True to a point.( But NOT all media). One of the reasons I have left covering" Team sports" Media(except for 2 shows I do because both orgs./people have been loyal to me), because people( media & Ad execs) are not interested in the TRUE story anymore, only what SELLS,...besides 2A Media is more fun, and the Ratio of Jackwagons to decent folks is much lower in 2A/BOR media. It's true, Hype sells, but you have to have Substance behind it, or the buzz dies down to a wimper sooner or later...
Maybe they think it's "hi-Powered" because they saw the Tannerite video on U-Boob when the fool tried blowing up an old CPU and got a Chunk of it in his head for his trouble..

I'm just simply sharing a impressive video.
Thank you for sharing the video. That guy is full of it. To start off with a 22 LR bullet starts tumbling around 250 yards. He is saying that he is the master of physics. He should start selling his 22 LR ammo. I will gladly pay $1 per shot for 22 LR ammo that has a 500 yard range. In fact, I will up the ante. I will pay $500 for a brick of 22 LR ammo that has a 500 yard range. The bullet has to get there with less than a 10" drop and not tumbling.

Smallbore silhouette isn't even a sanctioned event. To start off with the 22LR won't knock the silhouette down. It is an event to get children interested in target shooting.

NRA smallbore is a 50 yard competition with iron sights. At 50 yards the 22 LR has a wind drift of around 2" with a 10 mph wind. NRA smallbore shooters are awesome. The top 10 or more shooters will hit a target the size of a pencil almost every time.

Virtually all sanctioned smallbore events are shot with iron sights at 50 yards.

i have to disagree. 500 yard shots with a 22 are doable for sure, but very difficult. i too have done it a few times, and honestly had more misses than hits, but it still can be done. i am pretty sure that if i were to practice it more, i could probably ge more hits than misses. i have seen more than one person make 500 yard shots with a 22.

Sorry but I strongly disagree. He is not full of it. Go look at some of his other videos, and you will see that this guy is a natural marksman. He wouldn't fake a video like that. If he tried it and couldn't hit it, he would have said so.

The guy in the YouTube video above has a channel with the handle 22plinkster. He did a video with iraqveteran8888, another popular channel that I recommend subscribing to. He was making consistent hits (as consistent as you can be with 22LR at 500 yards), he even was double tapping the plate and if I remember correctly he even triple tapped one or two times.

My offer still stands for that ammo.

I know it to be a fact he is a fake. The 22 LR starts tumbling between 250 and 300 yards from a rifle. Then he can make the same shot with a pistol. He is blowing away Olympic and factory paid marksmen if he is making 500 yard shots with a 22LR. Why hasn't a factory picked him up when no marksman in history has been able to match his feats?

That video ranks right up there with the photos of deer that had been shot with a 5.56. The 5.56 did 10x the damage of a belted magnum. Uhhmm, yah, those were true pictures too.

Not everyone wants to be a Olympic competitor, or a factory paid marksman. He is simply a enthusiast with incredible skill. But seeing as you refuse to believe it, I guess this conversation is over.
