CMMG Announces Rifle Line Chambered in 22 Nosler

22 Nosler made its debut earlier this year at SHOT Show 2017, and rifle manufacturers haven't hesitated to embrace it—most recently CMMG, which has announced the arrival of a new line of rifles chambered in the cartridge.

Already SAAMI approved, a 55-grain 22 Nosler Ballistic Tip round can reasonably expect muzzle velocities approaching 3500 fps out of a 24-inch barrel. The cartridge features 25 more case capacity than the .223 Rem. and feeds out of 6.8 REM SPC magazines. Despite the larger casing, the rim has been necked down so that the round runs off a standard .223 bolt carrier group. All of those attributes made it appealing to the folks at CMMG.

"Anytime there's a new rifle caliber introduced, we always take a look at it and determine if it's something our customers would be interested in and benefit from," said Chris Reinkenmeyer, CEO of CMMG Inc. "The .22 Nosler caught our eye for a number of reasons. First, it's designed around the AR15 and so it's very compatible with our rifles and also easy to match up with an existing lower. Second, our customers want rifles that are unique but with purpose. Based on our testing, we feel that the 22 Nosler does present significant ballistic advantages for shooters who require a fast, accurate and flat shooting projectile out of a relatively lightweight rifle."

CMMG's 22 Nosler line-up will include four different rifles, four upper receiver groups that can be pair with any mil-spec AR15 lower receiver and three barrel sub-assemblies. Each rifle comes standard with a 10-round magazine. Complete details are below.
