    Pretty interesting article from last year. Since I often carry my .22mag LCR, and it was the model used in the article, it was of particular interest to me. They tested a variety of brands including the Hornady CD, which is also what I load mine with.

    In addition, they made some good points (which we're all really familiar with) regarding gel tests vs real life including comparisons of larger calibers. And I agree with the author's bottom line. If all you have available is a short barrel .22wmr you better pull the trigger till the gun is empty. ;)

    Worth reading, imo. :)

    It is a potent little cartridge. I had a friend that survived being shot with a 25 acp. when he was a Constable. He had trouble with his arm and hand years later. A 22 mag is a lot hotter than the 25.
    I read the article, I believe that accuracy is the key with the 22 mag. or 22 LR.
