I did a 6x5 on the Remington 37 using irons today to get the sights figured out for silhouettes. I have a Redfield Olympic rear but couldn't get it low enough for 50 yards, I'm bottomed out. Luckily I had my Centra rear sight with me so I threw it on until I can come up with a taller front sight dovetail block.

Avg: .452"/.863 MOA
Best: .180"/.344 MOA
Centra rear sight/Redfield International front
Wolf Match Target
50 yards
Great shooting and a beautiful 37! It's good to see more old iron with apertures on the list. I haven't shot in over a month so I may have to get one of my 52D's with apertures out and warm it up and give this another shot.

I'm posting this for comment more than a official entry. :) This was shot at 200 yards with my Vudoo, NF 7-35 from a bench, bipod and rear bag, SK Biathlon ammo. The top left target was the first shot. The dark black circles were easy to see. I'm pretty sure I could determine which bullets belonged in which group. Best group 1.95", average 2.80".

Then I shot the top target with the SH 6x5 target using the diamond as my aiming point. My cross hair covered the diamond and it was hard to see. I changed my scope setting trying to get the group inside the circle. I'm not sure which bullets go with which target.

Last I shot the SH 6x5 target using the circle as my aiming point. It was a little easier to see. I kept changing my scope setting trying to get the bullets in the circle. I can't even guess which bullets go where.

I learned a lesson. For me at least I need to use the whole 8.5 by 11" paper to collect all my shots. Plus I should quit messing with my scope in the middle of a string. :ROFLMAO:

Wind was about 2-3 MPH and didn't mess with me a lot.

I'm still learning. :)

I had the chance to try the 6 X 5 with a recently acquired 1712 Featherweight topped with a Meopta Meopro 4X14 using CCI SV 40 gr ammo. Shot prone at 50 yards (via my Vortex Razor 4000). Started out o.k. but then ended up in the popcorn machine towards the end. Definitely going to give it another run (or 20) because I am the weak link in this set-up.... Wind was 1/4 value left to right.....

A real good start. At 200 yards, being on paper is half the challenge. I shoot 200 yards as well, and I use 6-6 inch splatter targets, black rings with a red dot center. Very easy to see, and make windage adjustments. Plus, you don't have to worry so much about which rounds went with which bull. With practice, you can switch to a two-bull 8.5 by 11 as the next step, when you consistently hit the 6 inch splatter target with all 5 shots. Just a suggestion. Good luck!

I shot 3 different 6x5s today. I used 2 different lots of SK Biathlon and a lot of SK Pistol Match. The Pistol match did the best. I used the last 6 groups. Average; 2.276" and best 1.39". 200 yards, Vudoo, NF 7-35 scope, Bi Pod, rabbit ear rear bag from a bench. I have had good results with SK Pistol Match in the past, but for some reason I have been shooting Biathlon. My averages with Biathlon today were 2.751" and 2.945".

edit to add: I used a better target today. I could see what I was doing. :)

Damn RainierRimfire, that is smoking good with a semi! I know the Kidds are shooters but that is impressive. I have it on the board.

Thanks. X-Act made the difference today. I had been using Center-X with pretty good results, but X-Act
proved its worth.

wow thx for posting the Kidd groups, so little info here on them, im considering picking one up

thx again!

Yeah, do it, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. I have a Vudoo and I wasn’t sure how I’d like a semi but this gun has proved to be a lot of fun. Shooting X-Act for the first time today really tightened my groups up.

I am very impressed with the consistent precision of the Vudoo. Well done.

Melglass, welcome! Is that a RimX your shooting? Also I have your average at 0.954” not 1.075”, did I make a mistake or misread something? I just want to try and be accurate when I post up the results.

I was completely missing target #4 somehow and was averaging the 5 groups for 6. I have it corrected now, sometimes I am pretty damn slow...

Best way I could figure to get 6 on my old archery targets. Beat it by a little today but will wait till I get one worth making you go through the trouble to put on the list.

Yes, I agree with no restrictions on what you shoot or how you shoot it. I modified the “rules”. Let me know what yall think.

jhr1986, I have your Bergara on the results. Welcome to the 6X5
J
Man keeping going this long is great
Been out of the rimfire game a few years
Lots of coyotes needed the air let out of them got hooked on thermal night
Hunts
But to the point
I don’t care who is #1 on the list or what rifle,scope, ammo the use
What matters to me can I beat my last post (probably not)
I have been shooting 22 100yd matches for past 2 years
See all the brands
I only want to beat myself.
Let them run what they brung hope you brung enuff
There are a lot of good shooting going on here
An thanks for hanging in there

Hello everyone: my first 6x5 and only my third outing with this new rifle, a Tikka T1x. 16 inch barrel, A-tek moderator, Primary Arms GLx 4-16x50 FFP scope. The rifle has had about 400 rounds through it at the end of today's shooting. The moderator I pulled off another rifle, so that has had a few rounds through.

Hoping my groups will get better, but here is my first go. Hoping the groups get a bit tighter when I get to know the rifle and the scope (that's also new) a bit more and on a zero wind day. Wind today was about 8mph crosswind at roof level, bit lower at the semi-sheltered firing point.

50 Yard. Average 0.460", Best 0.328" SK Match 22LR, Temp 20C

Don't know if this is in the spirit of this thread or not, but I also shot a 6x5 with an ERMA M1 Carbine: A 1968 West German semi auto 22LR trainer for the M1 Carbine. Open sights. Someone let me know if I should post it.
