6.5cm Load for Rabbits? September 26, 2020, 08:06:44 PM I've been hunting rabbits and hares in southern California for a couple of years with my Ruger 10/22, but unfortunately no one makes a lead-free .22 round accurate past 50 yards. My only other rifle is a 30-06, but I'm about to get a 6.5cm. My question is this: is there a load I can work up that will allow to me effectively pick off rabbits and hares at distances of 100yrds or more while still being able to harvest the meat (that's the most important part of all of this). I'm thinking the shock of any 6.5cm load is going to blow that thing up. Anyone with any experience on the subject?Thanks in advance!
