22lr is a GREAT cartridge for assassination. it is the hitman's choice of cartridge due to the fact that it has enough kinetic energy to enter the skull, but not enough to leave and bounces around inside scrambling people's brains. 22 caliber cartridges are involved in more cases of domestic gun death than all other cartridges combined.

in addition, the amount of forensic evidence that can be collected with a revolver murder is diminished-- the shell casing stays inside the revolver until emptied, and the barrel tracings it leaves on the bullet are much smaller. while the signature left on a bullet from a well-fired pistol is unlike any other and can easily be matched with a recovered murder weapon, a round fired from a short-barrel revolver has plausible deniability-- the barrel tracings could belong to hundreds of other revolvers.

if a 22 bullet is hollow point and fired from a short barreled revolver, it is impossible to match it with a recovered murder weapon

the more you know!
