Here's a chart from Varmint Al's website.

Thanks for the chart, Sniper. Really puts the performance of the various rimfires into perspective.

One thing I'm trying to understand about the chart: it shows .22lr as having zero drop at 100 yards. I can't think of any .22lr ammo I've shot that would have zero drop at 100 yards. Am I missing something, or does Al have a typo in his chart?

[updated]
Oh never mind, I see he's saying that it was ZEROED at 100 yards, so that all ammo types would have a baseline of zero drop at 100 yards, as a starting point for comparison. I guess the point was to see how all ammo types dropped off AFTER 100 yards, having been zeroed at 100 yards.

The chart doesn't have 22 Long Rifle out to 300 yards. Could you please correct that problem as I think it would help me when I am taking pot shots at the 300 yard gong. (Yes I do hit it about half the time once I have the drop figured out.)

Hitting something with a .22LR at 300 takes some skill; I'm impressed. Extrapolating from the chart, I'm guessing that means you have nearly 9 FEET of drop at that distance. You probably have to point your .22 at about a 45 degree angle when you shoot, just to compensate.

so at 100 yards my .22mag is pretty much similar to the .17 in terms of trajectory? Sweet. I like my golden boy with irons over my my marlin .17hmr bull stainless bolt.
But i will always have room in my heart for my standard .22mag marlin bolt action.
