    .22 gongs

    A while back I built three of these target frames for the .22, they are a4 size for stapling paper to. Had a brain fart the other day, seagulled a cupla little squares out the scrap bin, drilled them up, slapped some chain on, quick paint job an we're cookin with gas!

    Figured the mild steel will be fine just using .22. Kept the third for paper.

    I'm using a vostok 17-01, put a couple of boxes of cci subs through it, wanna go a bit further out anyone got any suggestions on a round with a bit longer legs?

    Just need some where to use them now!

    Nice one big_foot.
    Id be looking at the heavyer 22 high velocity rounds if they shoot ok in it.
    I have no idea of its bc but the new 42gr powerpoint has an impressive velocity for its weight.

    10 is not enough to zero and validate drops at longer range, just buy a packet of 50 or a hundred of lots of brands and get shooting.
    They are not that expensive in the grand scheme of things and ones you buy that your rifle doesn't particularly like are great for the wife and kids to plink with

    Don't shoot them too close!

    We have this spinning target thing made for slug guns, the slug guns hardly moved it so I used a .22 with a sub and boy did it spin, And have a huge dent probably close to putting a hole through it

    Was it one of those ones labelled 'for use with air rifles only'?

    Ingenious!
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Our 22 targets we shoot at much less than 10m. We generally make sure the target is place below the shooter to make sure the bullet is deflected into the dirt. We use 10mm mild steel though, including with high velocity ammunition.
