Pretty much accurate.....we are still talking " survival " right ? Not sport hunting, because in a survival situation I really don't care if if it takes 2 hours for the critter to die just as long as I can retrive it , plus I'veI seen neck shot deer go down fast with a poacher using 22 lr ( used to help game wardens bust them ) So I know that 22 lr can kill large game ...I'm not repeating what I read or heard I've seen it....plus were talking survival.....not sport hunting.
