You must be bragging. A .22lr drops about 475 inches at 500 yards. You can´t compensate for all this with your scope, so you would have a hold over of several yards. Not buying it, apart from the impossible hold over there is so much deviation at that distance that you´re not hittin a squirrels eye, you´re not even hittin a squirrel, you´re not even hittin a family of squirrels all piled up and lined up next to one and other.
I call BS. a trained sniper couldn´t even do that with a caliber and a rifle that was designed to make long range shots, edit, hitting a squirrel in the eye at that distance, I mean.

Killing animals for fun is totally wrong , we should only kill what we eat . Killing a pest on your property is one thing but shooting Gods creations for fun I can gauretee you God has an issue with.

you guys are under estimating the .22lr. There are plenty vidoes online of 400 yard plus shots. It can be done, but at a squirrel?
Just to brag myself though, I just this weekend rang a 8 inch plate at 120 yards with my xdm 9mm. Best shot of my 25 year life.
