Re: Long Range .22 Long Rifle

Actually, I wouldn't think you would get any flak at all. Using a 22lr for those ranges is good, cheap trigger time.

Re: Long Range .22 Long Rifle

on winter time I used my 17HMR for practice to 460yrds on clay targets.

setup 10-20 clay targets at different distances and try to make first shot hits with 20gr CCI on 17 hmr caliber.
wind will be your enemy, but you will learn fast and because is no recoil at all you can see the bullet flying path changing when wind is pushing the bullet. it is a very fun and good learning technique to practice for long shots with inexpensive cartridges.
I agreed 22 lr or 17hmr, are good practicing rounds at low cost ammo.

Re: Long Range .22 Long Rifle

The only problem that is experienced is the ammunition. I let the kids and first time shooters use the cheap promotional Junk. It's a shame that so many of the good shooting once respected packages of 22 LR ammunition have turned into garbage

Greyfox, this follows my thoughts exactly. Thanks do sharing.

Who makes the model 452?

Re: Long Range .22 Long Rifle

Again, thanks all for your comments. I too was thinking of the Burris signature rings with MOA inserts.

My brother and I were on the mountain goofing around one day with our stock 10/22's. Both were scoped. we were shooting apple sized white rocks at around 200 yards. We were likely angling down around 15 degrees downhill. It was as fun of a time shooting as I can remember. Cheap too.

I will look into the CZ 452. I thought it might have been a CZ after I posted.

That post about finding the perfect bolt action 22 is on page 9 on this forum. Also on rimfire central there is a section on czs. Lots of good info. Matt
