This is the bullet that I took out of the Javelina I shot in my yard one night. It is standard velocity Winchester .22 LR. I used the standard velocity as the bullet does not blow up as fast as the high velocity stuff and penetrates better on larger critters like dogs and coyotes and Javelina.

Fired from a 16" barreled rifle.

and especially FN HP's have always been a very effective bullet.

This is the only cast bullet I have ever recovered. Shooting steeply downhill at a rock chuck, I noticed the bullet hit in the dirt about 15 yards beyond the chuck after passing through.

A 52 gr. LBT .22 cal. FN HP shot from my Coyote Classic in 218 MB.

I went and picked up one of Gary's Flat top tools at his shop today and got to work on some rounds.

I worked up about 30 of those a couple weeks

Lay out some loosely wrapped large rags in a line ... you can stop bullets fairly easily but make sure you have a good backstop just in case ..
