Re: The .22LR as a Long Range Tool?
When I was in high school, I shot .22's alot. I've got 4 target rifles and a couple plinkers and pistols. I made a 12" square plate, and hung it from a piece of re-bar and painted it white, and would shoot it out to 250 yards. Have a winchester 52B with a 8-32X target scope with the 1/8 min. target dot, it could hit empty .22 brass and aspirin pills at 100 yards pretty easily. And those little green plastic army men. I used to be able to get Ely ammo, they stopped carrying it here locally. I ought to start shooting my .22's some more. I always thought it would be cool to shoot crows or squirrels from 300 yards or so. Put out a corn pile or something. I used to put out deer scraps and road kill along our field edge at 180 yards, and shoot whatever came out there.
7mm What? What's that stand for?
