    Is someone else still plinking with these? I saw some old threads, this is a fun way to spend an afternoon if you´re really gonna hit something small at 200+ meters.

    I´m getting 1 1/2" five shot groups now /150. Surprisingly good in my opinion, I just picked up some Super-X and fired away. Estimating the distance gets fun real fast because of the drop.

    This is like MiniGolf, in fact. Compared to 300 grain 338 LM at 1000 meters, you need the same compensation for this at 250 or so when thinking 100 meter zero. My tables aren´t ready yet but it´s something like that anyway, wind is really tough.

    Here´s my CZ:

    Hi Petander, Yep, still planning on some .22rf competitions. I'm going to wait another week or so.I am planning on alternating between 200yds and 300yds.
    It sounds like your gun shoots really well.
    Should be a lot of fun.

    Yeah,these CZ:s shoot nice for the price.

    I took my 338 LM trajectory up to 1500 and this up to 300 for comparision on paper, the compensation for the elevation is almost identical all the way when .22 is zeroed at 75 and 338 at 300.

    Just scale it down,100 is 500, 200 is 1000 and 300 is 1500.

    Like, in halfway (150 yds for 22 or 750 yds for 338 ) both need +13 MOA . And 200 yds for the 22 is about the same as 1000 yds for the 338, needs +23 MOA, at 250 it equals to 1250, needing +37 MOA, 300 is the same as 1500 with +50 MOA...

    I have a + 20 MOA shim,luckily.

    25 yards equals to 125,needing -3.5 MOA, 50 yards needs -2 and that´s equal to 250... goes bad around 100 but not big time... took me a while to compose the BC for the Super-X and figure out the zeros and stuff, this should be pretty close now. This didn´t work out with the 225 trajectory but the 300 is nice.

    Time to print some fun targets soon - and find more Super-X -man, I heard a rumour they aren´t imported anymore because of some "Hollow Point Ammo Ban"... go figure.



    Sometimes I wonder how I´m really doing? [​IMG]

    I want to play! I want to play! I have a kinda old slightly rusty savage MKIILV that still likes to put remington T22's into 1/4" at 50 yards and 3/4" at 100. Admittedly the wind gives me all kinds of hell when I try to keep the groups small at 200. When my scope is cranked all the way up I can see the bullet drop into the target at that range. Kinda cool.

    Any input on how i can make my Norinco JW-15 shoot better? I've floated the barrel and done a little work to the trigger so it breaks like glass, But favored loads are still .75 - 1" at 50y. Anyone know what it would cost for a glass bedding job?
