I wanted to get shooting so I borrowed a scope from another rifle. It's a bit much for a 10/22, but it'll do.

Turns out the Leupold custom shop will do scopes in a rainbow of colors. So, I'll do that at some point.

Overall, I'd say the build is a success, the Whistlepig barrel is a performer.

If I were a bit more patient those could be some tight groups. Though, the 10x scope with a fine crosshair still felt "in the way." I'd say that the future holds a "target dot" higher mag scope. When funds allow.

I'm pleased though, and this is the first time I've shot .22lr at that distance. Very relaxing.

Very nice! Thought about doing something like this. Right now I just have my old Marlin60.

Cleaning hole, didn't know there was such a thing. I assume you have to remove the stock to access it?

yeah, you pop it out of the stock if you want to clean from the chamber forward.
