I started this in the precision rimfire thread the thought it would be easier to share my updates in another thread
My goal is to compete in a NRL22 match. This is the journey:

Fun with my son!
He is left eye dominant learning to shoot lefty which takes some concentration

This was the first range session with the updates, there are a couple of things that need to be adjusted, I need to move the scope forward as it took a bit of adjustment to keep a clear sight picture, probably my form, also the magazine release is a pain, to small and the plastic mags don’t drop free

Also of all the ammo tested yesterday all of the groups except for the Thunderbolt, CCI quiet and the federal heavy match could be covered with a dime.
I will use CCI standard velocity as my control ammo, and continue testing at longer distance

In order to adjust my view through the scope, I extended the length of pull, kind of a cheap fix with recoil pads but it is workable. I set up the range and got to it

I focused on CCI Standard velocity and Norma Match today. Shooting at 25, 50 and 75yds. Shooting prone, hits were relatively easy and I did record my mil settings. Barricade practice reminded me how old and overweight I am. I need to work on non standard positions.

I also settled on a Wiebad Fortune Cookie for my large bag

Cool project. I had the same problem with the magazines being sticky. I removed the action and used a flat file to take off a little bit of wood from both sides of the magazine well. Not much, maybe a 32d of an inch. Took care of it.
