    22LR AT 100 YARDS!!! FUN, FUN, FUN!!!

    When for a play today, "group therapy" and came home very happy with the results…
    20 shots with the magnetospeed on a business card(GUNSNZ) size target… Stoked! 17 shots, that i can count, in a 4cm height X 3cm wide group!

    Nice shooting, very consistent velocity.

    Nice - very dead bunny rabbits.

    Most accurate standard barrel 22 sporter for 100m shooting off the bench that I've encountered was a Norinco Em332. Tested it at 100m with several ammos and it had no troubly shooting 0.5" groups, and had a best four consecutive group average of 0.6". This was using the cheapie Kilwell huntsman 3-9 scope it came with. Here's an old thread with some genuine wee sharpshooters - none of which cost more than $300 incl scopes:

    Three .22 sharpshooters

    One thing that seems pretty consistent with .22LR shooting at 100 metres is that the quality of ammo plays a big part. Example, using an Anschutz or Walther target rifle that will group .20" at 50m for 5 shots with say Lapua Midas + or Eley Tennex and .40" with CCI subs or lower grade target ammo such as Eley Cub. Step that out 100m and the Midas and Tennex will still group .50" or less but the CCI subs and Eley Club will often group 1.5" or worse. Of course, that is not set in concrete as every firearm is different. However, it's generally what happens.

    its that variation in velocity of the cheaper ammo . . . mostly the groups are longer on the vertical line in my experience

    if you like 100yrd shooting . . take it out to 2-300yds, things get real interesting as you push it out

    @rossi.45, i haven't "played" with any other ammo brand yet but it sounds consistent with the group showing… I will never call "shooter error" was not present as i know that i can shoot but not perfectly …
    When i get back fit and find a job i will buy different ammo, or if someone want to donate some of the called expensive ammo for test i am happy to do it…

    Cheers.

    Mac

    your doing well with the ammo you have @PERRISCICABA .. . looks like you have a good scope/rifle combo . . i find LR .22lr shooting addictive

    CCI Standard Velocity ammo is cheap and holds near 1MOA in my rifles . . . it doesnt have to be super precise but a consistant known precision is good enough for fun . . . worth a try

    Haha Mac.

    Next you'll be individually weighing rounds like we do and repackaging - That's next level anal !! When we can be arsed! but this does help remove a couple more possible variables.

    I didn't find much of an advantage to be had with weight sorting 22LR ammunition. The next step for me is sorting by rim thickness...

    Looks awesome Mac! Pretty good shooting at that range. Now stretch that out to 200yds for some great long range practice
