    If they're serious, that means changing something fundamental in the 22's makeup, a lighter pointier pill, or faster powder.

    CCI subs work just fine on plouthers and bunnies out around 130 yds. Kill well and surprisingly hold good precision

    A few years back (like more than 30!) my brother and I were sitting in the haybarn on top of the hill shooting at a 44 gallon steel drum down on the flats. Once we worked out the holdover on the iron sighted single shot 22 we were hitting it every time. It was quite cool...aim...bang...wait...wait...."tink!". I'll have a look on the mapping program to work out the distance, but at a guess around 150m?

    Wonder what makes them "long range". I had visions of them having CETME-like projectiles but probably the truth is more leaden and pedestrian.

    It says For targets 100 yards and beyond on the box, so I guess anything 100 yards or more. Isn't MPBR for 22lr usually considered to be about 90m?
