Meh; Bangity Ed.

Bullseye practice: .22 rimfire, open sight S&W Model 17, 6" barrel, with Winchester bulk-pack cartridges. 50' slow fire.


Not terrible, but not great. I don't seem to do as well on an indoor range as I do outdoors. The last time I seriously shot this gun at a match, one of the other shooters said that I was using ammunition that I had swept up off of the floor at a range. Probably because he was shooting match-grade stuff (and I whomped his ass).

The nice thing about the range is that, if I'm the only shooter and if I have a weapon properly equipped, they'll let me switch off the range lights and do some low-light practice.

50 feet?

Nice.

Yep, I corrected the post to add the distance parameter.

I'd like to get them all into the black, though. If I can consistently break 80, I'll fee as though I'm getting somewhere.

I run about 475 in Bullseye...

Not quite there, but I don't practice as often as I should.



Comrade Misfit said...

Oh. I run about 755 with that gun.

Do you think you might have a tight chamber?

I was talking in a 600 match

Comrade Misfit said...

Ah. My club shoots a 900 match.

Comrade Misfit said...

w3ski,

Could be. But then I'd have to take the trouble to number all of the chambers and then shoot groups from each. Sounds like work. ;)
