Load data for caliber ".22 Creedmoor"The .22 Creedmoor is a centerfire rifle cartridge that was developed by Hornady in 2018. It is based on the .6mm Creedmoor case that has been necked down to accept a .22 caliber bullet.
The .22 Creedmoor cartridge features a small primer pocket, which allows for more consistent ignition and better accuracy. It typically uses a bullet with a diameter of .224 inches (5.7 mm) and a weight of 75 to 90 grains (4.9 to 5.8 g), propelled by a powder charge that gives it a muzzle velocity of around 3,300 to 3,500 feet per second (1,006 to 1,067 meters per second).
The .22 Creedmoor cartridge was designed to provide long-range shooters with a fast and flat-shooting cartridge that could be used in a variety of rifles, including bolt-action and AR-platform rifles. It is suitable for varmint and predator hunting, as well as target shooting and long-range competitions.
While the .22 Creedmoor is a relatively new cartridge, it has gained a following among long-range shooters and is becoming increasingly popular. However, firearms chambered for this cartridge may not be as widely available as those chambered for more popular cartridges.

Wildcat stands for a wildcat cartridge which is a custom cartridge for which ammunition and/or firearms are not mass-produced. These cartridges are often created in order to optimize a certain performance characteristic (such as the power, size or efficiency) of an existing commercial cartridge.
Developing and using wildcat cartridges does not generally serve a purpose in military or law enforcement; it is more a hobby for serious shooting, hunting, gunsmithing and handloading enthusiasts, particularly in the United States. There are potentially endless varieties of wildcat cartridge: one source of gunsmithing equipment has a library of over 6,000 different wildcat cartridges for which they produce equipment such as chamber reamers.
