    Accuracy is great but accuracy and good expansion is better.
    I always had good accuracy and terminal performance from Australian 40grpowerpoint.....American was different and may as well have been solid cos it didnt expand.
    The Winchester 42gr sub (Australian ) shot very well in my rifle and hit with a wallop...didn't get runners with a engine room shot.
    Couldn't find them for a while went cci sub, shot very well maybe slightly better than the win but it doesnt put down rabbits and hares the same, I dont think it expands at all.
    Just got a brick of American 42gr whinny supersonic.....I hope they have learnt off the Australians......

    Yep - a slow certain hit is better than a fast certain miss.

    I found the same when I ran out of Winchester subs and used CCI,more runners as they had a tiny hollow point compared to the Winchester which hit with a resounding thump and stopped game dead in their tracks.

    Last Australian 22 I saw was 17 years ago. It was cheap and deadly accurate.

    The 42gr super and sub was designed and made in Aus up until not long ago as far as I am aware.
    I think they must have stopped making the 40gr powerpoint when they started the 42gr as supply of that dryed up pretty early on.

    Tried them out when they first went on sale. Disappointed with accuracy out of Marlin and 10/22. If I recall correctly, it claimed Stinger-like velocity.

    The rapid fragmentation claimed may work on nuisance birds at close distances but thereafter its just another overpriced novelty round.

    Shot the supersonic 42gr American powerpoint today at 100y , accuracy wasnt terrible considering the wind.

    The old orange packet Winchester Power Point was the shit. I always thought it wounded disproportionately for 22lr. Seen a mate drop goats and a small pig with it and was pretty surprised when we skinned them.

    Yep. Those are the ones I was referring to earlier. They certainly lived up to their name.

    We have some reactive steel targets at the range but you can only shoot them from one bay normally so having this would be useful to put up on any target board and practice placement. Cheers!
    @Steelisreal PM me your home email address and I will send you a file. I cannot attach files to the PM system on the forum for some reason??

    Alternatively, if you are using a PC (not sure how on Mac), in the search field in the bottom left of your screen on the taskbar, search for "Snipping Tool". Click on the app (it comes as part of microsoft), click on "New" and this will let you draw a box around anything in screen and will create a jpeg of it. With the rabbit image showing, draw a box around it, then open MS Word and paste the image. Size it to max out an A4 page and you are pretty much on scale for a adult rabbit.
    I keep plenty of printed copies handy for practice, plus, if you laminate some, you can practice in the rain.

    That's one hell of a muck-around!

    Right-click image with mouse, or ctrl + click, or apple + click or some laptops two-finger tap... to bring up the context menu. There will be an option to "save image as" or "save file as"...
    Save it to wherever you like pictures saved (I have a folder called "Targets")...

    Once saved go to the folder and it should open with whatever program you have that does it.
    Choose print... print options, or scaling: fill page.

    Yikes! Using Windows 10 I just hit Winkey + Shift + S.
    And take it from there.

    I either paste the snip into a Word doc (handy if capturing several images) or save the original as a jpeg, or Ctrl P and save using Windows pdf creator to a pdf file.

    Previous computer had Snag-It installed which was good.

    Re the posted image I have captured it already but using a Samsung Tablet and pen. I just held the pen on the image and from the options that came up I selected "save". Only trouble is the saved image is only low res (116KB) and may not print the best. Have yet to try it.
    Likewise screen capturing the image. If it's low res to start with the screen capture has no way of improving that.
