How far is a .22LR effective?

The Firearm Blog, my favourite go to site for all things firearms, has a great video to follow on from our short video of available .22LR ammunition.

It discusses what the effective range is of a .22LR rifle:

The rifle used in the video is a CZ 455. They are brilliant little rifles and Reloaders has a good selection of those at their store.

Standard specifications:

CZ455 Standard 22LR

The CZ 455 Standard rimfire rifle corresponds in its construction to the CZ 455 Lux model, differentiating from it by its beech wood stock without a cheekpiece. The beech wood stock is offered on this model in order to bring to our customers a high-quality rimfire rifle for the more favourable price. This rimfire rifle comes with a 5 round magazine

In the new generation of the CZ rimfire rifles we have managed to combine experience accumulated over the years of development and production of this type of firearms with traditionally high quality, long service life, accuracy and modern trends.

This new model of the CZ 455 rimfire rifle is based on classical design, but incorporating a lot of improvements affecting most of the main parts of this rifle. First of all we have answered wishes by many of our customers for having an action enabling interchangeability of barrels. Adopting a new knowledge when making the barrel’s muzzle, which we have acquired in the course of development and manufacture of firearms designed for hunting at long distances, allowed shortening of barrel while retaining traditionally high accuracy.

Also the stock witnessed placing of small changes in order to achieve an even greater komfort during shooting. This was attained by optimising the grip ergonomics, among others, in the pistol grip area. A new method of connecting barrelled-action with the stock is now dominated by only two screws with improved interface securing simpler tightening and superior appearance.

Incorporating new features can be seen also on the sights. The rear sight enables adjustments for elevation and windage and the new shape of front sight base facilitates precise aiming.

The use of cold hammer forged barrel has been again retained as well as the receiver made from a single billet of high quality steel.

Traditionally uncompromising care for details is projected to each unit of this new rifle and will make envy of other shooters be it at target shooting or while hunting.
