I shot this today at 350 yards. The wind was pretty blustery. I held anywhere from dead on to a full MIL off for the wind. I learn something every time I shoot.

Not much joy yesterday. It was 36 degrees and blustery. Wind was whipping all over the place. I had 14 hits out of 20 shots. Vudoo and SK Pistol Match. I had decent hits at 200 and 250. It went downhill after that.

Verticle spread looks good, sometimes you can't keep up with Mother Nature. Days like that if I shoot a few and elevation looks good but miss due to wind, the number is right and I move on. Do that alot at Rayners, no need to waste ammo. I've been shooting some Biathalon in my 40X getting it ready for ELR and seems to like it. Certainly not up to V-gun standards but might do OK for an antique. 😉

Only a couple more months till matches.

I'm waiting anxiously.

That was with SK Pistol Match. I gotten some of my best 50 yard groups with it. I've used it at your matches with good results also. I've got a brick and a half left.

I've noticed several people using SK Biathlon. It shoots a little faster.

I'm still learning how to shoot. Consistency is a problem with me.

I had a pretty calm day yesterday. 2-3 MPH or so. I shot 50 rounds at each 350 yard target using 2 different lots of SK Biathlon. I used my Vudoo with a Night Force 7-35 scope. The IPSC A/C target has all 50 hits. The Pepper Popper has 4 or 5 misses plus 3 low hits outside the group.

Here's a somewhat relevant data point to add to the discussion...

Yesterday I hosted a precision rimfire match called The King Of point-2 Miles (KO.2M) just west of Houston, Texas. There were five stages, with distances of 102, 214, 282, 300, and 356 yards. (0.2 miles is 352 yards, but I tacked on the few extra yards to say we shot "over" .2 miles, lol)

The target at both 300 and 356 yards was a 12"x12" steel square. 300 was fired off the hood of a Chevy pickup and 356 was prone with bag & bipod. Ten shots per shooter, per stage.

We had 17 shooters firing 13 different rifles (some shared) and an undocumented but expected variety of ammo.

At 300 yards, with 170 bullets flung downrange we saw 98 impacts on target.

At 356 yards, of 170 shots fired, there were 69 hits. Everybody made at least one hit. The best show was a young lady firing a Ruger RPR with a Vortex Gen 2 Razor, she went 10/10. The next best performance was 7 hits, achieved by two CZ 455's and one Bergara. Another CZ made 6 hits. The one fella with a Vudoo only made three hits.

Fun stuff!

Yes, fun stuff. I need to move my target back a little.

I think I can get back to 365 or 370 before I get too close to the top of the hill.

Another 50 at 350 with a twist. 2 different kinds of ammo at 2 different targets. I started with the IPSC target and fired the first 10 rounds while adjusting for windage and elevation. Then the next 20 or so rounds went into a group on the right side of the target that was about 5" by 5". I was happy with that. It was SK Biathlon lot # 0863. I got a case of it early last year before the shortage started. Probably none left anywhere.

Then I adjusted elevation a little and shot SK Pistol Match at the Pepper Popper. That group was 4.5" wide by 14.5" tall.

It was a nice day. Very little wind or mirage. About 75*.

Thanks.

I think it was about 53 to 55 MOA up from my 50 yard zero.

Thanks Bill,
took a bit of work to get the mount right so I could dial in 50+ MOA from a 50 yard zero. Ran a ladder test and then after a few sessions without help finally got a spotter so I could try out to the 389(Aprox) Buffalo on our club range.

Very satisfying to see a rimfire out that far.
CZ 457 MTR, Burris 4.5x14, Eley Match 22lr.
Dialed in the 54 MOA and held top of the hump.
Not 50 or even 30 shots. BUT just happy to hit the target at that range.
Large splats were from a 308 that was on the range at the same time using Iron Sights.

Its guys like you and Jala that are bringing more fun to range days. Thanks for both of your projects.

I think we sent three five round mags of the Eley Match, and then a few of some new CCI standard. I spotted for the Eley with a 60x scope and could call the hits in the white and some of the orange, and definitely the dirt hits off target. But I shot the CCI and could not call those in the scope and do not know if any of the CCI hit the white.
Next trip I plan on bringing some Big Cardboard and fresh paint to get the real story on where the rounds are going at that distance. Its a long way to walk down and back. So checking and marking shots is not conducive if other guys are shooting short range berms at the same time.
Honestly I am still in awe that we hit the target at all based on past 22 lr shooting with less effective scope/rifle/bag rest combos at longer range.
Bob

Short answer..... Heck Yea!! This Bolt Rimfire is a Blast.

Long Answer.....

Bill,
I thought today was going to be perfect when I woke up, but by 9 when we can use the range the wind was up. Windiest day I have shot this rimfire.
But in the name of science I proceeded to set up for 389(?,, not lasered, but not quite 400 according to the guys who run the range)

I brought some big cardboard and was worried it would not be enough with the wind condition. (Im no expert on a rifle).

Painted a 12 x 12 white box and added some tape to hold the cross hairs on.



Shot a small warm up check with some CCI SV at 50 yards to confirm zero. This CZ MTR always seems to throw the cold bore shot. I don't clean it between sessions, but may start, to see if that can be remedied.
I then shot 5 Eley Match rounds to "Season the bore" at 50.



Next I dialed in 60 MOA on the Burris set at 14x. Holding on the tape cross I sent three 5 round magazines of the Eley Match 40 gr flat nose down the field. I definitely saw the cross hair finish the recoil cycle up and right each time. I Want to try a parallel bag rider attached to the rear of the MTR stock to mitigate that.

To my surprise all 15 rounds were on the target frame. The spread measured about 16" vertical and about 14" across. But even more surprising was that the group was about center. I expected much more Wind effect. 64 MOA should put it on the hold point.





On the walk back ran into another long range aficianado doing some testing. (Thats 1 1/4" stone for all you that like to measure stuff)



Next, to give a feel for the shooter limitations with this experiment, I sent 15 rounds of the Eley into a single target at 50 yards. The first shot after dialing back the 60 MOA landed to the left. All the others went in tighter.
Cross wind on the flag just in front of the bench.



Mandatory rifle pic for Jala.



If you have the range room, RimFIre at distance is very entertaining.
