Sorry for the delay. I have been busy training for this up coming race season, so I haven't been keeping a close eye on the thread. Nice rifles Middle Man! How do you like that Burris on your Anschutz?

Really like the XTRII series, have three rifles set up with them. The 5-25 is absolute overkill on the Anschutz (overkill never fails, right). It was a bit of a challenge to get mounted. Also, I was a bit skeptical about the SCR style reticle at first (I run GB2's or older style mildots elsewhere), but I got comfortable with it quickly in actual use.

Nice to see this up and running again ! I blame V1 for stoking and kindling my hidden obsession with ultimate rimfire accuracy . Shooting has become so much more enjoyable spending my invaluable time at the range and not down in the reloading room . My Trigger time has quadrupled in the last couple years , and my wallet has had quite a workout . Yes being at the mercy of the manufactures ammunition can be maddening , but all the testing is still trigger practice .

Still have the CZ , and will get it warmed up for a new set of 6 x 5 V 3 . And I will for fun see what my ARA Unlimited can do .

While testing flash hole diameters in 223, ended up with some left over aimpoints.
Rather than waste them, sent a box of Hornady 17 gr vmax. Sub-moa average at 100 yards.
Actually pretty good results with wind from my 8 at 10 to 16 mph.
CZ 455 Varmint, set trigger, Lilja 17 hmr barrel on a cheap set of bags.
Mueller 8-32X44 Target reticle

0.856 inch/0.818 moa average for the 6 groups
Best group 0.625 inches/0.597 moa.



With the chronograph out front, the box of 50 had the best results
from a box of 17 hmr in my last 3 deliveries.
2609 fps low, 2772 fps high and an average of 2714 fps.
Not match quality, but decent hunting ammo.

Okay, got some center X and shot it before and after bedding this into a tacticool. I the same accuracy result as with Norma match before changing the stock and a marked improvement after putting it into the pillared and bedded Tacticool. I think the difference is simply that the ergonomics of the new stock just work better for me. Regardless of the reason, I'm quite happy with the results as I am still running a factory CZ barrel. There will be a bit more testing with both Norma and CenterX to settle on what this thing is going to eat full time but it's going the right direction!

Did you try it with and without the can? Just curious if it made a difference. I have heard that it does and does not from different shooters.

First crack at this. Inconsistent on my part, and missed the wind change here and there. Ruger 10/22T, Kidd trigger, EGW rail, and Leupold 3.5-10x40 Mil Ret/MOA turrets.

I have shot it with and without the can through most of my ammo testing over the last year (15 or so diff types) and found no measurable difference as long as I clean the can every 250rds or so. I had this can on a pistol for a weekend of goofing around, put about 500 rds through it and then put it on the rifle and I saw about a 1/4" shift in POI and the groups opened up a little.

Been quiet here for a while, so here's a new entry. I'd imagine there will be quite a few to come from all the new Vudoo's around here in the near future that will knock this 6x5 way down the ladder.

6 group average of .256"
Sure wish I could have that second group back!

Vudoo v-22
Nightforce 7-35 Mil-C
AAC Element II
SK Rifle Match
50 yd. bipod w/ rear bag

Tnshoot, nice shooting. I have you on the results. I am looking forward to seeing how all the V-22 rifles do, I am expecting some small groups! I have a few more months before my barrel will be ready before I can get back in the ring and start mixing it up with you guys, getting anxious!

Went out this morning with the temperature around 34* with 5-9 MPH breeze. It was kind of cold. This target shooting is really difficult. I need to figure out how to stop the heartbeat when aiming. LOL

Target is 55 yards away. Ammo was SK Rifle Match. Scope is Razor HD LH 3-15x42 with G4 BDC reticle set at 15x. The center floating dot would just cover the 1/8" target dots.







Flyer on first target on top left was the first shot and might be from a cold barrel. The flyer on the last target is due to choking. :)

Beautiful range Fret! Get me some group sizes and I will add you to the results! Also is that a Fortner action, maybe a 1727? Would love to see more pics and more 6X5's from that rifle!

Thanks, I had to thin out a lot of trees and remove the stumps to dig that backstop. I don't think these groups are good enough to add to your results though. I need a lot more practice to get better.

Yeah, it's a 1727. Got it a few months ago and it sure is a lot of fun. I should shoot my other gun more but I seem to always grab the Fortner every time. LOL

Up to you, but feel free to add as many contributions as you want, whenever you better a result Ill remove your previous so only your best will show (with that particular rifle).

I can see why you always grab the 1727, it is dead sexy! I look forward to more targets from it!

Love the range and the weather!
