Continuing Savage B22 FV-SR Review: Smallbore Silhouette Match Shoot

More practical testing! This time I took the bone-stock Savage B22 FV-SR to a Smallbore Silhouette Match. Let's see how it performed!

The rimfire egg challenge was a lot of fun. I liked how it challenged my shooting skills in three stances. Now for something very different, and very difficult.

Silhouette shooting allows only one stance - standing, offhand. No muzzle devices are allowed. No slings. No supports of any kind. The steel targets are very small, and located at four distances. You have chickens at 40 meters, pigs at 60 meters, turkeys at 77 meters, and rams at 100 meters. Keep in mind that you may only use .22LR ammunition or slower, and no specialty ammo like CCI Stingers are allowed.

Serious competitors choose a heavy target rifle and a high-magnification scope. In my case, I've using a Savage B22 FV-SR and a 5-20x50mm Weaver Grand Slam Multi-Stop scope that was a brilliant choice for this match. The Multi-Stop elevation turret let me easily spin up to the color-coded elevation points, and then I handled windage with the MOA hash marks in the modified target-dot reticle. I had a lot of fun shooting in two relays, but I did score pretty low. 14/40 in the first relay; 11/40 in the second. With a heavy stock to add mass and re-balance the rifle, I could probably pick up quite a few more points. The plastic stock works well as a compromise between hunting and range purposes. A dedicated B22 silhouette rifle needs a more vertical grip, and a better balance toward the rear of the gun. Hopefully soon we'll start seeing aftermarket stocks from Boyds.

Silhouette shooting

Some video of centerfire silhouette shooting near the Riverhead range, Auckland. Distances is 200m only, so the other targets are scaled to match. Usually rams the last target is set at 500m away.

If you think you're an ace shooter, try silhouette shooting sometime. 200m+, free standing with no slings, gloves or shooting aids. Sorts out the COD players from real shooters :-)

The quieter shots in this video are from a suppressed Remington 700 in 223, and a suppressed Howa 1500 in 223. The vapour trails seen are from the 223's, both zeroed to 200m and used in the other videos on long range rabbit sniping.

Long Range Target Shooting - Smallbore Rifle Silhouette

Smallbore Rifle Silhouette can improve your ability to shoot offhand. Find out more at
When shooting in a Rifle Silhouette match you're not seeing how close your bullets were to the center of a targets, it is a matter of if you hit the targets.  The scoring is as simple as you have knocked it down, or you missed.  You shoot at 4 different targets which are Chickens, Pigs, Turkeys and Rams, all set at different distances.  The arcade aspect of the competition is appealing to most everyone.  If you hit where you wanted, you see the target fly off of the stand.  There are disappointing moments seeing your misses just off the edge or between the legs of the Ram and the moments where you feel fortunate because you nicked it just enough to make it topple over.  You can get mentally involved with the pressure to hit that 5th in a row or 10th in a row to win a pin.  You already know you have the 4th or 9th consecutive and you know you will need the next one to complete it. That can be a nice feeling to see the last one fall completing 5 or 10 in a row and getting a little bit of a boost in the personal challenge the sport has to offer.  It is a tough sport in the beginning but do not be discouraged by your initial results.  The average shooter will start with a score of less than 30% of the targets knocked down.  There is no telling how well or how fast any individual will progress but, everyone improves their shooting ability with the experience.   The skills learned here can be very useful in other sports as well as hunting.  It builds coordination with the rifle and skill with the trigger pull helping to keep the shots on target.  There is an excellent handicap system.  There are 5 different classes based on the amount of targets you can knock down.  You will be competing against others with your same skill level.  As a your skill level increases you will move up in classification. Personally I started in the Hunter rifle in B Class (lowest) and the Standard Rifle in the A Class (second lowest).  Over time with practice and experience I was able to work up to Master Class in both rifles.  Only similar practice and experience will determine which level will be your best.  NOTE: It does not take expensive equipment to try this sport.  In the beginning your ability to hold steady on target and fire correctly will be the biggest factor in determining your score. This is offhand shooting training at Rifle Silhouette target shooting. Rifle Silhouette is long range target shooting at steel targets. More info at
