22 mag at 200 yards



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm planning on picking up a Savage 93 left hand version in 22 mag and was wondering what the drop is (ball park) of that round at 200 yards? I'm guessing zeroing should be done at 100 yards but i'm gonna play around with that anyhow.

When zeroed in at 100 yds, I've seen about a 6 inch drop at 150. I have never tried 200 yds, which I believe is too far for a .22 WMR.

Mine has a Nikon Monarch on it with BDC. Too much glass, I know. I had it zeroed in at 100, but gave 50 a try. With 50 gr Federal ammo, the BDC corresponds pretty good with 50, 100, and 150 yds. I may just leave it like that, at least until I run out of that ammo.

I'm shooting 33g Remmy Premiers and zero at 100 yards. Here's my table:

50 + 3/4"
75 + 3/4"
100 0
125 - 2"
150 - 5 1/2"
175 - 10 1/4"
200 - 17"

I bought a nice Marlin 22 magnum in SS with the idea that I could shoot it in our 200 yard High Power matches. Honestly, it just couldn't cut it. It was inconsistent and I could see a real butt whipping coming if I brought it to the firing line at 200.

Instead, we went to the 17HMR which turned out to be a terrific move!
My 17HMR Marlin needs 4 MOA to move from a 100 yard zero to a 200 yard zero. I've seen folks claim that it requires 5 MOA "up" from 100 but that's been my experience....4MOA.

Since we started competing with the HMR, I fired a 500/500 with 23 X at 200 yards with the Marlin 917V. Heck, the rifles are fairly inexpensive. Buy both!

Good luck and have fun!

My Savage 93fv in 22wrm is 1" high at 100, which means at 200 it is about where the scope reticle goes from massive thick to the thin single "line" - handy aiming point. Clay targets at 224 yards on the berm of the range I use are an all day affair...

My Extreme Rimfire Silhouette match notes say 70 clicks from 100 to 200 [ 1/8 min clicks ]. This is with CCI 40gr TMJ

The HMR does shoot a ton flatter. At 150 and 225, you see major drops in elevation. Here's my notes on 17g HMR:

50 + 1/4"
75 + 3/8" (weird, but this is consistent)
100 0
125 - 1"
150 - 2 1/2"
175 - 5"
200 - 8 1/2"

Rayjay - thats what i'm looking for since I use that same ammo. It should get me pretty close into the ballpark.

Thanks, Mike

Flatter does not mean it is more accurate. It just means it has less drop at longer ranges.

For 40 grain .22WMR I start with these numbers and tweek as needed:

100 yds = 0
150 yds = -6
200 yds = -19
250 yds = -42
300 yds = -74
350 yds = -119
400 yds = -177
450 yds = -249
500 yds = -341


Trying to dope the wind is where things really get ugly.

Any one try this with the Hornady plastic tip ammo? I just got 400 rounds, waited 4 months for it. But I have not tried it yet. Expected to have a Savage 93 Classic by now but a couple of shotguns got in the way. I would think the Hornady would do a little better than regular ammo.

I read a thread a while back about using either a 125 or 150 zero and was very compelling for long range shooting. I remember he really liked using the Rem. 33 vmax-it ws flatter than the rest.

Yeah, that seems to be one technique I've read about over at snipershide along with shimming the front of the scope. I haven't seen anyone using 22mag over there though, just 22lr, so thats why I though I'd ask here. I might try 100 yards zeroed and go from there.

In my gun, with 33 gr. Rem. Premier and a 3x9 mildot scope, it works out as follows: cross hair 1" high @ 100 yds: 1st dot = 160 yds.; 2nd dot = 200 yds.; 3rd dot = 235 yds; 4th dot = 265 yds. Depending on wind, 200 yds. +/- can be accurate enough for a good chance on pigeons, crows, etc..

.22 Mag at 200 yards.

I found most jacketed .22 WMR loads shot very accurately in my iron sighted Savage Stevens Favorite Model 30 GM. I could load each round gently into the breach in exactly the same position with no feeding trauma whatever. The most accurate load (to my surprise) was the Federal 50 grain hollowpoint. From rear sight notch 4, with the front sight bead filed off and blued for a neat square post, at 100 yards the 50 grain Federal at 1650 fps struck immediately above point of aim in a startling 1" group. Each notch elevation was 3" at 100 yards. At notch 8 I tried a group at 200 meters and made a 2.5 inch group immediately above point of aim. This indicates a mid-range trajectory of 12 inches above at 100 yards. With Remington Premier 33grain Vmax spitzer at 2,000 fps I got my 100 yard group above point of aim at 100 yards in notch 1 in 1.12" and was hitting in an 8" black at 300 meters in notch 7, indicating about an 18 inch mid-range trajectory above at 100 yards. Out of curiosity, I tried the same load with the rear sight notch positioned in a slight groove I made at the top of the sight ramp and tried the Rem. Premier at 400 yards with a 12:00 hold and struck 40" below point of aim but grouped in only 8 inches. Elevation was equivalent to 27 inches above at 100 yards. The Winchester 34 grain HP at 2,134 fps did about the same but grouped in only 6 inches at 400 yards. The more common 40 grain .22 WMRs are all quite similar in ballistic behavior and will make good play to 300 meters; they group about 3-3.5 inches at 200 meters from my rifle. I have noticed that the Savage 93G, a bolt-action, clip-fed repeater has virtually the same barrel length and iron sights which might be modified by bead removal like mine. It also has the new Savage accu-trigger; this might prove an excellent starter .22 WMR. Chiefly, I have been target shooting and trying out the potentials of the various .22 WMR loads. I hope the above data along with various ballistics charts will help you.
