  • Ghetto rigs


    The TC is a 243 with 4759 behind a RCBS 95g... running around 2200 fps. Tuned,if you miss..... it's on you. 1/2" groups @100. World class Tasco 3-12X50 that came into the shop,bent. Got it for free. After a bit of TLC.... it's holding it's own. Loaded to a slight jam.

    Old ADL R700 action mated to a takeoff 22-250 Sendero brrl in front. This shoots 55g Lee's @3000 fps into tiny holes. Got a trashy Simmons 3-10,that we spent some time with,on it. Honestly....the scope is a joke,considering the potential of the rig? The loading seems to be very tolerant..... meaning,pick a jacketed starting load and go with it. H4895 and Varget are normally what it gets fed.

    Even though I grew up in Compton, CA, I don't know what a "ghetto rig" is...
    I\'ve learned to stand on my own two knees...

      I quit casting 22 caliber bullets. It almost demands using linotype metal and still the eject rate is high. The doen't mention the tact that my fat fingers don't always cooperate.

        I cast .22 cal bullets regularly. I use clip on wheel weights and 1-2% tin. They get gas checked prior to powder coating and sized and hollow pointed after the powder coat. A lot of work, but a lot of fun in a prairie dog town. Easily as explosive as any jacketed varmint bullet out there when run in a 1:12 twist barrel at about 2300 fps using 5744 powder. RD
