Does anyone have a favorite .22lr rifle? I figure if it can kill an alligator, it can kill a zombie.
I believe the problem is with the rotary mags. They seem to get jammed up easy. I know I labeled my mags and some jammed far more frequently then others.Must be something wrong with the 10/22, I have put thousands and thousands of rounds through mine and can't recall ever having a misfire. My favorite .22 though is a 50 year old Marlin Model 80 bolt action with a 3-9 power scope on it. It never misses
A .22lr will kill a gator just fine. It's just a pain clearing jams while one is thrashing around.If your primary goal is killing alligators, and or zombies, a 22 is the wrong choice. If those are your objectives, then stopping power is what you are after. 357 mag, or shotgun. Ken has a history with gators, I'd take his advice.
I bought my Ruger 10/22 in 1976 and in the time between 76 & '80 it was used extensively knocking off ground squirrels firing approx 500 rounds per day, May-Sept. one shot one kill... :laughing:.22lr is a very unreliable round. They tend to jam and misfire allot. I own several .22 guns and none of them feed or fire reliably. I own a 10/22 and a g22. both feed and fire unreliably no matter how often they are cleaned or what ammo I feed them. I would recommend another cartridge for defense purposes.
