.22 mag ammo



Log in to see fewer ads
Can anyone suggest a good .22 mag ammo for my SS. I understand .22 mag ammo is loaded for rifles, so what's the starting point for revo's?

Thanks in advance to you all experts

Try different ammo

I own several and Winchester ammo works ok in all of them. Each gun and person is different, like the Ford and Chevy debate thing. Shoot some of everything off a bench on paper and see what you do best with in your gun. So far all of mine shoot the old Winchester Dyna points well. They are cheap and work for what I use them for. Some people hate them and shoot other stuff. The Winchester 40 grain hollow point load works in a lot of guns and is only a couple of dollars more.

My RSS's likes Winchester ammo, I have three of them.

For plinking and general purpose I like the Winchester 22 mag. Dynapoints. They are 45 gr. copper washed lead, not jacketed.

For serious shooting I break out the Winchester Super X Supremes. These are the most accurate 22 mag. I have found that shoot well in the RSS.

Most 22 mag. are designed for Rifles and do not shoot well in short barrels. Not so with the above Winchester's.

Nonsense. Cartridges are loaded with powder appropriate to the cartridge, not the firearm. The same powders that will yield the highest velocities in rifles will also yield the highest velocities in handguns. That is, the same type of slow burning powders used in magnum revolver cartridges. That said, your typical 40gr .22Mag load will run around 1400fps out of a revolver.

My Single Six's do not like the lighter bullets as well as my S&W M48 and I've tried a lot of it. Your gun might just love them. I'd start out with WW 40gr SuperX and/or CCI Maxi Mags, either in HP or solid. I believe it will at least give you a good baseline to compare the lighter weight bullets. I have some Federal Champion 40gr FMJ's and their 50gr JHP Game-Shock's I havn't tried yet.

Finding out what shoots best in a .22 mag handgun can get expensive. If I were to recommend only one to start with, it would be the 40gr WW's.

Not if the manufacturer wanted to load a basic rifle cartridge to more user friendly levels for use in revolvers. Sorry to disagree
