I have reconfigured my rimfires and have them all dialed in. I had a complete build in parts remaining, so I assembled a scrap build.
The receiver is my botched, then recovered 80%, OEM bolt, Kidd bull barrel, Ruger mod'ed trigger group pulling at 2.5#, Archangel stock and a Primary Arms 4 X 14 scope on Monstrom mounts. I wanted to give the Kidd bull a chance to redeem itself, I thought a completely new build might change a dynamic.
I wanted to spend a day at the range; I wasn't concerned about how well either the gun or I performed. Good thing. I had a typically good day. Ran into a forum member who is a Wednesday regular, met interesting people and saw some neat guns.
I don't recall using this receiver much. The Ruger trigger group has my 3D printed trigger blade and magazine release, both designed by me, inspired by Ruger. The trigger is a straight blade target trigger design. The magazine release wasn't dropping the magazine without pushing down on it through the ejection port, but the trigger blade performed flawlessly, it is moving in on 500 rounds of use! 0 malfunctions feeding or ejecting.
The Kidd barrel disappointed again. The group dispersion appears to be even, I don't see any clear patterns. I'll probably bore scope it and slug it at some point in the future, but at this point in time
Although these aren't as good as the sheets everyone else posts(He-he-he) they are pretty good compared to 75% of the other rimfire targets I see out at the range.
Whoops, 50 yards.
