    While we're on the subject of .22CFs...

    Does anybody have any experience of this round?

    With a 50gr bullet at 4600 fps I wonder how many actually made it to the target without vapourising?

    Still, I couldn't afford to replace the barrel after every 20 rounds so that would rule it out for me.

    How do you think your FLO would view that one?

    Between the years 1972 and 1993 when only .22cfs were permitted for Deer shooting in the Irish Republic I used a 5.6X61 Vom Hofe Super Express, Mauser Mod.66 rifle.
    The factory bullet was a Paraboloid Blei Spitz Geschoss 77gr driven at 3708fps and was made by Klaus Mayer of Germany for Walter Gehmann, the patent holder.
    I used to re-load it with the 71gr Norma projectile and Nobel No.O powder.

    As a matter of technical interest bullet diameter was .228 unlike most .22cfs which are .224 .
    The case was similar in size and appearance to a necked-down .30-06 .
