CCI has long been king of the shotshell for handguns, but its engineers had been working on the next generation of products for some time. The idea was simple: deliver more power than the company's standard offerings. It's what customers wanted. As you might have figured out, the name "Big 4" was born straight from the new line's main selling point: Each cartridge is loaded with No. 4 lead shot.
Much like its Vista Outdoor companion Federal Premium, CCI piqued the interest of media members at SHOT Show 2016, thanks to the introduction of its new Big 4 handgun shotshell. Big 4 is designed to extend the range and capabilities of downsized shotshells, using a payload of No. 4 lead shot.
CCI has released Clean-22 Hyper Velocity, allowing shooters the benefits of exclusive Clean-22 technology, while still maintaining the flat trajectories and power of an extreme-velocity load.
.17 HMR has never been a caliber that's taken well to semi-automatic rifles, but Savage Arms might have rolled out a new answer at SHOT Show 2015's Media Day at the Range.
