    Right so we have covered that the .22lr is the perfect close quarters dangerous game rifle , what do you reccomend if I want to do a bit of long range with my Brno model 1? Thinking Gemsbok out to around 1200 metres? Better to use the 40gr hollowpoint for its higher BC or go with a CCI stinger for the increased velocity?

    Oh Yes, the 40 gr for long range work, NO question.

    My only concern with the 40gr would be overpenetration and potentially wounding an animal standing behind the quarry...

    You must be a better stalker & shot than me Bart. I've been using a 22 Mag. I better practice a bit.

    I think the CCI stingers, after all gemsbok are only thin skinned plains game.
