I shot over a mile and half with my 10/22. Well, that's what it said on the box of ammo I had.

Maybe 150 yards max. At this point, the bullets where just lobbing.
Link Posted: 1/11/2006 3:23:06 PM EDT
22lr. can be accurate to 50/75 yds. Some have got 100yd. thing going on. Previous poster describing 'lobbing' was about on. 10/22 is a disadvantage from the get, despite the occational hard core investor getting a good target. Flame away, you know whats up.

Well, I know that I could hit 1" stickers on rocks consistantly at 125 yards with my savage.

I have spent over 800 bucks on one of my 10/22's. It will punch one hole groups at 30 yards. Plinking spent shotshells at 80 yards is no problem.

I shoot my 10/22 at 50 to 75 yrds usually. 75rds and pop cans are no problem. I'll get some groups on paper at 100 sometime just to see.

IMHO, go with .17m2 or .17hmr for anything beyond 80 yards. When I get my .17HMR I plan on shooting at around 150yrds.

It is good for up to red fox. I'm sure the .22 has killed many other animals and some may use it regularly on coyote but I think it is underpowered. Personally, anything bigger than a squirrel I use my .17hmr on.

As for your original question. 100 yard shots at targets should be no problem. For example, Federal bulk pack .22 ammo claims the ballistics to be a 3 inch drop at 100 yards.

I killed alot of crap at 100 yards with a 22. A 22 is fine for coyotes. Do not expect them to just fall over unless you hit brain or spine.

There's a manhole sized GONG at the 200 yard mark at one of the ranges I go to. You can easily ring it several times once you find the hold over sweet spot. 2-3 feet or so!

I rang it one time out of 7 with my 1911 using 5 feet of holdover.

We were shooting a washing machine (its the target stand. lol) at 250-300 yards with the stock 10/22 carbine and a HK94 (9mm). It had noticeable flight time but you could hear it hit the washer <lol> Never did go down range to see if the .22s were actually putting holes in the thing (doubtful).

I shoot 12"x12" cardboard pieces at 200 yards and score hits 20 out of 25 times. I am using Velocitors in one gun and the Aguila 60 grn. out of my other with a 1:9 barrel. I like them for jackrabbits.

I have no problems at 100 yards with my Volquartsen barrel and Leupold scope. I can keep a can dancing (as long as my extractor behaves) or pick off shotgun shells.

Off of a rest, of course...

i know my granddad claims that when he was a kid about my age ( around 20 or so) he had 7 22 shells, went hunting and killed 6 deer, i thought he was full of shit just like you all do, but this man as long as i knew him never told a lie in his life. now im not sure how far they were or where he hit them ( im guessing the head at close range) so always know you can kill just about anyting if you hit it in the right spot.

...did a guy in Laos once at 1000yds...in high winds...only 2 or 3 other guys in the world could've made that shot...it's the only thing that I was ever good at...

Seriously...or not...we used to shoot a 24 inch gong on the 200yd line. 4-6 ft of holdover. Bang................plink. Got a bit boring after a while. A guy I shot with (fmr mil) compared it to the M79 Blooper. Without the large payoff at the end.

Seen someone kill a goose at around 225 yards with a .17

Have killed birds at over 100 yards with a .22

By some miracle, I was able to consistently hit 8oz(?) Gatorade bottles at what I thought was 100 yards using a cheap Tasco .22 scope and my stock 10/22 Deluxe. I was using a Ramline clamp-on bipod and firing from prone. I was able to hit a Gatorade bottle cap repeatedly, I had to use the glint of light to see it. I think the scope was 4X-10X. Later, I measured the distance with a tape and discovered it was actually 130 yards. It took forever because I had to walk to the target between strings during the zeroing process, but I had it zeroed at 50 yards already.

I can hit dirt clods with my Taurus 62 at 150 yards.

One other totally lucky shot was on a dare while I was shooting with friends. I hit a blackbird at 50 yards with my Ruger P-85 9mm. I aimed about a foot high and I winged the bird. It squawked and jump into the air and fell to the ground dead.

When I first started shooting, I shot the primer out of a spent shotgun hull at 50 feet. The sights weren't zeroed at all, I was guessing where the bullet would go.
