- Q & A
The .22LR is a nice option for varmint and pest control; if you’re being plagued by foxes, gophers, other small pests, a well-placed shot will handle the problem neatly. Experienced shooters have used their .22LR-chambered rifles to take down larger game, with coyotes being among the popular scavengers to take down. In one incredibly unique situation in the early part of the 20th century, an Inuit woman took down a massive grizzly bear with her .22 thanks to an amazing shot through its eye. Once she could get closer she followed up with several more head shots. Since the .22LR is a small round and one that produces not much energy it’s wise to remember its most effective killing range and good to hone your accuracy to ensure a clean kill.
Another factor of hunting with your .22LR is what kind of ammunition you use. Although it’s true that expanding rounds in this caliber don’t expand to the extent larger calibers do, they still expand, and with that expansion comes deceleration, which protects against over-penetration. It’s always wisest to use expanding rounds when hunting. These rounds are made by Remington, a company with 200 years in the industry and plenty of experience creating high quality ammunition. Today they’re the oldest and largest constantly operating firearms and ammunition manufacturer in the country.
These particular .22LR weigh in at 36 grain, making them both lightweight and within the standard weight range for the cartridge. Being light both enables them to move at greater speeds while preserving the lesser recoil shooters tend to enjoy with their .22LR-chambered firearms. These are Hollow Point (HP) rounds and expand somewhat on impact while also slowing down. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1280 feet per second and muzzle energy of 131 foot-pounds. This ammunition can be used for pest control, target practice, and plinking. There are 500 rounds in this box of ammunition which is manufactured by Remington at their factory in Lonoke, Arkansas. Your .22LR is hungry, so feed it!
