Federal Punch .22lr “defense ammo”

Anyone seen or used these yet? Seems like an HST in rimfire form, better be good for .21 cents per round…

This topic came up back in the spring if you're interested in the old thread. Haven't seen any of the ammo around, or heard any more about it myself.

I hope I never find myself relying on a .22lr for self defense...

Not surprised. Tnoutdoors9 did a gel test with different .22s out a Ruger 10/22. The jacketed 40gr MiniMags were the nastiest. Deep penetration. And it tumbles. The tumbling made for some nasty cavities.

Personally I'd stick with 40gr MiniMags. The fancy federal ammo might be too light to penetrate consistently.

Its velocity is rated from a 2 inch barrel. Hot load and lighter bullet.

Penetration is all well and good. It can take minutes to bleed out a hole in your aorta. Minutes an attacker has to keep on going. The energy in this thing is concerning. It’s been a while, but let’s recall the idea is to incapacitate an attacker. Unless you get this projectile into a noggin (29g at 1100 fps?) and skull penetration is tenuous at those numbers. Your guy may not even realize he’s been hit and regardless of shot placement, he’s going to have a minute or two of fight at the very least. This round probably can’t even get to the brainstem on a perfectly placed avocado shot. Too much bone. I wouldn’t touch this.
