One of the guys has a 10/22 that looks stock, it ain't, but with a reciever site he can ring that 6" gong ever time at 175 yards\ all day long I think. Don't use the high velocity ammo. It goes wild when it slows below the speed of sound at around 75 yards. Wolf/sk , federal 922a is rws r-50 loaded in germany for federal. Maybe some cheaper federal matchlike 711b may shoot well enought to be pleased with at 100 yards too.
Okay; it's a Savage Mk II
w/a PFI 3-9x32mm rimfire scope. The scope has a BDC marks every 20 yards from 40 out to 200 for 1200-1300 fps
ammo. It also has wind hashes for 2.5, 5, 7.5 and 10 mph. I got it teach myself wind before/if I go to larger calibers. We'll see how it goes.
Next question; What brand of kitty litter for the bag is best?
(edit to add)
We had some serious gusts yesterday. The windís still
been between 5 & 20 mph today and it looks itís going to do that into the weekend. Fair winds & following seas good are for sailing. For sighting in, I think not so much.
