Two guys try to find out how far is a .22LR accurate. How far does a shooter have to be to make the .22 shoot accurately and consistently? Will they be able to conclusively say at the end of the video?

The video is very informative because it showed an actual test being conducted as well as explanations. The guys did say that the experiment is unscientific, since they are not conducting the test in a controlled environment. On this particular day, there was a slight breeze, which can of course affect the shooting accuracy.

They first tried it at 600 yards, and concluded that after 30 rounds and hitting the target only 4 times, the .22 is not consistent and therefore not accurate.

In the video they tested the .22 at 500 yards. It took a few shots for the shooter to adjust to the conditions and hit the target consistently. To take the experiment further, the shooter tried to hit the target two times, and then three times. He was able to and therefore they concluded that at 500 yards the .22 was as accurate as it can be.
