With my Phoenix HP22, I would expect my target to be within 21 feet, preferably less.

It took me 5 shots I would like to go further I would really like to go out to 300 yards this is so hard to find safe place to do this in arizona

100 yards is easy for a 22. There is already a thread on this. Search it.

God didnt make all men equal colonel Sam Colt did

Shooting over 500 yards is easy with my PPK/s in .22lr.

Oh, did you mean that I was to hit something on purpose? Then the furthest distance I have any accuracy with my PPK/s is approx 100 yards.

I have a marlin 880ss with a scope and it's sighted in at 100 yards. I dont have a problem hitting a golf ball.

1.5 miles I believe.

Accurately, 150 yards is my limit for anything smaller than 4-6". I can hit a 2" target very reliably at 100 yards but past that accuracy seems to drop exponentially, maybe it's the wind affecting a very light and slowing bullet?

At about 100 yards, the bullets from most .22 LR rifles are dropping from supersonic to subsonic. As this happens the shock wave induces a wobble to the bullet, and accuracy goes to hell.

With the right rifle and ammo, I can get sub 1 inch groups at 100 yards. At 300 I could hit an oil drum. Yes, will drive a bullet 1 to 1.5 miles- but with the accuracy of a thrown chair.

What kind of chair should I get?
What kind of chair is best for throwing at oil drums at 300 yards?
