Response to Some more 1377 to .22 conversion velocity numbers

Well, I have to say I am pleased with the new-found critter stopping power of my converted .22 cal rig here. Nabbed 3 tree rats over the past weekend, farthest out to about 22 yards with a head shot, and found the stopping power to be immediate. No more runaways like I was experiencing with the .177 gun. I have to say, I have always been a big subscriber to the "placement, not power" school of thought, but in a sub-800fps gun, .177 just doesn't seem to cut the mustard on tough tree rats.
