    It was fun. I put 500 rounds through it and only had one failure to fire. No other problems.

    Well, I couldn't get on paper at 50 yards :mamoru: until the guy next to me let us use his spotters scope.

    I'm not very good at it, but we had fun. :coold:

    Now I need to clean it. It's filthy.

    There were a bunch of guys there with AR-15's too. :cool:

    If you don't have a way to bore sight it's usually helpul to start at 25 yards or closer.....but with .22 it doesn't matter I guess because of the cheapness.

    wow, if you can't get on paper at 50yards that's pretty sad. Keep working at it, I guess.

    I just looked where the dust was flying on the backstop then moved the windage until I was on paper.

    Cant see mine with the scope mounted.

    :werd:

    I never tried it with the iron sights. I didn't want to mess with the front sight. :hs:

    The range I went to is kind of strange. The targets are pretty much ground level and that makes looking for dust weird.

    As long as you are having fun, that is all that matters. But yeah, start at 25 yards for sighting in. What scope did you get?

    You put 500rds through a 10/22 and only had one failure to fire?

    Man I was had at least 10 failures to fire and I lost count of the stove pipes.

    The ammo was really cheap so I just didn't care.

    One failure to fire, no other problems. It was early on too, I think it was a bad round. I was shooting cheap shit too. Remington® .22LR Golden® Bullet

    They are for the scope. :hs:

    It came with the wrong rings for the base I have. They were real big like for a rail on an AR or something.

    I took it to a gun shop and they changed the rings and boresighted it for me for $30 :cool:

    I'm not real good at it but I had some decent groups at 50 yards.

    You don't need to clean your 10/22 unless you start having major accuracy issues or jams. I haven't cleaned my ultimate in almost a year and it's flawless. My stocker hasn't been cleaned in 5-6 years. With .22LR eat round you shoot cleans/lubes the bore pretty well.

    Welcome to the 10/22 crew =)

    :cool:

    No issues yesterday. I put 750+ rounds through it and had 2 failure to fire. It held zero fine all day.

    I bought a brick of Remington thunderbolt? ammo yesterday. It's much better than the golden bullet bulk pack hollowpoints IMO.

    I took the trigger guard apart last night while I was cleaning the rifle. That was interesting. I'm glad Ruger has an exploded diagram of how that goes back togather. :o

    I always get clean holes when I shoot them with my .22 maybe I'm using higher velocity ammo :dunno:

    If you're getting a hi cap don't buy a cheap one. I have 3-4 30 rounders that might as well be 10 rounders because they cause feed jams every 9-10 rounds. These are the Eagle and Hot Lips mags.

    Yeah that's what I've been reading.

    Cheaper than dirt didn't have the steel feed lipped high cap magazines just the plastic ones so I didn't buy any.

    I looked at some Ar's though. :kdubb: It's so nice to be out of Commiefornia.
