    This is sounding more and more like a worthwhile proposition. 1530 fps is more than what I would ask for (but I wouldn't complain about) although for 200 yds it can only help.

    Then there is the possibility of shooting heavier boolits if one had a faster twist rifle which I just so happen to have. Three of them actually. Those being TOZ-17's. Well, two TOZ 17's and a TOZ 17-1. These have 14 inch twist.

    Sure. Schuetzen ranges were always 200 yards.

    I think the Short rifles were more likely to be found in the winter indoor shooting games, though. What with that short little bullet, the B.C. would be horrible.

    I bought the little .22 reloader kit from that .22 Reloader outfit.
    I also bought 3 packs of the primer compound.
    Kind of bought it for the novelty of it, don't know if I will ever mess with it or not.

    Ditto. I want to be able to reload .25 Stevens RF, because it's long obsolete and ammo is going for $2.00 a round. Haven't done anything with it yet, either. I plan to make a tool to centrifuge the compound into the rims, but so far the round tuit has eluded me.

    Evidently everybody also had 20-10 vision then too.

    Find you a nice clear spot in the high desert and have some long range fun with a .22.

    I have never used the 22 for anything other than close work, Iím very interested to try the 22 at range that I would normally use 223, I will find out my limitations with my 10/22. It will prolly be a hoot!

    One thing shooting .22 at even 100 taught me is that I'm a lousy wind-doper.

    FYI ... NRA 22 BPCR match rules only allow 22 ammunition to be used that does not exceed the FPS of commercial brands
    My reloads would be the ‘ real definition’ of 22 BPCR matches ... 4.5grs of Swiss Null-B at 1230 FPS

    When I was stationed at NAS Fallon, I bought a CZ-452. I could still see clearly then. I quickly found out that the range adjustable rear sight worked at least out to the 125 yard line.

    Match accurate? Probably not. Plastic pop bottle plinking accurate? Most definitely yes.

    It got me thinking about just when Americans forgot about being able to adjust iron sights easily for range.

    I was able to get to the range this weekend and shoot the G2 Contender at 50 yards. Accuracy was 1" at 50 with the 42gr FP with 1.8gr and 2.0gr of Bullseye .The lighter 37gr HP did not shoot very good- 2" at 50 yds, wind was 10-15 MPH . The harder I drove the 42gr FP accuracy seemed to improve.
