2013 Ultimate 10/22 Contest Rules:


NOTICE: Voting through multiple usernames using a proxy server is against contest AND RFC rules and can result in a member being permanently banned from the contest and from RFC.



ELIGIBILITY and PRIZES

MEMBERS- PAST, PRESENT, ACTIVE, INACTIVE, or PASSED AWAY, are ALL ELIGIBLE.
RIFLES that are BUILT BY MEMBERS and sold to NON MEMBERS are ELIGIBLE for the BUILDER to receive prizes.
RIFLES built by NON MEMBERS and bought by MEMBERS are ELIGIBLE.

If you NOMINATE a RIFLE, the CURRENT OWNER is first in line for prizes.
If the OWNER is unavailable, prizes revert to the BUILDER.
IF BOTH the OWNER and BUILDER are UNAVAILABLE, prizes go to the NOMINATING MEMBER.

ALL RULES REGARDING MEMBER STATUS APPLY.


Ultimate Build Characteristics- These are the areas to be considered when judging rifles and casting your votes:

Originality: Is there anything unique/different about the build?

Material Quality: Simple- what components and materials- Fit & Finish.

Execution: How well does it function? Is it thrown together, or did the builder pay attention to detail, such as paint/polish/customization/ergonomic adaptation

Accuracy: we need a standard. I propose MOA to 50 for scoped rigs as a minimum, and either 2 or 3 MOA to 25 or 50 for iron sight rigs as a minimum.

Artistic Impression: that overall X factor that makes a rifle cool-

Personally, I want this contest to be INCLUSIVE, not EXCLUSIVE.

That means builds that are exceptional, for whatever reason, have a shot.

BR, Tactical, Offhand Custom, Superstock, OEM- ANY 10-22 Variant should be considered.

It might be incredibly beautiful, with no submitted targets.

It might be a hand built, full custom, that looks better than it shoots.

It might be comprised of all aftermarket parts, but was assembled, tuned, bedded maybe refinished and has the targets to prove the work behind it.

It might be a Tactical, well thought out with all the right parts and purpose built.

It might be a plain Jane 10-22 that shoots incredible bug holes and is in pristine condition.

It might be one of the early serial numbers- unfired, NIB, representing our origins.

Leave it to the members to vote and decide.


Tell us about our rifle. Everything you can- and post pictures. I cannot stress this enough, good quality pictures will likely make or break some entries in this contest.
You CAN post a link to another thread, if appropriate, or to your own or another members rifle in one of the picture threads.

PLEASE POST A BIO, BUILD SPECS, TARGETS AND PHOTOS IN THE SUBMISSION THREAD! You may also wish to post a link to the original build thread, if applicable.

IF MEMBERS DON'T SEE IT, YOUR RIFLE WILL NOT CAPTURE ATTENTION AND VOTES!

Submissions/nominations will be accepted from 12/1-12/10

There will be a PRELIMINARY VOTE held from 12/10-12/20 to narrow the field to THREE FINALISTS. MEMBERS will be allowed to cast THREE votes in the preliminary poll to vote for the rifles they consider to be the top three.

The final vote will be in blind poll form, held from 12/20-12/30.

RFC MEMBERS who are INTERESTED in having a contest run in another forum, OTHER THAN Ruger 10-22s, please PM or email me and we will look into expanding this into other areas of RFC in the coming months or in 2014.

Contestants: PLEASE NOTE -posting vote requests for your entries on the forum is against contest rules.

Respectfully,

DrGunner

It has been renominated twice since July, I declined both times because it had its shot and took third in July (ironically, the only month with no third place prizes) nothing had changed. Now that it will be in its own, full custom stock it's a different platform and deserves another vote. I plan on starting the bedding process tonight by installing the front pillar and escutcheon. I posted a thread on it with pics poached from your stock thread, in Ultimates entitled E-L-K Version 2.0

Thanks again for helping me realize my vision by making the awesome BR Eliminator stock for me- Azguy, You are a ROCKSTAR!!!!

I will gladly accept the nomination. Hopefully we will get some weather UP in the 40s before the final vote so I can at least shoot some 25 yard groups with it in the new lumber

Warmest Regards,

DrGunner

Thanks, Buddy.

I finished the bedding and got it to the range today. I shot the vaunted "4-Z" card, a feat I have tried to accomplish for over 3 years.
(Four 5 shot groups under .1"@ 25yards)

FAT BOY:

Revolution Eliminator stock in "Timber" color, with custom forend, rear coffin bottom buttstock and custom buttplate masterfully done by Azguy.
Pillar and Devcon bedded
1" Bronze Ruger eagle medallion countersunk into bottom of pistol grip
Bisley adjustable butt plate
1/4-20 takedown screw
Kidd Classic black rcvr with rear tang 20 MOA rail
Lilja 21" Stainless Match barrel, floated
Kidd receiver pins and buffer
Kidd silver scalloped bolt
Kidd 2 stage trigger w/straight red trigger, 3oz/5oz, custom skullie mag release and charging handle by Chaser
Scope: Mueller 8-32x44 Side Focus target scope on Leupold QRW rings, low


LINK to the BUILD THREAD:

https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums...d.php?t=527301














25 yard target, 5 shots per group:




Measured with OnTarget by Bill40718
3 group AVG= .074"
4 group AVG= .081"




Measured with OnTarget by Dr Heckel
3 group AVG= .071"
4 group AVG= .077"




Measured with OnTarget by Ron 1738
3 group AVG= .077"
4 group AVG= .083"




Measured with OnTarget by philoshop

Edit- I was just made aware that philoshop used a reference measurement from my target that was short because I cut off the line in the photograph I sent. This was caught by Uber Target Meister Bill40718, and philoshop remeasured the card. His revised numbers are:

3 group AVG= .070"
4 group AVG= .076"




So, I took my OFFICIAL SCORE to be the average of the Target Meister's findings:

3 Group AVG: .073"
4 Group AVG: .079"


MY THANKS to our Target Meisters for their selfless volunteer commitment to keeping the scoring of these games fair and equitable for all of us!!!!

Warmest Regards,

DrGunner

Groovie

I joined the RFC forum earlier this year. Like a lot of you, I had been a life long shooter and hunter.

Shortly after I joined, I was struck with 10/22itis. My love of the carbines and sporters was fed from the rifles I saw posted in the super stock forum. I had a birch 10/22 carbine that sent many thousands of rounds down range. It didn't stay stock for long.

A short while later, a fellow member offered his Tuck replica finger groove stock for sale on the tpc. I grabbed it, added a polished receiver, Que bolt, 19"GMHT, a SwampFox Trigger, and a Mueller APV. All very appropriate for a super stock.


The rifle was immediately my best shooter. The first change was to add the Kidd single stage set at 1.5#.




I was in progress with a few other builds at the same time so this one sat for a while. By this time, I wanted to shoot my carbines and other sporters at a level that would be competitive with the ultimate rifles. I started hanging around and reading the ultimate forum and applying the things I learned to my super stocks. DrGunner was a huge influence. His bedding techniques and the Gunner cleaning tools along with lots of practice started to show gains.

I bought a used 18" polished Kidd .920 and bolted it on.




I have developed friendships with several members along the way. With some coaching on bench techique, more gains were being realized. At one point I was loaned a Mueller 8x32x44 to try for a while. I think I kept it for over a month.





This last card was for a short time, the leader on the 25yd MOA game. The rifle was getting better and better but I still couldn't get it on the board at 50yds. One day I shot this card but noticed that I had forgotten to shoot the sizers. Who can forget this one?



Well, like before, I got distracted and started working on other builds. Some have far exceeded the performance of the 2.0 version at the 50yd bench.

I figured I'd just post this.... had some fun today at the range using SK Std+... I am actually pretty surprised the difference was noticeable ... anyways... I am twitchy so it didn't matter too much...

My rifle is a ruger receiver bolt and trigger assembly (which will be swapped out for better [all but receiver]) Kidd 16.5 Fluted Bead Blasted Barrel, Hogue OM, Caldwell Bipod, and Mueller APV 4.5-14 x 40 w/ a couple sunshades on there...

Rifle Name- "Justice"
Owner- Jackalope33B
Builder- Jackalope33B


Here we have a KIDD build. Currently, it has a 18" KIDD bull barrel topped off with a YHM Mite Suppressor. The 2 Stage KIDD trigger is set at 8/8 and breaks nicely. KIDD receiver houses the "scalloped" KIDD bolt and buffer. Optics is the Vortex Rimfire 2-7x32 scope with the Vortex anit cant bubble. Glass is crystal clear and tracks perfectly.
Holding this beast up is a Atlas V8 bipod. Stock is a Revolution Talon in Fire/Ice

She shoots CCI Standards like a dream!
