I check once a week for sure - Still a huge fan, due mostly because I love the round. I like different Rounds - Shooting my TCM Ultra MS HC Combo. Reloading yields tumbling but I'm going to work on that again this winter.

I know there is another 22TCM shooter at my range because a RO found 45 pieces of brass on the floor and picked them up for me. What a nice guy. I catch mine in a home made brass catcher that works good but confines your shooting to one position. Still a blast to shoot.

I always let others have a mag to try it out and it's always the same impression - "Holy Shit" -

My reloading supply guy says the round is an abortion - Does what I want - Bang and a big Smile.

Can you imagine if you bought the wrong ammo and got your money back. I was at the range and my RO "TCM Aware" came up and told me a story holding a box of 9r's and said a shooter asked him about these that he bought by mistake - I being a swell guy - gave him $20 bucks and said any friend of yours is a friend of mine.

I wound not buy anymore but the brass is golden.

This is the same RO that gave me 45 spent 22TCM's he found on the elite side of the range on the floor. You bet I gave him $20.

More shooters need to try the tcm,I believe they would surprised and more guns ,ammo would be sold. We need new shooters so pass it along how great the tcm is.

Oldman11,
A couple years ago Armscor sent a email survey out asking marketing questions & also comments (anyone else receive that survey?).
I replied that they needed to allow 22TCM to be SAAMi certified, and other ammo manufacturers to produce ammo.
My thought was that is would open up more interest to the shooting community if it was not so proprietary & make people less skeptical of a "Boutique fade cartridge".
Also the troubles they had with extraction on the pistols & rifles as well as rifle accuracy (poor barrels)was hurting reviews and interest in their products as well as the cartridge.
I have the MS pistol and the rifle, most people that shoot them think they are pretty cool, but only one said he regretted not buying one when he was looking at them.
I am still on the fence about my rifle, it seems to shoot well at short distance's (minute of golf ball at 50yds), but i have not tried it out to 100yds yet and my spent brass seems to expand further than rounds shot in my pistol. It swells the brass noticeably about 3/16" above the extraction groove to the point that I am concerned about case separation. But it sure knocks the stuff'ens out of those golf balls :)

Anyone notice that you seldom see 22 tcm rifles for sale or in stock at Gun stores locally or on the web..
I thought they where coming out with a synthetic stock version? Perhaps it has something to do with tariffs.

The first rifle I had was a bad shooter,I kept it a couple years and then asked for a new one. They sent me a new one without any trouble, arrived in about two weeks. The new one was a whole lot better and was shooting about 11/2 at 100 yds. My friend Bob recrowned the barrel and with his reloads is now shooting close to 3/4 at 100. Very good I would say. The pistol has been a good one from the start. If the rifle does not shoot right send it back,Armscor is a good company and will treat you right. They cannot fix it if they don’t know about it. I’m going to buy another 1000 rds tcm ammo to make sure I have enough.
