What's the max range of a .22 Mag, with a skilled shooter behind the glass?

I've shot at 250 yds and walked my shots onto target but I'd say 200 max. Wind is killer at that range. At least that's my excuse:o

The .22 mag bullet slows too rapidly to be accurate at long ranges. I would limit it to 150 yd for clean kills. If you need 200-250 yd the .17 HMR is good, but wind is a killer for that caliber too.:)

Roger that. That's pretty much what I thought... .100 to 150 tops...
