Thread: Why is .22LR still being hoarded???

  1. #21
    Every household that has guns, usually has one or more .22LR guns. It is the single most used ammo in the world today.

    A 22lr will drop 3000 inches at 1000 yards be traveling at 400fps and carry 16ft-lbs of energy. A 55gr 223 will drop around 500 inches be traveling 1000fps and carry 100ft-lbs of energy.

    I don't see those as the same "kill". A 223 has more velocity and energy at 750 yards as a 22lr has at the muzzle.

    A 1000yrd shot with a 22 isn't impressive. It would be amazing. Do you have YouTube links to these shots?

    Not in the gold market. I am in the junk silver market, however. Gold is for retirement nest eggs, silver is for barter/trade when a dollar is worthless.

    I have 2 pistols and a 10/22. Don't consider either for defense, but for practicing basic marksmanship or taking out small game without too much damage you can't beat it.

    The increase in ammo is really starting to bum me out. I compensate by searching out deals and steals.

    I am one of those guys you hear about from a breathless metro sexual news reporter on is all flushed and pale on camera when he reports that" the guy had many thousands of rounds of ammunition IN HIS HOUSE!!!! Oh my GOD!!!! How can this be possible in a civilized society."

    Oh crap is the NSA listening?
    Gotta go.
    Tolerance of the intolerant leads to the destruction of tolerance. “You are also reminded that any inappropriate remarks or jokes concerning security may result in your arrest,” in the land of the free.
