.22lr 500 yards

I have been looking around this site for a while. awesome site!!!! so i figured i would register....

I shoot mostly .22lr because its cheap and super fun

Anyways i figured you guys would get a kick out of this

The picture of the target is actually upside down from when shot, it was on the edge of a 50 foot cliff so i pulled it back to take some pictures

And here are a few videos, turn your volume up, its hard to hear the hits..
I have a few videos on my youtube channel so check them out if ya want. I have alot of fun making these videos and shooting

Re: .22lr 500 yards

Considering how low the BC and velocity of the .22LR are you've done real well.

thats pretty neat. I think I gotta try it. I got a kick out of how it barely marks the steel!

And I was proud of myself for hitting a 4" plate at 230 yards. Very impressive shooting indeed.

Re: .22lr 500 yards

I used to shoot my .22 at a 15" plate at 400 yards. I never tried any further as the probablitity of a hit due to the rifle's accuracy would be almost luck. You seem to have it down pretty good. That is one of the best ways to practice your wind calls.
Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.

The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.

Re: .22lr 500 yards

You have very cute daughter. My daughter is 4yrs old too. She hasn't been to the range yet, but has played with my boys red rider. She will be a shooter for sure. Nice shooting with the .22LR. I like playing with them as well. What for ammo are you using?
