I'd of enjoyed trying those consistent hi v you have at 200 yards,
just to compare to the match SV 22lr.
I like guns, I really like 22's, and I love shooting them. I have spent thousands on 22 ammo. At one point I shot over 25 different rifles using over 30 different brands and types of ammo. I don't remember exactly as I forgot the exact number of rifles and types of ammo. I have it all written down and charted. But what I got from it all is Remington barrels give a faster velocity and Remington barrels gave the best groups. So I sold all my other target rifles and focused on Remington. I have owned or own 6 40X's and 4 Springfield M2's. I dearly love the M2, By far the highest quality 22 I have ever handled and shot. Some may see it as a Armoury Trainer. I see it as a rifle that I can shoot with the factory receiver sights and hit 3/8" twigs at 50 yards with the sun behind me of course. I can hit the twigs 50% of the time. All my other 22's have to have scopes on them these days.

My first 22 I messed with was a Remington 510 barreled action I paid $7.50 for at a gun show when I was still in school. I carved out a stock for it. I drilled and tapped it for a scope and I spent the summer shooting Win. Super X ammo at prairie dogs at 200 yards. Toward the end of the summer I was hitting a prairie dog with every third shot. No one told me it can't be done so I went and did it.

I shot my first buck with a Wards Western Field 22 at 35 ft. using CCI mini mag HP ammo. He ran 40 yards and dropped. I admit I was lucky I didn't hit a rib going in. That was 50 years ago.

I hope to shoot at least another 20 years before I move on to the next world.
