15 shots of SK STANDARD+ at 200 meters (218 yards) with my 10-22 with Lothar Walther 21.5" Bull Barrel. This ammunition is the best that I found for this distance and it's not the most expensive.

Excellent!

Fine shooting, there, SANTY94 I get something slightly tighter @ 150m (160yards), using SK Pistol Match (and occasionally S Plus) and a Tasco CS 8-40x56mm set @ 24x. Did you shoot @ forty or lower magnification?

I wonder if you used this range: LINK to the longest-distance range in France (and Europe, apparently): http://perso.wanadoo.fr/tir.mailly/

Montesson is nearer to me, but I would like to visit Mailly, too, one day. Good shooting.

one day my friend and i were shooting our 22s with cheap bulk winchester hp ammo and shooting an 18inch target at 300yds we didnt adjust our scopes though we just aimed 8ft above the target and hit it about once every 20 runds but tore up the ground around it i will say im not much into competitons unless its with friends but at 200-300yds with a 22 it is impossible to kill anything when my bullets finally hit the steel plate after about a second the bullet stayed the exact same as it did before fired it didnt have enough force to mushroom or anything this was all done with complete stock 10/22s with bushnell 2-9x40 scopes

BTW, not to start fights. but the .22 has ~45ftlbs at 300yrds, more than enough to deform the projectial, even subs going 1000fps don't take a second to reach 300yrds, sounds like your a born hater!

Crete, I use a CS 8-40x56 and to shoot at 200meters I use the 40X. I'm registred on the forum of Mailly but I have never fired over there at the moment.
Thanks for your encouragements

I shot some at 200 yards just for the heck of it and I found that with my 18 yard zero I had to aim about 6' above the target with dynapoints to hit the target paper after I found that out I picked out an aiming point with my cross hairs and fired 10 shots. I had 2 seperate groups of 5 about 5" apart that you could cover with the bottom of a spagetti can. Nothing great but sure was an eye opener. I was shooting aguila subsonics but didn't try them or the Eley subsonic+ for groups but was just trying to use up some dynapoints for trigger time.

born hater of what i will tell you at 300yds the 22 doesnt have the enough push i dnt know what it is but it takes a hell of a bullet at my 300yd range to even splater on the steel target the 223 just leaves the whole bullet in tact and just bonds itself to the steel but the 300win mag is the only rifle i have that will penetrate it the 7.62x39 has about 500lbs i think at 300yds but when it hits it does nothing but swing a little

Very interesting.

When I shoot at an old metal (steel?) shovel @ 150m, the SK Pistol Match goes completely through it four times out of five, when hitting a previously un-hit (dented) part of the shovel -- which had weakened it.

The shovel I'm talking about is ~1/16" thick and I am using it to test ammo modifications, in order to reduce penetration, rather than increase it and I was finding it frustrating to be able to perforate an old (partly rusty) British-made (Crocodile Trade Mark) shovel @ 150 meters! Finally I figured out how to stop the SK ammo from going through the thing

I'm not sure what the best 200 yd ammo is, but for my 2013 the Midas L is the best I've tried. At 50, 100 or 200 it produces good groups, when the wind is kind, which isn't often. I shoot Wolf ME all other times as it shoots very well for the price. From a 100 yd zero, I have to come down 7 moa for 50 yds, or go up 19.5 moa for 200 yds.

The difference between the Midas and ME in my rifle at 50 yds is on average .13-.15. Pretty big difference. The ME would shoot tighter except for the occasional supersonic rds in some lots I've had. The Midas is awesome.
