The Bloke demonstrates how to shoot quietly for indoor training (or hunting for those of that bent) with a long-barrelled .22 rimfire. Specifically, his Lee-Enfield No.7. Without a silencer / moderator.
Standard velocity .22 rf is already pretty quiet, and needs no hearing protection outdoors out of the 25+ inches of barrel. RWS Z Lang, so-called “Zimmerpatronen”, which recreate the old .22 Long ballistics with smokeless powder and a 29gn bullet are even more so, and 6mm Flobert / .22 BB caps make hardly any noise at all.
The accuracy and the point of impact is not so different for the standard .22’s and the Z Langs at 50m, but the 6mm Floberts have distinctly run out of legs by that point.
An in a future video, we’ll be showing you how to do it with careful handloading of cast bullets and with published load data!!!

Switzerland’s most popular native-English-language guns & shooting channel! Probably. Maybe. I guess. A somewhat off-the-wall and tongue-in-cheek look at firearms, military history and shooting, and a jolly good tilt at the windmills of fuddlore to go with it. And the odd off-topic vid about Switzerland, or whatever happens to take our fancy. We normally launch “in-series” vids on a Friday (early launch on a Wednesday via Patreon and the FB page https://www.facebook.com/Blokeontherange/ ), out-of-series vids launch precisely… whenever.
