Range results of my new MarkII 22

Well, picked up the firearm from jack over the weekend after cleaning it big time down to every point, I went to the range today.

Went threw 6 different types of ammo it seems to like CCI green tag for sub ammo and CCI mini-mags for standard hi-vol.

For the first time out, I think I did decent with it, cause with more practice this can be a real pee shooter at 20 yards!

This pic here and the 1/8 inch rounds were consistent with a perfect shot. 2 inch strays when I over compensated for recoil...(i was shooting the 45 cal in-between testing.


Over all not to bad, has about a 4 pound trigger pull, I am gonna work on getting that down to a 2 pounder. going to install a VOLQ hammer and sear, compititon trigger and VOLQ barrel comp to help with muzzle flip.

Over all summary.
Great pin point shooter, hands down a silhouette shooter.
cant wait until bench shoot it to see what it really has at 75feet
Today's testing was freestanding 2 hand supported.

Hi:

I was out a GAT on Friday with mine trying to get used to shooting with just one hand. Funny, I was shooting a mix of CCI standard velocity and Remington. The Remingtons seemed to give me better groups. The CCIs also misfed about 4 to 5 times out of 200 CCI rounds. I also had 2 Remington rounds fail to fire out of 200. In either case, it wasn't saying much as I almost never single hand shoot. I was doing OK out to 50', but would out and out miss the target a couple of times per clip at 75'. Mostly by miss timing my drop. I even broke the PVC pipe with a flyer.

Give me a call when you want to go plinking.

hahah thats to funny, yeah one handing this grip thats on here isnt easy.

never the less all guns have there perfered ammo that seems to work good with them, i did get 2 missfires from reminington sub sonic, and a couple jams from it too.

other that that all other ammo fed fine, best groups were from the cci green tag and cci mini mags.
and close 3rd was eley target ammo. which suprised me.

anycase, sounds like a funny time at the range that day...hahaha

and yeah we gotta hook up sometime

I'm surprised you like the mini mags for target. I wouldn't use anything else for .22 hunting, but they do spray around for target. Flat round for a .22. I think it has the highest initial velocity of any .22 out there.

well 2 reason why a supersonic round might outdo a sub sonic round. "POI to what range" closer the target ( withien 25 yards there is only 1/4 differance in a 25 yard distance between sub and high ammo drop rate)

not to mention the high vol would have better penatration at that distance.

also when i do shoot i shoot at a rate of 1 round per 2 seconds for a controled accurate shot..like i did above. basicly any handgun i own or shoot. alotta people shot 1 round per 5-10 seconds which is nothing more then fine paper punching, so the faster cycle time really gives you a gauge to gauge yourself by.

When you say mark II are you talking about the ruger mark II pistol?

I have a 1969 mark I ruger pistol.

For what it's worth, I was confusing the MiniMag with the Stinger. There is a large difference between the 2. Were you talking about the Stinger? The MiniMag runs out around 1260fps from a 20" barrel and 1150 from a 5.25. That's about the same as a Remington HV. The Stinger runs out around 1650fps and 1550 respectively. The Stinger is clearly supersonic for a ways, but the Minimag and the HV are just flirting it with depending on temp and humidity out of the barrel. While I couldn't find the drop differences between the Stinger and the Minimag, the Minimag only drops 3.25" at 100 yards. A round running at 200fps slower only dropped an additional .1". 50 to 75 feet is point blank range with either round. I don't think you can see a difference. For paper punching, pick the round that is most consistant for you and your weapon.
On the other hand, I absolutely agree with you on using the Stinger if I want to kill something. I used to poach (with a local farmer's permission) a deer about every 8 to 10 weeks while in school to keep the "corn fed" meat supply up. I always used a .22. I always used a Stinger. I always put a round between the eyes. I never took more than one round. Average range was 50 to 75 yards. Never sell a Stinger short at close range. My only problem was that I was "deathly" allergic to deer dander. I'd kill it and make my roommates skin it. Then I could get back into the act.

BTW, I have about 4 50' targets with similar 20 round (2 clip) groupings. A few in the 1" ring, most in the 2" ring and a couple of flyers.

I never measured one, but I've handled them side by side. I'm sure it has to be. I think they just pack it with a real hot, fast burning powder.

It may be an antique but it really does shoot well, I dont have any complaints. Plus it was my dads, so I'll hang on to it. I would like to get another 22 though at some point.

Jeeze, will you look at the size of that thing. I don't know Ken, I've never shot pistol with anything other than irons. I don't view pistols as a long range weapon so a scope doesn't fit my mindset. On the other hand, I'm always open to new ideas. If you feel like it, drag it down to Mega when we get together. Who knows if it will strike my fancy, but don't hold on to it for me.

Well, it isn't a scope per say, I don't think there is a magnification factor. But what it does do is put a nice red dot where the round is going. I took that pistol squirrel hunting with my brother once and let me tell you. He was aiming and trying to shoot them with his 22 rifle with an iron peep site. I was plink'n them like it was a target gallery. One of the best times. I got 4 squirrels that day, and yes, my brother ate them.

Hey, pan fried tree rats with scrambled eggs are good for breakfast.

So, do you know how to bark a squirrel?

BTW, try adding Pachmeyer (sp?) grips to the Ruger vs. the stock grips. I think the soft rubber grips are a big improvement. Then again, the right handed thumb rest makes me bonkers and the Pachmeyer doesn't have it so I'm bound to like it.
