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?

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?
Just a wondering

I was talking in a 600 match

Comrade Misfit said...

Ah. My club shoots a 900 match.

Comrade Misfit said...


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. ;)
