I have shot my bolt action .22lr in a few local Steel Challenge matches. I bought a Ruger American 22 bolt action because it takes the 30 round magazines so I could shoot in the match. I use a low power scope. And I do this for the purpose of burning in muscle memory to reload and get back on target as fast as possible. I get some snickers and some "why" questions, so I explain, that I hunt with a BA and regular scope. I usually finish about in the middle overall. Semi-auto jams and center fire pistol misses at the longer shots help push me up in the scores. I just did the math on the last match I shot in and it works out to 1.2 seconds a plate. Fun fun fun. I know it is not the same as shooting a big gun as fast as I can, but I can not handle more that 3 quick shots with the -06, if that.
