Consider this an official notice. Posting articles from other sites is fine if you follow 2 simple rules: 1) Only post a small summary of the article. 2) Include a link to the original content with summary. Failure to comply with the above will result in a warning. Repeated violations will result in you being banned. These days more and more original content is being placed directly on websites. In order to combat copyright protection and maintain ownership of content, sites are employing people to hunt down unauthorized reposts and contacting those sites with warnings. Posting someone else's content harms them in several ways, most of all the circumventing of their sites and thus the loss of traffic. This is becoming more serious of an offense across the internet and lawsuits are becoming common. Understanding the simple rules posted above will not only help this site, but also those who are creating content. It will also keep you from being sued as this site is a 3rd party engine, meaning YOU are responsible for the copyright violation, not us. We will always abide by author requests to remove content.

    Can you guys fill me in? Is this as powerful at .22 hornet? Put down a turkey?

    Yes, it will put a turkey's lights out. It's a 22 Mag necked down to a .17 bullet. I am guessing it is not as powerful as a 22 Hornet.

      It has a heck of a flat trajectory, compared to the .22lr. Makes it a very accurate gun under 150yds or so.

      Here's a neat chart.
