This .22 WMR bullet from CCI is designed to almost explode, or show extreme fragmentation, when used from a rifle on small rodents or varmints. And that it does—it is simply wicked on prairie dogs. Due to the drastic reduction in velocity from the short-barreled North American Arms Pug revolver, however, this bullet performed more like a controlled expansion bullet. It expanded almost 1.5 times its original diameter and penetrated 8 inches in the block of 10 percent ordnance gelatin.
