Wlfdg it's the most fun you can have and very pleasureable too. A buddy and myself shot one evening in a field that silage had been cut off and we were hitting rocks in that field far enough to make us "liars". I was shooting a Win 75 and he was shooting a Shul. I hit a dirt clod bout the size of a milk jug twice in a row at $%^&* 550yds. Also I was shooting Win Wildcat ammo in the 75...it likes it too. That's all I'd better say before I'm called a liar.

Lots and Lots of clays at 300 yds .... very good for wind reading and trigger pull as well as follow- through
by far and away best for reading what the wind does to ya....

remington 541 t one of the funnest and accurate guns I have....

Re: Longest .22lr shots

Just got back from the range....400 yds at clays

took the better part of the box to walk it in and then it was just dealing with the wind
nothing puts a smile on your face like popping a clay at 400 yards with a 22 rimfire!!!!!!!!!!
