My curiosity has been peaked with the power of a 22-250. I figured I could research my question or just come ask ya’ll since it seems this place has the smartest most intelligent gun experts in all the land! I mean when ya stop and think about it we should probably all be wearing white lab coats and pocket protectors with the knowledge we all have! When I think about the 22-250 I don’t necessarily think of it as a deer cartridge, but my thinking has come around this past weekend. I shot my third deer with this caliber and have yet to have one take a step after the shot, so much so that they are dead before ever hitting the ground. What has me puzzled is that I watched my brother in law shoot a deer at the same distance with a 300 mag, making a spectacular behind the shoulder shot and the deer runs 50 to 75 yards before falling. I’m no rifle expert but this makes no since to me. What is it about this small lightning fast caliber that makes it so deadly? Just being curious and really slow at work today. Let me hear your thoughts!
