Finally go to shoot it a little

I recently rebuilt my Ruger 10/22 but never have been able to test it out. I recently did some more work to it and wanted to test it. Life has been really hectic but yesterday I got to sneak out for a couple of hours before dark and try it out.

Hadn't shot it with this scope so tried it at 25, got it on paper and then one at 50. Dialed the scope and tried 3 using the X. The 3 looked good so I added 7 more. Looked at it through the scope and was having so much fun I refilled the clip and put 10 more down range, for a total of 20 rounds. Wasn't being real careful as I was just having fun and shooting off the bipod. Need a slight adjustment to the Burris inserts and then I'll be able to try it again when I get a little time.

This is the 20 round hole at 50 yards with CCI MiniMag Hollow Points. Haven't even tried the "good stuff" in it yet.



This is the little Ruger strutting it's stuff with its big brother.



Little bit of snow on the ground along with some cold weather and some bunnies and other critters better learn to duck.

I think you need to tighten up your groups a bit...

Re: Finally go to shoot it a little

I tend to just have fun when it comes to the 22s. I was just shooting off a bipod and no rear rest over my hood in a cold wind of about 10-15 mph. The good part about the wind was that I didn't have to shoot at 90 degrees to it. Didn't have time to load up all of the good stuff for testing.

I'll take it cause it's not all that bad for a blind, crippled, cross-eyed, used up ol fart.

If you shot that good in 10-15 mph wind and your blind,crippled,and cross-eyed I would like to see what you would have done in your prime

Nice shooting and big brother looks awesome!

It's nice to have an accurate rifle that I can't wear out the barrel on it.
