    New 22 WMR Ammo for Short Barrels

    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.
