    Here is a video of a young lad shooting a suppressed Savage Mark II, with standard velocity rounds from 100 yards, on a deer head (dead). Very interesting results.

    VERY interesting video!!

    I didn't think it had enough energy from 100yds. to go clean through. I figured it'd penetrate but then bounce around inside the skull.

    Again, quite informative. Thanks for posting that!

    Expected results.

    The .22 is a very underappreciated round. VERY lethal but not great 1 shot stopping power.

    This video is pretty good on showing the power of the round.

    From what i understand, people fear a per round ammo tax. That, coupled with the inability to reload rimfires, will cause 22lr prices to skyrocket if a tax goes into place. That's just what I've gathered by talking to local gun store owners.
