    Yes. Most everyone here will recommend perfecting the fundamentals with a .22 before going bigger

    The BMR stock feels very tiny. It also takes BMR mags, which are new and can be hard to source.

    If you want a 22lr trainer, consider a 700 footprint B-14r. It’s more reasonably priced than a Vudoo or RimX, but you can run into some known issues (though both Vudoo and RimX also have their own issues).

    Here’s my standard warning on rimfire trainers:

    You have to be very mindful of your recoil management fundamentals. The lack of recoil on a 22 will let you get lazy and sloppy without realizing it, and it will come back to bite you when you start spending more time on a centerfire.

    B14r or CZ457, can’t go wrong with either.

    But yes, a .22 will directly help your fundamentals with a center fire.

    Edit: disregard two post in about six minutes on the same subject.

    Yes and no. Is my opinion. Yes it will help you in shooting off barricades and building better positions. It also really helped me with getting on target quicker. What it can hurt you at is recoil management cause you find yourself shooting from positions that would be terrible with a 308 because you dont have to really worry about what it’s gonna do when you pull the trigger
