Weve established the fact that if u shoot it in the right place it's bang flop. Ive trapped a lot of coyotes, and even at point blank a 22 isn't enough when shooting in the heart/lungs of course they will die but it may take 30 seconds or even a minute . U know how far a yote can run in just 10 seconds?

I have killed deer with 22 LR before, but I don't hunt deer with them. Just because a small gun will kill something doesn't mean it is the best to use. I have leaned the old saying is very true, All Ways Use Enough Gun. You want a good clean fast kill, you do not want the target to suffer.

Default Update:..

Purchased a Ruger American In 22 MAG with threaded barrel. Having trouble getting my FFL dealer to get an FFL copy to Whittaker so they can ship it. Not sure what the holdup is and may have to do it myself (pick up FFL copy and fax it on my fax machine).
A friend has several boxes of Federal 22 Mag ammo with the 50 gr bullets. All that have tried them said "poor accuracy" but I won't need MOA accuracy for 60 yard heart/lung shots. My suppressor is said to be ok w/ 22 mag Rimfire in a rifle barrel so I'm going to try it. Weeds and brush is starting to leaf out so time for clearer shots in the woods is dwindling!

Try the hornady 30 gr vmax in the 22 magnum. Fox and yotes inside of 50 to 75 yards don't stand a chance. Right behind the shoulder.

Ruger American (#8335) is finally in my hands. Anxious to clean factory lube off/out of the bore, screw on the can and get it scoped and ready for coyote elimination! This short run model has a threaded 'heavy' barrel and green stock. Pics soon.

If you had to chase it down to shoot it again then it was not DRT. An adequate caliber to begin with is more humane and sportsmanlike.

If you put one of these in your 10/22 like I did it will help you make more consistent head shots.

I also just put a Bushnell Rimfire scope with 3-12X40mm zoom. It sits very low with my old Weaver rings, but does not touch the barrel. It is crystal clear and comes with 3 turrets. One for 22 lr and another for 22 wrm. I put it on my S/S 10/22.

PS: This is a very good price:

ten fo' on that one Quack.

.22 LR will get it done on a small animal
such as yote..

A Stinger or Yellow Jacket will get it done inside 100.
125 if you can shoot!

I have taken a couple with my .22 mag. Were shot on seperate occasions, both behind the shoulder with 40 grain hollow points. 50-60 yard shots, called in. Both did a spin and ran. Found one immediately, within sight of where shot. The other one was shot just before dark and wasn't found til the following day. Went about 100 yards.

The .22 mag and HMR are marginal. I believe the 40 grain loads are best. I got a pass thru on one of the two I shot. I also have a .17 WSM. For a rimfire, should be better yet, but haven't had a shot opportunity.
