Default My new target .22 that you guys helped me select

Here is a photo of the Target .22 that I selected. You guys helped me with my decision with your input. I would like to say "Thanks."

It is a Browning Buck Mark special edition. I also have a UDX model on order.

I mounted a Browning Reflex site which makes it very easy to shoot.

At 25 yards, I have it down to a 3/4 inch 10 shot group. (rested hold)

Not able to shoot 50 yards yet.

Help selecting what?? Try some pistol match ammo and see if groups get smaller. CCi has a pistol match and several other.

Nice,
The other guy's right. Don't cheap out on the ammo. Find a box that costs as much as a Walmart milkbox and a brick that costs as much as a case. Test 'em. You'll see what the gun can do and as you get better, you'll know you've got a fine arm and need the better ammo to keep uo with you!
Congrats!

That looks great.

I've recently taken a lot of interest in 50 and 100 yard shooting

with my scoped Ruger MK II. Can't decide whether to

sight in the scope at 100 yet, or just holdover from the 50.

Wow! You must have serious physiological controls beyond most normal humans. That's nice!

Pick up a couple boxes of Eley Match and Wolf Match ammo. You'll see a difference in accuracy.
