If anyone wants to use a coat of ‘easy and consistent’ bullet lube like you are doing go to the farm supply and get a can of Udder Balm.
Good as bullet lube and for chapped lips, wounds, etc.

My paraffin and 2 stroke oil is only used on non lubricated 22 lr.
A dab on the paper towel is all that's needed for 50 shots.
Wipe the bullet on the spot of lube, then load and fire.
Minimal application, no globs or clumps.
No lead build up or copper from the plated bullets left in the bore, easy cleaning after.

Udder Balm works the same way. And if used on different brands of ammo maintains a consistent bore/lube condition (yours does too); this is a secret so dont tell anybody.....
Btw, what 22rf ammo is unlubed?

Most of the high velocity 22lr.
Automatch is straight lead and the others are copper plated.

I have been under the impression for decades that the plain lead bullets have a hard ‘waxy’ lube coating and that even the copper wash plated bullets do also.

If they are, it doesn't do the job.
Without the extra homemade lube, I end up with deposits in the rifling.
I take the additional step to minimize my after shooting cleaning.

Tried 50 at 200 this morning. 78 degrees with 3 to 4 mph wind right to left. Looking straight east into the sun so a little hard to see the target. Target is same size as
SR 42 C. I don't have a chronograph so no speeds available. Ammo is Federal Gold Medal Ultra Match UM22.

Lion, 4.5x4.5 inch spread is about as good as I've seen with 22lr at 200 yards.
50 shots doesn't allow for any cherry picking. Standard deviation is fine
for statistical analysis, but at 200 yards the ES defines the results.

Gorgeous rig...a bit envious on this side of the keyboard.

Geeze Wayne, why can't you dial up those 3 to 4 mph winds when I've shot the State Championships up there the last two years! LOL

Landy, do tuners need to be adjusted to fit distance?
Only folks I know that use 'em shoot 50 yards.
They set 'em and forget 'em.

If you subscribe to positive barrel compensation, the answer is yes. It's not a lot different than ladder testing in CF at specified distances to find where changes in powder charges cause the least amount of change in vertical POI.

With RFBR at 50 yds/meters you gain very little with compensation because we're shooting match ammo with Standard Deviations in the range of 5 fps to 7 fps, but if I was trying to shoot at 100 yds and longer, I would attempt to achieve positive compensation at the specific distance I was interested in.

A word of caution. I've never found it as easy to tune a RF rifle as most would suggest it is. Fact is, I've yet to test a rifle in my ballistic tunnel that was truly tuned even when someone brings a rifle and is convinced it's tuned.

I don't know what the percentages are, but there are a lot of guys who set and forget and also a lot of guys who are constantly fiddling with the tuner.

When it comes to tuners I'm a set it and forget type. I tune it at 50 yards and if it doesn't work at 200 I blame the ammo and try a different lot # or brand.

Landy; I got lucky with the wind. This afternoon it's back up to its normal 15 mph. Going to be fun shooting ARA this evening. Oh well, if I can agg 1700 I'll be happy.

Iron sights with lever gun at 200y.

12 " round gong. Shot a couple of rounds over the top before adjusting the elevation to the sweet spot.

Looks good, pretty darn good looking target. Toss out a couple lows probably due to bad rounds and you have a nice grouping. I love peep sights but wish I'd done more of it back when I had good eyes. Soon as I get this Country Music event that is being held on property located behind me and they all leave I'll give the peep sight challenge a go.
