Hornady and Speer now list 22 WMR ammo specifically for short barrel guns.
Hornady's 45 gr Critical Defense claims 1,000 fps from a 1 7/8" barrel and 100 fpe.
Speer's 40 gr Gold Dot Short Barrel Personal Protection claims 1,150 fps from a 2" barrel and 99 fpe.
I've always preferred the FMJ loads in the 22 WMR from the small revolvers.
But, I'm glad to see new 22 WMR ammo that gives a little more velocity from pistols.
Thanks for the post! The Critical Defense 45 gr was tested out of a 1 7/8" bbl and the test results were re assuring. Gonna find some asap!
