22 Magnum - Best loads for personal defense?
I have a NAA .22 mag mini-revolver (five shot) and am looking for the best load for maximum stopping power.
I know that many would debate the choice of carrying a .22 mag at all :gah: , but that's not really what I'm looking for here. I understand that my choice to carry this gun has very specific limitations and that many, many other guns would be better for self defense. I also have a Glock .40, a Ruger .45, an HK .380, and a Kel-Tec 9mm, but I would like to have a great load for my .22 mag so that I can rely on it as a BUG or in an extreme case for concealment's sake as my temporary primary.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am currently carrying CCI Maxi-Mag JHP 40 grain. I know, I know, 40 grain would be just enough to fill the "hollow" in my .45 hollow points!!:rolleyes:
Thanks for any help,
