My 1-4x24 just isn't cutting it on the .22lr AR for target work. My shooting buddy is running a 1-6x24 and kicking my ass so I can't have that, so I cranked it up to 7. :lmao: I still wanted something compact and light, so a big hulking scope was out of the question.

New printer stuff from Canada.

I want to get into printing carbon and glass filled filaments but they are abrasive and will ruin a standard brass nozzle rather quickly. Hardened steel nozzles are the usual upgrade but they are only 75% as efficient at conducting heat as a brass nozzle. Then I found these tungsten carbide nozzles that are even more wear resistant than steel and have the same thermal efficiency as brass so you don't have to crank the print temps up to compensate for thermal loss.

I sold the long range scope off my 10/22, and put that money towards an upgrade for it.

Athlon Midas TAC HD 6-24x50 APRS3 MIL. Ordered from Ty at MK Machining and he throws in his low-profile billet level and a throw lever. Great company to deal with, and I love their scope levels.

It still counts as a hit regardless of what angle it comes in at. :mrgreen: Seriously though, .22lr at longer range is great training for larger calibers. You can get consistent hits out to about 300yds. BUT, you better have your DOPE game on point. The big thing is I just shoot .22s, a LOT. It's cheap, its fun, no ear pro needed with a can so you can BS with your spotter/buddy, and they're damned accurate with a little work. So the gun I shoot the most gets the nicest glass.

Here is a comparison of .22lr vs .308 as far as drop is concerned, and obviously the wind wreaks havoc with the little .22 rounds so it helps you learn wind holds, and what X mph wind looks like in your scope (how the grass is moving, etc).

These are in MOA and comparing the relative drop

22lr 40gr. .075bc 1040fps / .308win 165grSST .447bc 2600fps

22lr drop .308
50yds 0 = 100yds
75yds 2.8 = 175yds
100yds 8.3 = 240yds
125yds 17.6 = 315yds
150yds 30.8 = 380yds
175yds 47.3 = 450yds
200yds 68.7 = 510yds
225yds 92.5 = 560yds
250yds 123.9 = 630yds
275yds 158.2 = 690yds
300yds 199.9 = 770yds
325yds 248.8 = 820yds
350yds 304.8 = 880yds
375yds 367.9 = 940yds
400yds 437.6 = 987yds

cool. If I ever get good enough to shoot MOA at 100 yards, maybe I'll give long range .22 a try. :D

Well, to be perfectly honest, my 10/22 build isn't MOA at 100. But I knew it wouldn't be as I made a compromise on barrel weight vs. accuracy. I've had the 12lbs heavy barrel 10/22. They're great, but really limit the role of it to a bench rest only gun IMHO. But if your rifle is 2MOA at 100, it should still be roughly 2MOA at 300, which is fine. You just have to plan your targets accordingly. If you regularly shoot a 2MOA average, then use a 4MOA target (or larger) so you can still get hits, calculate your margin of error miss wise, and have fun at longer range in the wind. USPSA/IPSC torso targets are 18x30 inches, we run the 2/3 target for longer range, which is 12x20 for our 300yd target, which is exactly 4MOA wide. There's a reason you'll never see a PRS match with 1MOA targets at longer ranges, even for unobtanium centerfire builds. "thumbsup"

It's not my gun that limits my accuracy. :mrgreen:

I'm a lousy shot. If I can get 3" groups at 100 yards with my 308 AR, I'm having a great day.

Unless you spent a LOT of money on that big bore AR, and are feeding it high dollar ammo, then that's about right honestly. I'm a pretty decent shot with a rifle, and can put down sub MOA groups if the tool is capable of it. My M5E1 is guaranteed sub MOA, but I've yet to find the load it likes to accomplish that. In my mind, it's a battle rifle (and one of my favorites to shoot I might add) unless you're spending around $3-5k for a precision gas gun build. She'll still make the steel ring at long range, or put meat on the table just fine though. "thumbsup"

Iíve got an old Butler Creek (I think) bull barrel on my 10/22. A fist sized group at 100 yards all day.

I think the big issue with my gun is the barrel I chose. I chose a barrel that could shoot 7.62 NATO and 308, which means the headspace is a little loose for 308. It shoots cheap 7.62 NATO rounds more accurately than my high dollar 308 hunting ammo. I can do 3 MOA with the 7.62. I'm sure a better shooter can pull it into 2 MOA or tighter. With my 308 hunting ammo, it opens up to about 3-4 MOA. With all of the other 308 I tried, it was 4-6 MOA.

I probably should have gone with a 308-only barrel, but I wanted to be able to shoot the cheap NATO stuff at the range, and since there's nowhere in my area to hunt deer past 70-80 yards, I was perfectly fine with this level of accuracy. The fact that I can shoot both types of ammo, and that it's a stainless barrel so I don't have to worry about cleaning it if I hunt in the rain still made it well worth it.

That said, it's definitely not a sub-MOA barrel like the Internet said it was, at least not with 308. With 7.62 hand loads, maybe.

BC have been in the 10/22 game since the beginning I think, and they're definitely G2G. "thumbsup"

Agreed on all points. Haven't ran mine enough to tell yet. Too damned expensive to feed it $2 per round ammo to find out what it likes best.:mrgreen: I will say at 150yds and in, try the Privi Partizan 168gr BTHP ammo. Mine stacks it pretty damned good for about $.70rd.

HPIguy, quit messing with that old school rimfire stuff and step up to the modern, hipper, younger brother of 22LR; the 17 HMR. This is at 100 yards from a bone stock other than the stock Savage:

^^Oooooooh, best mm!! Both of those are great looking pieces, congrats! The .17 is great little round, but it ruins the whole point for us, which is getting in our trigger time and being able to go through a brick of ammo and never notice it in the wallet. "thumbsup"

You can reload almost anything. But once you factor in your time, and hazmat & shipping fees if you live in podunk as I do, there's very little savings on most of the popular calibers. The advantage though is you can fine-tune handloads that are tack drivers for each of your guns. I have a ton of reloading stuff, I've never reloaded the first round yet.

I've long ago grown tired of cheapo chinesium off center bore site systems, so I caught a sale and snagged one of these. The way they work, and being able to use their software to print up a sighting target for any gun, with any optic height, with any ammo including handloads is great. The scope leveler is just icing on the cake.
