    Any body on here using a 22 BR with a 18-20 inch barrel and light bullets such as 50-55 vmax? What kind of velocity are you getting?

    My 22br has a 14 twist barrel - 20" and the heaviest bullets I've used are 55's. I shoot squirrels with 40 gr. V-Max almost exclusively. I clock them at "very freaking fast". 50's and 55's register "pretty durned fast".

    Did I mention that I don't have a chronograph?:p jd
