I usually don't have the correct ammunition for the bonus, but I did today, I broke out the super fine Winchester Wildcat! SO... I figured I'd shoot it in the 'ol Remington (my first .22, now my wife's) to keep things even.

Either you are standing 10' from the plane, or, you have a very fast telephoto.

Approximate distance in this shot was about 500'...

I was using a 100-400mm lens mounted on a Nikon D7500.

Thanks Stan.
I think I paid about $25 for the Nylon 66 back when I was in high school. Remington guaranteed the stock against breakage but like a dumb teenager I was able to break it but Remington stood behind it and sent me a new stock, so I took better care of it since then. It shoots well and is a great plinker. I do think they are appreciating, but there aren't may firearms that aren't.

From an old film photographer, you are getting shots worthy of NGS.

RFC Alias: Ewald
Score: See targets
Class 1, 2, & 3
Rifle: TC 22
Ammo: CMP Eley Bulk
Weather: Indoor Range
Excuses: Guy in the lane next to me was showing off to his girlfriend shooting an AR pistol with a very obnoxious muzzle break.

Today's setup was a test bed.

I had a new Argos Gen 2 BTR 6-24 for a B14R I ordered and picked up yesterday. The scope base and rings are on order for the B14R.

I had an American Defense mount I won at a 3 gun match in 2019 sitting unused. I mounted the Argos to my TC22 using the AD mount.

The AD mount is designed for an AR. The rings are way to high for the TC 22. I built up a cheek rest using pipe insulation.

Rifle note: My TC 22 is a year old. I used it for the the 2021 Steal Challenge season. The iron sites on it leave a lot to be desired in terms of precision shooting. I have wanted to see what it could do. On the test bed it stacked holes with bulk ammo if I did my part.

Scope Note: Lesson number 1: When playing with a scope with an illuminated reticle, remember to turn it off. Lesson number 2: Keep a spare battery in range bag for when you forget lesson #1. Lesson #3: Black cross hairs on a solid black target are challenging.

Cold wet and rainy/snow here this weekend, good time to get to know my new toys
Spent the first day pulling them apart, lightly sanded the stocks oiled and cleaned everything “ boy where they dirty”and back together..

Then spent some time sighting them in and just shooting , getting used to them.. this is the first time I’ve shot a peep sight set up, I’ve got to say I like it, even with my eyes not what they used to be, it’s a lot of fun and works out fairly well…I can see a Rimfire set up like this down the road..

Shot both targets sitting up only supported with my elbow on the arm rest, fun stuff and challenging ,, Irons l&ll targets even though I shot the irons l, like I was supposed to shoot it scoped…in quarters

Irons l & ll. At 28’
155/160 and 90/100
PJ / John
Daisy Avanti 853
AA Diobolo Field 8.4

Can’t wait to play with the scoped avanti to see how it does but from what I can tell they both shoot exceptionally well..

Nice shooting Ewald and John.

How is the trigger on the new toy John? Does it appear the o-rings and felt were changed out by CMP?

I may have to order one.

Jack
