    including the Ruger 10/22 Target and Tactical rifles, which can result in a hazardous ruptured case and release of hot powder gasses and brass when fired.
    DO NOT USE “STINGER” AMMUNITION IN 10/22 TARGET or TACTICAL RIFLES We can only assume everyone reads their manual?
    Dat'z what I said Moe...you can shootz stingers booo lits ONLY IN THE CAR BEAN 10/22

    I like what Taurahe said, "A good hi velocity HP". How about a 60gr .22 at 3,100fps? That's my entry level SD rifle (5.56 NATO).
    The OP thread is regarding .22 LR options, not comparing other calibers to .22 LR.

    I don't know that "type" of .22 makes a difference, but I'm all for .22 LR solids and letting them bounce around inside the skull.

    The best .22 for defense is a 22-250.
