Jon, I may have to come up and join you at that range. Do they have steel targets for anything other than .22?

the targets were at the 25 yard line. i took my ar15a1 with cmmg kit, ruger 10/22 pink target and 22/45 threaded barrel with 1500 rounds. ran 500 through the ar and 10/22 and 1000 through the 22/45. all three functioned flawless lots of lead on steel. had a freekin blast. its quite a challenge hitting those small steel poppers with an open sight pistol consistantly. some of the targets were half the size of the front sight at that range!!

the 22/45 threaded barrel im most impressed with it went a solid 1000 shots without cleaning. course its a disgustingly dirty pistol atm but it was a ton of fun. taking out all the lawyer crap in the gun really made it a super reliable shooter.

I went to McMiller last week and noticed this range too!

I went there to sight-in my LE6920 which I installed a Larue 7" rail on and my SCAR so I was at the 100 yard range for the day.

I'll definitely be coming back with my 10/22 and Mark IIs in a few weeks!

It is evil. Makes you waste hours and hours and bricks and bricks of ammo.
