Been awhile thought I would drop in and say
hi to everyone. Hope all is good.
Mostly good here in central Iowa.
Had a couple of skin grafts done to release
the scar on my back. Now I have matching
"Racing Stripes" on my fat gut!!!!

Picked up a couple new items that make noise.
One will hopefully give the kid some motivation
to do something outside of the video games.

Put together a long range .22LR rifle.
Now need to sight it in and learn Mil-Dot
reticle system.

Also need to work up a nice load for
the Yugo M70 .32. It is enjoyable to run.

That about it. Type at ya'll later.
Arron

Ok, I will bit ....

I never thought I would hear "long range" and "22LR" used together.

I use Mil-Dots reticles for long-range bullet drop compensation successfully for big game hunting for 10+ years by adjusting magnification to tune the mil-dots to 300, 400, 500, and 600 yards with a 2nd focal plane scope.

www.huntingnut.com/ind...ht=reticle

I've been using a Mil-dot 1st focal plane scope for my long-range precision rifle with 0.1 mrad adjustment and lover it.

I'm sure there is lots out there for long-range 22 competition but I'm wondering if a MOA 1st focal plane scope might serve you better.

I would be enjoy following along and learning about your LR 22LR project.

Yeah Slim, its a thing.
400 to 500 yards with .22lr.
Search youtube.
A sure way to reinforce what windage and elevation actually do....

There’s an Aussie extreme distance shooter who shoots .22 rimfire out to 900m...he has plenty of videos on YouTube...4AW Mark and Sam After Work. It’s not just .22 he shoots, he shoots several caliber out to extreme ranges.

Yep, he does some extreme distances with calibres that really surprise me with their ability to shoot those distances.
