I don't have one, but the guys I am competing against in my little club are all getting them. I suppose when you are talking about tenths or less of an inch making the difference between first and second place, there may well be some value. They are also putting the "bloop tubes" on the end of the tuner. I need to get to the point where I am shooting better before I bother with them.

I have a Fudd on my Anschutz 54 BR gun. Everything you've heard is true. They work and can really help dial in for different ammo. Kinda like handloading to dial in a centerfire. if you're trying to win it's a must.


Only fast twist rifles are interesting.

they can make a great shooter better but will not fix a bad shooter meaning the rifle not the person

Our local league matches have turned into a "free-for-all" as far as equipment goes. I've built up a nice CZ and had seen these mounted on some of the top-end guns and was wondering about their progress. With .22 LR ammo like it is,nothing is to be wasted.
thanks for the input!

I have a Limbsaver deresonator on my heavy barreled Savage Mk II.

It has eliminated fliers. Groups are about the same size, though my "match" ammo is just resized CCI Blazer (I use D Rock's resizer from RFC).

I have a Ron Hoehn tuner on my Suhl 22RF target rifle. The tuner is made by Lynwood Harrel of powder measure fame, and then sent to Ron Hoehn for final reaming of the hole to fit your barrel. You, I, need to send measurements to Ron so he can ream accordingly.
It works!!!
I have some pretty accurate 22 RF target rifles, but I can deliver 5 shot, 50 yard targets that measure in the teens, or better, with the Suhl w/tuner.
