Default Remington 37 & Litschert 15X Scope

I recently was able to buy this from a guy I met last fall, said he owned a number of target rifles & would probably sell some in the future. A couple of wks ago I stopped & asked if he would sell any, & left with this one. Remington model 37 [.22 LR] with Remington rear adjustable peep sight with a Redfield globe sight on the front. Made in 1952 it has the 1940 updates as well. This week I found a scope at the right price for it, a R A Litschert 15X scope with Unertl type rings, etc. It came with the single shot magazine & I was able to purchase a 5 rnd mag for it as well.

Default Remington 22 LR rifles

Sir.
Great rifle to find and to have. I find them to be very accurate.
Here is a pic of a couple of mine.
Top is 37/40 with a 20X Unertl.
Bottom is 40-X with 4X for hunting Wild ARIZONA Desert Lizards.
Both these came with very good peep sights for 3 position work.

Default ammo?

RdrBill, what ammo brand is the most accurate in your model 37, I have seen some owners like standard velocity best.

Sir.
No answer for best ammo to use.
Have not shot for groups on paper for 10 years.
Almost anything is good for Minute of Lizard.
The 37/40 does not get used anymore. The 40-X is a deluxe plinker.

To find an ammo that an individual rifles likes? I start with Eley Club or Team. If necessary go up from there. RWS also has Target and R-50, & R-100. Lapua has a few also, but Wolf Match and Match Extra were good also. Try and stay away from High Velocity, stick with Standard Velocity or sub-sonic. I bought a brick of Winchester T-22 but haven't found a gun the likes it yet (only tried it in 3 of my pile of rifles). It just takes time!

As a collector, I like the Winchester model 52. As a shooter I've had Anschutz model 54's and Walther KKM's, but my best was the model 37. Federal Champion shot better than I could.
