NAA and .22 mag ammo?

I will soon be bringing home a NAA .22 mag with the 1 1/8" barrel and the holster grip.
I'm looking for a good carry ammo. I know Speer makes the GD and Hornady the CD in .22 mag but should I stick with the standard lead round for carry or try the JHPs that are on the market?

Yes I used the search feature on here, no I didn't find any answers.

Keep the wheelhouse alive!

On top of whatever you learn here, I would recommend also checking out www.rimfirecentral.com -- those guys LIVE rimfires over there, and they have unique forums for just about everything rimfire-related, including the .22 WMR.

One guy over there did an interesting test using a Black Widow and four water-filled plastic gallon milk jugs, lined up in a row. He used one of the new defense-oriented .22 mags (can't recall which one, but I believe it was Hornady). The bullet went through 3 of the jugs before stopping in the fourth, and showed adequate expansion at the end.

At the behest of forumites, he also did the test with the old stand-by CCI Maxi-Mag hollow-point. The bullet went through the first jug, and IIRC, stopped short of going through the skin of the second jug. Granted, this was a less than empirical test -- but that lack of penetration dissuaded me from the notion of considering the Maxi-Mag HP as any sort of defense round, at least from a short-barreled handgun.
