This project has taken a lot longer to get to this point than I expected it to, but I am very pleased with the performance.
I was able to shoot this clone 10-22/MOA handgun (chambered in 22lr) for the first time this fall, but it wasn't feeding correctly.
In spite of that it was shooting lights out at 50 and 100 yards.
Hunting, holidays and winter time have kept me busy.
The weather has been good the past two days, and I had time to run out and do some shooting. I had three different boxes of ammo. I zeroed it at 100 yards, standing, shooting off of a tripod table that was not completely stable.
Got it zeroed and wrote down the MOA for drop and drift.
Then we begin to guess (we were just having fun) at how much MOA it would take to get to 200 yards, then to 300, and then to 400 yards.
We went from one brand of ammo to the next in the midst of this, and all three brands were shooting great.
A local game warden (He is the one I called about the goose") was there and put three in one elongated hole (sub 1/4 MOA) at 100 yards.
First time he had ever shot it-He was happy for sure. He also shot it at 200 with very consistent hits.
My spotter, (Miles) shot it also and hit with relative ease at 200 yards on steel.
When I got on steel at 400 yards Chuck (Mac's Gunworks) called a center hit and I quickly sent another. Tried a third shot but it had jammed.
Those two shots measured 1.5" at 400 yards.
Chuck also told me I had 4 shots at 300 around 2"
Spotting was done with 5-22 NXS scope that was mounted on a custom 7mm SAUM Rifle, and a Leupold 12-40 spotting scope
By the time we got the fire shell out conditions had changed.
There were about 8 people in all out there this afternoon shooting.
Action is a MOA clone 10-22 action that Rich makes http://www.moaguns.com/
Barrel is a threaded Green Mountain.
Laminated stock is one of Rich's. Just put a quick finish on it.
Will round off some of the lines in the future.
Picatinny rail by Rich.
Scope is Leupold VX-3 LR/T 6.5-20 With ART Reticle.
The ART Reticle made it so easy to get on target with, and make quick adjustments trying to get the MOA correct when making 100 yard jumps.
I should have chronoed the ammo, and had an idea of BC, but we were just out having fun. After were finished at distance, I went back to 100, re-zeroed and slipped my dials.
Didn't have time to take it to 500 yards, but don't really see that being an issue given the accuracy we are getting.
Pics are not good, but give you an idea.
I really had fun.
This will be a great wind teaching SP for sure :thumbup:
