.22LR is a popular round for many reasons from its soft report to its minimal recoil – and, of course, it’s just plain fun. It was designed in 1887 by the J. Stevens Arms and Tool Company, and if you really want to trace its roots all the way back they technically began with the Flobert BB cap back in 1845. That said, its parent case is actually the .22 Long, and its bullet comes courtesy of the .22 Extra Long. While many new shooters pick up a .22LR as their first firearm, it’s great for everyone and useful for a variety of things from taking down squirrels and coyotes to plinking away at a row of empty soda cans. Then there’s the fun of seeing just what the .22LR can penetrate, and that’s where YouTuber 22plinkster comes in.

In his latest video 22plinkster lined up a row of light bulbs to find out just how many a .22LR round could penetrate. Of course it’s possible the bullet veered off at a certain point, but even so it’s a fun video, because who doesn’t like playing with their .22LR?

What’s the craziest thing you’ve shot with your .22LR?
