Colt M4 .22 @ 200 yds

Shot this with my Colt M4 .22lr @ 200 yards using bulk Winchester.
Honestly thought it would just bounce off......let alone rip right through it!

Well it fooled me. The bottle was about half full.

Here is the gun...



and here is said propane bottle...



All hits at 200 yds using the dot for a few and iron's for the rest.

Well for those that say a .22 will just **** them off.....well....

Even at 200 yds it has enough ass to rip cleanly through a steel propane bottle....so.....
2 of those in the chest at 200yds will do more than **** them off....

Ah..and on that note...

I put 900 rnds through her in 2 days with no lube or cleaning and she functioned 110%!
The only complaint I have about this gun is cleaning it.

But with a can of scrubber and a bore snake, its not that bad. Great, very reliable( no problems in about 2k total rounds so far) and tons of fun!!

My next trip to shoot will involve some bench time to see how accurate she can really be.

Don't you just love it when this happens?I've got a 10-22 with some trick stuff on it that does the same kind of long range stuff!

Yes I do!!

I have a nice tricked out 10/22(20") as well that is scoped and is great shooter at 200 yds as well.

This M4 is all stock except for the PA dot and rear sight. What amazed me was that the .22 still had enough ass to rip clean through a steel propane bottle at 200 yds out of a 16" barrel.

I may stretch it out further at the next go around.....say 250 and 300 yds.
(I will use the 10/22 for the longer barrel.)
