Rifle for Limited class//Pistol ammo



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm looking for a new competitive discipline and a few folks suggested Rimfire Challenge (and also Steel Challenge).

What do I need in a Limited Class rifle? I'm not dragging my Remington 522 Viper out of the safe. I doubt I could even find more mags for it.

I assume I'm at a extreme disadvantage if I ran a bolt gun.

How much accuracy do I need? Do I need a bull barrel?

What kind of sights? Open rear? Military peep style like Tech sights? Some sort of ghost ring setup?

I imagine I'm either going to end up with something based on a 10/22 or an AWB compliant (NJ!) AR-15 .22 like the S&W.

If I went with a 10/22, do standard stocks work or are thumbholes desired? Adjustable combs?

For pistol I have an Advantage Arms kit on a 1911 frame. I have two different spring weights so I can shoot HV (Minimags or Golden Bullets) or Standard velocity match. Which is better? My ammo closet is fairly well stocked right now with everything from Eley Black to Thunderbolts.

Edit: for rifle, what do shooters look for in a trigger? Light? heavy? One stage? Two stage? Do iron sight shooters consider sight radius when choosing a barrel length or mount location (front sight on a hand guard rail)?

Something lightweight with a good trigger and at the utmost, RELIABLE. Majority of limited shooters I see are using a built 10-22 with a TacSol X-ring with fiber optic sights. Some have something with a ghost ring type setup.

Accuracy - need to hit a 10" plate at like 8-30yds. In the end, a stock 10-22 with good sights would work as long as you can shoot 200rds through the thing without it jamming up.

Light trigger, single stage. Kidd single stage, Brimstone job, drop in kits, BX triggers.

Thanks. What kind of buttstock is preferred?

Something not overly heavy, and for a limited gun, something that has a comb that will put you in line with the sights properly.
