22 Cal. Lethality & Test
Received a study forwarded me today regarding 22 Cal. Lethality Testing at 300 yards.

I saw that awhile back, and was surprised at the penetration. I recommended several shooter friends to watch it and they were surprised too. I'm curious how a more standard load would compare.

I run people off my property who hunt squirrels with a rifle. There are a lot of trees that are close to 100' tall on my land. I am not going to have problems because of people that shoot rifles in the air. If those 7 1/2 walmart loads won't reach the squirrels break down and get a box of high brass birdshot. You will also have more good meat left on each squirrel.

If I was a squirrel hunter I would use a HM2 or a nice air rifle in .177.
