    Any smaller than deer critter is fair game...the precision of the microgroove barrel works wonders with 50-grain Federal GameShoks :D

    Academy sells blackhawk bipods for around 35 bucks. They are pretty nice to way cheaper than a Harris.

    Here is my "best" and probably my favorite .22 rifle. It is a Marlin 39A Golden Mountie, 1967 vintage. Even though it is already 45 years old, if given halfway decent care, it will outlast my grandson who is only four months old now. But I also like my Ruger 10/22 a lot.

    Gotta say my Remington 513 in .22 LR
    Works great on rabbits when I have the time to get out and hunt.

    My marlin xt-17 does wonders on about anything smaller or equal to a coyote. Perfect with the 17 or 20 grain fmj/hollow points.

    My fav .22 is my Savage Arms model 64 semi auto. And since its illegal to hunt with a semi auto in Pa my favorite thing to shoot with it is a nice little red spot on a piece of paper.

    Well I still think that the ruger 10/22 is my favorite .22 but I do like my Henry lever action too
    I love going out spotlighting and shooting jackrabbits with them

    Savage 9s, squirrels. It's a good 60 to 70 years old and it shoots like a champ

    My marlin 983, 22mag . Have taken a few deer with it but when it comes to the critters its so mean with the polymer tips an will drop a coyote with ease at 100 yards.
