Re: Longest .22lr shots

I once got a sub-moa group at 200 yards with a Marlin 15 and open sights. Never tried it again for fear of ruining the novelty of it. I put a small metal plate on a large board and aimed at the top of the board, just luck I guess.

Re: Longest .22lr shots

My longest shot has been 300 yds. 21 shots all on 8" paper plate, a few grouped pretty well. My best LR .22LR shot was my 200 yd. bullseye. There were some pretty tight groups in that attempt. I have had 1.5 MOA groups at 100 yds.All off hand,with a sling wrap, seated (elbows on knees) or prone on my hunting pack. So far my Marlin 925R is the most accurate .22 I have.
My best kill was a groundhog at 150 yds. back east on my uncles horse farm. Hit him dead in the chest standing on his hind legs. This was with a Marlin lever action.

Re: Longest .22lr shots

Dang, those are some long shots. I never think of a .22lr killing at those distances. I need to get a better scope on mine.
Maico, What cartridge did you use for the 310 hog?
