How's this for a 50 yd score - 242-0 x (only had time for one target)

This was with my 10/17 with Lilja barrel, Kidd trigger, and Turner cherry wood BR stock.

The little bullet is accurate, but it's, well......little.

After it was scored with the .177 gauge, just for giggles I scored it with a .22 gauge, 246-6x. So the bullets are going in the right place, just don't push enough paper out of the way to break those lines.

Still need to bed the action, so it should get better. Also Mikey is making a new and improved stock, so that should help too. GG

Thats some pretty fair shootin' Gordy! With a Click-Clack Hummer no less!

Dave Ill ran across a .14 cal Brno the other day (no, he didn't buy it)...uses necked down .22 lr cases. Thats a real gnat killer! Don't know where he gets the bullets...:confused: JL

X count?

If the hole is completely inside the 8 ring to score as an X when scored as a .22, how is it that it's not completely inside it when scored as a .17? Is the .17 so tiny it can be completely inside the 8 and not touch the 10?

This certainly isn't to scale but it should show you what is going on. If you take two bullets..one a 17 and the other a 22, and have them strike the target exactly in the same place on center, this should show you the difference. The extra diameter of the 22, represented on the right is big enough to completely take out the 10 ring, where the 17 on the left won't .

Whooooh:

Mike:

Wait a minute! What's this about "completely inside the 8 ring to score as an X" (???)

To score an x: The 10 ring must be shot away. When the scoring gauge is placed in the shot hole: "If any of the green ten ring is showing it IS NOT and x.

Because the 10 ring is .100" and the .17 caliber gauge is .177" it will be much more difficult to score and x than with the larger .224" .22 caliber gauge.

Because we don't have a score committee to do the scoring for us: EVERY SHOOTER in these matches must understand the correct scoring procedure,

Please look over the attached scoring graphic. If there is something you do not understand: Please ask.
