i would use the ammo that worked in the gun. i have many different 22 pistols and they like different ammo.

The ammo that most reliably works. I actually carry a .22 as a BUG, CCI Mini Mags.

I understand the ammo that works in the gun. But, If your gun would shoot anything what kind would be your choice.

I would go with a MATCH GRADE Silhouette ammunition.
Possibly something like Lapua Scoremax.

The quality control is so much higher with Match Grade .22 RF.

Hmmm. If I had to carry a 22 rimfire and legally that is all I can carry sometimes because in my state if you hunt during certain seasons or after certain times of day that is all you are allowed to carry, I would be and am more concerned about what type of gun I carry than what type of ammo I carry. Revolver only, thank you.

CCI Stingers are slightly over sized case length which may lead to feeding issues in auto-loaders. CCI Velocitors are standard case length and hyper-velocity. Velocitors are my choice.

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

Terminal Performance of Quik-Shok, CCI Stinger and Remington Viper .22 LR Ammunition

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.
