Guys. before we get started on the subject I myself would never try and take a deer at any range with a .22 LR bullet, I think its unethical. But, check out this review of CCI Stingers from cheaper than dirt.com. Top of the Line Bullets Reviewer: MADDOG 11/22/2008 If your looking for the #1 22 Long Rifle bullet then this is surely it. Top of the line accuraccy and stopping power. You see everyone else talking about it killing squirrels but I've witnessed these bullets actually take down numerous deer from any where from 50 to about 200 yards, if you dont believe me just try it. One shot to the neck or dead on the shoulder can surely do the trick to a big doe and a that monster buck.
