    I bet those CCI Mini-Mags would take a Roo down too.They look like giant rabbits.

    Awesome shot.
    I once took a pot shot offhand with a Single-Six using one of the hot .22 LR rounds. My friend hunting with me saw him with the bino's just sitting in a crook.
    I said "watch this", and I drew, aimed for about a second, and shot him in the eye,
    I have always called that one my miracle shot, but now I'm officially retiring it from the "awesome shot" category,
    After your shot, mine is just another good shot. You are now officially "The Man"!

    My buddy and I shoot regularly at 200 yards but 340 is extreme.

    Mathew Quigly would be proud of you. the best I've done with my 10/22 and CCI mm's is ping pong balls at 75yds.

    I am now out of them but I will have to restock and try for 200

    Congrats on the long, long shot Jack!
    Little shy of 400 yards.....heck of a LONG shot for the .22 caliber.
    We've been wackin spinner targets out to 250yds as of late (useing
    mil-dot scopes.) We finally got us a good "straight-line" distance of
    600yds set up and plan to try out the .223's here in a couple'a days.
    With the 600 yard distance, we also have our targets set up 3/4th's up a 60 feet
    dirt bank and "plan" to see just how far the .22's (CCI Blazers) will actually reach on the, or out to the 600 yard targets.
    One of us spotti'n and the other shooting and switching back and forth. (just gotta know!) We plan to wait for a all but calm day. (should be able to see the dirt/dust kick up with the .22 hits)

    Great shooting Jack! I like hearing about those long range shots!

    incredible luck does happen.

    A while back i was at the rifle range with a buddy and we were haivng fun shooting some inline black powder guns. i had brought my kentucky long flintlock.. was using cotton(tshirt) patched lead balls, bore butter as a lube, and pyrodex as a charge. as we were leaving I wanted to get the last charge out of the flintlock. my buddy was holding it and noticed a guy with an ar type rifle shooting at a water jug out at the end of the range. somewehere around 120yds. he's been there for an hour trying to site the ar in. had optics all over it. big eye strain relief stuff. optice must have cost more than the gun. so my buddy asks the guy if we can shoot at his target.. he smirks and waves his hand. so my buddy, stands there in a 'wrong stance' gun bbl swing to and from a bit, and he kracks off the shot with the usualy puff of smoke from a BP gun. when the smoke cleared.. the milk jug was swinging and bleeding water.. 120 yard non bench rested, iron sight, patched lead ball and all.. :) was a luck shot.. bt the ar guy grabbed his stuff and tossed it into his range bag and left with a disatisfied look.. :)
