My CZ452A LH .22LR with a 10x Super Sniper put 10 shots into 4 1/2" at 200 yards using Fed Gold Medal ammo.

Re: Longest .22lr shots

Just last week I killed a prairie dog with my 10/22 topped with a 6-24X BSA Contender from 282 paces. Give or take for how many actual yards.

Re: Longest .22lr shots

Are you calling a preacher a liar?

I do the majority of my shooting with my 10/22. Hitting a p-dog once or twice at over 200+ yards doesn't mean that anyone is claiming they can do it every time. Frankly, I think it's probably easier than making a 1000+ yard shot with a .308, but that's just my opinion. You don't see me crying foul on the guys who can make those long shots, just because I've never made one.

Re: Longest .22lr shots

The Preacher, Only the poster knows whether he is lying or not.

The only thing any one with just a little experience with a 22 rifle and a little judgement can be certain about is the fact that this thread is very short of cows and very long on bull. Because of gravity and wind a 22 rimfire is capable of only so much range and so much accuracy. Beyond that the bull creeps in.

and ...... I feel that every hunter should have ethics enough to have reasonable expections of making a clean and humane kill when he pulls the trigger. Any and every animal worthy enough to be used as a target desrves that much respect. That means the gun used should be capable (with enough power and enough inherent accuracy) and the shooter should be capable (with enough experience gained on targets) to have reasonable expectations of making a clean kill when the shot is made on an animal. If we don't do this we as hunters are earning the disrespect and wrath that anti hunters love to dish out on us. Is this asking to much of us as hunters or are we just care free shooters? I don't mean to be dumping on any one in this thread. I have been guilty of shooting at animals beyond my cability and/or the capability of my equipment at times during my younger years so I am not implying that I am any better than anyone else ....but this is something we need to think about, isn't it?

Re: Longest .22lr shots

Alfred it is amazing to me how many deer are shot each year within 100yds and are never found because of a poorly placed shot and with 300mags and such. I used to be jealous of people that could shoot better than I could so I went to practicing and I found that a 22lr was the very thing to help me hone my skills and very soon I was shooting everything as good if not better than the folks I was jealous of. So I guess I'm saying don't be a naysayer till you try shooting a 22lr at long range...you will truly be amazed what you can do with one and now there are competition matches popping up all across the US doing long range matches. Shooting a 22lr at 3-400yds is like shooting a high power rifle at 1000yds. Try it.
