    Impressive.......that is why I find it odd that no one uses a .22 on the Walking Dead to dispatch a walker - LOL

    They only have 27 ft/lb at 50 yds..might make it thru stiff cardboard. HaHa.
    Itís just so much fun! You will enjoy.

    You really don't need a 300 win mag to shoot a squirrel, but to each their own.

    Speaking of squirrels I still have that Grey carcass for to test the ballistics of your new air rifle. I wanted to see how it penetrates at the 100yd.

    I'll take out these CBee's at the same time.

    4 ft lbs of energy at the muzzle with the .177 airgun at 495fps and it kills rabbits no problem with a shot to the head.

    The high powered one is a 22 at 850fps, I actually ran them over the chronograph , that is about 29 ft lbs of energy.

    The energy of a 22LR high velocity at 100 yards, based on CCI is still 80 ft lbs, if I can kill rabbits with a .177 airgun pellet at the muzzle with a single shot there is nothing wrong with a 22LR at 100 yards.

    Apparently the ideal range to sight in a 22LR is at 75 yards, just a bit of a drop at 100 and just high out to that range, but we used to sight in and kill groundhogs at 100 yards no problem.

    I know that this .177 airgun killed squirrels in the big maple trees when I was a kid, made a nice snack with just the sound of the spring but the wind really gets to those pellets.

    Used to tip over many groundhogs with 22lr at 100yds.
    Still use 22lr for small game/pest control, as I'm not much of a shotgunner. No problems here killing them as well

    Lots of great videos on you tube. Problem with high velocity is if it is just just over 1125 fps and if your 1260 fps at the muzzle.. it is not long before the sonic wave passes the projectile disrupting its flight pattern. Standard velocity for accuracy hands down.

    For 100 yards I picked up the cci velocitor @ 1450 fps muzzle...1180fps at 100 yards. It seems tho that your gonna get flyers and that is the ethical if you dont want to miss it dilemma with 22 s. One video had a 5 llb chuck roast wrapped 4 times in denims pants and it was straight through and a wicked size wound channel.

    Yep, 100 yards on a groundhog is not a problem, but they do make it back to the hole, at least I don't have to collect them and dump them down the hole, they do it on their own.

    I don’t own a 300 win mag but sure let’s pop dirt pigs with a 22 and let them crawl down the hole to die a horrible death eh?

    I can’t even begin to guess how many ground hogs I’ve taken with a 22. If you hit them right they don’t move even an inch.

    I also can tell you that many 22’s I’ve seen at the range that can’t even hold close to MOA. So far I can count them on one hand that can. 3 to 5 MOA is typical.

    So taking a squirrel at 100 yards you are more apt to take a leg off or a nose.

    50 yards is quite a different story.
