I also strongly recommend a twenty-two. My first handgun was a beautiful 1970s S&W Model 41 target pistol in .22. It still shoots better than I do. A smallbore never outlives its usefulness --- the progression amongst firearms enthusiasts typically returns to the .22 after forays to more heavy hitters.
Speaking of which...
This one isn't mine, but identical:
And a few others...
Smallbore competition rifle.
Ruger Red Label
a .50 caliber AP at 300yds into a 1/2" steel plate
Jon, I have a few 700NE cartridges, this is one of mine. They run about 60-80 for the common ones.
Lastly, Tokyo, I like HKs as well, this is a quiet Tactical. I live in a great state.
