Default Hornady's Critical Defense .22 Mag ?

Has anybody had a chance to try the Hornady C.D. 45 gr. .22 Mag from a short barrel handgun ? I've been seening their ads for sometime now but have been unable to locate any. Interested in trying them in 2" NAA Black Widow. Many thanks, dgang

MidwayUSA say's they're getting them on 10/24/2011. I haven't seen anything on them until just now. Didn't even know they were making them. They use the same FTX (Flex Tip Expanding) bullets that all the LeverRevolution ammo use, which I have heard good reports from. I've used the 30-30 LeverRevolution, and while I haven't hunted with it, it shoots more accurately than flat nosed ammo in my rifle.

I'm sure this will be some good ammo, and at $15 for 50, isn't too terribly high priced.

*EDIT* Just looked it up on Hornady's website, and it says that the powder is optimized for short barrels, so it should perform well in your pistol.

I wonder if Kel-Tec's PMR 30 pistol had anything to do with this. 30 rnds of 22 mag.

It certainly makes an argument for them, doesn't it?

Even my henchmen think I'm crazy,
I'm not surprised that you agree.
