There has been some recent development in .22 mag. Hornady makes a load they call Critical Defense. Jacketed HP with a polymer point to enhance expansion. CCI makes a load with jacketed HP Gold Dot bullets and Federal makes a load with their TNT expanding bullet. In my very unscientific testing, I got the best performance from a pistol with the Federal stuff. Higher velocity and the bullet expanded to about 9mm.

You might wanna try a fatter bullet, like the Federal Game-Shok 50-grain

I have sent a lot of 40 grain Winchester, both fmj & semi jacketed hp, white box down range from mine. 40 grain CCI also shoots well.

CCI Maxi Mag is a good rifle round. The new Speer Gold Dot is good for handguns.

OK, you just bought the worst .22 mag ammo I have ever used. They shoot like a flat marble. If you expect the CCI maxi mag to expand, it does but as it penetrates, but does not explode like a 17gr .17 HMR. The key is penetration. I use it for Coyotes out to 75 yards.
