Been a long time since I spent an afternoon shooting .22s.

Took my brand new buckmark URX plus practical to the range for the first time today. Took 6 different kinds of ammunition and it cycled all of them at Iíd guess 95% reliability. Still searching for the perfect ammo for it, but all of it shot pretty well. I was averaging 2Ē groups at 10 yards rapid fire. If I really took my time, they were under an inch pretty easily.

I shot:
CCI Mini Mags
CCI stingers (best groups)
Federal champion round nose
Federal champion bulk HP
Blazer
Aguila Super Extra

I love Buckmarks. Try out some CCI SV, that seems to shoot great in everything I've tried.

The more I shot it, the more reliable it got. I think the last 50 federal bulk only had 1 FTF.

This one is no exception. The trigger gets even better if you flip the sear spring which I did. Itís probably 2.5-3 lbs now. It will be even better once I switch the trigger for the tandemkross victory trigger.

Lube it up and keep shooting! My BIL's Challenger will get a little hesitant when it gets dry.

I may need to get more info on flipping the sear spring...

Nice! Love a 22 pistol. Doesn't get much more fun than that.

Sweet. That is a nice looking little pistol.

I had a High Standard 22LR years ago. Like a fool, I let it go. I remember finding the pet ammo took me a bit, but there was a lot less choice back then.
