    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

    ...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.

    Sweet shooting! I have to give Wolf a try. I get pretty good accuracy with Federal Match grade for semi autos....from Wally World :rolleyes:
