    I would be curious to know at what longer ranges do people around here shoot .22lr. Before anyone says anything about .22lr being junk at longer ranges, I know, but that’s what I have and it actually works great for what I’m doing with it so far. For the past few years I’ve been sighted in on 100 yards with my marlin 880SQ using a 4x scope. I shoot at these simulated 1000 yard targets, I think it’s neat because you can really see the effects of wind and weather on the groups.

    Does anyone shoot at 200+ yards with their .22lr. What do you think the max would be if you wanted to stay in the black?

    I maxed out the 22lr on prarie dog and went to 17. 200+ is just not reproducible in those winds on the wide open plains.

    Was wondering if your going to chamber the BSEV in the new 17hornady?Merry X-mas

    I picked up a BSEV in .22 mag. Have had outstanding luck with it! It wants to cluster tight groups and shoots many types of ammo well. It seems to me that a good .22, especially LR, is an essential part of a quality collection. Wether it be for good marksmanship practice, pesting, small game, varmints, short range predators, or even for beginners learning, a .22 is vital and this tack driver makes it very worthwhile.
