    whats the best .22 round for squrrels

    Most states require that if you use a .22 you must use .22 long rifle hollow tips.

      I have always used Federal .22 long rifle hollow point. I pick up a box of 500 rounds or so and that last me a little while. That is the joy of a .22 there ammo is cheap. Hopefully it stays that way.

        Whatever is accurate in your gun. Personally, I don't think the .22 hollow points add much in the way of killing power for squirrels. A .22 to a squirrel is like a 12 ga slug to a coyote. Have never seen any tests, though. The bullets I've found were just deformed rather than expanded. Head shots have worked best for me, so expansion is a moot point. Actually, come to think of it, I have killed many squirrels with .177 flat point pellets.

          Like usmcturkey said, a 22 hp knocks them off a limb better than a solid.

            Hollow Points or Solids really doesn’t matter because you don’t have the sectional density in a squirrel for a hollow point and for what matters most is the accuracy that counts!

                          Standard velocity solid point.

                          Rabbit police I don't know about that hollow point requirement. I don't see it in the GA regs...

                            I like Hollow Points. I shoot Blazer and CCI and remington. Although CCI are DANG expensive.

                              Any of 'em. You gotta shoot well.
