Maico, What cartridge did you use for the 310 hog?
The Russian steel case ammo with the rooster on the box...about 1080FPS out of my rifle.

Subsonic is the key for long distance accuracy with 22s!

Re: Longest .22lr shots

So under 1150 fps.? Correct me if I'm wrong, once the bullet drops below supersonic it loses fps. more rapidly than a rd. fired subsonic. Therefore loses trajectory and consequently accuracy.
