Hornady CD 22 Wmr I have shot almost all brands of 22 Magnum ammo with three rifles. I shoot off a bench with a scope to check accuracy. I just bought some Hornady Critical Defense and shot it. I had three misfires out of 42 bullets, that's the bad news. Good news is they are as accurate as anything I've shot. I shot into water jugs to check expansion and retention, and was pleased with the mushroomed bullet. I'll have to live with the misfires, I'm shooting a lever action Henry, and can get another in there in a hurry. I hope they can make them so they go off every time. June 14, 2014
