A gang member shot another with a .22 Mag rifle at an upward angle. The bullet entered his left rear side, went through a kidney, stomach and liver, bounced off of the rib, went back through the liver, went through both lungs, and lodged in his shoulder. It never exited. Twenty-twos do not have the mass to break the rib and exit as most heavier rounds do. In this case, if the shooter had been using a heavier round the wound could have been survivable. This is why they are so deadly.
This is interesting to hear. Essentially a .22 CAN be deadlier, if shot at the right angle
