A few years ago my friend and poster on GBO Rebel1 were doing a redneck penetration test on 22 cal ammo. We were using dry magazines as the medium. We tested 22 LR and 22 Mag ammo. He had a a Heritage 22mag, I believe with a 6 in barrel.He had several different rounds to try. Some solid and a couple HP, and diff weights.We got better penetration with the Heritage using 22lr stingers than any of the 22 mag rounds. Really came as a surprise to us.We didn't have a 22 mag rifle to test, and I;m sure it would have beat them all by a long shot.
Now that I have a Heritage with both cyl's,I'll look for ammo specifically designed for pistols.
I don't think of myself as a staunch Republican or Democrat.
I am a Christian and a Conservative...........In that order!
