Re: Contender carbine in .22 Mag?

Finally got to wring it out. Fired Federal .22 mag, CCI solids and hollowpoints, Winchester solids and hollowpoints, and Remington Premier. Terrible groups (gatherings) with everything except the Win Super X hollowpoints. They could only do 1 moa consistently, though. Shooting at 100 yds. on 9 power. Not acceptable. Will rechamber to .22 K-Hornet and try again.

The Marlin .17 HMR is next up, or the Swift, or the 7-08, or???

A big fast bullet will beat a little fast bullet every time

Re: Contender carbine in .22 Mag?

the .22 mag has a diameter of .224 and a .22lr nonjacketed bullets are .222
and the cci jacketed bullets mic'ed at .223 so i assume that would affect accuracy going from .22 mag to .22lr but the other way round should be ok, still i would chronograph it to see how fast the velocity is compared to the specs given by the manufacturer
