      Not quite 100 yards, I think, but my Grandad used to stick a kitchen match in a .22 shell, then sit on the porch and light it. I spent a lot of money on shells before I did it with my Marlin .22.

      This was the same rifle he regularly controlled the bluejay population in the gardens. He covered his entire property while sitting on the steps with a cup of coffee and a pack of smokes.

      So many of these stories are from the "old crowd". He spoke of how HIS daddy had to budget for a box of shells each year. Where he was raised, people who couldn't shoot didn't get meat.

        I could if I still had my T/C Encore pistol .22-250 with the T/C scope.

          Also, not a problem for the McMillan/Fisher .50 BMG. One-hole groups are typical. But with such a large bullet, that would be cheating.
