SK HIgh Velocity Match Ammo

Post by tomon »

First brick I got shoots great out to 180yds so far. I will shoot out to 200 this Sunday. This match uses 3-3/8 and then 2- 1/5 sized silhouettes each 5 target row. I find it quite challenging, but this ammo looks up to it. It is selling out quick everywhere I've looked, so grab it when you see it! Good shooting!

What kind of a match is this? Surely not 1/5 scale offhand at 200? Details?

Didn't get to the Long Range Rimfire Silhouette shoot last Sunday due to range storm damage, so next chance to shoot will be a 100yd KYL shoot at McKeesport next weekend. Targets in descending sizes from 8" to 1" in a 1 minute time limit.

Two different matches......
Keystone Sportmens Club has a monthly LRS shoot at 50, 100, 150 , and 200yds. Each row of 5 animals consist of 3@3/8 and 2@1/5. A bonus random target is also added at TBD range for a more challenging attempt. They have target setters, so tip them, please!
Clairton Sportmens Club has theirs every other month and consists of all 3/8 animals at 50, 100,, 150, and 185yds. Max 20 Shooters have to walk to reset/paint/paste after each relay.
I believe McKeesport Sportmens Club is having them every Sat. in October, but unsure of particulars.

See respective Websites for details!

No.... At Keystone, The 50yd chicks are offhand, and the rest are shot off of a benched bipod, or the club supplied front rest, which are Caldwell's cheapest models. No rear rests, must be shoulder mounted.
At Clairton, in Open Category, Chicks offhand, and the rest are prone from bipods or cross sticks. In Hunter Benchrest, The Chicks get shot standing off a monopod, or off elbows , for those who can't stand. The other animals are shot off of a benched bipod or front rest. HB shooters must use HV ammo, and have a max power scope rule. There are also Hunter and Open sight categories.

I use the older sk high velocity for my 22 lever gun. Especially handy when shooting pistol cartridge with the 22. Can't wait to get my hands on some of this new stuff.
I buy all my guns from t-rex. He's a small arms dealer.

Cathy had some for sale at Nationals. She probably has some left. Give her a call at Good Shooting, Inc.

I bought two bricks of the SK high velocity ammo from Cathy at the Nationals because her dad, Chris, said he had tried it and said it shot real well. If Chris recommends it that is enough for me.
Recently, I had the chance to try it out. Using my Marlin 39A with receiver sight benchrest, the ammo put five shots in less than an inch at 100 yards. Next, I shot Lapua Center X at the same distance and it shot the same as the SK HV.
I'm convinced the SK High Velocity Match is great for lever gun silhouette.
