1st Kill



Log in to see fewer ads
Just formally christened my new 457 in 22 WMR. Woodchuck at 70 yards using Hornady 30 grain V-Max. Unbelievable impact. Bullet entered behind front shoulder and went slightly rearward. Haven't seen a 'chuck in years opened up like this one. I am so happy to have finally gotten a 22 WMR after nearly 50 years.

The 22mag is an impressive little round. Bullets weights upto 50, although 40 is as high as I have used. They also have a FMJ round that can kill all out of proportion if the placement is right.

Hi Folks,
I will try to get a picture up. I am one of those old guys that does not have a smart phone, but I do have a new camera I bought on Saturday. The kill is gone but I will try for a picture of my 457.
Thank you.
