.22 Velocitor Ammunition

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

I just purchased a new brick of CCI Velocitor .22 Long Rifle Ammunition and noticed on the box that the Bullet description is listed as 40 Grain Copper Plated Hollow Point. I have an old box of the same Velocitor Ammo from about 6 years ago that lists the Bullet as a Speer Gold Dot. I know the packaging has changed on CCI & Speer products lately,(some friends of mine were in on that focus group) but I was under the impression that the Velocitor was loaded with Gold Dot Bullets.
I tested the Bullet in the new packaging, and it's not the same as the original stuff from long ago. Don't missunderstand me, it performs/expands great, just not a Gold Dot.
Anyone out there with some ideas/answers???

L&G ... NO idea what is going on, other than the new packaging. This has been my hunting and target round for a lot of years. My 10/22's still love them, the squirrels still fear them, my freezer is just as full. A rose is still a rose?

Can't say about the old stuff, I bought my first batch a year ago, just did an inventory and I still have 3200 rounds left from the 5000 I bought so I must be happy with them. Not the best bullet I have for 100 yard shooting but acceptable. When I am zeroed and corrected for the wind I can keep all of them inside the 7 ring and most of them inside the 8 ring with both my Marlin 60 and my target 10/22. With my other rifles I'm happy to keep them on paper.

I bought some this past Fall and those were hollowpoints. Worked fantastic on all the tree rats I shot with them.
