Re: Shooting the CMP Kimber 82G.......

Kytopgun, Check with CMP. I think they have an operation at Camp Perry. Port Clinton may be in driving distance for you. With all the National Matches coming up, they will for sure be set up then, probably on Commercial Row. The best thing about going there is being able to select a rifle before you buy it.

I have one also, and it isn't finicky, but so far the best ammo in it has been the SK Match, at about $6.50 per box of 50. I also have only shot the (excellent) iron sights, but when I do my part, it's consistently 1/2" for 5 shot strings at 50 yds (1 MOA). I believe that it will easily shoot 1/2 MOA, (a knothole) with the SK ammo and a good scope.

I just broke down and bought a 50 rd box of RWS 50, 50 rds of Fed GM Ultra Match, and a 100 rd box of CCI Green Tag to try in a couple of good .22L/R's, including the 82G.

The 82G barrel broke in quickly and cleans up quickly after only 35 rds. Until I put a good scope on it, I'll never know how good it is, but I enjoy shooting the irons.

I believe the rifles are keepers.
