I know several carry them. I have a couple magnums. When I tested some ammo, shooting at 1/16" aluminum, the hollow points would just flatten out. I got some federal FMJ that did better but now its time to load up some new rounds since those have been in there a while.
What do you guys keep loaded? Ammo's come a good ways since I loaded those.

I keep CCI Maxi-mags in mine. From a short barrel @ short range, I don't think it matters if it's a HP or fully coated. A HP isn't going to have time to shroon out...shoot what gives you the deepest penetration. JMHO

Penetration would be at a premium in .22! They are all soft lead so it probably won't matter! I wonder if the magnums have wasted powder similar to the .357 from short barrels.

Yup, I clean a little more "smut" after shooting with the mag cylinder, as opposed to the LR one... not too much, but just enough to tell.
