Default Do you think a .22LR would go right through a body?

My mate says due to the high velocity, it would go right through a shoulder, leg, etc. As long as it didnt hit a bone.

In my opinion- any bullet can do or not do something depending on so man factors- distance, velocity, part of the body, body fat, clothing, bullet weight, etc.

I'm no expert, but anything is possible.

Survey says: "Yes". I had a pellet gun pellet in .22 caliber go right through my upper arm.

Depends on where it hits and the person, but yes it is possable.

Default Very possible

Even highly likely depending on where it hits. Hollow points have less ability for penetration compared to solids.

I can tell you by experience a 22 will go through soft flesh,
if it strikes bone typically it will not

Curious on what 22 long rifle rounds do to flesh and bone?

Check out this thread I posted almost a year ago...

As a hunter, seeing the damage a 22lr can do, I believe it can go through with no doubt.

A 22LR has muzzle velocity between1000 fps and 1200 fps approx.
Bullet weight is 36 or 40 grain .

It's not considered a powerful cartridge. To my knowledge no military on earth has issued it for combat duty .

That said, it is capable of killing humans and some poachers use it for deer too .

I was shot in the left, center abdomen when I was 17 with a 22lr hp fired from a bolt action rifle. The distance was 3-4 feet away.

The round failed to expand and passed completely through my body and exited 1.5 inches left of my spine. It then hit my t-shirt and fell to the floor.

There ya go.

If it's fired out of a long enough barrel it sure will.

At least it came out. I have a pellet stuck in my right leg that I've been wanting to get removed.

Dammit now I just watched a video of somebody shooting a decapitated deer head.

Anything for science I guess.

It was in 1988. I could take pics of the surgery scar (sternum to groin), and the bullet holes, but the bullet holes are barely visible today.

The damage consisted of a severed left ureter & the loss of 7+ feet of small intestine. Took 3 surgeries to repair the damage.

Had a .22LR hollow point to the color bone about 32 years ago, three months in the hospital.
It exploded and did a lot of damage including collapsing my lung and on a cold day I still feel it.
Moral of this story, never underestimate a .22.

Yes I knew a guy who ended his life with a 22 from a small revolver right threw his chest, the bath tub he was in and a wall.
So the answer is Yes.

IDF issued Ruger 10/22s for riot control because the hippies said that rubber bullets were too cruel. The IDF went back to rubber bullets because the .22LRs didn't convince rioters to go home (or to a hospital) so they'd eventually just bleed out.

That is the only time I am aware of a military force utilizing a 22LR rifle for anything other than training.

Thank you for the info. I recall Jeff Cooper writing about the 22 for riot control .
Here's the quote

It would seem desirable to devise a system which would make sure, first, that the riot would stop; and second, that only the leaders would feel the weight of social disapproval.

Let us consider such a means - the 22-caliber rimfire rifle. This weapon, properly sighted and equipped with a noise suppressor, may be used with surgical delicacy to neutralize mob leaders without risk to other members of the group, without noise and with scant danger of death to the subject. A low-velocity 22 bullet in the lung will not knock a man down, and in these days of modern antisepsis it will almost never kill him if he can get to a hospital in a reasonable time. It will, however, absolutely terminate his interest in leading a riot.
Now watch that video again, and pick out the two or three leaders of the riot. Ask what would happen to the rest if those leaders didn't lead.
