Talking CMP Inland Racker SHOOTS!

From a casual rest at 25 yards, 100/150 setting, using the the 25 yard sighting in target from the TM 9-1276 (page 53), 5 shots with Sellier and Bellot FMJ. 4 shots touching, and one 1/2" distant, just above (breathing). Just above the dotted line, center of group 1/2" inch left of dead center. With the manual saying, one click is two inches at 100 yards, one click right should be 1/2" at 25 yards. That is a heck of a group for an Inland racker, especially with a temperature of about 10 degrees and and a windchill of close to zero. I only did one five shot string, as I figured it would go down hill from there! I was contemplating replacing the Type II with a flip sight, but with it shooting this well, I am sure it will be a good match shooter.

BTW, I used the directions on the CMP page to "hang" the barrel in the recoil plate and stock, and it seems to work!

I said it before and I'll say it again, Rackers Rule!

S&B is great ammo too. I've pretty much settled on it and you can find it at a decent price on the internet if you're patient and look hard enough.

congrates on a great shooter!

yea, still waiting on my RG!

My SG's have been GREAT.
Looking forward to the inland racker.
received my DBU the day before xmas eve.

S&B +10. love that stuff, have another brick of it coming. I'm paying must a tad bit more than the Aguila, but from all reports Aguila reports, I think it's worth the difference.

Psssss... Like Gunny said, lets not spread it around too much - at least until I can afford to order 5 or 6 more!

RM, is that great shooting with the new replacement stock or the one that was cracked when you got it??

Default stock

I sent the cracked one back. I have nice SA Type V M2 pot-belley with all new metal that I put it in until the WWII replacement stock comes back from CMP. Unless the CMP stock cleans up pretty nice, it may stay in this one (though I am hoping for cartouches). I could not shoot too much. My wife went to town, so I took my arm out of the sling, padded my repaired shoulder with some foam, measured of 25 yards to a big oak tree from inside the carport (the joys of living in the country) and did the 5 shot group. I know a carbine won't hurt my shoulder 7 weeks after surgery, but she wouldn't believe it!

Did you leave the spent brass on the floor of the carport for her to find - or did you chicken out on that one?????

Hey, glad to hear you finally got to shoot it. I know you have been waiting for a while to do it. And if the shoulder don't hurt, go out and shoot some more!

My racker Winchester is my match rifle.. I found it on the rack at the South Store a few months back. The stock was shellaced and looked a bit crappy, but the barrel was also a Winchester and it gauged....

Wait for it!!!.....

A ZERO!! Ok.. Just a touch over a zero, so if it's anything, it's a .3002". The rear sight at 100 is on the money for 100 yards, too.. I refinished the stock and I just absolutely love this little rifle!! My first match with it scored a silver medal, only 7 points away from a gold medal and I knew I screwed up when I was shooting rapid fire prone, pulling all the shots low and to the right.. 6's and 7's that should have been 8's, 9's and 10's..

I can't wait for next season's matches!!

Are you kidding! Your dang right I picked up the brass! She is a regular Sherlock Holmes. Considering what the docotor had said, I would have been facing "the wrath of Debbie"- a force of nature!

I had done a magazine from the hip with the shoulder in a sling just after I got the Inland to make sure it functioned OK. I picked that brass up too! Yep, I am chicken!

I believe the zero. Mine has less than 1.5" over 3/16" on an M2 ball. Mine had an ugly sanded stock with no cartouches. It cleaned up great, but a found a long crack in the bottom, so CMP is replacing it. It is great getting one that is sighted right on. My Underwood, I had to use the 200 yard setting to be on at 100.
