I have killed a couple of Armadillos with the Ruger using 22 mag and it does work better than the 22LR. I like the 22 mag. I like the extra power.

My bud got a new burn barrel and wanted some vent holes shot in it. So I used the 22 mag cylinder and every round went through both sides of the steel barrel. Then just for fun I shot the 22LR from the 22 cylinder and the 22lr would go through one side but not one single bullet made it through the other side. A dent yes but no hole.

I can't prove it but I bet that 22 mag round would have went through two barrels. I was using the Winchester FMJ 40gr rounds in the mag load.

I can understand your anger at me, but what could you possibly have against the horse I rode in on?
