1.5 miles? That’s my guess without reading the article.

Penetrated 1/2 pine board at 440 yards. Conclusion; deadly farther than you can acurately shoot it.

The real question is: Where can you buy 22 LR ammo?

A few years ago I got in an argument here, with somebody who swore he had personally seen a .22 bounce off a leather coat.

In reality 25-30 yards 50 75 for a head shot

I’m not taking sides in that argument, but some 22.s are lightly loaded. Sub-sonic ammo is. And some only have the primer to propel it.

Take a frozen turkey to the range and wrap it in a couple of layers of denim. Your friend will be impressed at 100 yds.
I was looking for .22 this morning and you can’t find hot CCI anywhere. The “Velocitor” or 32gr JHP’s are not available. You can find some standard rounds...

I recentlyy bought five hundred rounds of the stuff. Imho still extraordinarily deadly at 25 yards.

“A few years ago I got in an argument here, with somebody who swore he had personally seen a .22 bounce off a leather coat.”

My first time shooting was with a .22 rifle. We were shooting at an old street sign which was laying on the ground, at least 100’ away. It was laying fairly flat to the ground, maybe on 30 degree angle. Each time we hit it, we heard a “Ping!” and figured out rounds deflected off of it and went elsewhere. We learned a lesson when we saw the shallow-angle holes ripped through the steel in multiple places (and no signs of any “deflections”).

Most low cost rifles will do very well out to 60 yards. The better rifles will go all the way out to 200 yards with the right ammo.

Good demonstration. Bought a Ruger 22LR rifle (it's PINK) this past January and kept clicking on ammo websites every day until I got enough ammo for personal defense. First choice of defense is a Ruger 38special with red laser attached. The 22LR is second after the handgun is out of ammo but I do have two speed loaders for the handgun if there is time to engage them.

Having weapons and ammo is fine along with the mental determination to not hesitate to fire them. Mental hesitation will get you killed. I won't have any mental hesitation if someone is trying to harm me. I have Pergo flooring and blood should clean up easily.

Now that you mention it, should be added to all "prepper" item lists, right after food, water, ammo, and a shovel.

“I was looking for .22 this morning and you can’t find hot CCI anywhere.”

I found 22LR CCI hollow points by checking ammo websites every day. Also put your name on websites to be notified when they come in. You will eventually get an email that they are there. Buy them immediately when you get that email.

Aguila Super Colibri 22 Long Rifle 20 Grain Lead Solid Point Ammunition

Muzzle Velocity: 500 feet per second
Muzzle Energy: 11 ft. lbs

Aguila Super Colibri Armmunition has no powder, relying on only the primer to propel the bullet down the bore. The result is an extremely quiet rimfire round, perfect for close-range pest control or quiet plinking.

WARNING: These rounds are powered by the rimfire primer only. They must only be fired in handguns. If fired in rifles, the bullet may remain lodged in the barrel.


I’ve fired it and still have quite a bit of the stuff, which I use when I don’t want noise. It’s quiet and doesn’t penetrate nearly as well as standard velocity or high velocity. I wouldn’t bet my life on it bouncing, and I’m more than a little skeptical on anyone having seen it if the coat was on a person, but it just might bounce, especially if fired from a rifle.

I’ve got an $80 Savage Arms bolt action with hard sights. Beginners (kids) can hit my spinner targets at fifty yards. I think they range from 2-3 inches.

I’m sure accuracy tapers off at some point...if for no other reason there’s some drop...but its pretty good at fifty.

With back-up mags, the Ruger SR22 is quite a good personal carry option. The mags can be ‘adjusted’ to hold thirteen rounds with one chambered for double action first shot. The little tool is accurate toa fault up to 50 yards, and quite deadly since you can easily make repeated head shots because it lacks measureable recoil. BTW, the SR22 can be purchased with a threaded barrel ... just sayin’

I recently bought alot of the Colibri...have been firing it at an indoor range. A friend with a silencer tried some out...you hear the hammer more than you hear the bullet. Very quiet stuff. Also, anectdotally, after shooting some boards and just firing it into the ground...I consider it very deadly up to 25 yards. Amazing really.

Thanks, Marcella, $60/100rds is not in my price range. I have thousands of rounds at the bottom of the local lake but, I’m always looking.
Hoping prices get back to sanity soon. “Cheaper than dirt” isn’t.

This is no surprise to me.

As a teenager, I used to do a lot of long range .22 shooting, and it does pack quite a whallop up to about 3500 feet. Beyond that, it looses most of its accuracy and would be useless.

I am somewhat surprised that the Ruger 10-22 carbine was able to ‘find’ the board at 440 yds. Longer barrels are your friend with .22s.

Unless you are dealing drugs and get invaded by some addicts the odds of you needing to reload are very, very slim. It is the rare occasion when a homeowner who remains calm and gets off the first shot needs to fire a second.

The first shot, assuming it connects with the target is enough to inform everyone within 100 feet that you are pissed and not taking prisoners. Consequently they tend to hightail it out of sight and range.

May I suggest adding Crimson Trace Laser sight to your Ruger. At night they make aiming a breeze and short range shooting in daylight is deadly.

Remember a .22 rifle will easily go through your walls and into your neighbors house.

Fox Creek biker leather will stop a 22lr and may stop a 9mm. It is body armor designed to protect you from hitting the ground at 35 mph.

So maybe...

They will all “go” out to 250 yards. The question is will they go where you want them to.
I used to do a lot of metallic silhouette shooting with .22 LR’s and tested every type and brand of ammo I could get my hands on for accuracy at 25 yard increments out to 250 yards.
I concluded that some ammo had huge differences in shot to shot velocity and others were highly consistent. I also concluded that what shoots incredibly well in one rifle will not do as well in another nearly identical one.

Multiple layers of high quality thick leather.

I also have riding armor with ballistic nylon inserts, but trust me - or not LOL - the Fox Creek is tougher. Go to their webssite and read the crash testimonials. It is seriously tough stuff.

With a good digital scale, you can weigh 22lr rounds to group rounds by weight and will get an amazing group accuracy. You will also notice there is a rather wide variation of weight in a bulk pack of 22lr ammo. if you want to have more consistency, weight the rounds and group them by weights. I’m not talking about weighing the noses, weigh the entire round. variations in weight are mostly due to powder/bullet differences during production.

CCI bullets tend to be more consistent in weight, so differences in those rounds is more due to powder charge differences.

Our experiences coincide with similar conclusions. I used to do a lot of bottle cap shooting years ago. Ammo was the key at making consecutive shots beyond 100 yards.
