    That’s fantastic for 100y. May I ask what ammo you were using? I couldn’t zoom in enough on your pictures to read your notes.

    thanks I shot SK Pistol Match and SK Rifle Match with a stock CZ 452 American and a Weaver T36 scope. I have cleared the front fore arm and installed a Yo Dave trigger kit to get down to 1 pound of pull. Home made bench and a Rock BR front rest, I redid the rest to make it a lot smoother, and installed a Protektor front bag and use a Protektor rear bag. I shot in the Blackhills National Forest, we don't have a range in our area, and u have to take everything with u to target shoot. Set up is a half hour and normally I shot new ammo thru my Caldwell G2 Chronograph to keep tabs on the FPS the each rifle likes.

    Very nice rifle, beautiful scenery there.
    I like the bench too.
    I have that same tripod for my spotting scope.

    Very nice groups and rifle to boot! Having to set up at a distant place \ range is a bummer but it looks like it was worth it. Now you got me thinking...when was the last time I shot 22 lr at 100 hrs ???

    Nice shooting!.... I'll admit to never shooting a 22LR at 100 yds..... I probably would have by now if I hadn't picked up a 22 Hornet about 21 years ago. That's what became my 100 or so down to about 50 yd. woodchuck gun and I never got around to stretching the 22 LR much past 50 yards. Nowadays I don't chuck hunt much anymore and last year picked up a CZ 455 in 22 LR and have yet to try that at anything past 50 yards. Been seeing other threads about longer range 22LR shooting and now this one has me itching to see what I can do with that CZ and a few other .22's at 100 yds.. It's all pretty interesting; thanks for posting your experiences.

    One of my favorite things to do used to be shooting subsonic 22 at 150-200 yards after a fresh snow. If the light is just right you can watch the bullets fly through the scope.

    That is some really nice shooting, especially with a .22 rim fire cartridge.

    Nice shooting.
    100 is fun, 240 is giggles.
    We shoot a steel plate match 25 to 240yds Last stage is five 8" plates at 240yds prone. Makes you giggle when you drop them.

    Nice shooting indeed. I have two rifles I need to sight in, hopefully next week and can only hope to get some groups that good. I have had some lucky 100 yard shots with a .22lr before. I managed to hit two beer bottles with open sights using a Marlin Model 60, convinced my best friend to go buy a 22lr right after that.

    A few weeks ago I tried 8" gongs at 220 yds with my 455. I only have a 4x scope on it and I'm using Aguila SD ammo. Not the best setup for that range but I managed to hit those gongs about half the time. My hearing isn't real good but my buddy was calling the hits. If the bullets weren't kicking up dirt on the berm behind the gong I assumed I hit it. That's how I got the hold over, it's a bunch.

    Wind will really move a 40 grain bullet around at 1050 fps. That's some pretty darn good shooting right there.:what:

    Good groups. You gotta try F class rimfire. Your rig is perfect. You get to use a bipod and a sand bag. The target is mean, it is a tiny thing, so the game is not a gimme. But it makes you a better wind reader. Rimfires float in the wind, 100 yards is a long way for a 22 LR, nasty wind changes will occur between the firing line and target.

    Shooting at 100 isn't any harder than shooting at 50, you just have to figure out the drops. If you're using most standard duplex scopes the point where the wide cross hair tapers down to the narrow section is going to be pretty close to the aiming point at 100. Maybe not perfect depending on ammo and the exact scope, but should get you on paper at 100. You can fine tune from there. If you've never tried it give it a shot.

    I got bored with shooting at 50 yards and have moved on to 100 and beyond 200 with my 22's. I often place clay targets on the berm beyond the 200 yard line at my range and shoot them. They will vary between 210-230 yards and are much more challenging and fun than shooting at 50 yards.

    You should give small bore silhouette a go if you enjoy that.

    Nice Shooting! Love the set up. :)

    I keep thinking about setting up a .22 rifle like this. Posts like yours BigDog are good incentive. Thanks for posting.

    I like silhouette. Throwing out the bench and bags, then standing to shoot offhand separates the men from the boys....lol...It usually is quite humbing to newcomers.

    My wife's even figured that out. :rofl:

    She doesn't shoot offhand well, but shes deadly off the bench.

    I've noticed this as well. I shoot a Savage Mk II with Leupold 2-7x33 scope that has a duplex reticle. I find that the exact same point on my duplex as you describe is spot on at 100 meters.

    A little wind goes a long way in effecting group sizes the farther out you go....Go to a 50 yard rimfire benchrest match and look at all the wind flags. They ain't for decoration...lol
