    .22 LR for Zombie Killing

    What is everyones take on the .22LR for Zombie killing? The Stereotypical Zombie can only be killed by trauma to the head and most stereotypical zombies are in some sort of a decayed state. Would the .22LR round be a good option for Zombie defense? Its very cheap and accurate with the right rifle.

    This is just for fun and if its already posted elsewhere or if this is in the wrong place I am sorry!

    Just took a class with a former Navy SEAL. During one of the breaks he was looking at .22LR rifles. He picked one up and said this was his perfect Zombie rifle. It had a bull barrel and a 3x9 scope. I asked why and he said it was easy to use, deadly, easy to get ammo and easy to adapt for a homemade suppressor.

    That's good enough for me.

    What we need is for some ammo maker to come out with hardball ammo for 22 rim fires. Something that would reliably penetrate the skull bone.

    Semi auto .22 rifle with more than 10 round capacity. Im looking for a good 3-9x40 scope for my model 60.

    My backyard is all barbed wire fencing then cow pastures. I live on a dead end street. I would just sit up on the roof with a few boxes of federal 550 bulk packs. Head shots all day.

    I have long said that an integrally suppressed .22 with good, large capacity magazines would be the ultimate zombie killer. A 10/22 would be hard to beat in this capacity, though there are others that would do equally well.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    The .22 LR most definitely has its place in the zombie repellent kit.

    I used to drop ground squirrels at 100 yards with .22 shorts when I lived in WA state. Zombies would be no problem.
