Which is better?
Depends on what you intend on using it for.....
.22 short. Because you can carry more ammunition.
.22 short. Because it is just as effective with shot placement.
.22 short. Because of availability.
.22 short. Because of recoil.
.22 short. Because it costs less.
.22 short. Because it is quiet.
.22 short. Because it is more versatile.
300 win mag because I'm a manly man and want as much recoil as can be even if its an overkill caliber
All you need is a .22 Short to help perpetuate what other idjuts parrot is, in turn, all you need to survive. You can always crawl into the woods and live off of whatever and defend yourself. The .22 Short isn't effective enough? Let me shoot you in the pinkie with one! Ah ha -- I WIN the argument with superior logic!!!
.300 Win Mag is my choice for small game- rabbits, squirrels, annoying geckos with a British accent. It does FAR less damage to the meat.
Of course, you do not shoot the critter. You shoot just above them.
Shockwave of the bullet passing over slams them into the ground, killing them instantly, no holes in the fur.
.......except for geckos, that do not HAVE fur.....
.300 Win mag can be loaded down, but the 22 short cannot be loaded up.
Somewhere I have some records of my attempt to create a 100gr plinker load.
I feel better with a larger cartridge. The paper targets shake with fear.
Is this some kind of trick question? Which is better pizza or a Maserati? Depends on if you are starving to death.........
22 Short vs 300 Win Mag depends of you intend to hunt anything over 20LBS
Both of these cartridges are great, and both fulfill their intended purposes perfectly. BUT.....if I ever got into a GUN BATTLE, I'd want to have my .22short with me.
Depends what you are starving for
.22 short won't kill a bear.........unless maybe you had already nailed its paws to a tree and soaked it in gasoline...mmmmmmm
What goes faster and handles better a 1950 volkswagon or a brand new Corvette. A 22 short that is ineffective on about any thing bigger than a rabbit at close range, compared to a 300 win mag which is a fast flat shooting step up from a 30-06 desighned for long range hunting on all big game in north America.
You sure see it all in the forums sometimes.
For all that had this sail over your head- this is a tongue in cheek thread, poking fun at some of the questions that are asked here.
So let me ask the questions in a different manner-
(1) looking for a first car for my 17 yr old grandson. Should I get him a 1970 VW Beetle, or a new Corvette?
(2) Looking for a first rifle for my 6 yr old grandson. Which would be better- something in .300 Win mag, or .22 Short?
AND the point is- the answer to all of those "best" questions is:
.....that all depends.
Well I got suckered in on that one beat me slap me and make me write bad checks.
So there will be no bear ballistic testing?
I can carry a revolver (NAA) loaded with 22short the change pocket of my jeans and no one will know. If I carry a .300 wm in my pants I will get a lot of strange looks from people. Of course, it might be a good way to meet women.
Of COURSE there will be!
We just have to get the bears loaded into the catapult first.....
Who's been sleeping in your bed? My god, a nightmare!!!!
I'll get you my pretty, and your little honey pot too!
mid-range trajectory of a bear?
C3shooter, now that you have us going on hi-speed furballs... N. Alberta on the oil rigs in bitterly cold weather, rabbits would seek shelter in the stacked drill pipes. Don't know how they died, but they had to be removed. Check to make sure the pipe cap will thread ok, toss in a fraction of a primed & lit stick of Forcite 60% and screw that cap on!
Not sure of the muzzle velocity, but hey Orangello... here's how a rabbit could kill a bear!
