Re: Best cal.
22 long or long rifle. 22 mag is typically not as accurate and acuarcy is what its all about with squirells. I like a bolt action 22 rifle with a 4 power decent scope (not the cheap junk 22 scope) that comes with many of them. Head shots on squirells is what you want You have to be patient and wait for the good shot. Try all the 22 shells and find the one that shoots best for your rifle and use that. They do shoot different.You have to know just where your rifle shoots at various distances and how good it groups If the group is bigger than a squirells head you have a problem. You never want to cripple a squirell or any animal for that matter.
