Default Lithy 101 Range Report.

I had a chance to get my Lithgow 101 out to the "local" indoor range.
The rifle is fitted with a Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 BCD Rimfire scope and some cheap CCOP QD rings.
I tried out more than a few different types of ammunition too, just to see how they go. I didn't use any "match" grade ammunition though, this is a hunting rifle.
All groups were shot at 50 metres and all are 5 shot groups.
The "10" ring is 25mm in diameter.
The indoor range has very poor lighting making it hard to see the target if you are at the far edge of the range like I was.

The Highland 40gn HP shot very average groups.


Winchester 40gn HP Power Points looked pretty good.



I also tried Winchester 40gn HP Subsonics.


I was given some of the new Winchester 42gn HP Power Point Max to try out. I was very impressed.




Even CCI Stingers shot fairly well.


I also did a remove / reattach scope test to see if I would get a return to zero. I shot a 5 shot group with Winchester Subsonics, removed the scope, refitted it and shot another 5 shot group. I'd say it was pretty good.


I'll hit the range again and give some more ammunition a go and try to get the middle shooting lane for better lighting.
This rifle does shoot well. It feeds perfectly and cycles very smoothly. But I still can't "love" the plastic stock. There's just something about it. That said, this is a great rifle.
I'm looking forward to the .308 version when it is released.
