    .22LR SD Ammo

    If there is such a thing, what would be the best SD ammo for the .22LR?

    Some good info found here:

    Because .22LR is often very short on penetration, the usual technique is to fire bursts to the head, hoping to get a penetrating shot into the ocular cavity. Basically, shoot 'em in the eye.

    i would have to say the yellowjackets at hypervelocity

    and yes I consider the 22lr for defense to be the
    eye ear nose and throat doctor

    From the looks of the test results I have to say that I liked the CCI Quik Shok 32 gr. HP. They did just what they were supposed to do. They broke apart inside & that is going to cause a nasty wound that only a trained Doctor & some X-Rays are going to fix properly.

    I wish I could find some around here but I can only find them online & the shipping cost kills that idea.

    I would second the Quick Shok's as well. It's what I keep in my little Beretta tip-up. CCI in general have been the most reliable .22lr brand that I've used so far, with only one misfire in thousands of rounds.

    The Yellowjackets mentioned above might be a good choice, but they have a slightly wierd bullet shape that doesn't always feed well in an automatic. They do seem to pack a wallop for a .22 though. Shoot several hundred before carrying.
