    22LR CHALLENGE/CALLOUT
    Gday mate, I just wanted to let you know that the SK match 22LR (red) gets great groups in my LA 101 for a lot less cost then Eley match. So I would try those through your LA 101 next trip to the range. Also RWS do a 22 LR HV round that is great in the field in the LA 101.
    In case you get another Lithgow I can say my LA 101 in 22 Mag that loves 30gr CCI VNT Polymer tip. My LA 102 in 6.5 Creedmoor likes Hornady 143gr ELDX. My mates LA102 308 loves Aussie Outback 165 Sierra SBT gameking. Our Lithgow rifles all shoot ragged holes at either @ 50 (LA 101) @ 100 (102) both indoors and outdoors with those factory loads.

    Hey Mate, just saw your video with cci standard. I’ve been using them for a while now and they are great. Bot a fan of their faster stuff though.

    I noticed that you used a laminate Lithgow 101 in the challenge. I have 4, 2 – 22 mag, 1- 22 lr and 1- 17hmr. I just recently got them. Upon disassembling, I found cracks in the action screw holes areas, especially at the winged recoil lug mortise. These rifles were made in 2016-2017 according to the sticker in the stock forearm channel. Would appreciate you checking to see if your rifle has the same problem. Al 4 of mine do. The action screws take a 3 mm hex bit. I’m in the process of trying to get replacement stocks. As of now, no one in the US imports Lithgow rifles. Davidson acquired the remaining L

  8. Mine is not cracked — are you telling me that Howa is not importing them anymore?

  9. James Miller says:

    Legacy Sports in Nevada was the Importer and Davidsons in Arizona bought their remaining inventory of Lithgow rifles a month or so ago. I recently contacted Lithgow in Australia and they said they have no importer from the US but they are trying to get one. I am surprised that your stock doesn’t have cracks! Did you notice the date on the sticker in the stock forearm channel? Thanks for the quick reply. You are an awesome guy! I really like your day at the range episodes! Thanks again for answering. Jim

  10. I wonder why these are not catching on more in the US. I ordered mine and waited for months on end and have never seen another on in person. Back to the stock, you have me nervous I took it apart again and this time took it out to my bench under the magnifying glass and no cracks. My sticker does not have date it has a code on it (SET.17 Quality Check) Approved by Andrea. But again no cracks.

    And thank you very much for the visiting and giving me feedback on the video’s I continue everyday to try and get better. I wish I was a professional editor. Thank you
