I bought one in March from them. They had been out of them for a few months prior to that also. It seems that they get about 10 to 12 in at a time and when they're out it takes awhile to get them back in.I really need to try a tuner on mine. Does anyone know if the PRXIII tuner is still being made? It has been out of stock at Killoughs forever
That is not the case with really any ammo, but especially rimfire. MV variations may not show up at shorter ranges but will at longer, holds true with both centerfire and rimfire. But more so with rimfire there will be just a general accuracy potential difference with a particular ammo and range combination. Your rife may prefer Center X @ 50 Yards but Eley Match at 100 yards, and something completely different at 200 yards. I do not completely understand why this occurs, but it seems to hold true. So test ammo at a particular distance and re-test at a different distance.what i don't understand is how Eley Match can do better at 100m than at 50m compared to other ammo types ? In my head if an ammo has an inherent "accuracy" of x MOA then it should always be x MOA (so long as we are not talking about pushing the range out to the near vertical end part of parabola. ) ?
I didn't believe it before i experienced it but i see the different results when i shoot with different ammos at different ranges - don't understand why it is happening - more research neededThat is not the case with really any ammo, but especially rimfire.

thanks for the support ! I've 2200 rounds on the barrel now, i can see that putting a couple of building blocks in the ground has helped - much more consistent than shooting with the bipod and rest in the vegetation !By my calculations your 1st 6 groups averaged 0.750 MOA, which IMP is pretty damn good! So don’t beat yourself up just yet. You drastically improved in both the best group and the average, keep in mind you cant be comparing group size in inches vs most everyone else in this thread because you are shooting almost 10 yards more, it matters.
Second you just bought the rifle and probably don’t have that many rounds on it, some rimfire rifles need a little time before they start showing their potential. I have had custom barrels from the best in the business not come into their own until after 500-800 rounds, factory barrels can be a little longer.
Last (without getting into fundamentals), there is a bit of a trend I see that I would be watching very close based on your targets. Your groups show more vertical than horizontal on average with the different brands of ammo you have shot. This could be the ammo, but I would look very close at thermals or head winds and tail winds on your range. Just a few MPH at 100M can give you an inch of vertical dispersion VERY easily.

Really nice shooting JB. That VuDoo is starting to sing at 50y.I was able to get the Vudoo out today. I was lucky the winds were calm for me at 50 yards but the started picking up at 100 and even more so at 200 plus the mirage got bad.
I forgot that I had been shooting SK Pistol last week which has a 0.5 mil higher zero than center x and I still had that dialed on the scope when I shot the cold bore at the bottom right target. I almost shit my pants when I saw the 1st round about 0.6 mil high!! I had just cleaned the barrel and have been watching my cold bore & cold clean bore POI shift lately. It has been very consistent and I thought something was up until I put 4 more down range and then saw 0.5 dialed on the turret. It goes to show, pay attention to the basics. Check your scope, don’t just assume...
50 yards with Center X, 70f and almost no wind.

100 yards Center X 2-3 mph switching winds

200 yards Center X 5-8 mph switching winds with a lot of mirage, so much I could not see bullet holes in my scope or my spotting scope so I just tried to shoot in a consistent wind condition based on the mirage, it didn’t work out so well...

I was lucky to find this old rifle in an estate auction. It is in pristine condition and the bore looks new. Clearly had been well cared for. The trigger is heavy but crisp. I have only shot it three times and am still trying to figure out what ammo it likes. I have a buddy who swears his M75 likes Winchester Wildcat22 ammo best. I just bought a brick of it to try but am not going to hold my breath. I have a few other iron sight rifles that could maybe do this. Might get some of them out now that cooler temps are starting to arrive.Irish, beautiful old Winchester! Very nice shooting too. I have an old Weatherby my dad bought new in the early 60’s that I have almost shot a 6X5 with irons several times. This just may be the inspiration I need to dust it off...

Was in a groove this morning. Figured I would shoot if 6 by 5. First try at it. If it wasn't for that one group in the middle it would have been much better. Seems like it's always one group or one shot they really keeps you out of the prestigious range.
