I used them whenever noise is an issue. They're not very powerful, but good enough for target practice.

My father uses them a LOT, and they are more powerfull than you think!!!!

I bought him a couple "hundred packs" for his birthday. Dad's been shooting pest around the farm with them for years!! I'd say he shoots 2 to 300 of them in a years time. Of course, he has one rifle sighted for them, and he has no problem killing unwanted pest around the house with one shot.

We used to use them to kill rats in the feed bins in the barns. They're nice cause they have enough OOMPH to hammer a rat, but won't go through the walls of the bins and through the planks on the walls of the barn. Good load for pigeons, also. Hit a pigeon in the breast and the bullet stays in the bird and doesn't go through the roof![8D]

I like those for every thing everyone brought up here. Problem is, my old springfield 22 bolt action rifle just broke, now i can't find a rifle to shoot them from..

Does anyone know of any rifles that will shoot these that are still available somewhere?

My birthday present from my father in law was his model 25 marlin pump 22 "caps only" It's a pump action. It shoots pretty good. Would definately kill what it hit at close range. I wouldn't want to get hit by one! Started my 7 year old on that gun. She does pretty good!

Yup, shoot them in my bolt action .22's. Takes care of pests with very little noise.
