22 mag pistol

If you mean a semi-auto, they were made in the 80's and not too successful. I had several and they were quite a blaster, yet not accurate. Ammo is much better now and I got a 6" S&W 648, stainless 6-sot revolver. Took 15 pdogs with it in one day driving a field in E. Colorado!! My first was a solid 50 yards and I held the head, thinking about drop, and missed clean. My partner called the shot, I held the belly, and plopped him hard! Shoot the Remington poly-tip and Federal 30gr. Premium. Lots of fun and a great trigger to boot. Bob

The only auto I'm familiar with is the AMT automag, my dad has one and it actually feeds really well.

Ruger makes a nice looking .22 mag revolver.

i have 2...

one is a taurus 8 shot revolver.....shoots well...the other is the automag 4".....trigger is a little stiff on the AMT but it shoots better than i can shoot it. this was my fav carry gun when lion hunting for yrs.....this gun has killed four lions.....3 were one shot kills....good bullet placement, the other got a little scary ...in my opinion the 22 mag caliber is way under rated...i have seen it used with great succes in several situations..also own 2 rifles in this caliber..both are tackdrivers.....one is an anshutz woodchucker....great little kids gun that stretches their range over a 22rf greatly......

Can you tell what your groups are with the AMT at 25 yds or whatever range you have used and with the brand of ammo used.

Thanks,

Bill
