Small bore was 25, 50, 75, and 100 yards. Accuracy was paramount, so that is a given for me. Recently, from December thru February, I have been shooting with several friends at Michigan City Rifle and Pistol Club. Two Friday nights a month they have a rimfire match in their indoor range: 50 feet. I shot a couple of rifles as well as my Anschutz Exemplar pistol. The targets are very small, sometimes just a dot. Shootoffs sometimes are toothpicks. That is fun. My buddies and I are pretty competitive. I never won, but I was only 1 or 2 points down.

    So, most of the shooting I do, accuracy is a priority. I guess that should explain my leaning towards accuracy for most of my shooting. Even when I shoot Steel Challenge, I rarely miss. Part of that is due to me mostly shooting revolvers in SC. With a revolver, you can't afford to miss. I'm not the fastest here, but they are a little impressed with the revolvers.

    Very interesting!
    I need to get over to MCF&G on the West side of Indy to watch some steel shooting to get excited about it again.
    I think they have them every Friday evening or at least 1x/month.

    Yes, they have something similar to our long range rimfire match. We kind of styled ours after their matches. They post info about their match in the Shooting Sports section here. Check it out, it should be fun.

    NICE shooting! Given the 50' range, I'd say you have set a new mark to beat.

    bcannon msgd me a few days ago and said I could enter a target with my Black Mamba to give gmcttr a run for his money. I shot some groups today at a private range. The indoor range is 50 feet without any way to move the target or bench. So I figure that could be a self-imposed handicap for using a non-standard Mk IV. I did put a scope on the gun though and used a rest.

    We needed to have more than one group posted, so here it is. A little further target, but not quite as good a group as gmcttr. It was nice to get out of the house and shoot a little bit.


    Black Mamba
    6-18X40 scope
    50 feet
    CCI SV 40 grain bullet
    Group was .510" measured OTO



    Two of them: one for the target, one for the gun!

    You are living my dream!

    Iím gonna pretend like this didnít take me well over 350 rounds of my coveted CCI SV, but I finally got the group that I was looking for! The picture of the two sheets of paper/targets was round 2 for the day. Haha. Definitely was a test in patience and frustration. Some of the groups tell those stories. Had a fair number of decent 8 shot groups. Took awhile to get all 10 in though.

    Ruger Mk IV LITE with Tandemkross and VQ goodies.
    Old school red dot
    25í to target
    10 shot group
    CCI SV 40gr
    Rested on shooting bag
    Measures 0.3020 inches
    -I tried to be as conservative as I could by making sure that there was a little paper fringe visible on each side of the calipers so everyone knows Iím not gaining an extra couple hundredths. Tried to measure similarly to the ones before me.

    Also, I tried a comically large scope because I had it sitting around waiting on its rifle, but it didnít work for me at all (big surprise, right?) so I switched to my old tube red dot which treated me much better. Glad I brought both. Iíll add a pic of it at the end for people to get a kick out of. It just BARELY cleared the suppressor!

    Now, for my original thought that didnít pan out at all... way too hard to see the crosshairs at this close.

    Shaping up to be a nice competition. Are the MK4 more accurate than the Buckmark pistols? Those are some very tight groups from several different people.

    Don't know, never shot a Buckmark.

    I suspect both pistols are more accurate than most shooters. Notice we made various sight systems work as we now have groups shot with iron sights, a scope and a red dot.

    I think the trend you should take note of is that all three pistols have top of the line aftermarket fire control groups.

    Thank ya, sir. Same to you! Your great shooting cost me a few hundred rounds, almost 3 hours, and a lot of frustration. Haha. Iíve been doing mostly longer-range rifle and fast acquisition (Metal Madness-ish) pistol shooting recently, but this was a great change of pace.
