Hey Tom hope all is well,have not been on for a while work,family but still shooting the shell out of the Summit. Open sights doing well . Take care.    Mike.   Wolfer

Hi Mike.

I haven't shot my Summit Ranger since early October.

I am glad to hear that your rifle is shooting well for you.

Just lately, I shot my 25 cal. Hatsan 125 spring gun.


Best Wishes - Tom

Tom,

It was a pleasant surprise for sure. I expected it to shoot well with them, but I really didínt expect it to shoot them as well as it does.
It shoots them into 3/8Ē round holes at 20 and 25 yd. easily when iím ďOn the ballĒ lol.

I have 3 rifles in 22....the summit ranger and a stock 392, and a 392 steroid.... they all shoot this cast pellet equally well!
Looks like the pellet shortage is solved for me; at least, in 22 cal. ;)

Thanks for telling us about this, Buddy. Can you post the appropriate links for these molds?
I'm about ready to dissect all of my pellet traps to get the old pellets out of them for recasting.

Robert,

Iím pretty computer illiterate lol. Donít know how to post links... just google NOE molds.
Select shop, then 22 cal. and the first ones that pop up are the pellet molds.

The one I have is the 20gr. 2cav. brass mold. I use the ladle pressure pour method for best results... just like Wayne 52 does.

Yeah, the second one... brass. I usually go aluminum molds, but I got brass for the pellet mold so I could easily tell it from my bullet molds in al.

Brass or aluminum doesínt really matter... itís just a personal choice.
Brass is heavier... much heavier. I really prefer al molds.
They just sold out recently... iím Waiting on one of his 30 gr. slug molds to be back in stock now.

I haveínt chronoed the ranger with the 20 gr. yet, but will report back when I do.
