    I only heard of it today. Rock Island is producing the handgun, looked like a 45 from what I could tell. Armscor is making ammo. A 9mm necked down to a 22.

    According to the guy in the video it is accurate out to, "2000 yards" if I heard him right.

    What I was thinking also. I think he got a little excited in his ignorance.

    Yeah, no way a .22 is going to be accurate that far. Interesting idea though.

    On a side note; has Gello seen your profile pic yet?

    Of course a .22 will shoot 2000 yards. Fire it straight down from an aircraft at 6000 ft. It will hit the ground almost every time.

    Of course, you just witnessed a future reporter for CNN. His number probably came from the reported MV of 2000 fps.

    Yeah. looks very cool. By the way, how many of you have heard of a .256 Winchester Magnum? That is a .357 Mag necked to .25 cal. How about a Johnson .22 Spitfire? .30 carbine necked to .22 cal.

    The mag is from 1960, the Spitfire (at 3000 fps from a modified M1 Carbine) from 1963. Both are known mainly to cartridge collectors. Before I get all quivery, I;m going to wait and see what they are still shooting in 20 years. Now I got to go look for some .44 Automag ammo, and some 10mm Dornaus & Dixon- and if you see some Gyrojet ammo for a good price, let me know.

    :p:D:)

    What the Hell was that all about. It looked like a wedding for the leader of the Medien Drug Cartel. As posted there is no way it is going to be accurate at 2,000 yds.

    C3 I have owned or shot most of those rounds years ago. Colt chambered 3 Pythons for the souped up 25-20 .256 Mag. I would have owned one had Colt produced them. I have my old 5 screw dual cylinder Mdl. 53 .22 Remington Jet. which is now past 50 years old. I have shot 1,000s of rounds thru this gun and continue to use it to this day. As you know it is a .357 Mag. necked down to a .222 bullet. The Jet will run with any of these new super .22 pistol rounds. The Jet suffered from people who knew nothing about handloading. I notice the same thing happening with the 5.7 of today.:)
