Home home on the range

Post by MaxwellG »

Went out today to the DCLETC - Dane County Law Enforcement Training Center, every Sat-Sun $10 all day.
Took the 9mm...yawn I'm just not that thrilled shooting a polymer compact pistol I plan to use for CCW...but gotta practice with it.

What was more fun was shooting the Ruger MkII .22, actually the starts when you reassemble it...lol got it right the first time this time.
I tried out some:
Aguila .22 LR Standard-Velocity - 50 round box
Aguila .22 LR High-Velocity Rimfire - 50 round box
Federal Premium® Gold Medal .22 LR - 50 round box (the favorite)

The Yellow Box Aulia High Velocity jammed 4 times
The Blue Box Aguila Standard-Velocity shot OK
The Federal, great stuff - that's why I have 600 rounds of it.

Shot at 15 yards

I’ve never had good luck with Aguila in my S&W Victory. It’s the only brand that jams consistently.

Strange. I bought several bricks of the Aguila hi velocity thinking they'd be great and based on good reviews... My MK III hates it. Constant jams. It'll eat anything else with no failures whatsoever. Must be the Aguila.

I like that you tried several ammos on the same day. Good action.

Interesting how these .22's are so ammo sensitive, often on an individual basis. My Buck Mark hates the Aguila 40-gr SV, but it has no issue with the corresponding CCI. It loves the Armscor HV 36-gr too. Never a jam with those.

Is this shooting off-hand unsupported? I'd like to know what to aspire to.

I wasn't shooting off-hand unsupported for most of it, I did for about 10 rounds in the center target on the last magazine.
I'm aspiring towards the Bulls-eye League, I'll need to practice a lot more if I have any hopes of competing.
I think the Mk I-III's are picky on ammunition and it's just a matter of finding out what your model pistol "likes".

+1 on shooting the Bullseye matches. It's really motivated me to get out and practice. Plus, it's fun. :-)
