Re: Whats your longest rimfire kill?

I wouldn't have believed it if I wasn't there but I watched my buddy kill a rock chuck at 304 yards with his 17 HMR. He hit him right between the eyes and turned his head into a canoe (I got to watch his head explode through the scope of my 22-250). I've watched that same buddy routinely kill rock chucks between 125 and 250 yards with his 17 but 304 was by far the longest and still amazes me.

Re: Whats your longest rimfire kill?

A few years ago I killed a coyote with a .17HMR at almost 250 yards with a lucky shot to the eye. Last year I shot a coyote with a .22LR at about 175. She took a couple of shots but luckily for me the first one spined her and she was unable to run away. The next two to the head finished it.

Re: Whats your longest rimfire kill?

About 35 years ago, before I knew better about shooting safely, I hit a duck in a waterhole from 100 yards away with my dad's Smith & Wesson K-22 revolver. Blew his head of, hitting him just below the eye. Fluke? You bet!!!
