While I don't think I would likely go that route, but I've been researching a lot more on Vudoos lately. . . but that's $2k for barreled action, another $800-1000+ for chassis, and then glass. . . in that case, likely not in the next year (or current rifle permit). . .  :(

Zermatt Arms Rim X action. Build is EXACTLY how you want it not how Vudoo thinks it should be.

I thought you said you was going budget.  :geekdanc: :geekdanc: :geekdanc: Just kidding, I warned you, the rabbit hole is deep AF. You haven't even gone done the precision 22lr ammo road yet,  ;D ;D ;D

If rimfire precision is what you are after, 22 Plinkster is not at all your guy. Since you mentioned you lean towards PRS style shooting and looking into rimfire, look at Long Range Shooters of Utah channel on YouTube and search their early 22lr Marksman Challenge videos. Rodney Downs started it but work and politics forced him to stop. Bryce has some good videos as well. NRL22 is fun but 100y max. There's a group in Kentucky that push comps to 50o as does Nevada.

On my buddies who shoot PRS, I can see what you’re saying.  I don’t intend on shooting PRS, but that style is about the closest to my interests overall. I’ve had conversations with some other shooting buddies on balance of say a more stabile shooting support/position for when testing loads, but I am more of the mindset of keeping things closer to how I’ll shoot normally. 

On the trigger pull, never tried heavier as when I started shooting for more precision, the gun was setup in the 1.5# range and liked it.  Never thought to change.  Not really emulating any style, but mostly blindly following not knowing better.

I too like PRS style shooting. Seeing how the sport is evolving though, no thanks. Rifles Only is another one that's keeping it real. Very few shooters want to get better by putting in the work, they want to make everything to be easier. Rifles Only is keeping it real. Fundamentals, building a solid position with what you have. How you shoot a 22lr is how you should shoot a 338LM and everything in between IMO. Practice make permanent. PERFECT practice makes perfect.

A trusted instructor and friend does advocate for shooting with stock triggers before going to the “high speed” triggers.  I stuck with stock for such a long time for the mindset of learning to shoot stock stuff will be better off in the long run, as well as Geissele triggers are pricey. 

I can say that I’m at least a decent shot with stock Glock and AR triggers.  When my gunsmith set my trigger to about 1.5# after the upgrade, I got used to that.  That and my friends on the mainland who shoot PRS and are pretty competitive, most of them shoot in the lighter end of the spectrum.  I think all around the 1# range, so I stayed in that same general range. 

Smart instructor.

IMO many of the current PRS shooters exhibit some very poor trigger control. They have gone to very low recoil 6mm with muzzle brakes and heavy rifles to achieve performance. Don't even get me started on the many bags they use. Frank Galli has a podcast where he talks about the "new PRS shooters" being good at free throws but they aren't good basketball players. I agree 100%. That is exactly what they are doing, they are making the task easier, they aren't making themselves better.

Last time I talked to him, he showed me a picture of the Block II M4A1 trainer he put together with a CLE 22LR kit.

He's a good guy and a GREAT shooter!!! He definitely puts in the work and practice.

I have a friend that if you pound the table, the rifle would go off. IMO, even though a bench gun, that's too light.  But to each their own, we aren't like MA that requires a 10lb trigger.

The RPRR comes with a bladed trigger, which is unnecessary for a bench gun.  There are mods to remove the blade, but I've been too lazy and it doesn't bother me that much because of the price of the rifle and I'm not doing competitions with it.

Those are my boiz!!  :geekdanc: :geekdanc: :geekdanc: Yah that's too light for me

"Light" triggers can gain you quicker accuracy improvements. You will get to the point where you will plateau and can't improve anymore. IMO they mask poor trigger pulls. Shoot a factory stock striker fired pistol and that will tell you tons about your trigger pull. Sadly most don't really want to know the truth. Jus sayin'

Isn't that because they have an indoor range?

They replied to their post stating that since they are considered indoor recreational, they need to comply. If they shut down the range and only did retail, they would not need to.

Thanks.  :shaka: :shaka: :shaka:

I'll add that 808 Gun Club posted on their socials that they will require vaccine report or test results.

koffinwurks is an F NO to any type of mandate or passport
SEC only has temp check (which has long been known to not do anything)

Yes Koffinwurks is the best but I was looking for powder at the moment.

General Discussion / Vaccine Passport at LGS

Looking for info as to which LGS are requiring Vaccine Passport or test results to enter their facility.

Got a pocket full of cash and was going to SEC tomorrow but won't if they require it.

Think its setup as a mk12 spr

That makes sense. I think I've seen that one. MK18 would be tricky in HI

The guy with the 40X conversion and MK!8 clone is master!!  :thumbsup:

Bushido is the 22 master. He helped me out lots when I 1st got 1.

Definitely not a master. Been focusing my energy on a different discipline of shooting lately.

It's been said that shooting 100 with a 22lr is similar to shooting centerfire at 400, that is not my experience at all. 600 is much easier with a centerfire than shooting 100 with a 22lr IME especially at KHSC. The holds are definitely different a full value wind with a centerfire is a much flatter hold, rimfire needs to add or subtract elevation as well.

I’m gonna start ignoring your posts.

Everyone ignores me as they should.  :geekdanc: :geekdanc: :geekdanc: I know a little about the rimfire game though.....

What would the advantage be of say going with a complete gun from Anschutz as opposed to a custom build?

I would think a complete gun from (what I assume is) a very reputable and well known company carries a lot of value/weight.  However, one the flip side, I would think if one is spending that kind of money, they would want to get the exact setup they want, including chassis, barrel, etc.  Or maybe "that kind of money" isn't scratching the surface yet for .22 lr precision rifles.   :shake:

Don't see myself going anywhere near that realm any time soon, but was wondering.  For now, I'm saving up, or more like trying to space out larger purchases just before ordering the finishing touches to my bolt gun.  The glass is the main one, but the components like scope mount, bipod and attachments, we well as a better range finder all add up.

I'll add, if you are buying let's say a Anschutz, that is a quality rifle. I feel for the money of the higher end stuff, you could probably have a custom built for the same price. I know guys that did both

Just for fun....
Pinay with winchester 52A's
(pic shot just before WW2)

I have a huge soft spot for 52s, the bank account can not support the addiction though.  ;)

Zermatt Arms RimX receiver is what you want. You can build exactly what you want that is if you're building a PRS style build. A BR rifle would be best  with a Stiller 2500X, Turbo, Falcon, etc.... action built by a reputable gunsmith like Calfee IMO. The experienced rimfire specific gunsmiths have barrels, actions, etc that they prefer. The turn around time will be long. Joe Cachon if going semi auto rimfire. The rabbit hole is deep. Like I said, there is nothing cheap about precision rimfire just like LR and ELR shooting.

Reloading / Re: concentricity gauges

Took some cartidges with runout of more than .005" and shot them. No big difference - shot 1 MOA. settled on 7 shots for a group and called it a test already since components are few and far between.

1MOA well within the SR 10 ring.
