    Rattler, WAY cool knives.

    You are absolutely correct. Cheek weld? Try CHIN weld. This just won't do at all. I was uncomfortable, and unable to get a good prone position today. I had to crane my neck and put the butt plate in the wrong spot on my shoulder. Just plain not good. I'm not sure how to fix this, unless I get different scope ... legs. This can wait, I am to ditch the scope and go back to iron sights for my initial training. I was also having a hard time with the sling; it was on backwards. The NDS front and rear sights warranted a quick Google, but now that I know basically how they work, they might actually do so. Work. I'll try them. The front sight is claimed to have a large range of movement-- that might be handy later. For now, I just need to learn how to use it all. Elevation is taken care of at the front sight. Weird.

    I am really liking the Eley Edge ammo. As advertised, it leaves a nice, crisp, clean edge where it goes through the target. The powder smells a little sour, but that's just something I'll get used to. I had three stovepiped empty casings that didn't get properly ejected; I'll look into that.

    Fun fact: I'm allergic to Remington powder, whatever they use. It makes my nose run like nuts when I shoot it. That's annoying; no Remington for me.

    actually the problem is the iron sights.....you should decide whether you want iron sights or a scope on it and ditch which ever you dont want for now and get a different scope base and rings that drop the scope lower if its a scope you want.....that rear sight is gonna be in the way for everything but a red dot as far as optical sights.....

    Fix bayonet!

    No, really, fix the bayonet. Yikes!

    Something came in the mail for the carbine. It's a work in progress, right out of the box. It has been sharpened, and used (derp!) to pry something open; I'll have to fix that. The leather grip is falling off, making this thing a perfect candidate for a set of wood scales. Woo hoo!





    Makes a crazy kind of grin, standing there with an M1, bayonet fixed, threatening to perforate or puncture that eeevil shadow on the wall....




    Rattler: Iron it is, for now. It will be as the bossman tells it. I will stow the scope, and get a better base for it later. I'm being bumped back to bench rest shooting, for a bit. Not sure why, but since I never got that time earlier (went straight to prone right out of the box), It'll be a welcome change. I think we're going to work on tuning the Ruger, first. I'm going to secretly work on tuning ME, too! I still can't get a reliable, repeatable sight picture; I know it varies a smidgen, and at these distances, a smidgen means a LOT.

    unfortunately the Ruger 10/22 is not a design that lends itself well to having both a receiver sight and a scope.....an AR-15 does.....whole lot of bolt action rifles can be set up as such but not alot of ways to do it with a 10-22....best to go with one or the other and skip dealing with the "chin-weld" you could make it better by switching stocks but then its going to be a PITA getting your eye to line up with the iron sights and only sorta improve your seeing through the scope properly.....

    just pay attention when you go to buy a scope base cause there are gonna be two different kinds for your10/22....either a normal weaver/rifle base or a Rimfire base......from your pics it looks like the base thats on it now takes normal rifle type weaver style rings which is good....i still use the rimfire base and rings that came with mine and they work fine, you just need to pay attention when your buying cause there is more than one type of base for most rimfires and they are not interchangeable with the rings for the other type....

    I found a set of super short rings in the bag of parts that came with it. I'll try them out later, when I feel like removing the rear sight. But then it's all going back in the bag, for now. Thanks for the tips, I'll remember that.
