Winchester Expiditer 22 LR 32gr HP Ammo

I just shot a large Groundhog in our back yard tonight at about 70 yds with
my Marlin 880 SQ rifle. I was using this Winchester Xpediter ammo for the first time.
The feet per second is listed as 1640 with a 32 gr HP bullet, well a well placed
shot did the trick, the hog was facing me and I swear I put the bullet down his throat through his mouth. I had a good steady rest and with a 6-18 x40 power scope ,(I know really overkill for a 22! ) I put the shot exactly where
I wanted. That Varmint was DEAD! one shot Good Night Irene!
I have not tried this ammo out on targets for groups yet. Has anyone else
used this ammo? Works well on Woodchucks with little mess.
In its day the six gun was as common as the cell phone, and just as annoying when it went off in the theater! Support Your Local Sportsmens Club and Join the NRA!

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. - John 3:16 KJV

Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun. - Ecclesiastes 8:15 KJV

"The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed." - 40th President of the United States Ronald Reagan 1911-2004
