Too bad you couldn't post 4 of those itty-bitty groups. Some of the previous targets have been erased, but that might have been close to a record. Great shooting!

Okay, I took the Winchester Wildcat Varmint model out for it's 2nd day at the range. I just got this rifle two days ago so I am happy with my progress with it. The rifle has no modifications and only the trigger has been adjusted down and greased (still at 3 pounds though). This morning the range conditions were just a slight breeze and cold (for Florida) so I thought I might be able to squeeze in. The rifle shot a 7 group aggregate of .366 so it is a shooter.
I am convinced it will do better once I get some more time on it. My average for the 4 groups was a 9.22 mm. I used SK standard Plus ammo. Sorry for the picture but it was raining outside so this is one of it indoors.

The submission.



The rifle

The rifle is stock with the addition of a set of Burris rimfire signature rings holding a Nikon 6-18x scope.

That is a fantastic shooting with a varmint Winchester Wildcat. If they all shoot that well, I am sure they will be on a bunch of RFC'rs Christmas list. Very good shooting, your name is added to the list. Congrats!

Another entry

I took my Marlin 17VS to the range today and shot the target below. It was my second sheet as the first group of 4 I pulled one shot. Six of the 8 groups were sub .400 so the gun is consistent for about 100 rounds or so before it needs cleaning.

The target. A 9.35mm average



The rifle.



It is a Marlin 17Vs with a Rifle Basix trigger and a Nikon 4.5-14x scope. I used Hornady 17 grain V-max ammo. It is one of my favorite rifles and a variable wind of 5-10 mph did not affect it much at 50 yards. I was very happy with how it shot in the wind.

Marlin 17VS

Congrats AGAIN!! You have been hanging around at the range, I see. Great shooting and keep up the range time. Those Marlin .17's can shoot. You have been added to the list. Keep up the fine shooting and once again, congrats!

Thanks and yes I have been at the range a lot lately. The conditions have been pretty good most days and there are many contests to try to qualify for. This rifle makes things too easy as it has made each contest either the first day or second day of shooting it. The only contender so far for being a great gun for me is the Winchester Wildcat I own.
I have plans to keep you busy. Many guns to make the list yet.

Remington time

I shot my Remington 540 XR today at the range and it was shooting very well. I was cold but the wind was light most of the time so I gave it a go. I shot a 7.70 mm average for 4, 4 shot groups. I used SK standard plus ammo and the rifle has a Bausch & Lomb 6-24x scope mounted in Burris signature rimfire rings.

The target



The rifle



I almost made this game with my CZ 452 but I had one flier so one of the groups was too large. Next time I'll get it in. Thanks for running the game.

Almost

I gave it a try today but I had trouble working the bolt due to an injured right palm from training. It hurt everytime I worked the bolt and my palm was 50% larger when I finished at the range. If only I could get swollen biceps.
I am fairly certain it will make it next time. I am almost out of CCI greentag so I will have to try something else. I thought I would post the target though as a couple of the groups were quite small. This one may be more accurate than it's heavy barrel brother.
The scope is a Millett 4-16x AO in BKL rings.

This target did not qualify as one group is too large. Yes, I know I need sighters for the official posting but I could see the one group was too big.

The target, 4 shots at 50 yards per group. Overall average was 9.93 mm.



The rifle. It is a Russian Toz 78-01 with no mods or adjustments.

Not bad, not bad at all. Looks as though the Toz 78-01 is showing great promise. Have your tried any other target ammo? Box stock? Not even a pressure pad? Very good! Keep trying, I am sure the Toz will come around to your way of thinking.

Humble submission

I slept in and in the hurry to get to the range before the wind starts blowing I forgot the CCI greentag. Crud, well it made it with the RWS target rifle but I think it will do better with the greentag. Oh well. I shot this with the Russian Toz 78-01 from 2 posts earlier.

The target, a 10.2 mm submission.



Thanks for running the game.

Considering I paid over 2x that for my light colored wood version I would buy it so fast you would think I was just a blur. They are supposed to come with 4 magazines so you may want to verify that. They are apparently fitted to each rifle at the factory as my two Russians magazines are not interchangeable.
Also keep in the mind the dovetail is 11mm. I used BKL rings on mine and they haven't moved yet.
