Default .22 Magnum ammo in a revolver

Happened to find a data sheet of some chronograph results with .22 Magnum ammo. The guns used were two S&Ws, a 48 with a 8 3/8" barrel and a 4" 63 that had an extra 651 cylinder fitted. I still have the 63 but sold the 48 about 2 years ago..

I have data for all rounds when fired through the 48. I only did about a 1/3 of them through the 63. Where there is only one number that will mean that the ammo was only shot in the 48. If a second lower number is present than that would be the 63.

A lot of shooters say that .22 Magnum from a handgun is a waste of money... Most of the .22 LR ammo I've clocked from a 4" revolver didn't make 1000 fps...for killing game or personal defense, I'll take the extra 2-300 fps any time...

Somewhere I have another data sheet with more guns/ammo tests...
