Has anyone shot any of cci's new .22 stangers in their handguns? Couldn't find anything about them in the search and was wondering what your impressions of them were.

According to the below video, “Stangers” are exactly the same load as the venerable Stinger. Because that guy pronounced it Stanger, there was some sort of movement started for CCI to call them that as well. That’s the name on a limited edition(?) packaging and they’re reportedly available in a 100 round pack rather than 50 rounds for Stingers, but according to him the loads are the same. There are many YouTube video reviews of Stingers.

CCI Stingers are a light-ish weight round that comes smokin' out of the muzzle at exceedingly high velocity.

Not characteristics that lend themselves to stability or accuracy, yes?

I presume one can expect the same out of CCI Stangers.

I was looking for some mini-mags but none of the local shops had them. These were the only ones that were not standard velocity that I could find. They have the same velocity as the stingers according to CCI's website. I wanted something with a little more oomph for breaking in the new Victory I bought for my granddaughter. Looks like we'll finally get to shoot it in the next couple of days.

Yep. Because they're just Stingers with a different label on the box.

It's a marketing stunt. Like CCI's "Choot 'em" Mini Mags from several years back.

Exact same ammo, packaged in a slightly different "special edition" box.

It's a limited edition packaging Stinger based on the drawl of 22Plinkster on youtube. Standard Stinger load.

I can check the YouTube and stuff but was just wondering if any of the membership had had any first hand experiences of their own with that ammo. I'd like to think those would be more reliable.

Update and a fuster cluck. Took my granddaughter to finally get to break in her new Victory. Numerous jams, stovepipes, and failures to eject. Stupid me never did enough research to find out the cases are a little longer than regular 22LR. Didn't even get to find out if it was only the ammo and not the gun but thinking it's the ammo. I did read today that lots of guns have trouble with ejection with the longer cases and failures to go into battery also. Wish I had read that sooner and wouldn't have bought that expensive ammo. Will try some other ammo next trip since we didn't have time this one. I left there so pissed off you could have seen me steaming. So much for trying to make break in easier and faster. I feel like a freakin' idiot. Really hating disappointing my granddaughter like that. Rant over...

Good for learning clearance drills. I always used the Mini Mags and have never had trouble with them ever. They are out of stock at Academy and TargetSports. You can put your name on a list to be notified via email. That does work btw.

Update to my update! Took the Victory to the range today and put 50 rounds of Federal Auto Match through it. It ran like a champ with not one hiccup. That is one accurate little gun. Called my granddaughter with the good news and looks like a range day for us tomorrow. Can't wait for her to get to shoot her new gun with some ammo that works.

Different boxes of Federal Auto have produced different results for me. BTW TargetSportsUSA has CCI minimags in stock. 100 rounds for 11.99. Good price.
