Quiet, smooth and puts em right where I want em from 75 feet to 350 yards.
A single shot .22 or a smokepole. Makes a nice leisurely afternoon of shooting.
Plus recoil is practically non existent. Big hunk of lead just makes a pleasing ring when it meets a Steel plate torso.
, small powder charges, relatively quiet.... (still have the other two though.)
Want to have fun, start trying to shoot a 22 LR cartridge at 200+ yards.
Shooting steel at 250 yards with my Tikka T1. The bigger mark is from a 223 from earlier in the day. Hit 6 of 8 shots.
That was a relaxing and enjoyable period of shooting for me. Not the excitement and work of competitive shooting, rather just observing what things could/could not do. Wound up learning a lot from a simple “Hey, feel like shooting this weekend?”
For centerfire guns, I enjoy the CZ 7.62x39mm bolt gun. It recoils little and seems to connect with what I point it.
Shooting the .458 Winchester gives me a feeling of accomplishment. It also gives me a feeling of joint pain.
