Just topped my longest this past weekend. 303 yards on a jack rabbit with the Savage 17HMR. 1st shot, using Hordady 17gr V-max.

Knocked a crow out of a tree at 100 yds with one shot from my open sighted Ruger 10-22. Lined up the sights then lifted up the front bead some and down it came! That was about 20 years ago.

Re: Whats your longest rimfire kill?

Know a guy that shot an 8pt at 300yrd with 17hmr and dropped it, also got a nice fine for spotlighting and lost license. also most certainly luck. while squirrel hunting in ouachita mountains with my uncle we started walking the .22 out to a beaver at 550yrds after about 8 shots apiece we were all over it but it would dive before bullet got there lots of fun though. If ever get the chance try it!!!!!!!!!!!! longest for me 130yrd with a H&R auto .22mag squirrel

I'm sure it was a result of your cross traiining Zen Buddha Yoga with Ninja stealth! "Become one with the gun...become one with the gun"

285 on a prairie dog with my Kidd-barrelled Ruger Charger. Shot 1, 3 times in a row at 180 with the same rig.

Personal best was 235-250 paces on a group of prairie dogs. Fired 20 shots, five confirmed kills and a couple more hit and crawled off. Savage Mark II-FV, Mueller APT 4.5-14x40 and Fed bulk 36g HVHP's. Clicked 22 (?) MOA elevation, held for wind.
