Decided to do a little armature testing to find the best carry load for my 2" barrel .22mag snubbie. I picked these as the most likely candidates- CCI Maxi-Mag +V HP 30gr. CCI Maxi-Mag TNT 30gr. CCI Gold Dot 50gr. Remington Premier Ballistic tip 30gr. Winchester Supreme JHP 34gr. All rounds were fired into a stack of newspaper that had been soaked for about 36 hours. Distance was about six feet. Sorry no Jell-O test. I was going to try it, got the recipe went to the grocery store then figured what it was going to cost. The stuff I read on the web seems to indicate that wet newsprint is decent second choice and should give about 75% of the penetration of ballistic gelatin. For what that's worth. *Winchester Supreme JHP 34gr. Penetrated- 5" expansion - .362 Bullet expanded and held together nicely. Large wound channel with expansion within the first inch. *CCI Maxi-Mag TNT 30gr. Penetration- 5" Expansion- Frag. Bullet/Jacket separation. Only the jacket was recovered, large wound channel expansion within the first inch *CCI Gold Dot 50gr. Penetration- 10" Expansion- .223 No expansion, bullet appeared to yaw in the last few inches. *CCI Maxi-Mag +V HP 30gr. Penetration- 6" Expansion-.285 Jacket/Core seperation jacket not recovered *Remington Premier Ballistic tip 30gr. Penetration- 8" Expansion- .223 Plastic tip not recovered Most of the rounds seemed to penetrate more than I thought they would. I don't know if that's because the .22 Mag. kicks or maybe the newspaper was a little too wet. I meant to do the testing two days ago but got sidetracked. The wound channels from the Winchester and TNT rounds were very impressive. I never would have guessed a .22 did that. The TNT round has been my carry load for awhile now but I might switch to the Winchester supreme if more testing indicates good ignition reliability and accuracy in my gun. I've thought about switching for more penetration but the JHP's are pretty impressive. Or maybe mixing rounds in the cylinder ?
