Same here in NE Kansas...no rabbits. Used to love shooting running rabbits with my dad's old Iver Johnson 410. Later got my own single shot 22, but nothing was as much fun as that old 410. Since...

Inconsistency of performance is the Achilles Heel of Mach 2 ammo. I personally would not have faith in it as a long distance round. That said, I have made some very long shots on squirrels,...

Be sure to let us know how it shoots. I have been thinking about one for myself, even though I have an Anschutz 1517MPR and a Sako FinnFire II. Love that HMR round.

You may well have hit the defect trifecta..wrong ammo, bad barrel, questionable scope. You corrected the ammo question; the other two remain. Have a gunsmith take a look and if there is no damage...
