Yes I've done the .223 blue dot loads. I think I am just looking for a new itch to scratch.

It would be perfect for this.

I would intend to plink with this rifle as well as having it close to the back patio for everything from crows to unwiley coyotes.





Vudoo 22LR for me,if only because I've shot or got everything else cited.

Hint.............

I've become a big fan of the 17 Hornet with 20 grain V-MAX bullets.

Sorry to say, yet you may need to ask What ammo are you able to find these days? I am a fan of the following these days 223 for ammo availability. 221 fireball due it is a great cartridge for intended purpose & I reload. 22 Hornet as it may do well for intended purpose. Good luck finding ammo or components for much of anything in recent times.

If you were only plinking a .22LR would make a lot of sense. It will also do for small game, like rabbits an such, though 125 yards is further away than I would plan to shoot them, because you really don't have anything in reserve and at that range wind and trajectory are against you. As a rabbit rifle out to 90 -100 yards though they are the business. On bigger stuff, like foxes, I've found that you really need to hit the butt of the ear to have reliable kills, so that is the limiting factor in terms of range. Shooting thousands of rounds at rocks though, this would be the calibre to choose.

A Hornet fills the bill for animals up to 40 lbs very handsomely, out to well past 125 yards if required. I've dropped pigs with it too, with a well-placed shot. They use very little propellant and you have the advantage of being able to choose a fair range of projectiles. Mine and others I've used have been very accurate and they are easy to shoot. I like this calibre.

The .22 Mag has never particularly appealed to me, mainly because a Hornet can do everything the .22 Mag can do and more. The ones I've tried have been less than impressive in accuracy too. I guess if you don't handload though, the ammo is cheaper.

It is amazing any of you that answered “C” ever finished 3rd grade. And of course Stick never even went to school.

The answer is easily “B” the Hornet

Keep it up you meth headed clown. It’s 2:00 AM in Alaska and you are on a computer making funny stories with your clueless swamp garbage and potty mouth tryin to figure out how to spell cuss words.

Try going to school and staying away from meth and your spelling will improve and your comprehension skills will develop to where you will have more than a 4 word vocabulary with all your derogatory words enunciated by years of abuse and avoiding any sort of actual mind development.

I have always been skeptical of the philosophy of some that say “if you put enough monkeys in a room with enough keyboards, one will write a paragraph” but it is certain that you have proved me wrong.

As painful as it is to agree with Blackheart.....
