44US match ammo question...



Log in to see fewer ads
Gentlemen,

I have a 44US(b), and @ 50yds, has given me 'consistent' 195 - 199 scores on the A23/5 tgt. My high water mark with this rifle is 199-13X on the A23/5. (Iron Sights only (S100/S106)). This is with selected lots of CCISV. I've tried Wolf MT, Wolf ME, SK Std+, ELEY Club Xtra and Lapua CntrX and haven't seen any noticeable improvements over CCISV.

What I want to do is push myself (and the rifle) and get the magical '200' with this rifle (benched, 2-piece setup).

The rifle is capable of some nice 'groups' @ 50yds. but just isn't consistent enough with the CCISV IMHO:


Ex. of groups on the A23/5 @ 50yds. Iron Sights CCISV (pls, excuse the poor 'zero' ) :









Ex. of a accuracy with ELEY Club Xtra on A23/5:







Just for a baseline comparison sake... a tgt. I shot with my 52C (Lapua CntrX) @ 50yds.) Iron Sights :








My question is: "If you had only one 'match grade' ammo to use to @ 50yds. what would it be" ???

Many thanks in advance.

Can't really answer your question, just want to say great shooting! We only shoot domestic ammo at our club and most guys shoot cci sv. It seems to be the most available. I'm shooting low 190s with my 46A. Will be leaving directly for my bimonthly match.

Good Luck for your match today damdane. You've finally got some good weather to shoot in (ex. today in Chi-town, clear, very low wind conditions...).
