Default CCI mini mag?

I just bought a box, and I noticed some are hollow point and some aren't, any reason?

What does the box say? If you don't want the plated or hollow points, take them back to the store and ask them why.

Then come back and tell us what they said!!

The box just says CCI Mini-mag 22LR copper plated round nose. I don't have a problem with the hollow points but I just found it weird they were mixed.

That is really odd. Was the package sealed when you bought it? CCI's QC is normally better than that. The HP's will not cause any problems for you as they are generally barely a pin hole.

I buy a lot of CCI Mini-Mags in both RN and Hollow Point But I never had a box that was mixed. I would just shoot them and not worry about it if it was me. I guess it must have been a Mfg packaging error as was said.

I've used boxes of both HP and RN but never got a box with them mixed.

Never got a mixed box of CCI's before either. I did one time buy a box of Milwaukie Best that had Miller Lite in it. What a disappointment. I drank it anyway though.
