My ES340B absolutely loves shorts,,,

Log in to see fewer ads
I finally got to make a trip to the range last Sunday,,,
So I decided to just turn money into noise.

I took all of the odd boxes of .22 I had accumulated,,,
The rifle I took was my Mauser ES340B.

I wasn't trying for super tight groups,,,
I was just plinking away at some tin cans full of sand.

Imagine my surprise when the best accuracy was with some Remington .22 Shorts.

At 50 yards I was lobbing the bullets on target,,,
But I also hit 23 out of 23 shots,,,
I only had a partial box.

Nothing earth shattering here,,,
Just commenting on something I noticed.

I tried shorts in my MS 420B. They would not feed from the magazine, and hand feeding them was a pain.

But the ES is single shot so you just throw them in the gate on the feed ramp and close the bolt.
