I try to get to the range at least twice a week here when the weather is good, because, come winter, it is hard to get any range time at all. Yesterday was just fun time with a couple of .22’s. I was shooting my CZ 455 at 100 yards with Federal Range Pack ammo. For cheap bulk ammo, the CZ shoots it pretty fair; not as good as target ammo, it good enough for some fun. I shot a little on paper, and then started shooting tin cans until they bounced out of sight in the tall grass down range. Reminds me of when I first started shooting because mostly that was all the targets I ever had was empty cans. Loads of fun, and it does not cost much.

Then I played with the Ruger Standard for a while shooting from about 10 yards...love shooting that thing! It makes me look like I know what I am doing. :thumbsup:

I like to set up old shotgun hulls and rifle brass. Depending on the range it can get pretty challenging. Then there’s alway clay birds, tin cans and old frying pans, painted white, at a good distance. I’m a huge .22 guy. Always have been. You can shoot all day and not break the bank or wear yourself out. I’m not sure how many .22 rifles I own but I know I’ve got thousands of rounds so I don’t have to run to the store every time I hit the range.

I was taught how to shoot accurately when I was a kid by plinking old medicine bottles, beer cans, ...

Our range doesn't allow any of that, so it's either steel way out yonder or paper.

Nice shooting. I had the Ruger MK4 out this am. Ran about 300 rounds through it shooting at cans. I think it's finally broke in. I was having stove pipes with it after about 60 rounds in. None today. Took the big rifles out this after to check for zero for deer season, Just checked at 50 yards since i hunt the woods. The Mosin is dead on with tula ammo. And both my 30.06's are ready. Checked the smoke pole and bow a few weeks ago there good to go as well.

Our range is uncontrolled. That has benefits and challenges too. I like plinking at stuff, like cans, then I pick up the trash when I am done. Some folks come out and shoot all kinds of stuff, and then leave the trash laying. I usually spend at least a half hour a week on Monday mornings picking up junk from the weekend; there are a few of us who keep the place cleaned up as best we are able.

Good shooting at 100, AgedWarrior. What scope is on that CZ? I shoot mine open sights, but a can at that distance is quite a challenge.
Shooting cans at a 100 with open sights would be tough for my eyes nowadays. My 455 has barrels for .22 LR and .17 HMR, so I put a Sightron 3-9x40 on it with some Talley rings. It is a a lot of fun to shoot and a great small game gun.

Shotgun hulls are fun! Anything that is small enough to be challenging is fun! I enjoy shooting .22’s a lot too.
