Default How far will a .22 LR Kill?

pretty damn far apparently, if you go with penetrating 1/2" pine as a gauge for lethal force.

Bodies aren't made of pine, they are made of flesh and bone and covered in clothing.

This seems to only answer the question of how far away can you make a hole in a piece of wood with a 22lr. While it probably has enough energy left at that range to make a hole in wood or kill a varmint(about 23ft lbs), it would take a hell of a shot and a lot of luck to bring down anything over 100lbs with 40 grains at 440 yards(it will die after bleeding to death maybe).

He said in the beginning the army established 59 ft lbs is required to puncture 1/2" pine which equates to "potential" lethal force.

I thought that was more about how much force it took to wound person enough to force their withdraw from the battlefield.

also can you imagine the drop on that shot, it must be dozens of feet, which makes it even harder to make a good shot.

Sorry I didn't listen to the whole video.

I've always been told it's a mile and a half if you're using 60gr rounds...

A long, lingering, ugly death can be achieved from up to 400 or so yards on animals up to about 300 pounds, but I'd say if you want faster results from shots that don't hit the central nervous system or sever a major blood vessel by sheer luck, hits up to 150 yards away might take a few hours to half a day if you make a lung shot (they suffocate in their own blood or collapse their lung, or die of shock).
