Lever action henry in 22lr loaded with subsonic remington. I keep it as my "bb" gun, and it gets used the most. Did you know that subsonic and shorts have about the same speed out of the barrel?
The same, except that it is usually loaded with CCI subsonic shorts or subsonic LR.
If you compare CCI subsonic shorts and long rifles, they are the same velocity.
The Marlin 917v has killed many squirrels. It has a 4-12x Redfield scope. Accuracy is outstanding.
