    I've recently been bitten by the long range bug again, and hard... I have been considering finally spending the money on a .22 trainer, so this thread is pure gold for me. Definitely interested in being able to replicate a centerfire platform in .22LR and am curious, if any of you guys with experience with "full size" 22 precision guns were to go through the research and purchase exercise again knowing what you know now, where would you start? I'm of the mentality that if you're going to buy something, it's best to spend money on quality and do it right the first time.

    So, any thoughts? I'm especially curious about a Compass Lake 22LR upper for the moment, as I seem to reach for my 18" AR far more often than anything else these days for distance...

    Here's the rabbit hole that I started down...

    https://forum.snipershide.com/thread...-r700.6395085/

    My boy got more interested in shooting ARs last year and this year and our local Praire Dog match got cancelled permanently, and getting down to Hoser's is a pain with time and distance. That all saved me from going overboard.

    One thing that Hoser has at his PRS22 matches is a mover target. That is pretty neat. I haven't run the math on it yet. I know 22lr is 1/4 scale 308 in distance/measurements, but I'm not sure if it is 1:1 in time- as in do leads work the same if you scale the targets...
    I just did two lines of powdered wig powder, cranked up some Lee Greenwood, and recited the BoR. - Outlander Systems

    Holy rabbit hole Batman!

    What a great read, thanks for the link. Interesting how the ratios and drop truly are quite comparable to 1/4 scale. I just ran a mild comparison (not a precise one, and purely with theoretical numbers) between 22LR (Lapua 40gr.) and .308 (175gr. OTM), and the time in flight doesn't match up nearly as consistently as the drop compensation.

    I didn't run windage data, but according to the Finaccuracy article mentioned on SH, windage data is accordingly scaled https://finnaccuracy.com/blogs/fa-ne...best-out-of-it

    Interesting stuff... This isn't helping to talk me out of spending entirely too much on a .22LR trainer build. Coupled with a few 1/4 sized targets, I might just find myself with a very capable solution for shooting at "long distances" in a compressed range.

    Very cool.
