The boy got a pretty decked out 10-22 for Christmas.... It has a bull barrel, adjustable junk all over the stock, bipod & loads of other things...... Anyway, he wants to do some 200yd shooting this weekend... What is a good ammo for these things?... I would like consistant clean ammo....... Any thoughts?

Thanks...

IDK about the auto`s but my bolt rifles thrive on SK Standard Plus,for cheap ammo I use CCI SV,,for plinking and just messing around Fed Auto Match is good bulk ammo,

I like the Green Tag ammo but I wouldn't know what to expect at 200 yards....

it may be hard to believe but at long range the 1050 speed ammo holds better in the wind than the high velocity rounds,,

from a 25 yard zero you will need around 25 Minutes of elevation to zero at 200 yards,,some scopes wont get that far without a taper base or a set of Burris Rings with the offset inserts,,

good luck,at the moment long range rimfire shooting is getting all my range time,

Yeah, I'm definitely gonna have to offset the scope somehow..... We shot a few times just playing around yesterday & I learned real quick that I was gonna have to taper somehow.....

+1 on federal automatch. My Norinco Cz copy loves it. Now if I could just find some...

The hard part now is probably going to be finding ANY .22 LR ammo to shoot in it. Nearly all the stores here are wiped clean of it. Benton Shooters still had some as of last week, but were $35 a box for it for the bulk stuff that's normally $20 a box.

Try Gunbroker, one vendor is selling at auction quite a bit of rimfire bullets but only in case lots. Grafs happens to have some lapua 22 rimfire for sale.

I dont know about 200 yards but I shoot my 10/22 at 100 yards and use CCI Stingers. They have a little more powder in them and a lighter grain bullet. I have a 3x9 scope mounted on see thru mounts the scope has fine cross hairs with a post at the bottom cross hair. I have the rifle sighted for 30 yards with the cross hairs and use the top of the bottom post at 100 yards.

FYI..........Don't shoot Stingers in any barrel with a Match or Bentz chamber. Stingers have longer brass and shorter bullets to still be the regular LR length. The longer brass allows more powder but jambs into the lands of Match and Bentz chambers and will ruin them.

No. Like Mr Big said, use the subsonic ammo for your best results.

I have been shooting my 455 V with the 10X Bushnell Elite and making hits on steel out to 400,,on calm days it will hold 5 inch groups at 300,but I havent really been shooting groups just dialing in range and holding wind and shooting for hits,,really quiet fun and makes for good wind reading practice for when I shoot the big guns really far,
