Default .22 lr range

I know the warning label on a box of .22 lr ammo says dangerous for over a mile. But what is the actual affective kill shot range of a .22 lr.

I am thanking of setting up a 10/22 as a sniper system. Just incase I run out of ammo in my bigger guns. Plus I can stock up on more .22 ammo.

Any advice on what would be the best threaded barrel to go with for maximum accuracy and range would be grate also.

I would say max effective range is just over 100 yards. After that bullet drop is killer.

Still a fantastic survival gun. How else can you carry 1000 rounds in your pants pockets?

I don't know that it's a practical 'sniper' round. As it's a lot easier to find a 100-200 yard range than a 600-1,000 yard range, some practice long range with a 22lr at reduced distances with reduced size targets. Additionally, the .22lr gets tossed around by wind like crazy. If you can hit the x with a .22lr at 100 yards on a breezy day regularly, hitting a bull at 400 with a 5.56 or at 600 with a 308 should be a piece of cake.

You might want to consider .22 MAG or .17 HMR instead.
