I am wondering what types of game are to be shot with a .22. Is it stupid to shot deer with them? My father uses a 30-30 or 30 ot 6 (however you pronounce it) for deer. What are the best animals for the .22? I also have a .22 pellet gun by benjamin sheridan. Is there a big difference between the game you can hunt with a .22 bullet powered and the game you can hunt with the .22 pellet powered?
