    Main reason is frangible bullets at high velocities do not pass through animals, and ricocheting into the neighbors properties. Even a solid 22LR sub has issues (fixed with frangible 22 sub ammo).
    It's just a constraint of where I do most of my shooting, otherwise the other calibers would all make perfect sense.

    @viper Good spotting on the CZ. Got hold of them today, and talked to the owner who they were selling it on-behalf-of.
    It's making it's way up the country next week

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions and keeping an eye out for what was out there.
