Has the Anschutz 1712 been replaced by the Anschutz 1762? Should I sell off my 1712s to buy the new 1761 So I can stay competitive in AA?

I guess you don't think the new Anschutz model is as good as the 1712?

You are probably correct, I am more inclined to have a custom rifle built.

The real problem with the 22s is the ammo, not the rifle. With a lot of searching you can find ammo that will group under 1 min. Some people carry a target in their bilfold that is about 1/2 min but that kind of group is not consistant. If you have a rifle/ammo combo that will shoot 1 minute, you too can become a master shooter with hours a day practice. A good coach is required to keep you on the straight and narrow. Some people have made hunter AAA with a 10/22. It is the Indian, not the arrow.

Well damn, I was hoping to offset the cost of a new custom rifle by using Remington Golden bullets. :shock:

Oh well, it was a nice thought.
