    It is very common translation from German.
    Waffe is very commonly to identify firearms in German. Although they do have a word for firearms "Feuerwaffe" which is not commonly used in general context of sport shooting firearms.

    Soooooo yadda yadda yadda marketing yadda yadda.
    Is it increased propellant load? Change in projectile G shape dimensions? Heavier projectile pushed by faster burning powder?
    What makes it so different than any other
    .22LR out there to make it achieve such "long range" capabilities?
    Looks like a 40gr bullet with a pretty low muzzle velocity for a 20" barrel.
    It must be some magical bullet shape then?
    Guns only have two natural enemies; politicians and rust.

    All good questions!
    Yes, it does use different propellant compared to the other target ammo from SK line.
    Taking it much faster destabilizes the round, which would not make it suitable for target shooting, so although it does seem low, it is pushing the velocity as close as possible to the sonic speed.
    At the end we can debate the stats to the end of time, however they do not prove that the ammo is more accurate.
    Shooting it does. Preliminary tests are looking really good, but I think that is better affirmed by other shooters, rather than us the dealer.

    Outdated viewpoint.

    Guys with centerfire rigs are dropping more money on their .22 precision long range rigs than their "real" gun.

    Why?

    Simulate shooting long range, without needing the space. Almost perfectly and much, much lower ammo cost. I don't know about you but I can't afford to shoot .308+ at the same amount as I would .22LR.

    Look at PRS and NRL 22 matches.

    I have not had a chnace to field test the ammo yet but I did notice that it is very "slick" feeling without leaving any residue on your hands. It seems like some kind of a dry lubricant. That in itself is a great upgrade.

    Ahh yes. There are many posts about lubricant that is used on SK ammo. Some people really dislike it and go out of their way to get rid of it. Many posts on that on other forums.
