All most everyone claims they can drive "TACKS" all-day long at 100 yards with their .22 Long Rifle Firearm. And I do know a guy in Girdwood, AK. who builds my triggers on my CZ-452 & CZ-453 rifles who I would bet on against those who claim to drive tacks all day long.
Yesterday I was zeroing in my CZ-452 Ultra-Lux with it's 28.5" barrel and 2.5 Leupold Compact at 81 yards The distance from the sleeping cabin to the 55 gallon trash barrel. Now I have never even remotely considered myself a good shot, and more like a fair shot on days that all of the stars are aligned perfectly. The trash barrel gets coyote visitors, that being the reason for zero at 81 yards.
I have noticed that as I get old my body is still steady, but my memory does not recall which firearms are dialed in at 3" or 2.5" high at 100 yards, and which are zeroed at other distances, unless I have that info taped on the non-cheek weld side of the stock. So I have decided to zero everything in at 100 yards.
So here are my discussion questions: Standing & leaning against a tree or doorway (NOT on a bench) with you putting up $50.00 before each shot (Getting double or nothing back) what size circle at 100 yards, would you be comfortable betting you could keep could 9 out of 10 .22 LR shots inside.....??? NOTE: You could make up to $500.00 or you could loose up to $450.00 You only get one flyer.
Second question: At what range could you keep every shot inside a 3" circle......??? Same shooting restrictions.......???
