from CCI's page

The future of rimfire is here. CCI Clean-22™ uses an exclusive polymer bullet coating to greatly reduce copper and lead fouling in the barrel—without leaving a residue. It also cuts lead buildup in suppressors 60 to 80 percent. Both the Sub-Sonic and High Velocity loads feature a 40-grain round nose lead bullet with geometry that's been optimized for accuracy. With dependable CCI priming and consistent propellant, Clean-22 provides flawless cycling through semi-automatics and all 22 LR firearms.

FEATURES & BENEFITS
• Polymer bullet coating greatly reduces lead fouling in the barrel without leaving residue
• Cuts lead buildup in suppressors 60 to 80 percent
• 40-grain lead round nose bullets—red for High Velocity, blue for Sub-Sonic
• Optimized bullet geometry for improved accuracy
• Reliable function in semi-automatic firearms
• Great option both casual and competitive shooters

I suspect this is the same stuff they had a few Christmas's ago with the red & green projectiles, but with added marketing.

How do you get powder burns on your face, shooting a pistol?

It's a 5.56 ar pistol with a 22 conversion on it my face is close to the ejection port.

Some of my friends sat it doesnt happen on their builds. Maybe it's my cheap golden bullets I use.

I'm pretty well stocked up on 22LR but would try some if available at an LGS.
While they say it reduces lead build up - I wonder if it is just replaced by polymer build up in stead? They don't say which polymer the coating is but if Teflon then it has almost the same melting point as lead ~ 630°F. Run a swap thru the bore after a range session and see what color comes out?
