Is there really a difference? A friend asked me this today and I couldn't give him a good answer.
Yes technically speaking and yes Lead Round Nose or Plated Lead Round Nose would have been a more accurate description but why split hairs. I knew what they were talking about here and thats all that really counted anyways right?isnt the ball ammo just fmj?
Not really Ball is just a normal round no hollow point no fancy stuff A ball round can be or not be metal jacket.isnt the ball ammo just fmj?
I think 22lr is over looked a lot when it comes to self defense, no its my first choice in a gun fight but I would not snark my nose at picking it up, for self defense.Shoot someone in the gut, neck, balls, leg, face and chest if you don't deflect off a bone and their not going to having a good day. .22lr can do some damage too and that may be the end of it. That doesn't mean I'm saying to choose it as a defensive rifle or go out with it alone, but that it's still capable.
I carry a fully loaded BX-25 for that kind of scenarioI'd use it if it was in my hands. Note to any undesirables snoping on the forum who's looking to rob people post shtf take that in mind. If I'm in the woods hunting with my 10/22 and you hear me and try to steal my game, I'll unload the rest of the magazine into your gut and jewels.
