1. The 'peripheral near miss' that hit the squirrel (but didnt kill it) clean came from another hunter. He took a shot with a .22 at another animal last week but as we all know, it can take a few days for a .22 to cover 25 yards. That shot was just bad luck for Eddie's squirrel.
2. The .22 pellet that Eddie discharged is still in flight.
3. I cant believe I have just started a "Which is better? .22 or .177 debate"

Not through head shots.
I shoot an awful lot of Greys.
Calibre is irrelevant. On the feeder I mentioned I have shot 70 odd in the last two months without a miss.
Whats important is not where you put the pellet in but that it exits through the brain.
