Thread: 200 yds

  1. #1

    200 yds

    Just bought the January edition of Sporting Shooter (for something to read ) and was more than surprised to come across Rivers west winners page 91.it is about young people coming into the sport.
    The winner was and I quote .
    Dan 15 ,runs his own family shoot in West Susex.He shot five fox cubs with a .22 rimfire as they were about 200yards away from his release pen. unquote
    I have been shooting 45yrs and would not entertain shooting a fox, cub or not at 200 yds with a 22 rimfire.

    did he shoot them from 200 yds
    or was he 200 yds away from the pen?

    I dont buy it as its a bit of a comic.

    Surely he was saying that they were "200 yards away from his release pen"
    and not that he shot them at a range of 200yards with the rim fire!?

    Yep may have missed read it but left me with the impression he shot them at 200 yds may be wrong though
    But you are right it is a bit of a comic full of nothing really interesting.

    It comes across as "200 yards away from his pens" as I don't think the magazine would be that stupid to print "shot from 200 yards with a rimfire"

    Anything is possible with a Zeiss scoped rifle!
