    I know this is a small caliber but what is a good range for this caliber. Just wanted to get you guys opinion before I sink too much money into it.
    500 yards? more? less?
    I am shooting Hornady 40 grain v max and 50 grain vmax moly's

    I shoot mostly 55gr NBT out to 300yds easy. Also I use 50 BTHP's for closer jobs. 500yds is not out of the question but harder with light weight lead.gun)
