JC Higgins model 103.229 .22 caliber bolt action

Post by RRCmdrBennett on January 20th 2014, 12:07 am

Ben, one of my Rangers and I were talking about attending the Men's Advance (www.mensadvance.net) in March. Its essentially a men's retreat but they say men advance not retreat. Anyway, they do .22, paintball, shotgun, archery, and rod & reel casting accuracy competitions. 

The gun competition is open sights only.  The rifle I gave Ben is scope only. He is going to borrow his grandfather's JC Higgins model 103.229 bolt action rifle. He can't find too much info on it except say its basically a Marlin model 81. Its marked .22 on he barrel but no LR or Long Rifle after it. He needs to know if its LR or not.

Be advised, however, that changing types of ammunition will change your point-of-impact on the target.

I was trying out a bolt-action .22 rifle at/about 75 feet. .22 shorts hit about 3 inches lower than .22 LR.

Do you think Longs and LR's would differ much? I figure shorts would since they'd have less powder.

We'll probably be shooting LR ammo.

I was always under the impression that LR had more powder than Longs. Have I been wrong all this time about that??? Say it's not so! I was wanting to save my one wrong per year for a little longer than January! What a Face

So that's a fairly substantial jump in powder.

Phew! Glad I didn't hit my quota too early in the year... Wink

I'm watching you Philip...

Either way their fps isn't that far off. The overall length is very close to the LR.  Longs cycled well through my old Remington 597. I wonder what the differencein accuracy would be.

The original .22 cartridge was the .22 Short invented by Smith & Wesson for their pocket revolvers in 1857.  It had a 29 grain bullet over 3 grains of black powder and generated about 44 foot/pounds of energy (although current smokeless loads can produce up to 80 foot/pounds).

The .22 Long came in 1871.  It loaded a 29 grain bullet propelled by about 5 grains of black powder and produced about 67 foot/pounds of energy.

In 1880, the .22 Extra Long was produced.  It had a 40 grain bullet propelled by 6 grains of black powder and developed about 98 foot/pounds.  It was noted for poor accuracy, and was discontinued in 1935.

In 1887, the .22 Long Rifle came about with a 40 grain bullet, with similar power, but better accuracy than the .22 Extra Long.  Current loadings for it generally use a 30 to 40 grain bullet (not including the heavy subsonic bullets) and produce between 104 and 200 foot/pounds of energy.
