    You're having way too much fun.

    Slow down a bit between shots though. That thin barrel heats up awfully fast.

    It's impressive as hell to get even 1:5 hits with a .22lr at that range though.gun)

    I have shot at this range with other guns with a 50 yard zero. backing the scope off to the minimum x and just holding over.... and if you look straight above the target to that snow covered mountain at the top, that is where the cross hairs were
