Pick up 2 bricks of Remington Premier .22WMR

My 597 with standard barrel loves these rounds. All 10 shots inside the bullseye at 50 yards. Nice tight group too.


I'm pretty happy to find these available again. Got mine at SGA ammo.

93R17 GLV: It's now accurate and reliable

Making this rifle reliable and accurate has been a real journey. Besides having every know reliability problem it also wouldn't group under 2.5 inches @ 50 yards. The rifle will now consistently...

Remington Target (standard velocity) is rated at 1150 fps. They are subsonic out of my 10/22 TD rifle. A plastic box of 100 cost me less than 5 bucks.

Do recrown your 93R17... its worth it!

My GLV was shooting 2 - 2 1/2" random spreads at 70 yards. Sent it to Jim Pixley and had him cut the barrel to 20 inches and thread for a suppressor. I now get a perfectly defined star pattern on...

Sunset - the rifle you speak of already exists. The Ruger Mini-14 is about as close as you can get to the form factor of the Reming 597.

retiredsquid - .204 on the AR platform makes for a good varmint getter. You'll have fun with it. I too built myself and AR in 6.8 SPC. I used a Bison armory barrel and hand load for it. Doesn't...

If you like the 597 in .22 WMR, then you would love an AR in .204 Ruger. .22 caliber @ 4200 FPS. I built one on the AR platform and it's a hoot! I also built a .223 Wylde in a 20" SPR and 16"...

I feel your pain. The prices today are nuts! I'm pretty sure when I bought mine, many years ago, I paid $259 - 269.00 and remember thinking that was a lot money for a .22 caliber rim fire.

I just came in from my range. The good news is the rifle will shoot sub-MOA @ 100 yards much more consistently - love the Volquartsen trigger. The bad news is I've got some stock relieving/bedding...
