Re: Rimfire help!
Myself, my son n law, and about a half dozen buddies have the Savage Mark II TR's and BVSS 22LR rifles. They have typically demonstrated accuracy in the 1/2"-1" range on average with match grade ammo at 100 yards. Sometimes you have to try a couple of different brands of ammo to get that accuracy. The balance, weight, barrels, stock design, and trigger are nicely suited for practice without giving a substantially different feel when switching to a heavier centerfire. For long range practice, I mounted a 6x20 VX 3 ER Leupold with turrets/ ballistic chart that simulates long range shots on red squirrels, chipmunks, woodchucks, and winged pests at ranges from 25-100 yards. It's great practice since ranging, wind, and shooting skills, are as critical for one shot kills as when hunting game with center fires. It's very cost effective, and great practice year round to keep the skills sharp.
