    Cos I haven't much else to do at the moment...

    CZ 455 Varmint, CCI subs, 200mm diameter metal plate at 230m.

    Look for the little white dot on the hillside. That's where the plate is (obviously).

    I though you said you'd do that in undies and slippers.

    The amount of cases on the table tells a story too

    The story they would tell is Flyblown was having such a ball he dumped multiple mags on that plate and just as many on a 3"x 4" hanging gong at 168 yards. Even with a shifty wind an easy 90% were hits.

    200 to 250y with a good quality .22lr is not as difficult as it sounds. Ive spent many of evening on that bench blowing through bricks of ammo on gongs way out there.
    Its a nice relaxing way to spend the evening and is valuable but cheap training for the bigger centerfires.

    I might have to upgrade my range finder @oraki but not my rifle.

    Tut, I dunno, cynics eh!

    All good everyone, settle down. The truth of the matter is I was given the hold and told to get on with it. Hit within 2-3 shots, from then on it was easy. I think once you know your rifle after a few thousand shots with the same ammo it is a lot easier than it maybe first appears. @rossi.45 had it right a couple of weeks ago, seems he and @Wingman and @Dundee and whoever else have just worked it out and off they go. I hadn’t even heard of this kind of rimfire work until Rossi.45’s post with those 200m+ rabbits. I intend to try and join the club. The windage is quite hard, that’s wear the skill needs to be learnt.


    Interesting thing for me is how hard it is to find any reference to this kind of rimfire shooting on the interweb. There’s very very little out there about 200m rimfire.

    You must do! This for you unbelievers is why the bike is facing the wrong way. He stated at the start of the article that he’s only 5’4!
    In the set up for the shot he has already anticipated that his marksmanship might bring results and would need to stand on the back of the bike so that the dog would be able to see his hand signals to finish the retrieve
    Also any good farmers worth there salt would never drive across a paddock as it fecks up the grass which you need to produce milk so that you can bye quality firearms to take out the grass munchers that should not be their!
    no hes just that short he needed to stand on quad to be able to see the hare due to the curvature of the earth. he almost needs a periscope for those shots.

    The only reason I dish it to him is because I’m jealous, not of his shooting, but I don’t get out fishing very often.
    I get all the bites I need from @Dundee to keep me going

    Thinking about it, I have done this as well, about 6 years ago. The range was about 200m and the plate was about 1 foot square.

    I have no photographic proof and no Licensed clergymen were there on the day to verify anything, just a bunch of shooters,including a small bald man who was very much in love with himself, @sniper80, @Kaimaikid, and Me.

    My memory is very hazy. @Kaimaikid might remember the specifics, I think it was a 22 using subsonics.

    He told me," I've got the holdover sussed, give it a go. Hold the cross hairs on the top of that ridge."

    Way above the target. Like a good boy I do as told and squeeze the trigger and from far away, a tiny ding. I did it a few more times,and handed the 22 back to him shaking my head in disbelief. No way I could've hit it in a month of sundays without some assistance.
