Does anyone have any updates on how their 22lbc is going?
I'm looking at the 6lbc or the 22 but I really like the idea of the 22 if it can get a 75 grain bullet up to 3150 in a 22 or 24 inch barrel.
I would be mainly using this as a coyote and informal paper puncher.
I'm also curious about the 22x6.8, how does it handle 69,70, and 75 grain bullets?
Yes the 22 LBC will hit that.
The 22X6.8 will handle those bullets very well. It will exceed all the new whiz bangers like the Nosler and the Valkyrie that are getting the big smoke and mirror presentation right now. Quite simply it has more case capacity than the V. plus runs at higher pressure than the N.and only a LR shooter (ON PAPER) will shoot a 90 out of a 223. Below that the 22X6.8 rules them both.
The 22X6.8 or LBC will do fine on coyotes but I do believe you would be happier with a 6X6.8 shooting the 58's or 70's. Plus it is a tad easier to make brass.
The best firearm for self defense? Any loaded one will do.
