CZ 457 VPT and Lilja Barrel...Range Report!!!

3590 65
All I can say is....WOW!!! o_Oo_O

My Lilja .900 barrel came in and I got it installed on my 457 VPT. We spent Saturday working on a metal shop. Come lunch time we stopped for pizza and I broke out my rifle, sighted it in (4 shots total!!) and we all took turns trying it out. I had a steel target hanging at 50 yds I used to sight in on. This target has a 1/2 inch square hole in it used for hanging and that's what we decided to shoot at. Ammo used was a new lot of Norma Tac-22 that came in Friday and wind was low at 1 to 4 MPH. Three shooters and 60 shots later, only 4 shots did not go through the 1/2 inch hole. To say the very least...everyone was happy with the results!!!
Not a great range report....but it's what I had time to pull off. :D

The 2 very low impacts and the 2 impacts just low right of the hole were sighter shots. There were 60 shots fired at the hole. You can see 2 solid impacts and 2 partial impacts around the hole. The rest went through it.

What do y'all think about this?

Did a little testing with 3 lots eley match. Each row has five 5 shot groups from each lot on an ARA Unlimited target.

Which row would you choose???? Top, middle or bottom row???

Those groups look nice. Yes, probably the first row wins?
I've got my fingers crossed. I blindly ordered two different lot# bricks of Eley Match last night from kss.
Figured on going with the bricks instead of just 20 different lot# boxes because it cant be that bad. I hope! It ain't cheap ammo!
Call me lazy I guess.

Hey, congrats on the success with your grandson! That's impressive in many ways.
Well done! He must be a well put together little guy. I hope my son will be shooting well by 7. Hes just 4 and not ready at all. He just doesn't listen well enough yet. You've inspired me!

Patience and more patience is what it takes.....even at seven yrs. old, the attention span is short. He kept wanting to do a victory lap on the gator every time he hit the chicken. LOL!!! Boy loves to drive anything he can reach the pedal on. :)

Let us know how the Eley ammo works for you. (y)

Hes lucky to have such a cool grandfather!
I would have loved to shoot or drive anything with my grandfather or dad. I was born into the wrong family! Haha
Keep up the good work, he will always remember these times. I guarantee it.
