    I took my CZ 455 Varmint's out today. 22 LR with Swfa SS 20X scope and Eley Target ammo. 17HMR with a Weaver 24V with CCI Gamepoints 20gr and Hornaday XTP 20gr. I shot some match sticks and split some playing cards at 50 yds. You get 10 shots to remove the heads from 5 matches. 10 shots to split a card. I hit the card with the 22LR on the 3rd shot. The 17 HMR on the 5th shot.

    The second card for the 17 HMR, I changed to Hornaday 20gr. XTP. I hit the 4 times in a row, splitting it on the 4th. The group in the left corner, is 3 CCI GP and 3 HOR XTP in 0.310"

    Always fun to shoot at something besides paper targets , I think alot of people forget this... Golf tees and playing cards are my favorite at fifty , balloons at way further... Good shooting...

    Try uncooked Couscous at 50 yards ten pieces total ten shots. Use one strip of tape to set them on and a clear tape on top to hold them on.

    Please tell me which is harder to do, the couscous or the match sticks?

    Both are stock 455 Varmints, with a trigger spring replacement.

    Balloons are my favorite. Take some baby powder or flour with you to the range. Pour some in the balloon and shake it the balloon before mounting it. A small funnel helps get the powder in. When you score a hit, you'll get a large puff of white at the same time.
