    Good to know Siafu. I was basing my suggestion on this, (see Table 3) doesn't include the Velocitor though.

    as I sometimes carry my little Beretta 21A tip up. I haven't experienced a feed issue with either the Bobcat or my Buckmark. Guess I need to research this further since I've been lucky till now. Thanks

    I'd carry a revolver chambered in .22 WMR (Magnum) and I'd select FMJ ammo as supplied by Federal or Sellier & Bellot for quality assurance.

    Anything jacketed. I don't honestly believe that there is any real world difference in stopping power between the various .22LR rounds.

    I've tried many, many different types of .22 in my Sig Mosquito and the only one that I tried that functioned perfectly was CCI Mini-Mags. That said, nothing else really matters to me.

    If I was carrying a .22 for my CC or BUG, it would have to function perfectly, no matter what the cost.

    I think the important thing about carrying a .22 is the gun itself more than the ammo. Most .22's are big enough that you lose something vs a larger caliber.
    The NAA mini comes in .22 wmr and weighs just 6 ounces. Any other .22 I've seen, you may as well step up to a pocket auto (P-32, P3AT, LCP, etc)
    Many .22 revolvers are as big and heavy as the .38's made by the same company. Not really a consideration for SD.

    Edit: This was an afterthought, sorry. If you're trying to work with what you have, due to tight funding, and buying a new SD weapon isn't an option for you, go with the high velocity, highest grain you can find.

    Most of my .22 ammo is CCI...

    I carry a Beretta Bobcat a lot when I am at home or out working on my property. It has never failed while using CCI ammo.

    I have never had one single "Bad" bullet with CCI Stingers. Positive ignition, reliable.

    CCI Segmented HP, if it feeds in the gun. It has the long Stinger case.

    I keep some Velocitor ammo on hand just in case. Now I am thinking I might want to try some match ammo. Thanks for the suggestion, QKShooter.

    I guessing you're talking standard .22 here, not .22 Mag. In that case, due to its limited power in any case: any .22LR that feeds reliably. There's not much difference in "knockdown" power as far as stopping a human is concerned. I don't think it would matter if they were solid or HP.
