  1. hi all, does anyone use Winchester 22lr subs. only im finding the ammunition dangerous, i have found in my sako the bullet sometimes wont load from the magazine into the chamber, i get no end of misfires and today i had a misfire and the cartridge got stuck in the chamber, i found the same using the Winchester .17 ammo in my CZ, im going to take the ammo back to the shop, i have had no issues using eleys, Rws and cci, in both calibres has anyone else found issues with Winchester ammo. regards Tony

    what can i say, I've been shooting for many years from target to hunting, but i have always had a soft spot for rabbit shooting, I've used shotguns including moderated which for bolting rabbits or shooting over ferrets are brilliant, I've used sub air rifles and FAC which have their place, and of course the .22lr which i have the sako finnfire, which is a very accurate , but today was my first use of a CZ452 .17 American, with a Hawke 44x16x50 scope. i shot 3 for 3 using Hornby 17grain v-max polymer tip i cannot believe the accuracy and the distance i took the rabbits, the first was close about 30 yards i think the bullet went straight through as there was no pelt damage only a small hole the next was around 60 yards again no pelt damage, but the third was over a hundred yards i paced it to 120, it was a shot that with my .22lr i would have thought twice about, but with the .17 the bullet hit exactly where I placed the cross hair, only damage was a small entry hole with a slightly larger exit. i expected more damage to the rabbits but all 3 are edible. i did notice the crack of the bullet when fired but it didn't disturb the rabbits. sum up had a brilliant morning. regards Tony
