Thumbs up Long Range Plinking

Hi

Just wanted to tell you all about some nice days I had at the range this week.
Usualy I shoot my CZ 452 Varmint .22lr at 50m - 100m (54 - 109 yards), and
I usualy shoot for groups. This week the weather has been quite hot so I felt for
doing something a little easier.

I found a steel plate that is used on railways that i painted and hung up on the range as a gong gong / klonker.



First I fired some rounds at 100m but that was to easy so I moved back to 200m
(218 yards) and continued. It took some rounds to find out what elevation adjustments I had to do
but after that it was quite easy to hit the gong gong 5 out of 5 times when I used PMC Zapper or CCI Standard.

I returned to the range the day after and this time I had a target of a rowdeer
that I use to have at 50 m. I placed that to at 200m.
This time I used some RWS ammunition with std velocity, I adjusted my scope so I didn´t need to hold over, just aim where I wanted to hit.
I fired 5 rounds and went to look at the target. The result is here. (Dont mind the other targets, thats for testing a load in my 30-06 to day.)



Here are some pictures from the shooting place



And here is the steel target seen from 200m. The next one is thru my friends binoculars with me placing some ballons. Very usefull to have a spotter.



This was by far the most fun I have had with a .22lr rifle in a very long time.

Best regards from Sweden.

Nice

I like the binoculars' setup.

I guess the last picture was taken through them. Well done.

Nice forest range that may keep the sound down.

Ah, and the shooting was not bad either...

Velcomen Svenske!

How much trouble is it for you to have a semi-auto in Sweden? I thought the gun laws there were very restrictive except for hunting/bolt action rifles.

Hej Markbo :-)

The laws are restrictive to alla weapons that look military or is manufactured after 1942. Military weapons made befor 1942 are ok...
Semi auto hunting rifles are ok but with limitations in magazin capacity.

Besides that you can have 6 hunting rifles it you have made it thru the "Hunters school / in Swedish "Jägarexamen", just study a cupple of months and shoot some tests at the range.

Is it like the Norske's? Do you have to shoot at running Moose target to get a hunting permit?

Hi

Yes, among other things. There are some theory tests to, one for small game including a lott of things about laws, security, dogs, traditions ethics and so on and one test for big game (In Sweden elk, pigs etc.)


In the practical tests you have to (Besides the running elk/moose test) hit 6 clay pidgeons with a shotgun, get a 5 shot group ounder 5.5" from 87 yards whith field like support, not bench, with a .22lr, pass a weapon handling security test and pass a test in judging distance on 3 flying birds (To see if they are within shotgun range). So it´s quite a lot to pass for be trusted with a hunting rifle.

That is a %%%% fine 200m group amigo! Good shootin', good rifle! (I can only get about 125 to 135 yds at "my" range in the pines, but I'd be happy to shoot a group that tight at that range!) Your "aught six" ain't too shabby either....

Dennis

BTW, long range .22 LR IS fun! I have one of those "silhouette" type things with 3 round 3" "self healing" orange discs hanging down that I like to send my son running off to place at some unknown long range. It is GREAT practice for ground squirrel shooting, estimating the range and hold over.....
