Re: Who\'s tricked out a 10/22, LR with 60gr aguila Sniper sub-sonic
I shoot the 60gr Aguila in my factory Ruger K77 / 22 VBZ (24" barrel with 1:16 RH twist) and it stabilizes the bullet no problem, it's just that accuracy isn't as good as the Federal Gold Medal Ultra Match.
Bullet drop is about 8" at 100 yards when sighted for Zero at 25 yards. Accuracy is acceptable (right at 1" or so). Never checked for B.C., but I assume it has to better than any of the other .22LR ammo. Wind drift is definitely minimal compared to other match ammo, approximately 1/3 less drift.
I use them at my uncle's horse farm for shooting ground squirrels right in the pastures with the horses. I can clap my hands louder than the report. I only do head shots and so far my longest shot is 72 yards (paced). That might not sound far, but try to hit something the size of a nickel (approx 1/2") at that range.
