I've always been partial to Winchester Super-X hollow points.

Re: 22 mag

I use CCI H.p's , they work well but mainly it's because that's about the only shell mine will shoot well.

THe original plain Jane W/W 40 grain hollow points, I've shot all these so called speed rounds and just go back to the originals, save some money and end your search.

Re: 22 mag

the 40 grain or 37 frain hollow points work great out to about 100 yds, dead hog and no running off. After 100 yds unless perfect shot, they tend to get into hole or brush before dying even with the hollow point. cci

Most accurate round out of my Marlin is the 33gr Remington accutips. Wish mine shot cheaper rounds better.
