Default 22 Long Rifle Head Shot (WARNING: Not for the weak stomach)

Great informational video on displaying the power of standard velocity 22lr

^ Most states want something larger than a .22 caliber...including 5.56x45.
This is one reason why the .243 Winchester cartridge is so popular....light recoil and larger than a .22.

For the purpose of educating ourselves, sure.

For kids? No, at least not until they're old enough and mature enough to handle some gore outside of videogames.

This is just my opinion, and ONLY an opinion, but if the thought of killing an animal and having to clean and butcher it disturbs someone, that person shouldn't be eating meat at all.

In what way was this educational?

Oh I get it... a piece of lead traveling at 1250 feet per second will go through soft tissue - thank goodness this was proven. I can finally sleep at night knowing this now.

Impressive damage. I don't ever plan on hunting like that but it does give me more respect for the 22 lr

Couple of thoughts on the video. At what range did he shoot the deer and which of the 3 shots hit the deer, if it wasn't the first shot-no dinner? Of course it does show the damage the .22lr could do but without knowing the distance of the shot the info is somewhat suspect.

Again, how? You act as if people discussing hunting, posting videos about hunting, using carcasses or parts of carcasses to try things out, and so on haven't already been done for years.

I assume the reason behind the video was that since some states don't allow hunting with a .22, that he wanted to confirm whether or not it was actually possible to lethally shoot a dear in the head with one. If your problem is with the "gore", it's no different than people posting videos of how to skin a deer using a golfball, rope, and a pick up truck.

Hunting and hunting related things(videos, articles, photos, etc.) can be messy. If you have a problem with seeing a dead animal, don't eat meat then.

He took 3 shots from 100 yds, stated in the commentary of the video.

Glad you like it

I posted this video to show how powerful the 22 Long Rifle can be. I remember reading threads on using 22lr as self defense rounds and some members were assuming that its not powerful enough to kill a human bad guy. That's where shot placement counts like some members had mention. For myself, It's not my first choice for self defense since I also own 9mm and 45acp pistols, but I wouldn't rule the 22lr out since its the most accurate caliber I shoot with.

So yes, I do think it is an informational video so sleep well my friend.

The 22 was the preferred round for the mafia hit men. Lot of damage in a head shot.

It's a great round if you hit precisely where you need to. Not so great if you don't. This is why I would want to hedge my bets in both self defense and hunting by using the largest caliber available with a proper balance between weapon size and controlability.

Sorry I didn't clarify. Not my video. Found it on YouTube while searching through 22lr videos.

proves a point for people that DO NOT KNOW what a 22 can do...I took a friend out shooting for the first time, and he brought along an old jeans jacket and shirt...

wanted to mount them on a board and see if the 22 would even penetrate the jeans jacket.....

He WAS impressed when he saw the hole through the plywood and that it had actually gone through the board and out the backside of jacket...(no kidding)..

He has a LOT more respect for a 22 now! He ended up buying a NAA 22 Magnum and other guns since then...another one joins the ranks!!

I dont think so. I actually asked myself that but watched it again and there is a pause then edit after the shooter stops firing. He cut some footage out to make the video shorter.

For those that don't live in the country there are companies that come to the ranch and kill your cows and clean them on site then take them to a facility and cut and wrap them. I don't use them I do the work here on the ranch. I have never used anything larger than a 22 and I don't know a butcher that kills that uses anything larger than a 22.

I don't see anything gross or out of line. This is how your meat gets to safeway. They use a captivated bolt gun to stun then hang and bleed the carcass while the heart is still pumping. Things have to die for you to eat meat. We just isolate ourselves today from this reality. Every animal on a ranch is either being grown for food or is a working animal on the ranch.

Kids should know what terrible things a bullet does to tissue. I hear so often about Sheriffs asking kids why were you shooting towards the road and the answer is often it is just a 22.

In my view good post OP

I agree. I think that the guy who made the video clearly stated his intentions. In a survival situation, then a .22 could feed you something other than rabbits, birds etc. Should you go out and hunt with it? No... But if it is your only option, then it can get the job done....

Also shows that the "little gun" that some people consider a glorified air gun can kill......

A last thought, this video also shows why a .22 should be a part of your plan should you ever have to bug out.....

^^^^ I agree, my three bug out guns are a S&W 686 357/38, Ruger single six convertible .22LR/.22mag and 10/22

I have a few cop friends and have talked to some fish and game wardens. According to them poachers in this area use .22LR to do most of their killing of deer.

Also, the local butchers in this area that will go to a location to slaughter an animal all use .22LR.
