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.

    212yds at a racoon.... it was a stock 10/22, i had my leupold set at 16 power.

    I shot 8/10 clay pigeons at 100 yds off hand with a heritage arms 6.5inch barrel single action revolver.

    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....

    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!!!!!!!!!!
