I was out at mountain springs and took my target 10/22 out, and measured out 300 yards then about 20 ft further I put a 1 foot square piece of pine wood I had left over from building my shelves upright, so thats 300 yards plus 20 ft so like 305 yards? Anyways I sighted my scope on rocks parralel to the wood which I maxed out my elevation and adjusted for windage there was about 12 mph head wind going slightly to my right. then with 10 rounds I aimed to about what I was with rock about 2 ft over the wood and wam one after another I got 7 shots into the wood! some didnt penetrate all the way but at 300 yards plus with a 22lr thats pushing it and I was using shoddy ferderal bulk ammo so for all you all here is a piccy ! I had a witness and the measuring tape to do it so it is accurate and no the shots are not close but hell 1x1ft woot.

That sounds like fun. I love shooting my 45s at 100yds offhand. Rarely hit anything though.

Good job. That is kind of things I do a lot, ballistics testing, penetration testing, etc. But, I never tried a rimfire at that distance. I am gong to try with 17 HMR one of these days though .

not sure on penetreation if your using wood or just paper but hitting it should be easier than this cuz it shoots flatter but, the windage might be an issue hehe.

Neat-o! Looks like some keyholing on a few of the rounds, interesting.

Putting that many rounds on a 1' x 1' square at 300+ I have to say well done, especially with a wind.

I've never really thought to try that far with a .22, but my Marlin 39A (24 inch barrel) might make that reach..

I say go for it! it was a challenge but quite cool, I saved the bullets that were still lodged in the wood for luck heh. and it was the redish box that they have. of federal bulk. I wish I was using the cci mini mags. mountain springs is 13 miles west of occitilio.

I did this as a challenge to a friend cuz I was telling him my target 10/22 was really accurate and he was like ehh and I said I will tell you what I will shoot it at 300yrds he said ok deal you do that and if your rounds make it I wil buy a 10/22 so now he lost heh.

Nice job indeed! And here I thought 100 yards was stretching it with .22LR - you've certainly set the bar a couple of notches higher.

I'd say the 22 is plenty lethal. Great for BOB.

Interesting, I always figured that the round would lose velocity over that distance and drift...but your post proves otherwise...definitely going to test this out soon...

BTW I go shooting in ocotillo whenever I'm in SD, but I've never even heard of Mountain Springs and would like to shoot at these distances can you PM me a location or directions?

So he buys himself a 10/22 because he lost? He definitely didn't the losing end of that deal.

You said that was 7 of 10 shots at 300 yards?! Dang, is your 10/22 upgraded? I've done alot of practice long range shooting with the 10/22 and on a perfect day, I get 14" group at 200 yards with the same ammo your shooting, benched with lots of sandbags. My 10/22 is completely stock. With 7 shots hitting out of 10, that means that your group at 300 yard is about the same as my grouping at 200 yards.

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a105/mif_slim/100_0975-1.jpg

On a 5-10 mph windy day at 300 yards my bullet impacts 42" windage from target, meaning that you have to adjust windage MOA at 13.6 and elevation drops 123.4" with adjustments of 40 MOA elevation.

Anyways, good shooting.

Anyways, heres a video of me shooting 250 yards off hand with the 10/22.

I got the target model with the hammer forged bull barrel with the cool spirals going down it..lol but I have it on a harris bipod and a simmons 22mag scope. I did have a slight downward angle due to being elvated on my car so it gives a slight advantage to flat shooting. the ironic partt I was going after a 2nd target after that one I posted gun jammed and I fixed it and decided to fire it not aiming and hit one of the targets I had next to it..luckiest shot ?

That's what I love about going blasting out doors. You set up your own scenarios, and just test the laws of physics and your items to see what they can do. Nice job, and thanks for sharing this with us.

I wonder if the subsonics would do better at long range, just because there isn't a supersonic to subsonic transition to destabilize the rounds?

At 100+ yards, it's pretty much shooting like a mortar. My scope won't give me enough elevation to go much past that unless you use 'kentucky' elevation :D

If you wan tto mess around, try Aguila SSS at 100 to 150 yards- you can see them in flight in the scope!
