1.5" groups at 200 is phenomenal sir--gotta try some of that good ammo sometime. Yes Mike--I hit 2 at 410, but it took me 40 shots to do it. Actually had a 1st shot at 552, and was so close to the dog he jumped into the air and was in his hole just that quick. About 120 MOA for the 552 and something 90 or so for 410. Had inconsistent wind up to about 5 mph full value. Couldn't believe how close the ballistics program was to actual (average of actual, that is). All this with the Magnum Research Picuda/Horus Vision Predator in shimmed Burris Pos-Align rings--The one on the right--

    The reason I like MiniMags is that my CZ zeroed at 50 yards with Eley Target when I switch to MiniMags I am zeroed at 90 yards. One revolution on my scope knob takes me to 170. Easy swap of the mags and I am covered anywhere from 10 yards to 170. Won't matter in a few more years once the lead ban kicks in. I'll have to shoot everything with lead free 17HMR.

    Can I get in here? I've been shooting a Remington Model 34 at a hundred yards with .22 SHORTS, not LR. Kinda funny, nobody around here believes me!

    Well for one'.., I do. I love the little short .22 rf... and it's surprising how much reach and accuracy they can have.. I have an older Remington Sportsmaster model 512 bolt rifle that is uncanny using .22 shorts in it, and yes out to 100 yards and then some. They also shoot great in my 1970's Win model 9422 but not quite like the model 512, but close.

    "not LR"? That's a matter of opinion, I think that is extreme long range!

    Pretty sure he meant not Long Rifle. LOL

    Shorts aren't much different than shooting sub sonics are they? Haven't shot a short in decades. Pretty sure they have a lighter bullet though which probably doesn't help in the Long Range department.

    Dunno how they compare, I just happened to find shorts when I couldn't find LR.

    I can tell you one thing, though -- they sure drop FAST!!! LOL!
