There is also a rimfire division at the Submachine Gun match. Bring it!

Thrifty benchrest & NRL22 at DSRCP.
I'm a regular at Thrifty (2nd Thurs), and I loved the NRL22 matches, but they recently had to move them to the 2nd Sat so it conflicts with one of my beloved vintage military rifle matches.

.22 LR only for all the ones I know about. I think there was a .17 HM2 (not the magnum) division at Thrifty once, but I don't think it had enough support.

I have 22s to shoot. I just love my 17WSM. I put an old Weaver fixed 10 power K model on it and like a death ray up to 150yds.

Death rays are cheating. NRL22 will take that rainbow trajectory of your 22 LR and have you making hits from 15 - 200 yards!

Ahh, ok. That's sounds like a job for my Ruger M77.
Does everyone shoot the same grain bullet? Or just all between 36 and 40 grain.

You shoot what you bring. An M77 in 22 is a dream gun, way too nice for the likes of the folks out there with their plastic fantastics. That will be fun to watch.

It's the optics that really make it. You need something with either a very good reticle for holdovers, or tactical turrets that you can dial on the fly. Most have both. I prefer the reticle and rarely dial unless over 100 yards. You also need something that can focus as close as 15 yards. Most scopes can't.

Hmmm you musta missed the one in the rack when you stopped in to say "Hi" even comes with a scope.... Used but I believe never fired.

Whatever is the best accuracy out of your gun that you are willing to pay for. NRL22 is at steel targets mostly, and well within the precision of CCI Standard that I use. Many are using SK Standard or the expensive SK and Lapua stuff even.
