    I hadn't thought about the standard velocity ammo. I think I have some, I'll give that a try this afternoon.

    Seems like Academy always has the standard velocity stuff in stock since it won't cycle most auto loaders, it doesn't sell as well. Fine by me, just want to punch holes in paper with this one.

    I never tried standard velocity until the shortage; I've come to prefer it in my bolt actions and SA revolver. It shoots better out to 100yds in my Rem 581 than HiVel. And squirrels, turtles, and rabbits can't tell the difference.

    .22 Ammo?
    Try this on for size:221 Askins V1 A NC Model (1).pdf

    This is based upon contemporary dimensional information from 1935 about the two cartridges drawn.
    I believe both were loaded with .224 diameter Bullets.
    I believe both used Small Pistol Boxer Primers.

    The longer one is said to have developed 760fps MV from a 2" barrel.

    The shorter one helped the developer to win a National championship in 1937. (used in a converted Colt Woodsman semi-auto Pistol.)

    Best Regards,

    Put a steering wheel cover on the little truck and repurposed/recycled the package with a dozen Federal strays. They're all in there at ten paces.
    Fun old single shots indeed.

    This is an old Mauser Trainer, that was another victim of Katrina. It was probably under water for a few weeks, judging by the condition.

    The stock was stained with mildew so bad I couldn't bleach it out. The metal was pitted badly. By the time I got it, it was in the white.

    I bead blasted the metal parts, then parkerized. The stock, I coated with truck bed liner for a textured finish.

    This rifle shoots great, with inexpensive ammo. More accurate than I am, with old eyes and iron sights.

    I have an old single shot that belonged to my grandfather, It is a Quackenbush, made in NY some time around the turn of the century. (1900 )

    It has been to the bottom of the Missouri river and recovered. I have had it since about 1945. Open sights and shoots very well.

    Winchester Model 55

    Here is an odd one that I got when I was 10 years old (1958). It a Winchester Model 55 single shot automatic 22 rifle. Itís top loading and fires from an open bolt position. You load a round thru the top mounted loading gate, after cocking the action. Pushing in the loading gate places the tang safety on SAFE. Slide the safety off and pull the trigger. The rifle ejects out the bottom and recocks itself. Still have it along with the original hang tag. Itís killed many a squirrel and rabbit in its day.

    I would highly recommend the Remington 510. 511, and 512. The 510 goes on safety each time the bolt is opened. Great boys first rifle. The 513 is also good in a target rifle.

    I had a Win 55 when I first came home from service. Back then in Army basic they had a training program with BB guns called Quick Kill. BB guns had no sights and you shot disc had thrown in the
    air. Disc started large and as you progressed smaller disc were used. When I came home was looking
    for a 22 that would be good for this. Win 55 was perfect for this kind of shooting. I husseled several
    bucks on shooting quarters out of the air with it. I had it for a long time until a Win nut made me a
    offer I couldn't refuse. That is one model of Win you don't see often. I think Win 77 semi was off the
    same general design.

    Remington #4 Rolling block, been shooting it for 65 years now. Bought new in 1910 for $6 and passed down through the family.

    My first rifle was a #4 Remington. My father found it rolled up in a blanket at a second hand store and got it for $8 about 1958. It looked like new and had all the color case and blue. My brother and I fought over it for years and I finally found another one to give him and passed mine on to my daughter. I now have one in 32 S&W and two that need to be rebuilt in 22 .

    Two of my favorite .22 single shots ...

    A Maynard 1882 model in .22 Long ...



    ... and a WW Greener baby martini in .22 Long Rifle ...

    I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't reached my "Expiry" date!

    Today is a 'Fun" Range Day Excursion and, among others, I am taking a Stevens 1894 Favorite and a Stevens Marksman both in .22LR. I have two boxes of .22LR Winchester-Western Super X Standard Velocity to use in them.

    Both with Plain Open Iron Sights' so it will be interesting how my 76YO eyes do shooting them.
