The .22 TCM (Tuason-Craig Micro-magnum) ammunition category features a wide range of high-quality cartridges designed for firearms chambered in this unique caliber. Developed by custom gunsmith Fred Craig and Armscor, the .22 TCM is a bottlenecked cartridge that offers exceptional velocity, accuracy, and minimal recoil, making it a popular choice among target shooters, varmint hunters, and small-game enthusiasts.
The .22 TCM cartridge is based on a shortened and necked-down .223 Remington case and uses a 40-grain bullet that travels at high velocity, typically around 2,000 feet per second. This results in a flat trajectory and excellent accuracy at longer distances. The cartridge is also known for its low recoil, making it a popular choice among competitive shooters.
In addition to the TCM series of firearms, the .22 TCM cartridge can also be used in select firearms chambered for .223 Remington with a simple barrel change. However, it is important to note that the .22 TCM is not interchangeable with the .22 WMR (Winchester Magnum Rimfire) or the .223 Remington, despite the similar case dimensions.
