    Need help finding the right ammo to shoot with my Savage MK ll BTVSS 22 LR - 1/16 twist / BBL.

    What would be the top three ammo's for this rifle to shoot 200 yrds off hand "Schuetzen". I have read Eley, Wolf, Federal Gold Medal, & RWS. How would you rate these for this rifle. I know I would have to find what it likes best but in which order do you feel I would find the best accuracy. As many of you know this ammo is very limited and highly expensive compared to a few years ago. I have tried the CCI standard velocity 40 gr stuff which is good enough for practise but need something more consistant.


    Thanks for any help.

    For practice, Wolf. For competition, the highest level Eley or Lapua.

    However, wind is going to be your biggest enemy, Wolf might perform just as well at 200 because of that.
