Follow up… S&W M&P15-22

Rourke shooting the M&P-15-22 .22LR

I have had the opportunity to go shoot my Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 once again – and was not disappointed.

This past weekend I headed over to a friends house for a cookout with several weapons including the M&P. Lucky guy has a 50 and 100 yard range on his property.

I fired another 150 rounds of CCI Mini-Mags with no problems. Most of my shooting was at 50 yards – however I did venture out to 100 yards for two groups.

The first group fired I was not even sure if I would be on target. Turned out I was – and did pretty well. My group was low but ran to 8″. I was happy.

I decided to shoot another and pay a little closer attention to my breathing ¬†and steadiness. Shooting from a bench – but not a rest – I managed a respectable 6″ inch group.

For me and my skill level – a 6″ group at 100 yards with a semi-automatic open-sighted .22LR rifle is pretty good.

Looking forward to next time.

  1. Sounds like you had a good time. That is very respectable with open sites at 100 yards. You get quite a bit of elevation drop with a .22 at 100 yards so a 6″ group is very good. They are so much fun to shoot and hardly cost anything for ammo. Glad you had a good time.

  2. Sounds great. I’m working on obtaining a few of these for training to go along my AR-7’s and 10/22’s.
    All the data and reviews have been gonr regaarding this platform.

  3. There’s little fun quite like killing paper with a .22 caliber rifle or handgun. My boys love going to the local outdoor range with their Marlin .22 bolt-action rifle. It makes for an afternoon together at the range that is both easy on the shoulders AND wallet.
