Come on, guys. Bust out your 10/22s or 795s or whatever you have and show up for this Sunday's rimfire match.
I just looked through the rimfire gallery and there are tons of weapons shown there that are more than accurate enough for this Sunday's match. Like this one:
That's really good, and that's with Stingers. With a subsonic like Match Target, the groups would be even smaller.
This is also more than enough gun to shoot the match:
This one is smoking with CCI Blazers:
That's ridiculously tight for CCI Blazer. Bring this sucka to the match!
You guys aren't even shooting match ammunition and you're getting very good accuracy. All of these gun/ammo combinations are more than enough to shoot the rimfire match.
If you are looking to get started in precision riflery, this rimfire match is a great way to get your feet wet.
If you guys are wondering what kind of super duper hispeed precision rimfire rigs you will see at this weekend's match, here are some samples from the first CaPRC rimfire match last year.
Typical bolt rifles include this Savage:
Or this CZ:
Here's a Marlin 795:
I shot the match with my Anschutz sporter:
I'm not showing you skid row or anything like that. These are representative of the rifles at the match last year. That looks like a CCI box beside that 795, but most of the shooters shoot Wolf Match Target (very accurate in nearly all guns and cheap at $4.50 a box).
Just bring whatever you have and shoot the match. You can always say your "build" isn't quite ready yet. Ready for what? Just bring a rimfire and shoot the match instead of setting up hurdles for yourself. Even if you finish dead last in the match, you still finished ahead of all of the hispeed big-talkers on the web who didn't shoot the match at all.
I hope to see you at the match this weekend.
