Lethality of the .22lr

Very interesting article on the penetration of the .22lr round over at snipers hide.

Short version: At 300 yards and in 18 - 30mph winds the shooter hit a partially frozen turkey wrapped in three layers of clothing with a .22lr rifle. This is good shooting in my ( or, likely, anyone's book ), but the interesting bit is the .22lr fully penetrated the target.

It's an interesting write up; well worth the read.
