Re: Whats your longest rimfire kill?

One of the guys that I go p-dogging with got one at confirmed 304yds with my 10/22 and subsonic match hollow point ammo. I won't know how many rounds he fired to get that one, but if it was like the rest of our endeavors, it was a "few".

300 yds for me with savage 17 HMR with cabelas scope that came on it. I love that rifle almost as much as I like my 17 Fireball.

Groundhog, Savage 93R17 with heavy barrel and Burris Fullfield II 3-9x40 Ballistaplex reticle, 20gr Gamepoint HMR, lasered at 417 yards. It took 6 shots to walk in for the wind, but connected with a neck shot. The groundhog went 20 yards before expiring. Bullet was recovered just under skin with minimal expansion (tip gone, hp opened up, but widest diameter was still .177. I will never try it again, I have a .223 now for anything beyond 100, and am working on a 7mm-08.

Re: Whats your longest rimfire kill?

Got a prairie dog at 283 with my Cooper .17 HMR a couple months ago. I was able to shoot all winter out on the Utah desert. Got a few marmots last year out around the 270 yard mark with the .17, and 170 with the .22 LR.

Re: Whats your longest rimfire kill?

Not much going for the .22 Magnum here, but my best hunting buddy Tim and I have been wreaking havoc on critters using my Savage 93G .22 WMR with a Bushnell 4-12X40 AO for a few years now.

I believe the longest shots go-
5. Coyote, 135 yards, chest shot, 34 grain Winchester Supreme HP
4. Blackbird, 140 yards, headshot- 33 grain Remington Accutip
3. Fox, 140 yards, broadside lungshot- 33 grain Remington Accutip
2. Coyote, 160 yards, chest shot- 40 grain Winchester JHP
1. Coyote, 180 yards, broadside lungshot, 30 grain CCI TNT in a 25 MPH wind!!!

#5,#4, and #2 were all instant kills, #3 ran 20 yards, and #1 ran 200 yards.

Admittedly the CCI 30 grain is not a coyote load, but the coyote was attacking Tim's dog at the time.
