The .17WMR is more of a small game/varmint hunting round. It pushes about 1000 fps faster than a standard 22LR so the damage to a coyote or raccoon pretty much guarantees a kill. Something that can't be said when using a 22LR.

Unless you have a need for a gun like that, just move along.

What a cool idea.
Cabelas has them for $600, not including the other receivers though. It might actually be cheaper to buy a Marlin 17HMR, a mossberg 715 plinkster, and a random 22WMR over the cz.

The cz is a nice package though.

The guy must be a beast. The Barrett rifle is almost 30 lbs, while the Desert Eagle is 5 lbs with a loaded mag. I held one when I was at International and couldn't believe how massive it is.

Only Vinnie Jones can make it look small in comparison. Or maybe Ah-nuld.

Definitely not a Barrett. It looks like an Armalite AR50 to me

Well, listening to hypa and others go on about their 10/22's, I swung by Italian Sporting Goods on my way to work just to "check out" what they have and I ended up walking out of there with a nice Ruger of my own:

Ruger® 10/22® Distributor Exclusives Autoloading Rifle Model 11113



It came with a Butler Creek mag seeing as how the stock Ruger 25 round mags are now prohibited and I also bought a 110 round GSG mag for it. The BC mag jammed every other shot - I only ran two loads through it. The GSG mag gave me 2 misfeeds the first load, one stovepipe the second load, and then it ran flawless on the third. Only thing I didn't expect is that those mags make it impossible to use a bag - they are too tall.

Here's my target with the third 110 round mag - I did this both standing and sitting, free holding the gun w/o props or bipod. I need to get my sight down some more, as it was shooting low. But this is all 110 rounds:



So after about 500 rounds through the 10/22 I decided to go over to the long range and test out that Parker-Hale 1200C 7mm MAG I was given. Our range requires you bring your own targets and stands, and I didn't feel like waiting for the green light to set up in the rain, so I decided just to burst a few rounds in the prone to see how I handle the punch.

There was only myself and then a group of 10 people there doing some kind of biathlon training class with their expensive little rim fire guns that make almost no sound. Well, I let off my first round and it thunders the whole range and echoes off the hills here in Squamish. The entire group ran out of the range as fast as they could. I noticed what happened, and went outside to ask why they left? Well, they weren't wearing any ear protection (though they are supposed to at our range) and so they were now putting in ear plugs.

That made me chuckle a little, told them I would make it quick anyways because at $3 a bullet and no target, I just want to squeeze about 6 shots out today.

7mm is pure thunder, it is a Cannon.

I'll never shoot anything but 7mm hunting

Zedbra, that 10/22 looks interesting. Do you mind if I ask how much it cost?

And that 7mm looks like an incredible gun! If you want to go hunting, come out to where I am now. Lots of moose, deer, bear around for the shooting.

No I don't mind - it's easy enough info for anyone to find:
10/22 Destroyer w/ATI folding stock and BC 25 mag = $499.00
Bushnell 1-4.5 x 32 scope = $84.00
Rings = $30.00
GSG Mag = $98.00

Then I bought a bunch of other odds and ends I needed. Walked out $1200 lighter. Italian Sporting Goods mounted the scope for free (normally charge $40), and I got 5-10% off the accessories because I am a BCWF member. Overall, I liked dealing with Carlo there. Went back this morning, bought more ammo and a bipod, plus a few other things and that was $425. Fun little sport - it likes to play with my wallet

I will be joining a couple of hunters this year that always travels up to the Cariboo - but they usually go just northwest of Prince George.

Ugh, that's expensive for just the gun. Is it because of the stock and tactical style furniture? Is there anything special about the action or barrel to make it that expensive?

They're probably hunting in the Fraser Lake/Fort St James/Vanderhoof area, there's a lot of that going around there.

$499 isn't a bad price for that gun.
The standard 10/22 ranges anywhere from $299-$349, if you can find them in stock. I had to wait 6 weeks for mine to come in. Tacticool stocks are $100-$180, then you have the 16" barrel and muzzle break included. All said and done, it's pretty much where a tacticool 10/22 should be, all without having to bed the receiver in the stock yourself because Ruger already did it.

Honestly, with what I've spent on my 10/22, I should have gone with one of the Tac Sol prebuilt guns. I think the only stock part left on mine is the receiver housing. But it's so much fun.




What are people using for targets out there?
Here's my setup.



The tree is for .22 plinking, while the gong is AR500 steel and can be used with .22 all the way up to 50 cal. I use 5.56 and .223 on it, along with the odd 12 guage slug. Those hit really hard though.......



Time to make some repairs.

^ I thought the same way about the pricing. The stock is $129-$149 aftermarket but this one is stamped by Ruger, already fir, short barrel with muzzle break - the price seemed right. I was looking at another 10/22 with a laser and it was $429 and a Takedown was similar in price, but thought this one was nice and light, would do for blasting fast rounds and my kids will love it when they are old enough (also part of the light decision). Overall, I thought longer term and why not?

I am needing to find collapsing target frames that I can take to my range. They supply nothing at our range and you have to take in and take out everything. Also, we can't use metal targets (but can use metal target frames). What shops might sell frames that are 6' tall, will hold a large paper target?

Where can you get those AR500 targets and stands locally?

About how much do they run?

couldn't you make your own with pvc or similar? would take two seconds to set up and should be somewhat sturdy, as long as your target hangs with steel wire. stress from impact onto the target shouldn't traslate onto the frame itself.

I could, but Im not as interested in the stand as I am the AR500 target. Just rather pick one up locally for decent price than having to ship a heavy plate.

A couple old timers at the range tonight gave me some good ideas how to build wood ones that easily collapse and will fit in the back seat of my Jetta.
