Haven't shot it but, have been seeing more and more about it. I had planned on going back and reading about it but, got sidetracked.

Looked at a Rock Island 1991 .22 TCM

Is the .22 TCM round the same price as .22 LR?

AMMOTOGO.COM has it for 23.95 for 50 rounds, so it's
more expensive than .22lr.

Damn. Ive been thinking lately about getting a .22 pistol for practice and that looked like a sure deal.

My first time to look at this round. What the heck is it's use? I bet the ballistics are unreal.

I've never shot one. Although it's frequently reported as having a 22 caliber bullet in a necked down 9mm brass, that's not true. The parent brass is actually a moderately shortened 223 Rem or a mildly shortened 221 Fireball. According to this website, it pushes a 40 grain, 0.224" bullet at 2000 fps from a 5" barrel. What's is for? I guess one could use it for shooting vermin using an 1911 or for making an 1911 into a cheap man's 5.7x28.

ETA: Forgot the LINK

I agree with Tiger. I don't really see a practical purpose for it and I bet it will be expensive for a long time. 23 bucks for 50 rounds is like 357 sig expensive. I'd rather buy 100 9mm rounds for less.

I bet the defensive rounds are even more expensive.
