My Mark IV and different Loads and barrels.

I took the crowd out today and played a little with loads and accuracy. Off the bench, at 25 yards with the 10 inch barrel I had little problems keeping all rounds inside of 2 inches.

I then shot the 5.5 inch barrel with iron sights at an 8 inch Shoot & See target keeping all shots within 6 inches firing from the sitting position free hand. ( I am either in my wheelchair or sitting when I shoot because I still don't have any upper body strength ( Working On It Though ).

Next came the Bronze setup with the C-More. Again 25 yards but this time I kept then all inside of 5 inch shooting as soon as the dot hit the center of the target.

I tried CCI-Blazer ( The Hottest Loads I had ) Tac 22, and CCI-SV. All groups well). I could see how much my Carolina Crusher Muzzle Brake was working, with all the smoke being deflected straight up but I could really feel the difference in recoil between the Tac 22s, SVs and Blazers.

Next match I think I'm going to use either the SVs or my remaining stash of Eley Club. They shoot better than the SV but I've had a few light sounding loads over the past few months. All bullets did clear the barrel but it makes me worry. It may have just been one box.

That's a great ensemble you have, AzShooter!

You've assembled a pretty awesome rimfire shooting system there, AzShooter!

From what you've posted, every possible combination appears to be delivering excellent results, and I wish I could have a combo like that!

Here's wishing you all the best in your shooting endeavors --- I'll touch base with you if I ever have to set up a Ruger rimfire for maximum accuracy.

Cheers, my friend!

I love gun control. It lets me hit what I'm shooting at!
