hollow point, for hunting purposes.

The pictures below are from the online catalog: http://www.cniitm.ru/catalog/civilian-weapons/96/

Additional .22 rimfire loadings listed in the catalog are shown here: http://www.cniitm.ru/catalog/civilian-weapons/

Can anyone provide additional information?

Brian, that should be grease only. The proj tip just has a cross-shaped cut.

Well the pictures certainly had me fooled! Thanks for the information.
