Default Re: Vibratory trickler.

Had a conversation with Paul Hoskins yesterday, and he suggested trying 80-grain bullets in the Contender, (that has the 1:8 twist barrel on it), to try and get a subsonic load that I can actually hit something with. I thought I had some of the 80-grainers, but I don't. The heaviest I have are 70-grainers. I also have 69 and 63 grain bullets. Maybe one of them will work for a precise subsonic load. Honestly, I'm not that interested in subsonic. I'm interested in a "reloadable" .22 magnum or .22 long rifle. Something in the 1200 to 1600 f/s muzzle velocity range. It's not difficult to get to those MVs, it's just been impossible to get them go where I point them.

I might buy a pound of Tin Star if I can find it, but I don't have much hope that it will work any better than Trail Boss, and Trail Boss did not 'work' with the wide variety of bullets I tried.

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32

"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful." ~ C.S. Lewis.

Do not confuse technical skill for wisdom and do not confuse strength for skill. Paul Skvorc
