my mini mini will shoot around 2.5-3" if I use plinking type ammo. it does much better with hornady v-max, which my mini seems to love. unfortunately, the $1 a bang limits how many I can shoot of that round. but it is the ammo I use on these challenges. I get good results with black hills match ammo as well.

have you made any mods to your mini, or is it stock? give us some history on it...

I took out the scoped challenge after a couple of tries, but I don't know if i'll ever be able to beat the irons challenge. I used to be good with irons, but lately after 10-20 minutes with irons...my eyes start blurring.....

Ya it was a bad day at the range lol but a bad day at the range is better then a good day at work. Had a great time with the wife an kids with three 22's.

Default Scope @ 100

ok, here we go again...

might not have made river rat too proud on this run, but overall it had some good points. i hit 5 for 5 in 2" again with a nice little scoped group @100.

best part....i was too cheap to buy my best accuracy rounds, so this group is actually remeington UMC 55 grain....which i have found to be pretty accurate in my gun...this repsresents the best group i have ever shot with them....normally they do closer to 3" for me....

all my mods, etc are posted previously.

proud of this one...

Default Irons @ 50

well, i'm no master p, but i am ok with these groups. still haven't put 5 for 5 in 2" @ 50.....not sure i ever will.....

but i am pretty happy with my irons groups....i have such a damn hard time seeing them at that range....just a tiny dot sitting on top of my front sight....it takes a lot of faith....

i do shoot 2" groups with irons at 50 now & then, but i have never been able to put that groups consistently in 2"....

i had two other groups that were too bad to post, but i thought it only fair to mention it......

great day shooting......love my mini!!!!

Default Best groups scoped 100

i am very pleased with this group. this was a 100 yard scoped group that i shot a bit faster....probably no more than 2 seconds between shots. this is the best i have ever done firing in this fashion....measured about a 2.25" group.

Default Irons big group 50

well....i did the same thing with my irons to finish out my mini shooting (and a box )...

hmmm....well i hit center mass the whole time..........group measures about 6 inches at its widest....i was just banging away every 1-2 seconds at center mass....no more orange stickers...at least i am confident i can hit a milk jug at 50 yards with irons (on a bench..heh)....

hope to see some more shooting on this challenge!!!!!!!

always great to get some range time! it was therapeutic!

now i just gotta clean the damn gun.....&^%$#$%!!!!
