Remington Model 5



Log in to see fewer ads
My RFC friends, it's been a long rough road. But the Remington Model 5 has arrived, and now looking back, it seems so simple. Wearing a CerterPoint 4-16 AO, using SK+, MTM Predator rest, I finally found the formula to get it to shoot groups I am proud to post. I just knew it had the "right stuff", I finally stumbled on the right few "things" to get some very repeatable groups. I can't tell you how absolutely overjoyed I am about the results. I would like to thank everyone in the Remington thread who helped me along the way.

With the smallest group at .257", and the overall average of 8.49MM, I am, without a doubt, a happy RFC-r! AH

Good job, AH !!

I was fortunate enough to have a good range-day yesterday and 3x nailed the "Sawdust Challenge"

Still need some more practice, but thinking that this 13mm challenge would be quite a fun thing - so watch yr backs, you guys.. there might be a new cow on the block sometime soon!

Nice model 5, BTW... I was --->THIS<--- close to buying a Z5 earlier this year, but ended up with a Czech instead of a Serb..

It sure was fun shooting those groups. Glad to share my information on getting this rifle in da "Club". lol! If you have a Model 5, you might be interested in this:

https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums...d.php?t=361682

I was really surprised to see how well it shot, if the truth be known. I was expecting to just barely get in the club, but this rifle has made me smile.

As always, an honor to have posted a rifle here. Major accomplishments, it seems, are sometimes measured in millimeters .... AH

Hey folks...

It's May 21st and the world didn't end (at least here in the Pac NW)

It was however a cool and showery day, but the range was calling so went and tried to shoot. My rifle seems to be quite temperature sensitive and wanted to throw flyers at just the wrong times, no matter what ammo I was using today.

...52 degrees, light wind, light showers... and a 13mm entry


Shot with CZ452 Special/Trainer (#1)

Today was one of "THOSE" days.. I had to work my way DOWN the ammo food-chain till I found one that worked. Ended up shooting this with Fed Automatch AM-22. Everything else in the range bag is much happier if the temp is mid 60s or better.

I really really wanted to get this one done since I see that slot #54 looks unfilled and it conveniently matches my number

Here's to the games.. I'm having fun with them



...cows... at the range!

(oops, almost forgot the rifle):

COW 54 - Looks like a fun day at the range! Congratz! You are now officially listed with a fine group of accomplished shooters. Welcome to da "Club". A fine looking CZ, and made it with Federal AutoMatch, no less. Wow! That within itself is an accomplishment. Heck yea! That cool weather can play some funny tricks on even the finest ammo, glad you found one that was "cool weather friendly". That scope ........ Fantastic!!!!

Glad to have you aboard, COW 54 !!!

LOL!!

Heck yeah, I'll go

Out here in WA, we have probably a 1/2 dozen full blown casinos within 30 mins of me, but I must say that they REALLY know how to treat you right in Vegas! You can go for a week, lose all your cash the first day and STILL come away from there feeling good!

It was quite the range day yesterday... trying to take care of business before the scheduled end of everything as we know it, (fortunately delayed yet again to an unspecified time slot), and burned up a lot of ammo trying for this one. No matter what ammo from SK match on down, they all wanted to throw a wild flyer every 8 or 9 shots just to tick me off. Seems like that happens when it's less than 55 degrees out there... 60 degrees or better and everything works the way it's supposed to!

I just had to work this one out, since I'd noticed that #54 position had not been filled and thought it would be really nice to be client #54 in the game

All in all, even though it was more ammo-intensive than expected, it was a lot of fun!

Thanks Ammohog for keeping this one going



...cows ....need to order more ammo!

Stumbled on this thread and was out getting some numbers on some new glass so I thought I'd play...

Anyone in Texas for the last few months knows how windy it is right now so I am sure if I broke out the flags and a calmish morning the groups would
tighten up a bit. It was 15-20 mph gusting and random when I was shooting this afternoon.

Anywho.... Marlin 2000, Eley Club, 50 yards, 4 for size and 4 - 5 round bulls, yes the lower right is 5 rounds .... 11.13mm

Cedestech - Congratz! Your name has been added to the list of accomplished shooters! Considering the wind, those are some really good groups. This is the first bolt action Marlin .22 rifle to EVER make da "Club". Very Good. !!! You should be proud to own one of the best bolt .22 Marlins ever made. This is certainly a noteworthy event. !

Note: due to the design of the barrel, it has been determined this is a "Varmit" class rifle. All decisions by the judges are final. Any pirates causing trouble will be keelhauled, tied to the mast, and will walk the plank in their skivvies, before breakfast. AAAaaRRrrrrr.

After investigating the Marlin 2000 rifle you entered in the Superstock bolt action "13 MM" club, it is in conflict with the rules concerning the "sporter or varmit" designation set by the maker of the rifle, Marlin. The rules state:

"General Rules:
If a rifle is classified by it's maker as a Varmint model it goes into the Varmint class automatically. This is also true when the manufacturer designates the model with a letter "V" and mentions in it's literature that it is a Varmint or intended to be used on Varmints."

The Marlin 2000 is classified (intended) as a "Target" rifle, and the accessories included a "Summer Biathlon kit".

To have this rifle in the bolt "13 MM" game would not be fair to all members who have met the criteria of the game.

You are certainly welcome to submit an entry for the "13MM" bolt action game with a rifle that meets the rules set forth. My fault for the confusion. Corrections have been made to the list of shooters. Thanks, ... AH

The shame.... I feel like I have had a compromising picture from a twitter account made public....



(I have a sporter barrel gun that will do 13mm, I'll submit it when I get a chance.)
