Rounds gain velocity the farther they travel. Always check the effective range of yo ur weapon and song with the performance of the rounds being used

The rifle went thru at a farther distance because the bullet had enough time to reach terminal velocity.

True story, my grandfather fled to Nicaragua after killing a police sergeant proceeding an argument at a bar in Honduras. He pulled a .22 out of his pocket and placed it on his forehead. He eventually got caught, went to jail and all, but he was around to tell me the story.

I'm not shocked. My friend's dad killed a black bear with a 10/22... it wasn't the plan, but it happened. He was out checking fences and turned around to see a bear was following very close, emptied 10 into its face region, and hi-tailed to the truck. came back the next day and sure enough, dead bear on the ground...

Dont stop at one with a .22lr just do a mag dump to be safe and less recoil so maybe land more shots on target? Based on your experience.

I'd use the 40 grain high velocity more penetration with the heavier bullets lite weight hollow points are good for rabbits and squirrels I have shot through a two by four and 3/4 plywood with 40 grain 22 in a four inch barrel Ruger bearcat.

People who try to kill themselves with a .22 typical dont die until around 2 weeks after they shot themselves. Something about it taking that long for the inflammation to cause the brain swelling to push the spinal column out the base of the skull.

I watched this video because when I was 12 years old I was shot in my right eye with a Ruger 10/22 with Remington Thunderbolt ammo and it ricocheted and lodged in my jaw so seeing this is really interesting

My best friends grandpa got too old to carry a bigger rifle, so he'd use a silenced .22 and as long as he shot the deer in the eye/head/ear it went down everytime.

Why people think a .22 couldn't kill you or enter your skull is beyond me... people think you can just get lit up by a .22 and keep trucking. Let me tell you as someone who has been shot with a .22 it does damage and if I shot you with one you'd stop doing what I wanted you to stop. Is it as good as 9mm or .45? No. But stop acting like its worthless. Lol

What is it with Americans and gun control, people make it sound like if guns are taken out of most peoples Hans people will stop dying. In my country it is that hard to own a gun but people still get shot. Mostly by people that are connected to some security outfits or just government. Okay, maybe gun control can be a good thing in that the state now reserves and more freely exercise the right to shoot people. People! It's community building that slows down crime and violence.

Your not thinking about the cavitation and action of the slug after it penetrates the first layer bone. In this case it's mostly the kinetic energy and spalling of both the target and slug. The 22 was indeed a hitmans choice in crowded public areas. Often because easy to cover up the sound very hard to recover enough of the slug for ballistic testing as most the time due to said bullet spall increased effect using hollow point or custom rounds. The weapons are cheap and easy to acquire most places around the globe 🌍 etc it was effective as you can see from your experiment. All said reasons to why the .22 is the most popular of small game and varmint guns in North America. From personal experience small game and bird kills are easy even at 65 or 75 meters away with my Cooey Lakefield 10 shot semi. And this is a gun you need high quality ammo that with experience I fully agree on. More then a few times I have had to deliver a finish shot due to crap ammo and anything less then a clean kill is not acceptable as it is a very unpleasant experience.

What is a better way to stop mass shootings rather than taking guns away? Legit question. Is it mental health services? More guns? I would argue we already tried more guns. So if you agree we need to stop the epidemic of gun violence, well, how do we do that and still protect our constitution? Gun control is the common answer because it is a clear answer that demonstrably works. That is the problem.

22 is such an unpredictable round. I've had one cut a 2 litre bottle of water in half before by making a complete circle though the bottle. Almost coming back out at the same point of entry.

If I have to use my .22 in self defense, I will shoot all 11 rounds very quickly and very very accurately. The reason I like my .22 is because its actually quite hard to miss.

For the .22 Long Rifle Tests, it would have been so much more meaningful, if you would have cut the Skulls in half, so you could verify the fragmentation of the rounds, and if they were so badly fragmented, that meaningful Ballistics matching, would have been impossible, because of the fragmentation and deformation of the remaining fragments, as I have heard by many other sources, Forensic Files among them. I am not saying that all .22 Bullets would render themselves non-Testable, as there are an endless amount of conditions and scenarios, and I can imagine that an almost spent, non-Hollow Point Bullet, having gone through a thin section of Skull, like the Orbital Eye Socket, or the Temple, from a long distance, would be one example of a potentially Comparative Testing capable .22 Bullets that have been shot through a Skull. It would have been better if the Manufacturers just put red Ballistic Gel inside the Skulls, instead of trying to make it more dramatic by putting mostly liquid inside it. Then if you would have been more Scientific about it, and cut the Skulls in have after the .22 Tests, we could hav really seen what was going on inside the Brain Matter, how many pieces it fragmented into, the paths the Bullets/Fragments travelled, etc., instead of having to just guess what was going on. How about another .22 Test, with Solid Bullets VS. Hollow Point, and ask the Skull Manufacturer to put Ballistic Gel inside the Skull? In fact, make it clear Ballistic Gel, so we can easily see the Fragmentation, and travel of the Bullets/Fragments.

I'll bet the Gun Nuts and Liberal Gun grabbers are NOT gonna like this Video, IMO! Me? The Video shows what a . 22 round can do, in various weapons, to the simulated Head of a Human being. People, always Safety First with All Weapons, All the time,. And, follow your local laws, Always!

Stingers arent good for going clean through, use an fmj preferrably ina velocitor if you want to go all the way through. We use the hp velocitors and fmj stingers for hog hunting in Georgia and its fairly rare I have to shoot twice

At shorter range rounds have a higher velocity and are more likely to be in the range of expansion. From a greater distance the velocity can fall below that threshold and thus result in deeper penetration.
Jeremy Voland
Behind the eye is also thin go to the bottom of the eye socket and it makes the bullet ricochet up and bounce even more but the 22 is deadly because of the accuracy
Z.D MOODY Day ago
I love you you just leave your pistol on the table as you shoot the head.
SocksOnFeet Day ago
" 'BARELY' went in to the skull" .....that's like saying he "ONLY" went to the morgue . For being such a gunfile how did you not know the 22 is deadly, a bullet doesn't have to explode arms off to be deadly lol...If you unload a full magazine at someone a few are bound to go in, nobody shots just 1 bullet and call it good lmao.

I was waiting for Doug Marcaida to pop up and say: "It wil keeeel". I shot a lot of Springbuck with a 22Lr rifle when I was younger, if you popped them in the ear they dropped right where they stood.

Countless assassins, both crime and state sanctioned, can't be wrong... But first, a small lesson on human physiology. The forehead is the thickest part of the human skull, its just the way we, as humans, are engineered to be protected from environmental dangers. That's why boxers wear gloves; in the early days of the sport, which was bear- knuckles, some knew that fact, so when an opponent threw a punch, they would lower their head, and the fist would strike the hard area, breaking the fingers. If you try the temple which is significantly thinner in bone, you will get better results. Besides that, the most preferred method of taking a target down with a .22, is repeated shots in the back of the head, or on the side, not full frontal.That's what assassins used anyway.

from various doco's etc I hear they are "effective" as used a lot in car jackings gone bad type things and sometimes can be forensically be hard to track to the gun they are fired from being smaller rounds breaking apart easier inside the head

22 is good for plinking, practice and more of an "offensive " pick, when picking one up with certain intentions.
