I've gotten a few swamp rabbits with an old Savage bolt action, but mostly my .22's are just for squirrel.

I have seen a quit few deer killed with a .22lr within about 25-30 yds or so and I have killed more meat hogs with a .22 than you can haul in a dump truck.

Hereford bull, actually took two shots, both at point blank range. The first bullet never made it through the skull, but the second one did!

He was lame, broken front leg, so he had to be put down.
