ANOKA, Minn. – -( The National Rifle Association’s (NRA) American Hunter magazine has awarded CCI Quiet-22 with the Golden Bullseye Award for 2014 Ammunition of the Year.

The honor highlights the exceptional advantages CCI ammunition offers.

For the past 12 years, the NRA Golden Bullseye Awards have recognized the finest products in the shooting sports. After months of testing and evaluation, a seven-person committee, consisting of editors, graphic designers and veteran NRA Publications staff, presents awards to innovative products and companies that exceed the evaluators’ expectations.

CCI will accept this award during a special breakfast at the 2014 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits on Friday, April 25 in Indianapolis, Ind.

“We are extremely pleased to receive American Hunter’s Golden Bullseye Award,” said CCI Brand Director Rick Stoeckel. “Between this award and the overwhelming market response to CCI Quiet-22, we know we are providing a valuable tool for shooters everywhere. Quiet-22 is a great way to introduce new shooters to the sport.”

Ideal for shooting where noise may be an issue, CCI Quiet-22 produces 75 percent less perceived noise than a standard velocity 22 Long Rifle load. The ultra-quiet round is perfect for plinking or hunting, and for use by young or inexperienced shooters.

CCI Quiet-22 uses a standard 22 LR case, and the 710 fps muzzle velocity delivers excellent accuracy and better performance than air rifles with similar noise levels. Because the round produces only 68 decibels at the shooter’s ear, hearing protection is suggested but not required.

    1. And with any luck you might hear about someone who actually saw a box of this on the shelf at Wally World once early on a Tuesday morning just after it was delivered and eight other guys played rocks paper scissors lizard Spock for ten minutes to see who would actually buy the thing.

    2. Norm, That was funny and sadly it’s true!

    3. If I had a choice of only one caliber, it would be the lowly .22. To clarify that I mean both .22 rimfire, and .22 centerfire rounds. The centerfire would allow me to shoot during “ammo droughts” by reloading. I’m tired of playing rock paper scissors lizard Spock to get ammo. Kind of reminds me of the “shortages” experienced by residents of the “Soviet Union”.

      During the last great depression in this country the most sought after item was ammo of all types. Is history repeating? You be the judge.
