barrel length for 22wmr
Two recent threads on 22lr as a self defense round and another about barrel length got me to thinking about the 22wmr as a concealed carry round. Internet sources show that the 22wmr is much more powerful than the 22lr. But I have read some folks' statements that in a short barrel gun (maybe a 2 inch snub nose that one might CC), there is not enough time for all that extra powder to burn, resulting in the 22wmr producing no more actual power than the 22lr in a short barrel gun. How much truth is there in this? It seems that the 22 magnum would be a nice step up for my wife relative to her 22lr beretta bobcat (she really doesn't like shooting my ruger lcr 38).
