50m, bagged. Each target is a 10 round group.
Most 10/22T's don't shoot nearly that well... you got a ringer. Try some Wolf Match in that sucker
Nice lookin' gun and groups.
I have been trying to find some but not having any luck.
link to that stock?
It's OEM on the 10/22T model.
Some nice groups and props on doing real 10 shot groups. I feel that 3 and 5 shot groups do not tell the story. anybody can get lucky with a 3 or 5 shot groups. Ten shot groups show true consistency.
How did you shoot the groups, off a rest or sandbags? Extra points is you say you did this prone or with nothing but crossed arms benchrest hold off a table.
My accubolt shoot the federal bulk pack the best. Although it shoot almost every ammo pretty good
I had a fucking squib with that stuff today at Speed Steel. I'd stop buying it but it's cheap and feeds well in all of my guns. I guess it runs better than any other cheap .22 though.
I've had good success with the federal auto-match stuff that comes in 350rd boxes at Wal-Mart.
I used a leather sandbag on top of an ammo can for the front, and a big v-sandbag under the rear, on a bench. I have the little one secured to the top of a .50 ammo can, and set the rear stock into the big bag.
After how many rounds had been shoot? I usually just run a bore snake through my .22's at the range every 500rds. Amazingly enough Ive never had one that didnt fire in my accubolt, and only about 4 on my GSG-5 were duds out of probably 2-2.5k rounds
I've had really bad luck with the last few boxes of that stuff. Shooting it through an 11.5'' bbl, and a 16'' bbl, about 1/5 would be subsonic. Lots of duds. I got 3 or 4 today, I shot maybe 250 rounds or so. Usually I haven't had problems with the ammo but the last 2 or 3 boxes I've gone through this month have been real shitty.
What gun? Sure its just not getting worn out?
My 10/22 shoots the federal american eagle bulk stuff. Nothing special for accuracy and good for plinking. I would not use it for a match. For a steel plate match I would use cci mini mags. They are very consistent, and feed well out of high cap mags. If it's a serious accuracy thing I would go with wolf match extra or match target.
cci mini mags are like $7/100. So I can get through a match for like $14. That's pretty decent. You have to have good ammo to have a chance.
Wolf MT is like $45/500. This stuff shoots really well but it's kind of hard to get nowadays so I hoarde it for special matches.
One AR, two 10/22s, one 22/45. I only have 7k or so through my 22/45. Maybe I just grabbed some old boxes that had been sitting in the basement for a few years. I dunno I've got a few new boxes that I will run next weekend.
I bought a whole bunch of mini-mags after the match today, they were on sale. I've always had great luck with those, I just don't buy them much because they are a little more expensive. I'll run those next time if I don't run my Glock.
Sorry to derail the thread. Carry on.
I just bought like 5000 rounds of CCI Minimag after hearing so many good things about them. They didn't disappoint!
