I've never had a problem with the  22 HP because that's all I usually buy (because I have never had a problem and see no need to purchase the round nose for my usages.). I will not knock the round nose though... here is how we do it....
Warning: the following is not for the squeamish..

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

I'm pretty sure the bullets we have for the .22 LR are these.  https://www.remington.com/rimfire/22-thunderbolt/29-21241.html
I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.

Those should not cause fragmentation Reagan. Personally I would simply follow iddees advice given in reply #25.

I highly recommend an instant pot.  I have the 10 qt pot, but they come smaller.  There's no bad meat with one of these things.  + if you are like me and forget to take stuff out of the freezer...
And there are other brands.  My first electric pressure cooker was not instant pot.  I wanted to make sure I'd use it so I got a knock off.  Used it until I broke it and then got a good one   :grin:

They go on sale from time to time but aren't too expensive even at full price.  Makes a great pot of chili too!

Really good.  There are different machines with different options, but the basics are the same.  For some roasts, I brown them first, but usually, I just dump them in the pot with seasoning.  I add the veggies later and cook again for another 20 min or so.  I buy 1/2 a cow at a time so we have lots of roasts.  + we buy pork and chicken in bulk when it goes on sale. 

Makes great pulled pork and pulled chicken.

On squirrels, I usually use .22 short because they're quieter and because I still have a bunch of 'em left from a great deal 30 years ago.

I like 22 shorts for squirrels also for the same reason. But I have a 22 that only handles LR so the '22 LR Subsonic' makes  a decent substitute..

Pretty sure. I mean, they were shiny and metal.
