anyone shooting. CCI Copper-22 Ammunition 22 Long Rifle 21 Grain Copper Hollow Point Lead-Free.

even if they don't shoot well, I'm thinking just shooting one every 3-400 rounds would cut the lead out of the bore.  less cleaning?

They suck....
Used some last years shoot , more like a shot gun pattern then a group.
Under 40 yards they "OK" over that and they go astray and get so slow they may bounce off a gopher.
Save your $$$ and get real 22 bullets.
JUST SAYING !!!

I have better accuracy with lead vs washed, I haven't tried all copper yet. 22lr doesn't have the same leading issues, center fires do. I worn out 22s and never had leading, pressure's too low to build lead up.

I don't shoot any copper platted bullets in my 22LR.
I found I don't have to clean the bore very often using just lead.
