Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default 22 Ballistics Hyper, Standard Or Subsonic Rounds Which One?

Been stocking up on .22 LR ammo. I don't want to get caught short if there is another drought like happened under obongo. I had ammo, but didn't want to shoot it. Now, I'm shooting that up and replacing it 2:1. Since Cabela's opened a store in Albuquerque, I can usually get a brick on sale for $25 while other places are still either sold out, or trying to sell a brick for $35-$40.

Funny thing is, I never gave the ballistics a whole lot of thought except to track down the ballistic info on CCI Mini Mags and CCI Blazer, only to discover their ballistics were identical, according to their website at the time.

Understanding 22 Ballistics (22 Long rifle 5.6x15mmR) whether you shoot hyper velocity, subsonic or standard 22 ammunition (around 1250fps) is essential if you want to hit small targets beyond 100 yards.


Why Understanding 22 Ballistics is Important

The 22 LR is ideal for teaching novice or beginner firearm owners the basics of exterior ballistics and how to consistently hit targets beyond their usual shooting distance.

Ammunition is inexpensive so you can practice all day at the gun range. However, before you start buying 22 ammo based only on velocity believing highest velocity is the key to better long range ballistics performance from the 22, read the following.

Good info. I wonder how a .22 Magnum would compare?

With pistol-length barrels, you're wasting your money with .22mag. 22lr and .22mag perform almost identically out of a 6" or shorter barrel. 16" or longer is where the .22mag starts to shine. I've taken hawg with a .22mag.

A whole lot of poached deer could attest to the power of the .22 magnum.

Years ago I bought 250,000 Federal Red Box .22. They work fine in both my H&K .22 conversion kit for the G3K & the CMMG dedicated upper for the M-16. They are quiet in both my Ruger 77/22 & Mk II integrally suppressed guns. When I run them thru my Spectre II on full auto they aint as quiet as I hoped, but are fine while on semi auto.

My old eyes had a bit of trouble seeing the chart but what I read was very interesting. Yup my Marlin .22 mag bolt micro grove at a 100 yds. is dead on accurate.

Yes, they do. My former police officer neighbor is proof positive.

Hell, that goes without saying. .22s are for poaching. .44s and .45s are for serious interpersonal discourse.
