Funny, I'd never considered swapping ammo this way but it makes a lot of sense. I shoot SK Standard for silhouette or Norma Tac 22 which perform identically in my Anschutz 1722.

I suppose that if I had sufficient time, even sorting the good stuff by rim thickness may be worth it or at least at the SK/Norma price point sorting and shooting consistent rims on the turkeys/rams.

I really like that Norma match ammo. It is great stuff. All of my rifles like it too, just about like SK standard:
All 10 shot groups, as that is what our club does for our rimfire shoots..:

Not bad for a $199.99 rifle..^^

The old girl loves Norma match and SK standard too:

I did a test for accuracy on a Ruger 10-22 I had and later sold because it was not a great shooter: AKA "finicky"...

Another one I found to work very well in all my rifles is also Eley Target, which used to be around the same price as SK standard. It was also available just about everywhere I'd buy ammo. Great 22lr ammo...

Nice 52!


Anybody who seriously concerns themselves with the adequacy of a Big 7mm for anything we hunt here short of brown bear, is a dufus. They are mostly making shidt up. Crunch! Nite-nite!

Oh, I know it! Now, doing it is another thing altogether!

Our season ended up only being 3 matches last year so I'm a case ahead on ammo but 5K is about right for what I shoot.

Ok, Pugs. How about we sample some of that stuff in the "new" BSA International I picked up, this afternoon in between bullet casting and beer drinking? I think we can squeeze maybe a 25 foot range there in your basement, while your better half is at work?

25 feet? Do you guys throw the rifle over your shoulder and shoot backwards while looking at the sights with a mirror.
