22 Rimfire


#1

Has anyone broken down or sectioned either a 22 short or long by Cartoucherie Franchaise with the headstamp of CF with either the flat or curved lines over and under the letters? Am interested to find out if these rounds have a reduced powder charge or just the primer as a propellent. Have seen it listed both ways.

the 22 long from Cartoucherie Francaise with hstp: CF with flat line over and under , is called 22 Coup par Coup (meaning one shot at each time).
You shoot one, you pull the slide, shoot another one aso.
The box is yellow color with letters in black
These ctges have a reduced powder charge.
They are designed to be accurate to 15 meters.

J P,
thanks for the answer. Are the cartridges with the CURVED lines over and under the CF the same thing? Maybe made earlier or later production.

As J-P stated the straight line over and under CF are reduced load. The Ones with acurved line above and below are WITHOUT powder.
