Not bad is right. Functionally and optically, the new Leupolds are really good for us rimfire fans, but Leupold is following the market and drinking the tacticool Koolaid, just like everyone else....

In the end, unfortunately, the Freedom version is much less tactical looking than most scopes being marketed today, so maybe I should be more accepting...well, I did buy one, and I actually really...

Mostly an aesthetics issue for me. The Freedom version just has a block-ier, tactical look I don't care for, and the turret knob covers feel very cheap. Optically, I have absolutely no complaints. ...

I'm an all-Leupold man myself but bought one of these Muellers to shoot at 25 yards when the need suddenly arose (this was before I found a Leupold 36 BR D that filled that occasional short-range...

You rechambered a #1 Bee to .222???!!! Could be considered a crime against humanity. I just rebarreled a perfectly delightful Sako L46 .222 to a wildcat basically replicating Bee performance. Maybe...

The Ruger #1 could hardly be described as “chopped liver.” It’s probably the most attractive rifle ever produced by a major manufacturer in the US. The Dakota M10 just has that elusive and hard to...

Most here seem inclined to put as much glass on their .22 field rifles as possible, and, if that flips their respective switches, who am I to object? I actually have tried to champion the use of...

Scope Update

So, after mulling this over for awhile, I have purchased a scope to be mounted permanently on the Dakota. I was about to pull the trigger on a NOS but now-discontinued Leupold FX3 12X. The problem...

Never a sure thing in firearm accuracy, but I think your expectations are more than reasonable, and I would bet you could find ammunition that will shoot into an inch at 50 yards; I wouldn't be as...

Hmmmm. Thanks for the info. I think the turret on that scope is still blocky looking, isn't it?

I'll check it out.

Thanks again

Couldn't agree more on those scopes. I usually prefer gloss, but this Dakota will need a matte scope to look right. I am again left with few options. The current, more recent FX 3 12X has the...

Dakota M10 .218 Bee: Range Report and Refinishing Update

I took the Dakota to the range last weekend, along with the ULA .22 Hornet and my little .22 Tanuki wildcat in a recently re-barreled Sako L-46 (already reported elsewhere on the Tanuki). One goal...

You may have seen my thread on that Dakota, but it was very well worn, something I have never seen on a M10, and the .35 Whelen chambering, added to its worn condition, brought its value down. I got...

Yes, that Dakota is one of my all time favorite rifles, and after rebarreling it to .218 Bee, it will stay with me until I assume room temperature. If you haven’t handled one in person, you just...

A Mixed Bag

Well, I got to the range without incident and was able to shoot the .22 Tanuki for the very first time. First the bad news:

First, it was pretty gusty out, but I really don't think it impacted...

Well, I finally found the time and wherewithal to load up enough .22 Tanuki to make it worthwhile to go to the range today. I settled on loads between 16 and 17 grains of 4198 behind a 50 Nosler BT...

To do it right, a simple bolt head swap likely won't suffice. The required firing pin location is farther out enough to make ignition iffy with a standard rimfire pin location, and the energy from a...

This is my question, as well. A single-shot Vudoo in 17 WSM would put me over the top. Not familiar with Zermatt. I guess I'll check it out.
