Music to my ears.....I have a ton of different ammo I can try once the rifle gets in. Probably 2 cases of CCI. But I hear CCI is really dirty and prone to carbon ring????????

Could be true about the carbon ring. I don't know for sure, because I mainly shoot the SK Long Range through it now. I just had a bunch of different .22 ammo sitting around and I would try different stuff when I first got the rifle. The CCI works great in my S&W M&P 22.

Sweet! I have a nearly identical setup with the Ridgeback stock. You will be more than happy
I’ve been shooting it in a t4-a for a bit now. And you are right it really does make me happy they are a lot of fun.

I'm in pretty much the same boat as 7mMike - all four of my Bighorn comp rifles are in T4A stocks, and my 1st V-22 was also, only with an Elite shell. I put a 2nd V-22 (22" Kukri) in a PRS1 in GAP camo, then decided I really wanted a PRS1 in scorched earth for the Kukri, which was done in sniper gray. So when that new PRS1 stock finally arrived a couple of weeks ago, I put the GAP PRS1 off the Kukri on the 'old original' V-22, and set the T4A aside. Was hoping to shoot a local match with that rifle this weekend to get a feel for the PRS1, but it's looking like I'm going to have to stay home to get some rain-delayed farm work done. At the rate things have been going in that respect, I may be lucky to get to shoot one match this summer....

There's a photo of the Kukri in the scorched earth PRS1 - which I'm probably going to send back to Manners to have a spacer installed, since I ordered it with a 1/2" pad, which resulted in a 13" LOP... Ordered it online (1st & probably last time I do that), and had no idea going with a 1/2" pad would result in the 13" LOP. Better to speak with a live person when ordering a custom stock, in order to avoid unpleasant surprises when the stock arrives. It's sometimes hard to reach anyone at Manners on the phone, or I'd never have used their online order form.

I have a Manners PRS2 mini chassis and I really like the feel and flat bottom of the PRS stocks....just ordered another PRS2 mini chassis this morning from a Manners dealer that had the stock in inventory. I have an Impact barreled action in the works and a Vudoo barreled action I received last week - immediate perceived need:)….I may buy a chassis one day but really like the Manners PRS stocks....

I’m digging the prs1 just messing with it last night. But would I replace all my t4a’s with prs1 probably not.

Got my V22 in AIAT folding chassis. My first impression.... "wow". Gun is easy to shoot well. Shot the SK+ std very well. If you are on the fence about AI AT, go for it! and get the folder so you can get the thumb rest. Really nice rest.

The bolt is sticking a little, but from what I have read, it should smooth out. I will keep shooting it as is for the next few hundred rounds and see what happens. Can't wait to get some 6x5 targets up.

We are working on making the cheek piece universal but we do have on for the AX. Click Here
Thanks. So, are you working on a cheek rest that will fit the current AT back end? Or is this specific for the AX back end.

I did find that the cheek riser is still a little high (factory folding AT) even on the lowest setting with my medium height burris xtreme rings.

Some SK Standard at 100 yards. Top 1 o’clock was first shot then made my adjustments shooting cross ways from the target. Also had the wife hitting steel at 400 but it won’t let me upload the video. She doesn’t shoot much at all but was having fun I could tell

Wow that’s a good group with yellow box, mine is a mess with that ammo but she loves some Center x for sure. I just bought a few boxes of sk red to try that out..

Yeah the yellow box is all I’ve shot for sk ammo. But it seems like it doesn’t have a problem with it.

I shot some the other day as I have a brick of them still and the group was 5 inches. Went back to Center x and it was a dime.

Just curious, is having ur thumb on that side of the grip comfortable to shoot?
For me, it is. Supposedly if you shoot long days, hour after hour, it is even more comfortable. I started shooting my CZ that was in a Xray this way and got used to it. So, for my V22 I wanted the option to do that. Had to go to the folding AIAT to be able to add the aftermarket rest.

SK Std+ may be listed as SK's least expensive ammo, but find a good lot of it that your rifle likes, and it makes you wonder why you'd spend more for 'upper crust' match ammo. It's definitely worth ordering in lot samples to test - if you don't happen to find one out of five lots that shoots really well, you're not out much $$, but if you do find a good lot, what's not to like about ammo that costs less than half what Center-X does, but shoots very nearly as well, at least out to 100yds? I've got good lots of SK LR Match & Lapua Center-X that I'll use in matches out to 300+yds and no doubt my confidence level is higher when shooting the more expensive ammo during a match. But after I found an exceptional lot of Std+ during lot testing earlier this spring, I bought a case of it, and have seen that it shoots really well out of all the custom bbls I have, including ACE, Bartlein, Krieger, Lilja, and a couple of Shilen Ratchet Rifled bbls on CZ457s.

I totally agree with you. I wanna try some other sk ammo just for the hell of it. But for now I got a few bricks of the same lot of the yellow box that’s making me smile every time I squeeze the trigger. No hand loading just buy and shoot.

Yeah Mike - the 'buy & shoot' thing is just one of the reasons I find myself grabbing a .22RF rifle out of the gun closet more often than any of the CF rifles that share space with the .22s. I can shoot 210yds down an old concrete feedlot alley even if it's muddy after a rain, and that's only 200yds from the house. All I shoot is std vel ammo, so I'm not disturbing my cousin, who lives just across the county road - and there are no other neighbors within 2mi of my place. It's just so easy to grab a rifle or three, several boxes of the ammo(s) I'm wanting to shoot with, and a target or two, then get out and get in some quality trigger time. When I'm finished, back in the shop, all it takes is a blast or two of compressed air to blow any RF debris out of the action, a quick wipe with a couple of patches wet with Ed's Red, another dry patch, and I'm done. There doesn't seem to be any limit to the desire I have to shoot with these rifles either - which is a darned good reason to test and then buy in quantity. I'm wishing I'd have bought two cases of this good lot of SK Std+, but then in another month or two, I can order in more lot samples, test, and then buy another case or two of it.

What I really should do is make some props like tank traps & maybe even a rooftop barricade, then get one of the shorter (20') conex containers to store props & targets in, and get set up to practice positional shooting instead of just shooting off a bench.

Having the ability to not have to travel to shoot is a blessing. I wish I could get 100 yards, 200 yards would be super fantastic. I am able walk 20 yards from my door and shoot.

Highly recommended. I did that with Center-X.
I will. Right now, I'm just getting to know my V22 and the trigger. Once I'm more confident in my shooting, I will start testing. As it stands, it is shooting SK+ and SK rifle match well. I think for the cost savings, I will stick with these, although I have some CenterX, midas and R50.

Not going to post to the 6x5 yet, since I'm still getting comfortable with this gun, but here are some groups I shot yesterday. Can you see the grin? These are with SK+.

The gun sits in an AIAT, 18" Kukri and TT

For those shooting a Vudoo in an AI AT chassis wgich action torque specs did you use. The Ai recommend 53 in/lbs or Vudoo recommended 65 in/lbs? Or something completely different.

Took the plunge today!! Ordered the MPA Comp, 20 Kukri, TT Diamond. Now the wait begins. The very short wait time sealed the deal after a phone call to Vudoo today. All parts for my build are in stock, Should have it in my hands in 2 weeks! 😎
Now to quickly make the final optics decision.

I'm starting to get some cold bore fliers, so it's time to scrub the chamber. Will hoppes #9 and a nylon brush do the trick or is there a better product and method?

From my experience I believe there is a better way. This is what I use. It does a fantastic job and it quick "compared to other methods". If you have questions just ask.

You use the JB paste? I remember reading a while back that one of the match barrel makers will not honor their warranty if you scrub their barrels with a cutting paste.

Boretech has a product similar to JB but they say their product does not remove any metal and you can use it everyday if you wish. I bought this mainly because I read that you can damage a barrel if you don't know what you are doing with JB or Iosso. This is all from reading, not personal experience.

I have heard that many times from the Clique on RFC. (if one clique member said his shit didn't stink the other clique members would agree)

I have used JB for years and have never damaged a barrel. JB is not abrasive, ISSO is not abrasive, I have that too. ISSO is more of a polish than anything else. Besides, in this application the JB is only going into the chamber, not into the rifling. I have used JB in all my guns including my three Anschutz rifles.

People will have to use their own judgment on what and what not to use for cleaning. Personally the JB works fantastic for me and I would highly recommend it. Just as I would Sweet's 7.62, a lot of people I hear don't like that.

I have a similar experience with those people over there.
If you listen to those over on Rimfire Feminist Central, who bark the loudest, you will find that they are the ones with practically no useful knowledge of a projectile in flight. But they can tell you how you should clean a barrel. They can call BS on things that they know absolutely 0 about.

Yes, I'm afraid it's true, over on the Feminist Forum, you will see this daily . " With X brand of ammo, my gun will bla bla bla , all day long."
" If I do my part."
My questions have always been , " what happens if you're doing your part wrong? And : Did you get behind that gun to not do your part? And: What part are you doing that is your part, that you're supposed to do, that you might not be doing?

This is usually the " part" where they start screaming " Troll" while typing something snide and reaching for the polygrip to adhere the false teeth at the same time.

Meanwhile, other members of this notable clique, start chiming in with advice. They are known as the benchrest shooters. Not a single one of them have ever won or placed in a single Nationally sanctioned event. But they can tell you how to do it. And what you are doing wrong. At the other end of the spectrum, what you're doing wrong, is listening to them.

Here is a short list of the EXPERT advice given over there -----

1. Your .22 will shoot better when there is some wind. - REPORTED BY Some guy from Austrailia who claims to have won a national benchrest competition " in groups" Not aggregates. He was so insignificant that I don't remember his name.

2. You should not shoot CCI standard velocity ammo in an Anschutz gun. - The Infamous PenageGuy

3. A tuner will completely CURE cold bore flier problems. - Lee

4. Every single 22 long rifle accuracy problem that you've ever had, or ever will have, is caused by a carbon ring. - All of the above.

5. The carbon ring is there, even if you can see it. It's still there.------ all of the above.

6. One of my all time favorites purported by many idiots: The accuracy bell curve applies to guns and barrels, but not .22 ammunition. ---------------ThomasConner

7. use a wooden dowel, so it can get stuck in the barrel when it splinters off into the rifling and gets stuck in there with whatever else is stuck in there. ------------need I say more?

8. Shooting at night for extreme accuracy in 0 wind conditions : " Oh he must be shooting in the land of the midnight sun" how can he see anything? This came from the brilliant geniuses who have never heard of Thomas Edison. Or LED lighting. Or a lighted range.-----SmoothTrigger and minimouse.

9. Parallax correction when shooting for extreme precision is a waste of time and makes no difference. This one was supported by the infamous Admin, ---- Granny from the Beverly Hillbillies. AND a suspension was given when someone pointed out that this dumb shit was completely wrong, and backed it up with SCIENCE. ------- He was an idiot. Idiots are hard to remember.

10. AMENDMENT: Steve Boelter is the president of Anschutz North America. Steve and I know each other over the many years on the net. He is a fine gentleman whom I respect as a person. HE IS NOT president of Anschutz. Danny Spann is CEO of Anschutz North America. Also a fine gentleman. The PARROTS OVER THERE parroted this over and over and over.

These things are often PARROTED by the self proclaimed experts over there. I am not making any of this up.
You can't make this up. It's impossible.

T.S. - There are many things that can go wrong in ones life from day to day , remaining a member in good standing on THAT site is but one of them.

I keep a fresh blue paper shop towel handy when I'm shooting with SK/Lapua .22RF ammo - never used anything else that will wipe fingers any cleaner without using some sort of liquid soap/solvent.

I know what you mean, I don't know which is worse, Lapua or SK. I just wipe my hand off, best I can do if it gets to bad.
