When I was growing up I shot many, many rabbits on my grandparents' property with a .22 rifle. I used all sorts of standard velocity and high velocity 40 grain rounds in HP and non-HP. I also used a lot of CCI Stingers. The Stingers were far more devastating than any of the other rounds. I had a lot more immediate one-shot-kills with the Stingers than with any other ammo. But I was also shooting rabbits and usually at less than 50 yards. With larger animals and at longer distances I can see how Stingers could underperform.
