Range report Ruger 10/22
 
My wife had my 10/22 redone for me for Christmas with a Kidd barrel, a new stock, and a Weaver T-36 scope.

I am new to competition, and here is one of my targets:

Obviously, I have a lot to learn.

I shot a lot of two types of ammo, Lapua and Wolf. The rifle clearly liked the Wolf a lot more than the Lapua. That's great, because it's a LOT cheaper.

Looking forward to many days of friendly competition at the gun club.

Lon you might want to give Wolf Match Target a try as well. Its even cheaper than the Match Extra and the MT has outperformed MExtra in all my 22's.
Also If you have a set of scales I've found you can slightly increase your accuracy by sorting your ammo by weight. Just a tip

Nice Shooting and Congrats!

Oh yeah-I almost forgot

I had posted it before your pilgrimage back to the FTF, Gate. I think I can speak for everyone when I say that we are delighted and extremely grateful to have you back.

...and thanks for the tip on the ammo, I will definitely check it out.

Your tip about weighing the cartridges is really interesting. Sometimes I get a flyer that is just baffling, when I swear I pegged it. Maybe that could have something to do with it.

You got it exactly right.
Weighing really seems to help get rid of the odd flyers(especially on "cheaper" ammo)
I usually just dump a brick and sort into groups by .1grains. Usually they all are within a few tenths but every now and then you'll get one that is WTF?;)
Some guys will sort by rim thickness as well but I've never tried that.

Looking good. How far were you shooting?
