New 22LR Custom from Hill Country Rifle
A customer recently asked us if we could build a custom 22 long rifle that was the same size and weight as our Tactical Course Rifle.
Our answer was an unenthusiastic, " I guess so". Well, we have built two of these so far and now our answer to that question is an enthusiastic, "Hell Yes!" The XR 2500 action from Stiller is outstanding. This feels like a full-sized center fire bolt action rifle. It is an absolute blast to shoot. Benchmark has proven they are still masters at making rimfire barrels. Our first two rifles shot under .25" at 100 yards with factory ammo and that was not even the really good match stuff! We did this one in the same color scheme as the 375 Cheytac we showed in the prior post. Opposite ends of the cartridge spectrum to say the least but you don't need to find a mile-long range to shoot a 22! We have shot these out to 300 yards with incredible results and it is a great way to practice your shooting technique and wind calls.
