Thanks Mark!  Another classic from the Cinnabar!

I am a bigger fan of the .22 Hornet and looking forward to a future video on the 54, 70 and 43 in that caliber 😉

Great video, Mark. I’ve owned several M65s and have yet to shoot them, which in hindsight seems shameful. Maybe I need to pick one up again. 

Here’s a few pics of my M43 in 218 Bee. It sports an early exposed knob Weaver K6 scope that was available right about when this rifle was built. This rifle belonged to my father, and I was fortunate enough to shoot a few prairie dogs with it when he would make a trip now and again from Iowa to Wyoming. Good memories, for sure.

Hi Mark-

Great video, thanks!!!

I’m EAGERLY awaiting the future 22 Hornet episode co-starring the illustrious Bert H!!!  I want to see what Bert can do offhand at 150 yards… Laugh  Of course you can edit out Bert’s “out takes” (misses)… LaughLaughLaugh

FWIW… I had a couple friends over to the farm a couple weeks ago.  We didn’t shoot my M43 in 218 Bee, but their seven year-old son Hunter took a few shots with my M43 Special Rifle in 22 Hornet.  I think he’s going to be quite a marksman, given that his arms aren’t yet long enough to put the butt against his shoulder.

Keep up the good work!!!

That’s fantastic Lou!!  I love seeing the next generation (or two) being introduced to our kinds of rifles!  That’s a big part of why I started this channel.

Sounds like there’s a lot of interest in the 22 Hornet.  I don’t have a rifle chambered in that caliber, so I’ll either have to be on the lookout for one or, better yet, talk Bert into that collaborative episode.  Not to worry, I’ve gotten a lot of practice at editing out misses.  Laugh Mark

Great video, Mark. I have a lot to learn about the 43, 65 and the 218Bee. Thanks for the tutorial. I’ve heard about guns that shoot better from the shoulder than the bench, that may explain this 65.

Not too worry… I have a few 22 Hornet rifles that we can use for a new episode! Cool

It will have to wait until this coming Springtime though… I just got through my second cataract surgery this past Wednesday morning and I am still recovering.

Hope all goes well with your recovery from the cataract surgeries.  We’ll look forward to testing out those newly restored eagle eyes with some shooting.  The rock chucks and sage rats will be out in the spring as well.  Erin and I will be looking forward to seeing you.  Mark
