PMR and CMR at the range



Log in to see fewer ads
Shot the PMR 120 rounds of A22 ammo and had zero errors. The Pmr also loved the A22 but I did have a few failure to feed, my loading wasn't great.

When shooting the PMR everyone stopped shooting and watched a 22 that was louder than a 45acp and had a awesome fireball during the shot.

I also shot my new Taurus 992 4inch using the 22 lr cylinder and other than the hammer being a ***** to pull back, the gun is awesome. Would have shot magnum but the cylinder needed cleaned.

Overall great day.

PMR's and CMR's are a lot of fun, but loading the magazine correctly is pretty much a must.

Picked up a PMR a few weeks ago and after shooting it the first time I'm now on the hunt for a CMR.

How was your accuracy with the the CMR?

With a 3-12 Athlon scope, it's 1 or 2 moa depending on ammo. The 45g self defense ammo was the best. Fun gun.

With its Red Dot, 1 to 1.5 inches at 50 yards but thats more than enough for my intended use.



Now have two PMR-30's to go with it and one will get a Bushnell First Strike in a day or two when the TandemKross Freedom rail gets here.

It's a lot of fun and with 10 magazines in the bag total, well a lot bang in a small package. That is the Blackhawk Diversion Racquet Case.

10!

I have 4 and thought I was doing good....

One question....I noticed that Kel-Tec says they put a lubrication inside the magazines. Have you ever cleaned yours? and do you replace this "lubrication" and with what?

Haven't cleaned one yet, that's one nice thing about using mostly actual Jacketed bullets, not much in the way of residue.

Thanks GMD! I'm about ready to pick one up, hoping to find a good deal locally.

Heading to the range for the 1st time with mine tomorrow. I decided to tear down one of my new magazines and see if it was lubricated. Tore down all 4...not a spec of lubrication inside any of my 4. Bone dry including the springs. The springs were rough feeling and looked like they were starting to rust!
I took Breakfree CLP on a q-tip to the inner magazine rails the follower and spring rides in and to the spring itself with a patch. The crud on the springs was nasty! The CLP made the springs look brand new and removed the rusty dirt and totally improved their look and feel.
All 4 magazines are SO MUCH quieter and smoother in operation. Well worth the work.

Note: the magazine floor plate is a PIA to remove as you're pushing down the button. I had to tap off all 4 floor plates instead of the usual push off with your thumb method. The floor plates fit TIGHT to the mag body. I put CLP there as well in hopes of easier removal later on.

Bottom line..I suggest all PMR owners do a mag and mag spring clean and light lube.

Just put new wolf springs in my Taurus 992 and it is now my favorite gun. 6pound DA pull and 2 pound SA pull. Still love the keltecs but you can't beat the revolver.

CMR 30 @ 50yds & 100 yds

Took my CMR 30 out today to sight in the little SeeAll sight I had attached on top of the rear scope ring. Used 45 grain Hornady self defense rounds. Those were the most accurate when I sighted in the scope @ 100 yds. (Scope is a Leupold American Marksman w/bdc reticle)
I tried using about 4-5 different brands of .22WMR ammo and the Hornady's were the best. I also have the PMR 30 and the Hornady 45 grain seem to feed the best through that as well.
Pics below w/cardboard colored w/permanent marker are at 50 yards & I was sighting in my SeeAll sight. You can see the bullets working their way upward until I hit the bullseye. The other box is 4 shots I took at a clean target.
Then the other pic with my homemade shoot 'n see targets is @ 100 yards fired from a lead sled rest using the Leupold American Marksman scope.
I have another range down the road where I am going to test shooting @ 150 yds & 200 yds. I'll post some pics of that.

CMR 30 @ 200 yards

Took my CMR 30 out to my range today & shot @ 200 yards. There was a slight breeze from right to left.... maybe only a couple m/p/h/ wind at the max. I shot CCI 40 gr FMJ & the Hornady 45 gr self defense rounds. It was better than I thought it would shoot through my 3-9x Leupold American Rifleman. Pretty happy with the results. One thing I did notice was that in the BDC reticle.... the 40 gr CCI matched up with the top of the 2nd dot down. The Hornady 45 gr. matched up with the third dot down which is probably a difference of 7"- 8" or so down at the target. Those 40 gr. bullets definitely have a flatter trajectory. Both of these rounds were close as far as their 5 shot groups. Now I'm going to have to shoot those 40 gr. CCI's at 100 yards. They might be a viable round for my CMR-30. On sale $9.99/per/box of 50 rounds (Not too bad!!!)
