SASQUATCH RACE TEAM
I picked up a new toy at the gun show today. araugar 10/22 acusport lvt. I also picked up a burris 3x9.
Can't beat a 10/22, they are the buyers choice for a really good 22.
Burris makes good stuff. If I was to buy a scope again it would be one of those. I used some of the Burris Signature Zee (weaver base) rings with the plastic inserts on my new 22 mag scope. Top quality stuff with no lapping of the caps or any of that crap.
looks sweet. i am headed to the range in little bit. its only a 35 yrd range so i will have to wait to test out the long range side of the house. how do you like the 22 wmr ammo over the 22 lr? i have never shoot much rim fire stuff.My new Savage 93BV 22 mag Heavy barrel, with a Mueller Hybrid 3x9x40 extended eye relief, Burris Zee's, Butler Creek flip up covers, and I added a Limbsaver 1" butt pad due to the length of pull being a bit short for me with the syn stock. Got it dialed in now to 100 yds with Hornady ballistic tip 30gr. I have put about 200-300 rounds thru it,,and it just keeps getting better.
Oh, you'l luv the 22 lr stuff,,it is a kick and much cheaper than 22Mag. Buy some extra clips and another 550 box of ammo, it's going to be needed soon. The only downside to a semi auto is that you wizz thru ammo.how do you like the 22 wmr ammo over the 22 lr? i have never shoot much rim fire stuff.
i got a extra 25 rd clip. i saw a 50rd drum at the gun show a few months ago. i can see a need to buy ammo in bulk with this thing.:smt067Oh, you'l luv the 22 lr stuff,,it is a kick and much cheaper than 22Mag.

I went with the 22mag just due to its better down range power. Around here we have Ruff and Blue grouse to shoot when they are in season,,so we slow creep the logging roads, hoping to catch one lingering/ eating on the edges, easy to nip there head off with a 22Mag or 22lr. Also good for the wayward song dog or deer when they are in season.
Lucky for you,,22LR ammo is getting produced at a greater rate than just recently.. more choices, availibility,ect. This passing winter it was a PITB to find any 22 ammo, and when you did, it was a rediculous price per box.
Watch those 50rd mags,,youll scorch the barrell out. I would stick to the 25's or so, plenty of rounds.
The CCI Maxi-mag ammo has a good bearing surface, and it works for me as far as 22lr accuracy. not horribly priced either. You can get match grade euro ammo, for hyper accuracy,,but it cost more.
