I was wondering if you can shoot the v-max bullet in tubular fed magazines? My 22 mag. is a 9422 winchester. I had to use it last night with some coon action and noticed I am out of ammo for it. did scrounge around and find some ammo. Also I was quite suprised how accurate it is. I shot it today @ 50 yards and it shot 5/8" groups . Anyway curious about those v-max bullets.

I think it would work fine. Those poly tips are pretty tough. It's not like you would have to worry about a out of battery discharge.

Should be fine since they are rimfire and that pointy end will be hitting it in the middle of the case. :roflmao3[1]:

It's nice to pull out some guns you haven't shot in awhile.

My 77/22mag was my pickup gun for many years. Killed a lot of critters with it, still do but haven't shot it much lately.
