you know i think your an awesome dude & great member here on the board, but your kinda cheating on your stance in this.. :-)
its an unfair compare anytime you take a 3" vs a 10"... any woman can tell that story. LMAO
im a numbers guy... so yes i read exactly what you posted.. & it happens that i like the exact ammo you listed.
but i also own & shoot both of these guns. They are not equal when in similar set ups.
22mag 3" barrel... 1150fps/117lbs..
22lr 3" barrel ....950fps/80lbs... NOT THE SAME..... 37 more pounds is a pretty good bit.
you can take a 45acp vs 9mm & get the same type of numbers if you use the correct barrel lengths... but they aint the same animal either.
how many people actually have a 10" 22lr pistol in their pocket? uh..... NONE
most people have a 3-5" 22lr pistol in a walther p22 or ruger..
& you have this 4" pmr30 in 22mag...
compare these heads up & actually shoot/test them. which has been done lots of places on the net already. the results are not the same.
but agree with you..... i dont carry this gun for "invader defense".. still use the FNHerstal for that.
this PMR30 is great for in the woods & when we ride. its light, doesnt mind dirt or dust or mud from riding. easy to clean & yes it will handle any herd of creatures we stumble on & still have ANOTHER 20 rnds left over. very nice on that part.
