I've had very good luck with the CCI Maxi-Mag TNTs (30 grain Speer Gold Dot bullet, semi-jacketed large mouth hollow point). They leave the muzzle at around 2,350FPS from my 22-inch barreled 982S and are very accurate for high-velocity ammo.

I haven't fired enough groups to be sure exactly how close they are to the accuracy of the regular 40 grain CCI Maxi-Mag JHPs, but it seems very close. And you get a little flatter flightpath thanks to the extra 350FPS or so of velocity with the TNTs.

The terminal performance just can't be compared. The Jacketed HPs do a lot of damage for a .22 rimfire, but the TNTs are positively explosive. You'll still get decent penetration but the size of the wound channel is outrageous.
