What are you shooting in Rimfire?

I have a gaggle of 22 caliper rifles. Who doesn’t?

Within the last year I’ve become attached to the 17HMR. My first was just a Ruger American. A very nice rifle for the money. My second was a Browning T-Bolt. I returned the Ruger to stock and used the rimfire scope on the Browning. Actually the Ruger is fun to shoot with open sights. I can’t bring myself to mount a bipod on the Browning so I’ll shoot it off a bag.

I was actually surprised at the chart posted below.

That chart is cool. But I gotta say I'm not going to be shooting any of them at 200 yards. Shoot I'm not sure I would be shooting it at 100. If I have to go to that distance then I am going to bring a bigger hitter.

I still own a .22 Just never use it. Basically sits there for a SHTF scenario and future grandchildren.

I shoot .22's more than any other gun.
I have lots of .22's both rifle and pistol.
Bolt action , lever action , pump action , semi auto , single shot.
Some are over 100 years old and some are modern.
All are fun to shoot and are used all the time.
Every time I go shooting I have at least one 22 with me.

I will say this. I was really interested in 22 at one time. Now that I reload I can shoot .223 almost as cheap and can crank them out pretty fast on my progressive so I usually go with that.

I understand but surprised how much better than a 22 mag. 100 yards is about right for me, maybe a little further. Wind is the enemy.
