I've shot with some of he best, and worst spotters out there. A Good Spotter: * STANDS behind the shooter and either tells there the bullet hit, or uses a board to indicate where the bullet strike was. *Minimal talking *Advises shooter of patterns developing ("you are consistently left...) *Knows th...

Re: Henry Frontier LA .22 Mag which ammo ?

Hornady Critical Defense 45gr would not work well in my rifle. But each is different. Good luck with it.

Re: Henry Frontier LA .22 Mag which ammo ?

I can verify that Hornady 45gr bullets will not perform well in your Henry. Henry folks think it has something to to with the plastic tip. Mine key holed at 10 yards (Hit target sideways). CCI TMJ performed best. So good there as no reason the use any other. Tried Federal 50gr, again key hole hits. ...

Suggestion for my first .22 BPCR

I've been shoting lever action and small bore silhouette for a some time now (maybe 15 years). Now I have to drive 3 hours north, or 3 hours northeast or or 3 hours east to get to local matches. But only 2 hours to BPCR matches. Typically this means I can only shoot afternoon matches...so 6 hours dr...

Henry finally did it - well sort of

Henry put side loading gates on "some" of their rifles. The news media link isn't working, but if you look at Marlin Owners you can find the announcement...or, may be it was"Fake News!"

Re: Another front sight quetion

I used a shim made from been can that worked for many years.

On my Henry I have Lee Shaver front sight - a perfect fit, even has a bubble level that the shooter can see.

Re: Silhouette Rifle Rules Changes - 2018

Our own apathy and in fighting killed handgun silhouette and IHMSA didn’t save it. It is dying as well, going down the equipment race hole that restrictions and rule fighting and extra catagories and super tricked out guns live. Only place its alive is in the memories of old shooters. Silhouette is...
