I will do varmint control at whatever distance I can make a headshot. I have hit raccoons out to 120 yards. Much past that, I’d prefer 17 hmr, or 17 WSM. Not because I don’t think the .22 can do it. It would be to tilt the odds way into my favor of 1 shot 1 kill. With more a more powerful scope, I would attempt a little more distance with .22. My preferred load for varmint work is Browning 40 BPR, or 40 grain Mini-Mags.
