I have a 17HMR MPR and it is the best out-of-the-box rifle I've ever owned. It has the best trigger, a crisp 1.5 lbs and is the most accurate of the three 17HMRs I've owned. I'm betting the .22s...

And after all it's about having fun isn't it? Watching a tin can hop along in front of you is lots of fun. I do the same thing with whatever floats down the creek near my niece's house. I sit on...

Just shot some yesterday along side some Norma Tac-22 in my Mauser 201. The Norma won by a mile. The HV produced 1.25" groups compared to .5" groups from the Norma. Glad I only had one box of the...

You can now buy .22 Short HPs for about 20 cents per round and the ydo a great job. But, if cheap is your top priority, CCI SV has recently cost me 6 cents and I've killed 100s of prairie dogs with...

When I was a young kid around 10-12 years old, I was puzzled as to why older guys couldn't hit a squirrel in the top of a 40-50 ft oak tree with open sights. It seemed easy to me. Of course, the...

I'm afraid that is going to be the story for M2 ammo in general. I have an Anschutz 1502. Good squirrel round, but misses too many head shots. After shooting every M2 ammo available, including...

I'll say the heavy barrel is your best bet. The added weight makes it easier to shoot consistently from the bench. After reading 100s of posts on this issue, sport barrels appear to shoot just as...

We usually buy a gun, then search for ammo that shoots best. With the Mach2, it seems we have to buy the ammo, then search for the rifle that will shoot it.
