Browning sa22 long rifle



Log in to see fewer ads
Shot a gray squirrel with my new to me blazer hollow points.

Lead round nose reformed with a Neal Waltz hollow point die.

They function in my sa22 PERFECT.

Neighbor Bob and i, shot two.
Mine in the neck.
Bob behind the eye.

Took their heads off.
Just a small strip of hide holding them on.

Bob said he heard the bullet hit..
"Whump!!!!"

Squirrel hunters dream ammo.

Just thought I'd post this in Browning fourm.
My sa22 is fairly new Japan made.

Bobs was made in 1951,
His has ZERO finnish left on it.
He's carried it EVERYWHERE.

And side by side, they both shoot excellent.
Little tack drivers!
No telling how many thousands and thousands of rounds have been shot through his.


And now.... the bad news..

My dog Rose..
Somehow..
Bumped my rifle over in the pickup , when i got out to shut the pasture gate.
Bob drives up.. and as i walked by my pickup.
I try to push the door shutt.. THREE TIMES!
The buttstock was stuck in the door! !
Putt a real nice ding in the stock.
And a nice big scratch...

Showed Bob..
He said...Hummm ?
Character..
Let's go up to the barn...
He finds some dark green gorilla duck tape.
Cutts off a small square.
And tapes it over the ding and scratch.

I like to fell off the shop stool laughing!!!

Ya, i know..
But thinking I'll leave it just like that.
Bobs 76 years old. And a dear friend.
Been neighbors since i was born.

Memories.

Yes.. rifles do get banged up some when you use them.

I believe there is a point of impact difference when shooting up an incline or decline.

Glad to hear the good report on the Neal Waltz Hollow points, back during the shortage I bought anything I could find, ended up with over 3000 RN! I heard about the Waltz die bought one and now I am set with HP ammo for years to come. I hunt Nutria rats during the late winter here in South LA, HP do a much better job and tend to ricochet less than RN when shooting near water.

I have hollow pointed 1000 Win M-22, and 1500 Rem Thunderbolt and 600 CCI AR Tactical! got a bunch left to HP with the Waltz Die. The M-22 shot much better after HP with the die. the others all shot about the same accuracy wise.

On scratching guns and making dents in the wood--battle scars signs of well used firearms add character if you ask me!!
