    Default 22lr or 22 mag for ptarmies

    I will be going to Adak in dec and there are a lot of ptarmagin over there they typically are at 50-70 yards so I was wondering taking my 22 single six should i shoot magnums or 22lr because it is very windy over there any ideas.

    I would think the increased velocity of the 22 mag would help mitigate wind deflection a bit. Either one is plenty for patrmies though, if wind isn't a factor. I assume you're going to be using body shots at 50-70 yards with a pistol, so the other thing I would recommend is use a non-expanding bullet to try to minimize meat damage. Have fun!

    The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

    Noone has a more intimate understanding of, or deeper appreciation for freedom, than a soldier who has fought for it in a country where it does not exist.
