$4.50 a box is what I paid at Walmart. I had so many people ask me if I knew they were shorts and probably wouldn't cycle in my rifle. I said they did and the people didn't believe me until I showed them a picture of the markings.You got lucky finding shorts at most any price. Rem shorts in my experience are more accurate and way more reliable than their bigger cousins the "Golden 22s"
Yep,no problem killing a crow a that range.I've never fired them, always shot long rifle. Would they have enough energy at 25-30 yards to kill a crow? I'll be crow hunting next season and they tend to be in the spot before we can set up. Anyone who's hunted them knows you're pretty much busted if they see you.
25 yards is what I like to keep my shots limited to.CCI HV 22S HP shoot similarly to 22LR SV in my experience. At least at 25 yards. I think the main limitation will be accuracy out of a 22LR chamber. My Mossberg 340 BD groups CCI 22S CBs about twice as large as 22LR SV. The drop from 25 to 50 yards is striking for the CBs.
