Re: What's your favorite .22 rifle ??
I have one .22 LR. Here in South Africa it's very difficult to get a license for a .22LR mainly because people used it in the past to shoot all sorts of animals that the little.22 LR did not kill reliably.
I have an Anschutz 1420 sporter that I use with a Nikon Monarch UCC 4-12x40 for silhoette shooting and hunting springhares at night. My best is 18 springhares on one night. The Kalahari is littered with these "small kangaroos" and we give it to the local blacks to eat. (They eat everything!)
This rifle will put 5 shots through one ragged hole at 50 metres and shoots 1/2 MOA groups at 100m (if there is no wind)
As our only .22LR ammo manufacturer closed down last year, I now have to rely on imported ammo. I currently use RWS Geco from germany, but they are not as good as what I was used to. Any suggestions? I can get CCI and Eley here, but its very expensive.
