    awesome, my lady has got pretty damn good with ours, barbies head did NOT survive at 100 yards! though recently the grouping has started to be a little inconsistent, hopefully we don't have some barrel damage.

    Looks just like my rig troubles. Excellent set up.

    OP- .22LR is extremely deadly. If you didn't know a SVRN projectile will go through 5 milk jugs (gallon) before stopping. The 5.7X28 (depending on the projectile) does some really nasty stuff like tumbling or fragmenting when it finds its meaty target. It would be more than sufficient (once again depending on the projectile) to get the job done. I am not talking about state or federal laws here because they are not even relevant to your post and you know what they are already. #1 first and foremost shot placement is key which you alluded to already. You can shoot large game with a .30 caliber projectile in the wrong place and lose it (ask me how I know )
    "Never forget, even for an instant, that the one and only reason anybody has for taking your gun away is to make you weaker than he is, so he can do something to you that you wouldn't let him do if you were equipped to prevent it. This goes for burglars, muggers, and rapists, and even more so for policeman, bureaucrats, and politicians."

    same, I've lost one deer using a 30-06, my shot was a bit far to the front and probably damaged mostly skin we looked for it for 3 days in case it bled out, Feel bad that they can be some really tough creatures. Imagine taking a 30-06 slug through the underarm and still being able to run for miles! unbelievable.
    agreed on the 22 lr. the boar usually dropped in their tracks and twitch, even with the thick skulls they have, half the time there was no exit wound. that little bullet must have bounced around making some pig brain smoothies. I wouldn't risk maiming another deer but If I was hungry and this is what I had I'd definitely not hesitate.

    Have any of you tried the Z-MAX bullets? these seem to be very effective from the reviews I've read.

    As everyone knows hunting is all about shot placement. You can kill anything with any caliber if you have perfect shot placement. Nothing new here. But only one person touched on ethics.

    I'm not condemn anyone for their choice of calibers that they hunt with but if you can't make that perfect shot that your caliber depends on then you should use something else that is more forgiving with shot placement. Every hunter knows someone that has made an awesome shot and pulled off something that most can't. That doesn't mean that you should attempt. Not to get on a soapbox but these as the things anti hunters dream of. Unethical hunter wounds and animal and then someone takes a pic and posts it on social media. Just fuel to attack our way of life.

    Having said all of that to the OP question of SHTF event then you probably would want something with more range and knock down to be as prepared as possible. A 556 rifle like the SCAR would be a better option IMO for a balance of power and weight. Plus in this scenario you would want a caliber that is easier to find. Not all states allow hunting deer with 556 but if its the end of the world what does it matter at that point.

    Anyway I leave you with this. One of my friends and professional hunter takes out a 200 pound hog with a subsonic 22 with thermal. Jump to the 1:00 mark to get to the meat.

    My mom used to drive us out in the pasture where we threw some corn. we'd sit very quiet for hours in the back of the truck waiting to hear the pigs come for the corn and my mom would turn on the headlights. They inevitably were blinded for a sec and my step dad would put a shot (marlin model 60) right close to the ear or eye and they dropped just like this one did. He had some skills, we had wild boar stew ALL THE TIME...haven't had that for years but man was it good!!

    the first minute was very clearly silencer porn....naughty
