Ok. Help. What is the "verge." I thought it was shrubbery.

Verge is right up there with the archaic 'marge' which first came to attention in my youth reading The Cremation of Sam McGee by Rbt.Service.

Browning Buckmark Silhouette on the Sinclair Bipod
Burris EER AO scope on top.

Eley Action 40 grain 22lr



Still learning how to hold the grip to minimize shifting during trigger squeeze.
Look at the difference between the two patterns produced.





From what I can tell, the heel of my trigger hand is elevating the butt just as I squeeze.
Change in the muscle shape resting on the bags is the cause. By using my supporting hand
under the butt and trigger hand slightly higher on the grip, much tighter results.
Still a long way to go, but at least I'm showing improvement.

Better results with the Buckmark than my Marlin 60.
Ain't that a kick.

Hey Jaia--you should have folded that cardboard at the crease before showing that second target, nobody would have known the difference Seriously though, that ain't too bad a shootin' for a rimfire pistol at 200yds! Looks like good fun. I'm sure you will get that vertical sorted out.

Jaia, better straighten your hat out. I meant to type "average" (didn't know "verge" existed).

Pat, do you realize what that means?
You had y'er own random act of accuracy.
Might of been unintentional, but verge was dead on the mark.


TS, when I can avoid causing the vertical shift, consistently, with the Buckmark,
I have some of the better Lapua and Eley to make the attempt with.
I want to determine just how well a long barrel pistol can do.

I used to have one of the early buckmark silhouette’s like yours. I did the same thing, harris bipod and a leupold pistol 4x scope.
That was a long ranger squirrel killer!

Bona fide? Does that mean "needs work?"

It's a bloody tripod with a barrel on top and I still can't keep it steady.
But it does get me out of the house when the wife has the girls over for coffee and conversation.

Maybe something like this on your pistol?

Might interfere with the magwell Bill.

I might need a wedge shaped block and leather pad
in order to produce a stable grip at the correct height.
The bean bags might be too soft to prevent movement.

Yup, firmer a pistol rests at the rear the easier it is to get good groups. Tried heavy bags, plastic and wood wedges helped but like any pistol they are super sensitive to shooter input.

Bullet velocities & consistency based on barrel length.

Maybe this has been done. If so, I never saw it. I don't have a chronograph here in Florida. But I would like to see some .22 ammunition shot out of a short barreled pistol, a short rifle barrel and a long rifle barrel to see if the consistency changes at all with the bullet's length in the barrel. I am willing to bet if there is a difference, the longer barrel will get the most consistency.
