a .22 out of a pistol is just as deadly as a rifle. i for one do not want a 22 pointed at my eyeball.... and for hunting. fox,raccoons, squrriels, chipmunks, mice, cats, bunnies. a .22 works well for all small animals. just use good shot placement

I don't hunt anything that small, though perhaps it's tome to start.

Small game is a lot of fun and the season is longer. Plus it's good practice for big game.

The ballistic info can be founs the web. Depending on what u want to do with the gun matters. 22 will go thru house doors and some walls how ever they are often not good choice for hd in my opinion. No stopping power. For small game u still have to be very accurate shot regardless. I shoot 150 yds at range and get squirrel at 97yds. Marksmanship is really what 22 are great for whether handgun or rifle

According to CCI, the hollow points are for "Varmint". That's what it says on the box. The FMJs say "Target" on their box.

So, the answer is that JHP are not for self-defense, unless you're fighting off a slew of angry varmints...

My father is a huge fan of 22mag cartridge but has to explain to me why or how it packs any more punch, but I've come to the understandong that if you put the term mag behind any caliber it stands for bigger bang in some capacity. I've never actually compared the different rounds side by side, my guess is, however, that I'd see that the "mag" cartridge was larger in some way with more powder behind it, or aomething to the effect.

Hp is good small game round. Does a bit more damage than regular lead coming from my marlin glenfield. As for a self defense 22 cal have had proven results to be effective however i ll stick w shktgun. 22 may not drop someone instantly but the intruder often dies hours or days later without medical help. It tends to fragment and bounce around causing ibternal hemridging

I read it the same way- Perhaps if it was placed in the Concealed section it might have read as you intended-
Anyways- if it wasn't for the 22HP i'd have had a lot less fun as a kid killin small furry critters- Hope todays kids get the same chance with the 'lil critter getter
