Default .22 Mag

What's the biggest thing you've 1 shot killed with a .22 mag.

For me it was a half full spray paint can!!!

How about a cow \ pig for slaughter?

A coyote at 125 yards w/ a 40gr Maxi mag. Right through the ear. Rifles make the difference also. Mine is an absolute tack driver. An older Browning A-bolt Gold Medallion w/ a Bushnell Trophy 3-9x42mm that has the old amber glow optics for low light.

Coyote,
But it has to be a good shot or they run off! Probably kill them but sometime later. If I shoot an animal I want them to die ASAP. So I use larger calibers to Coyote hunt.

Can you share a little more detail of that hunt there with a .22 Mag? I think the rifles are great. Don't get the credit they deserve. A long-barreled pistol for hunting small and medium game I could see also.

Any pictures of that bacon on the hoof?

A 600 LB steer is the biggest thing I have killed with a 22 wmr. No, it's not a big game hunting cartridge. It's not ethical to run a deer into chute and shoot it 6 feet away. The 22 wmr is the favorite rifle of the inuit indians in alaska. They kill with the first shot 75% of the time. they are nomadic so I doubt they are moose hunters.

No pictures, it was over thirty years ago. We were spotlighting for pigs rooting in hay fields. My brother was working the light, I shot a pig.

Winchester Model 94-22M.

Nice. Yes Sir, that little .22 Mag is something. Good shot though. And you really are bringing back some memories -- I forgot all about that little Model 94 - 22M.

Man you got me hankering for one in a sentence. Always wanted one of their .357's in laminated wood too. "WinTuff" I think was the marketing name. They were sharp. Wasn't to be.
