Please quote your source on this.

A .22 Short did kill the biggest griz ever taken in one of the Canadian provinces - Alberta IIRC.

My take-aways are:

1) More than 99.99% of rimfire failures to fire are due to poor FP hits - NOT due an absence of priming mix in the rim.

2) Good FP shaping is always going to be a custom...

Change the word "accuracy" to "reliability", and you perfectly described my situation. I had even redesigned (and rebuilt) my Ruger mark pistol to be completely frictionless. And yet there were still...

I've seen a few postimage posts. I like them less than the photobucket posts. The postimage pics show up as a little black box with a white 'X' in it. That's because postimage requires you to have...

It varies bolt to bolt. Ruger gave an adequate chamfer on some, and others cut a little lead. Mild denting isn't a problem, but shaving is. It doesn't take much rounding of that edge to fix the...

How are you planning to aim?

It sounds like this ammo left the factory after missing the lube process. This will cause leading even in the smoothest barrels.

If it were my problem, I think I'd go to the black powder section...

This IS a new bolt. Never been fired except possibly for a factory function check.

Adding Metal?

I hate the way Ruger cuts rim pockets into bolts at the very extreme upper end of SAAMI head space. Combined with their free floating extractor design (as opposed to a fixed pivot), they beg for...

Magazine play = feeding problems.

Your formula for 20 MOA is correct, but your suggestion for 1 MOA is not.

1 MOA = 1/3600 = .00028"

So divide your desired MOA change by 3600 and multiply by ring spacing to get the needed shim...
