Great target and a beautiful rifle. If it keeps shooting like that I wouldn't change a thing.

But would probably have to replace the rings also, so may just leave it as it is. This gun was supposed to be a donor gun for my Lilja 17M2 barrel, but after shooting it I decided to buy another one to rebarrel. That picture doesn't do it justice, here is a better one.
Dang , thatís a pretty one !

239 8X
leej Leroy Jones
CZ 457 American Mueller 8-32X44 TD, Center X
Cicognani front, Protector rear
39F, 9-13 mph, 84% humidity

Roughly 400 rounds through it now. Replaced the Clearidge scope with this Mueller 8-32X44 that is clearer but the dot fills the entire 9 at 9X . I reviewed the discussion about using a plastic card to shim the stock away from the barrel and I have done this. There is improvement in POA/POI but I attribute that to the scope mostly.

I have a Mueller 8-32xx44 but use it for 50 and 100 yards . Never tried it on 9X @25 .
Iíve settled on the Nikon 3-9x40 EFR for my 25 yard shooting . The dot is small enough and the scope is clear .
Wish Nikon still made them , but I was able to pickup three of them before they sold out .
Helps my CZ 455 Tacticool 24Ē make the 9 pound weight .

That's a good target Leroy, especially the X count. That scope is about a long as the rifle.

I gave up on the Clearidge. Sent it back for repairs, it wouldn't track. I'm going to take a look at Leupold and see what is available in a 3x9.

First bad thing Iíve heard about Clearidge. Iíve started to buy one a couple of times because of good reviews, but never did.

Thank you Sir. Too many 9’s and those eights suck.
Yes it is with the sun shade on it. Trying to get as close to 9 pounds that I can. This particular rifle is not shooting as well as my Trainer yet but think it is getting better.

I find a lot of the 9's iffy when looking through the scope at 9x, as they could be 10's but you won't know for sure until later. It keeps your head in the game. But seeing an 8 can put a wrench in the works.
I have the same scope, it has made the rounds on a few guns and sets on my 10/22 " Old Brown Shoe" now. I like the scope , and found that the sunshade also fits on my two Weaver V-24's.

Nice target

Thank you Ken. I like this scope also. It is a little brighter and has a really nice parallax control meaning easy to dial in. Really was looking for better but with the struggles getting this rifle to shoot like I would want Iíll take it. After today I see that I need to use a different rear rest. Was very difficult getting it stable and required way to much contact.

First trip to the range with my new 457 MTR and my first two benchrest targets ever.
Just picked up the rifle lastweek. I am very happy with it.

Welcome to the club Max. Nice looking rig you have there. I'm sure it will get better with age. We are always glad to have new folks join in. A couple of comments...... trying to get you up and running. Do you have a scoring plug? I've got old eyes and sometimes that becomes a good excuse, but from the looks of what I could see, both of your targets should score a little better. Also, just for my sake, if those were the only 2 targets you have shot this month, you still have 2 available. You might wait till the end of the month to mark your best target as Official Entry. That just makes it easier for me to do the tabulation at the end of the month. I expect a better score by then.

Thank you for your kind welcome. I am new to Benchrest shooting, but very excited and look forward to join the fun.
I apologize that I didn't use scoring plug. I will use it the next time. Btw, is it the same as a regular smallbore plug?
I will try to shoot two more targets next weekend, I might try different ammo. I only have a chance to shoot ~80 rounds of Eley Match through the rifle since I got it 2 weeks ago. I have old lot of Eley Edge and SK Rifle Match to try.

No problem. Yes, just use a standard scoring plug in .22 cal. The ones with the built in magnifiers are best for the really close calls. If the plug touches the scoring ring it gets the higher value.
