PENETRATING POWER OF THE .22 WINCHESTER AUTOMATIC
PENETRATING POWER OF THE .22 WINCHESTER AUTOMATIC—I wish to know something about the .22 Winchester Automatic rifle.
As an owner of one I will say that it is far more powerful than the standard .22 rifle. I have killed a hawk at a distance of 125 yards and many others at a shorter range. For target practice, I use a steel plate 10x10 inches square at 100 yards, with a little practice a person can make straight hits. I tried the same plate at 280 yards, made two hits out of five; at 110 yards, will penetrate 2 inches of chestnut wood.
