.22 hollow point

Post by Dockokol on Thu Oct 17, 2013 9:15 am

I am watching my stock of .22 dwindle and its time to see what I can buy.  In the past I bought CCI for my model 46, but it looks like I am going to have to find an alternative for practice ammo.  Ive found some Winchester .22, (super-X power point, 40 grain plated lead round nose) but it is hollow point.  Is the hollow point an issue?

Accuracy is accuracy....get it where you can.

The issue may be how well your Smith and Wesson will function with that load.  At a minimum; you may have to adjust the recoil spring weight to get proper functioning.

Some of our 41 users made recoil absorbers as follows; obtain 7/16 dia plastic tubing (Hdw, Lowes, Home Depot) and cut 1/4 to 3/8 inch from a squared end.

Insert at the base of recoil spring & guide.

You can do this if your spring feels a bit weak when firing the "Hi Speed" stuff and you don't have or want to get another spring.
