New SV CCI .22 (35 in Paper Box) Issues Empty New SV CCI .22 (35 in Paper Box) Issues

Post by 1joel1 on 9/1/2019, 9:37 am

I recently bought some "new" CCI .22. It's the new style box and looks the same as usual. I usually practice FIFO (First In First Out), but I had only bought 4 bricks so though I would just shoot that first. I only shot 100 rounds and of that, 5 from the first box and 3 from the second box fired differently. They poofed, rather than popped, and left a big blue cloud of smoke. I wasn't able to tell if it affected the shot or where it landed on my target.

Has anyone ever experienced this with CCI, or any other .22 cartridge? I'm wondering if it is light strike from my pistol or the ammo. I don't remember this happening with the other CCI, but I could try another pistol. I know this is a small sample, but 8 of 100 is disconcerting.

Any ideas or opinions?

Thanks in advance,

Joel

You need to contact CCI and give them the lot number.  They will probably want you to ship them the ammo so they can check it.  They will send you replacement ammo.

And yes, I have experienced this with .22 ammo.  I sent back a case of 711B last year and Federal sent me a case in return.  They paid the freight both ways.

We recently had a discussion whether or not currently produced CCI SV packaged in the 100 plastic pack (0032) is the same ammo as is loaded in the 50 pack paper box (0035). The majority felt the difference was only packaging, and price due to packaging. The 0035 does not have lot numbers on each box, nor on each brick. However, a case of 5,000 of the 0035 does have a lot number printed on a label attached to the outer carton.

Friday, I just opened a new case of CCI-SV, the stuff with the orange stripe on the boxes. Shot 100 rounds, not a problem one. I hope my case is all right, because I've been reading bad things about CCI recently.

Well, the 4 bricks I bought will be practice ammo for sure. Either that or plinking around with, but not worth putting in my target pistols.

I bought a brick last week and the individual boxes had lot numbers.
Am I missing what others are saying?

Yes, 0035.

I recently bought three bricks of that and the boxes have lot numbers on the flaps.

Shooting fine so far through the first brick.

Mine don't have lot numbers on them. The brick boxes don't either. I didn't buy a case, thank goodness, but sometimes the inner case box has a lot number.

The paper box is slightly different from the 0035 paper box ammo I have. The "red" TARGET banner at the bottom is not on any that I have.

I think that they just call is 35 now. Used to be 0035, then 035, now just 35. I think that 3.5 is on the horizon. Or, maybe just 3, unless they round it up, then 4. Someone, please stop me.

Thanks,

Joel

I have some that has a code stamped mechanically on the back (where all the writing is) that reads “E0 YA07”. You have to hold it so there’s a reflection off the box to see it. But it’s there. Obviously a code but there it is.

I've had lots of other issues with CCI 22 SV due to the 95 degree Florida temperature, but never experienced what you describe until today - but for me it was one round of Eley ammo from the CMP.  Round after round sounded the same, and then one round sounded "funny", much quieter, sort of like a "whoosh".  It stopped me in my tracks.

I removed the magazine, cycled the slide, and an empty round fell out.  I checked the barrel (which is why I was taking it apart, just to be sure all was OK), and everything was fine - nothing in the barrel.  It's never (knowingly) happened to me before, and it only happened this one time today.  My thoughts are that for some strange reason I'll never find out about, that round wasn't fully charged.


Anyone with repeatable errors with ammo could set it aside, and call the distributor.  In my case, they sent me a call tag so I could ship it back at their expense, they tested it thoroughly, and they told me it was normal, no issues.   The problem apparently came from the wax on the CCI ammo melting in the Florida heat.  They're replacing it with new armmo of course, but in the meantime I tested some leftover CCI on a day when it wasn't so hot, and the problem vanished.  

Now I've got lots of ammo to try, but I need a day when the temperature is back up in the. 90's.

I came across a brick that I bought earlier this year and as Wobbley mentioned,
It has the code stamped on the back. If you’re not looking for it, you’ll miss it.
