    A poor choice but better than throwing rocks. Far as I know, FMJ would be best bet and personally, I'd only consider a wheel gun as reliability of .22 mag semi auto pistols is fail. If that's one has access to, then it is what it is, but would be a hard pass as a choice if a choice exists.

    Where are you finding 22 magnum ammo? My PMR-30 is a jammomatic.

    Look at the price difference between 22Magnum and 9mm. You wouldn't be saving much at all and you'd be greatly limiting your pistol purchase options.
