I've yet to see any proof of that. There is a record of it having been used a bit abroad for one simple reason: you can buy .22 ammunition almost anywhere in the western hemisphere without raising too much suspicion.

The choice of cartridge is due to availability and convenience more than it is some undocumented magical wounding effect.
