    We have matches at a local range of which I have never attended. I have several nice .22's and I am challenged to enjoy shooting. I need to get off my poor perception and give this round a better chance. You can spend .30 a round for good match ammo, of which I have mucho. Yet you can buy cheap .22 that shoots well.

    I just got my back cut on so .22 needs to be in my future.

    Happy to help. I hope there's something in your area that you can get in on. I found an article about one of the matches near here (about 4 hrs drive from me, so a long weekend).

    Those little savages generally shoot pretty well. A friend has one that likes CCI Standard Velocity, so he shoots that in practice and then switches to higher end ammo for matches (Midas, or maybe Center-X, I think). The CCI stuff is pretty heavy on the wax and does tend to gum up the gun, especially since his MKII seems to have a pretty tight chamber. I shoot mostly SK Plus out of my CZ455. I'm not serious enough about it to spend on ammo any better than that.

    Rifle Basix sells a replacement trigger for the MKII, but I think there are also some tutorials floating around online for a DIY trigger job.

    I love my 22s. I love the centerfire stuff more, but there is something magical about shooting plates at 200 yards with a 22lr. I'll bet you'd enjoy one of those matches though some of the positional stuff isn't always bad-back friendly.

    I took it to 200y steel yesterday. My hold was 27 MOA. Or 54”



    I also chronod my rounds.

    Eley averaged 1080. CCI SV (which shoot very well) were 1050. American eagle was 1180 and golden bullet was 1250. CCI quiets were 730.

    Those CCI quiets at 100 yards are so slow you can see the bullet in the air.

    The gun is still light enough for shooting it like a 22 too. I think that, and as Pappabear mentioned, the 2.5c per round ammo is very appealing.

    I have a CZ 455 and have been testing ammo. But only so far at 25 -50 yards. Just to get some general ideas.

    Best Ammo:
    Winchester wildcat -- now this was an old box adn it was white with orange print. I haven't been able to buy some of the new to see if it's the same.
    Winchester SuperX red plastic box
    CCI MiniMAG



    Good Ammo
    Fed Gold Medal Match -- this was old too. White box blue print
    Aguila SubSonic - Yellow box --- **** This ammo shoots HIGH... don't ask me why but I had about 10-12 different ammo and it landed on the target above the target I was shooting at. 8.5x11 piece of paper with multiple targets... it landed 3" high but a nice group.
    Geco 22lr RIFLE SILVER
    Geco Match GOLD
    Eley CLUB Orange


    Not Good ammo: - I would not call what this stuff did would actually be called a group.
    Browning Perf Target
    CCI Quiet
    Federal Target Gold Medal ORANGE BOX -- not same as Gold Medal above
    Federal P??? Match.. can't read my writing. looks like it starts with letter P
    Federal HiPower - red box
    Remington Thunderbolt - Green box bulk
    S&B Subsonic
    Geco Semi-Auto - ORANGE

    If I had to pick 2 for my rifle regardless of cost.
    Winchester SuperX
    CCI MiniMag
    In Subsonic it would be
    Aguila Sub but it does not group at 50 yards like the above.

    What can you do with it? Looks like you could pick off a lot of critters with it.

    I also have a 22lr CZ 455. I shoot it at 110 yards almost every other day with cheap Winchester 36 grain, experimenting has shown me it's about as good as anything else.

    That’s a beater .22? I wonder what you would call my 35 year old Marlin 60 that has a gazillion rounds through it.

    Good shooting!

    Altus in Baker FL is doing an NRL 22 series:

    That may be a bit of a drive for you, but I think you've mentioned shooting a centerfire match there.
