Over at F******k, Hypocrisy and Stupidity of Gun Control Advocates show us us this gem:
Lee-Enfield: Typically (originally) chambered for the .303 British, throwing 15-180 grains of lead pushed by 55 grains of powder.
Remington 7615P: Chambered in .223 Remington, an intermediate-power cartridge; typically 55-60 grains of bullet pushed by…loading varies, call it 30+ grains of powder. A far, far less powerful round than .303 British.
Ruger 10/22: Chambered for .22 Long Rifle; typically 32-40 (but can range from 20 to 60 grains) grain bullet pushed by 1 -2.2 grains of powder. .22LR is so weak that it is not considered an acceptable round for anything much bigger than a rabbit. (Gunnies, let’s not get into a discussion of shot placement and stealth and how you took that deer with a .22 LR head shot.)
So pretty clearly our monarchist hippie is an idiot. But the power of the rounds isn’t the funniest part.
“The Ruger 10/22 earned its name from its ability to kill twenty-two people for every ten shots fired.”
If you’ll review the cartridge specs, you’ll see that 22 with 10 claim would have to assume muzzle contact with people carefully lined up so you could (assuming sufficient penetration, which you aren’t going to get, any more than you could get them to line up to be shot) put a single bullet through 2-3 people.
That’s funny. Really, are you going to take down three 180-220 bad guys with a single round designed for squirrels and rabbits?
For the record, the 10/22 was named by Ruger because it’s a .22 rifle marketed with a ten-round magazine.
If .22 is so much deadlier than .223Rem/5.56NATO, why the heck are militaries around the world using the much more expensive rounds (not to mention the common .308Win/7.65NATO which is even more powerful than the wimpy .223)?
