    There's nothing practical about using a 30 cal at those distances!

    An interesting carcass found under the gong at 115x. Not far past its transition so an unfair gauge of stability, but needless to say it was flying fairly straight.

    Along with a VERY lucky shot at 1150 corrected off of 1k data. Admittedly I'd struggle to do this twice with unlimited ammo and lots of daylight left. Mine on centre, friends 22-250 just to the left.

      Hey now that's cool, some projectiles get just a little wobbly at that tarnsonic transition, othere just flip out. Yours may have been all the way through or just staring it's transit. I would try again but back up about another 200 and see waht kinda marks you get on the gong
      Given the splash patter and distortion your still carrying decent energy at that distance

        Yes they do, factory loaded 168 SMK's proved to struggle quite a bit at those distances, many coming in sideways.

          Now you got me looking at .22 damnit. I need a fun, cheap plinker.

          Any thoughts on this?

          Seems like a great price, and would be cheaper than modifying a 10/22.

            Savage gets lots of good reviews.

            I've seen a few reviews on that rifle. They all seem positive.

              The ruger american rifles are pretty good as well.

                CZ is supposed to be really nice as well.

                Personally I figure a 22 is more of a "stepping stone" or something for new shooters.

                Couldn't justify more then $300 personally.

                Gotta save up for the socom 16.......

                  .22 is fun for everyone!

                  The Savage caught my eye for the heavy threaded barrel. Since I can take my silencer apart, couldn't hurt to use it on there as well.

                  I do agree though, it's not a caliber that warrants a large investment. The cheap price is what makes them great. What are they, 10c a round? Plus, it will serve a great purpose to get the kids shooting.

                    Found my .22. asked my LGS about the Savage and they brought this to my attention.

                    Ruger American Rimfire with threaded barrel.



                    I was convinced as soon as I got my hands on it. I've read that the Savage offers a little better accuracy, but I have a feeling this will hold up better over time. Adjustable stock with a extra raised insert for optics, cold hammer forged barrel, iron sights with fiber optic front, 10/22 mags.

                    Also ordered a Simmons 4x scope off Amazon for $35.

                    Pretty excited to try it out. Also have a flashhider that will let me put my can on it, but I didn't realize how cheap .22 dedicated cans are, and much more compact. Might have one in my future.

                      If you're wanting a 22 can, get the Dead Air Mask or the SilencerCo Spectre II. Both of those are seen as the best and the Mask being the better one of the two.

                      If I had found a ruger american rimfire I would have went that route instead of the savage.

                        I've heard alot about dead air, will check them out.

                        Anybody ever use .22 subs on small game? Made a bullet stop in the garage and tried out my can on it, in the garage it seemed very quiet. When I took it outside, well, the Sonic crack is still quite loud obviously.

                          Just got home from the range trip I posted about earlier in the thread.

                          What a blast!!

                          Perfect weather today. About 55 degrees, light winds and cloudless skies.
                          My dads chili was a huge hit!
                          9 adult men and 1 12yr old buy.

                          We had everything from 22s (revolvers, semi auto pistols and my bolt rifle) up to my buddies 303 Enfield.

                          We stayed camped out on the 50yd range most of the day and then walked between the 25, 50 and 100yd ranges.

                          I must purchase a 38 special 4" revolver next!!
                          Definitely my favorite gun to shoot.

                          The 303 Enfield was fun as well.

                          Not many pics......








                          My guns are filthy!!!

                            Looks like a good time

                            I would love to start collecting some historic rifles. Nagant, mauser, enfield, and of course a garand.

                              My wife said she'll get me a Mosin for Father's Day.

                              Guess that means I can get her a gun for Mother's Day!!

                                I've been away from the forum for a long time now, but I'm looking at getting back into an E30 this year and thought I'd share one of the projects I just finished.
