Well, according to this video, the Velocitors expand, even from a pistol.
Color me impressed...
A better one from Tnoutdoors9. Expansion in gel from a rifle is even better..
For AustinN4, start at the 2:49 mark.
8 minute video! - nope, I'll take your word for it since you already watched it.
Lol, fast forward to the 2:30 mark and watch the next 3 minutes.
None wants to be shot.
No one wants to be shot with a .22.
I suspect that all of us, here, know there are better defensive calibers, of course.
This thread is about "If you....."
The .22 Velocitor seems to answer the OP pretty well.
I'm going to buy some.
Carry the biggest little caliber possible!
I have been using velocitors for a few years. Even shot a small pig with one from about 40 yards. DRT. They by far are the hardest hitting .22lr and do expand reliably. If you can do your part I have little doubt that a .22 will do the job if needed. Obviously there are better choices for most of us, but I can see a reason why some choose it.
while there are more effective rounds available, i prefer CCI #0056 Subsonics because they're extremely quiet in my marlin. kind'a like having a suppressor on it. being able to hear well during a self-defense situation is usually considered an important thing.
I keep electronic ear muffs beside the bed to protect my hearing in the event I need to shoot indoors.
But I'm not going to carry a. 22 as an EDC because I'm worried about my hearing.
I go CCI in my .22's that I use for self defense, but only for the more reliable ignition. As far as bullet type, it doesn't seem to make a big difference if it's a gut shot. Growing up, I saw a few shooting that were from those Rohm RG 22 revolvers that were all over the streets. Never saw anyone get shot in the body core especially if it was a low shot that didn't go down on the pavement doubled up in a fetal position.
Some of the most popular guns in D.C. was those rg 22 revolvers and cheap Italian Galese .25 autos. Later FIE Titan .25's were around a lot, but still a lot of cheap .22 revolvers. They put a lot of people down. They were all loaded with whatever was cheap.
