Have any of you guys read up on where many international sniper teams are using the 22LR as a simulated trainer for real world 308 tactical use? I forget the percentage offhand, but there's supposed to be a pretty consistent relationship in drop and holds, etc. Granted the 308 may not be the ruler in that category nowawdays, but still the concept is pretty interesting! One country has a full 1/3rd scale (if I recall correctly) training facility setup where all the shots are taken w/ 22LRs to simulate full caliber distances. My Club just started 100 and 200-yard benchrest and offhand competitions for 22LRs and some of the results are astounding! It is also bringing out NEW shooters - so that's a plus too! A new 22LR-built AR began turning heads when it beat out all of the Anshultz and Win 52s and other 'older' premium 22LR target rifles, like 40XBs and the like. That is until I finally pulled an old Ballard single shot Schuetzen rifle out of the safe and used that to beat the AR! Haha, looks like sometimes 1890s technology can compete with the latest & greatest barrel-tuned mojo rifle of the year build ... and but of course the stock design rules for offhand use. Offhand at 200-yards ... with a 22 rimfire! ... can humble a person quickly.
