would get this one . about 35 yds.
thats why i cant hunt squirrel... cause i cant spot them rascals very well.
Or hit a neighbors house a mile away if you missed.
Shoot thats an easy target I shoot bees with mine
Have to agree with ya there JLA, the dragonfly's are good practice! Ive had a few good days of nothing but plinking and a good break it was.
you should not be hunting if houses are with in a mile. Don't be lazy and get out in the woods
Yeah, I'd probably be able to nail that little sucker with no problem.
My 10/22 at 50 yards with Federal Bulk 550 from Walmart:
I use a Simmons 3 X 9 scope set at 6 power.
Nice group snakedriver, here are a couple from my Rem 5 at 50 yds using Aguila golden eagle match rifle 40 gr. solids. I could shoot the hair off gnats arse with it...
My Rem 5 is set up with a set of steel tip off rings from warne, and mounted with a Burris fullfield II 3-9X40mm. I set it to 6X for 50 yds and closer as well...
[/URL][/IMG]100 yard target, 10 shots fired in 12-25 mph winds a few days ago with Ruger 10/22 and Simmons 3-9x40 scope using Remington Golden bullets. Not the best 100 yard target but considering the ammo and the wind not bad. For squirrel I prefer 50' or closer. The little fellers move around a lot more than this stationary target did and my old peepers take awhile to find them and focus. .
cool salami been rotten target. I want some
That's some real nice shooting too! One of these days I'll have to break down and spend a few extra bucks for some "match" ammo and see what my .22's can REALLY do, but for the most part I'm pretty happy with the way they do on the cheap bulk stuff as long as it's not Remington Golden Bullets.
I wanna try Lapua, but at 15 bucks for 50 rounds I wouldnt shoot it for fear of wasting it
Nice thing(s) about .22 rifles...you don't have to spend a ton of bucks on the rifle (or the ammo) to have an economical, accurate, fun and easy to shoot set-up...I can still tack-drive with the old Remington "511-X Scoremaster" my dad gave me for a (best) Christmas present many many! years ago. I never even "shot my eye out" with it, either like in the evergreen old movie A Christmas Story. I know- that was a Red Ryder BB gun!
As I've aged and got more disposable dollars- I've gravitated toward the Czech Republic's fine CZ rifles; both rimfire and CF. But the old Remington still cracks them off just fine. Good luck to the OP in your selection/ .22 rimfire shooting will always be one of the simple pleasures of life, huh guys?
Bob, I still have my old Remington 512 Sportmaster bolt action that my Dad gave me when I was 10 y.o. and what a great .22 rifle it is. Awesome accurate and fun for all to enjoy.
Snake-- sounds like we both had pretty good Dads, eh? I still sure miss mine-- he was gone way back in 1996 and I try to honor him in what he tried to teach me; sportsmanship, honesty, ethics, and last but not least-- straight shooting! Our old Remingtons will probably outlast us- the stock is a little small for me now, but I still roll it out once in awhile for ventilating a few cans and bottles out in the Desert---he also taught me to "clean up my messes," haha!
God bless him, my Dad will be 88 next month and is still going strong. We are still enjoying him while we have him. My sister has him up in the mountains of Colorado right now doing some trout fishing.
A while back I sort of rediscovered my old Remington 512 and decided to mount a scope on it and turn it into real hunter. I've been real happy with the results. I had forgotten how much fun it is to shoot and you can't beat the cost.
Thanks for that pic and post, snake! The only differences between our rifles is mine has the detachable magazine; I've got the original and a 10 round extended magazine for the 511... the back profile of my bolt is the same as the one in your pic. Has those unusual machined circular grooves with the firing pin indicator. You've got the tubular mag- holds about 12-15 rds?
I'm glad your Dad is doing well enough to do a fishing trip! My Dad is fishing also today-- up in the "Promised Land.." Where the fish are always biting!
Snake,my Dad is still with us but going downhill too fast.He's 79.But I've got plenty of memories that will stand the test of time.BTW enjoyed the picture of the nice Rem mdl 512.With the new optics you can learn to love it all over again. Joe
I use my Win. Model 75 with the globe lyman iron sights and CB longs. Same sound as my break barrel pellet gun and makes a nice thump.
(GULP), Nice group I must say!
