Today, Sunday, May 6th we shot the monthly .22 Rim fire rifle competition at Springwater Rod & Gun Club in Springwater, NY. This competition is sometimes referred to as .22 F-Class but actually it is simply a bench rest bull's eye match.

There are two categories; open and tactical. Open category is fired from the bench using any rest and the tactical category must be shot from the prone using a bipod. Far and away the most popular class is open class.

The competitors are not new to this kind of shooting and they began to arrive early and soon a field of whirligigs and wind flag had sprung up.


There were two orders of shooters with each order shooting one set of targets in each of two relays.


There was a 20-minute time limit set for the firing of each relay. Unlimited "sighter" shots were allowed on the top "sighter" target before placing ten shots on each of the two scoring targets. This was done twice for a total of 40-shots for score. The highest scoring ring was worth 5-points so a maximum possible score is 200-points.

It is no simple task to get a .22RF rifle to consistently shoot inside one minute of angle at 100-yards. Only the best (most expensive) target grade ammunition can be relied upon to deliver that kind of accuracy.

I shot my Remington 40X single shot .22RF training rifle. I had this rifle built to emulate my full-bore .308 Winchester.


This kind of competition can be frustrating and challenging but is quite worthwhile. It affords me the opportunity to get some quality trigger time and is great practice for wind calling.

How about 50/100/200? we shot this match last Sept. at Pinetree Rifle Club in Johnstown after the benchrest league was over for the season, was alot of fun a light rain made the hit's on the 200 hard to see even with a spotting scope!! Looking forward to this year, going to get in some more practice in this time around!! ( also the Benchrest League starts tonight for the next 18 weeks ) Good shooting to all in League's and Matchs that are starting up Jamie

I've been on a great quest for the best when it comes to .22 Rimfire ammunition.

Wolf Match is pretty good.

Eley Match, Black Box is the best I've used so far.

Your enemy is flyers. Plenty of brands group pretty well but there are those pesky fliers.
