How Far a .22 Bullet Will TravelMy exterior ballistic calculations peg it at 800 yards more or less at an optimum elevation of 30 degrees. I suspect the reason why you see 1.5 miles on a box of 22LR is because SAAMI doubled the safety range just because you never know. At 500 yards there is very little energy left in the bullet but can still put an eye out. Further more as the bullet passes the 500 yard mark velocity will shed at a much faster rate. Those hyper velocity ammunition you see for sale shed velocity much faster than a standard .22LR (i.e.40grain) because there is not very much momentum in a light bullet. The best advice is to not shoot at something unless you know where your bullet will land.
