Been at our other house the last 5 days.
Went to the range Monday.
.22 Rifle at 100 yards, not so good.
Federal Auto Match 40 gr LRN. Bipod only support (like Rule #6 in the rifle shootout)

On the other hand, my 24/7 at 15 yards with my cast LRN, 4.0gr HP-38.
WAHOO!!!!

Only 4 shot in the 8-ring, 41 shots 9-ring or X.

Forgot to mention. Scored some brass there also.
Somebody left the range and did not pick up his Federal .223 Rem. brass.
I got 36 out of the mud.

Nice shooting with the 9mm, I found with a little tweaking those LRN shoot real nice. A lot cheaper then those Hollow Points you were shooting. I wish I started saving .223 brass a long time ago, never really had a desire now that I am building one all I can think about is the thousands of .223 brass I walked past over the last year. Since Nov I have only been able to collect 153. :(

It looks like I hit the perfect combination of charge and OAL.
Practically zero leading in the barrel.
None that I could actually see, but there may have been a smooth coating.
Anyway, it cleaned up just fine.

Gotta get more boolits.
Picked up 500 CCI 500 SPP at Nichols Store in Rock Hill.
A bit overpriced at $5.95 per 100, but not like it's a ripoff.
