    We often hear and Read that .177 is Best for Hunter Rifle Competitions

    But on Saturday @ Lea Valley - Kovit as fairly good shot

    Decided to use my AA400 in .22
    With a Walther 6 x 42 Scope
    And Defiant 5.50's @ 14.00 Grains

    And ended up with a 51/60
    Now he only had a few minutes practise before the match

    And was really pleased with himself

    Aware that there are a few others recently that have returned to .22
    On the Circuit

    Proves the point that you do not need Expensive Gun's and Scopes to do well these day's ;)

    Who's said you do? It's proven what most of us have always said! Give a good shot basic gear and they'll do ok.;):)

    Johnny Smith in the UK's regularly puts in mid 50's with his brick chucker, look at Simon's scores from the Worlds and southern hunters.

    I shot 51 @ Shepreth with my old .22 when I won the .22 class of the Southern Hunters (the rest were mid to high 40's in my 1st year of HFT) ..... It's not impossible to do if you know the rifle well... I think I even had a hawke or BSA on top of it then as well....
