    Mark-II, if you can find them, try a box the CCI Green Tag. About 1070 fps, but very consistent in my experience through an A-Bolt 22LR, a Ruger K77/22 and a Ruger 10/22.

    Savage Mark II G is pretty accurate for a cheap out-of-the-box rifle. Also has a nice trigger.

    Green Tag is a bit dear for my Winnipegger nature. I might still have a half pack. It’s probably wasted on the 25m range though

    Last night I put together an upper based on a 20” CMMG barrel and new bolt assembly that I’ve had for months but never got around to building. Testing it today and it was pretty lacklustre at first. Federal 38gr was poor. CCI blazer was better. S&B standard is pretty good but smoky. I’m not sure I want to shoot that greasy stuff in a semi.

    CCI AR Tactical, though, is driving tacks! At least in early testing

    I’ve had a CMMG upper before, with a shorter barrel and a used bolt assembly that I refitted from a chamber conversion kit to dedicated 22. It never shot nearly this well.

    Urge to buy that Savage is much decreased.

    I’ve ordered a JP Rifles 22 kit from Aztech. Looking forward to trying it out in a month or so.

    Green Tag = $0.28 a round for 22lr, I don't like paying that for 9mm, I'll try take the A22 out this week, see what works, got Golden Bullets (work surprisingly well in my pistol) Mini Mags and Fed bulk

    I see a couple dealers have the Ruger Competition rifle in stock. It's tempting. I've had funds put aside for a Dlask TUFF22, so it would be one or the other.

    I have a pretty healthy assortment of .22ís and I thought my heavy barrel CZ Grey Ghost was the one until I broke down for a last of for this life .22LR....

    The 1712 is wicked consistent across the board with any half azz ammo and even with CCI Standard it makes me smile. Iím in Teaxas at the moment and too cheap for cloud services (They truly irk me) so until Iím back I cant post targets.....

    I still have and never will part with Popís Savage 110 in ĎOught Six, so very accurate to this day. Savage is so underrated in some aspects.

    Anyone got an opinion on the Savage A22. Been looking at the Pro Varmint one, and there’s a tempting sale on...

    Plus I have all these butler creek mags that I mistakenly thought should work in the B22 but don’t :/

    haven't had a chance to shoot mine yet, hopefully soon. One thing I can tell you is the forend is much stiffer than the one on my MkII.

    MkII has 4,000+ rounds while on bipod

    Sure the left overs are still good stuff, but it bothers be that the best of it has been removed. It looks like Federal might be doing the same thing.

    Anyways, one day I'll pick up a cz because everyone raves about them. Maybe an Anshutz as well!
    That's exactly the same way that Laupa grades and prices their rimfire ammunition. My son lived in the town of Lapua for a year. He toured the Lapua factory and that is what he was told.
