I've had quite a few squirrels run after a good hit if it's not a head shot.
The only thing my pellet rifles have over my .22's is the cheaper cost to shoot and they are heavier and louder...Contrary to popular belief, a head shot is not necessarily a guaranteed kill shot....but it sure does take the fight out of 'em.

I have one of those Small Game Bullet tools that you put a 22LR round in it and can file a flat tip consistently on the bullet nose making it into a SWC bullet with 2 heights that can be filed. Definitely makes them more effective over round nose lead bullets for hunting. It works on the CCI Quiet 22's. You could make one with a stack of washers for the 22. I have made them with washers for filing a flat tip on 9mm and 380 ammo for more effective FMJ performance and a lot cheaper than buying hollowpoint ammo for game dispatch or eradication.
