Both are specifically made for short barrel handguns. If you use standard .22 magnum ammunition designed for rifle length barrels, you will loose quite a bit of velocity.

I recently picked up several boxes of the Hornady. While I had no way to measure velocity, it worked like a champ out of my four inch barrel S&W 651 revolver.

I really think that out of such a tiny little barrel, the choice of ammo isnt going to matter at all. Yes some ammo makers will claim their brand is better and can "maintain" higher velocities than "brand-X" out of a shorter barreled weapon. However, the difference in velocities versus actual bullet performance amoungst the different brands is miniscule at best.

Out of a tiny "flea" gun, i would just go with the heaviest bullet available off the retailer's shelf.

Just my .02cents worth of worthless opinion.

I've shot a bunch of different rounds out of mine...never really thought about maintaining velocity, since it's a 1 1/8" barrel! It shoots high with the magnums, low with the lr's, and I seem to be the only person that can hit a water bottle at 10 feet with it. Great fun!
