    Got a few .22lrs. The best ones I have will group 0.25-0.50"@50yds - 5 shots, double that @100yds regularly. Don't shoot 25yds and 75yds much with rifle. The worst one will do ~1.50-2.00@50yds and about 5.00-6.00" @100yds regularly. I could possibly get the 50yd groups down to ~1.00" if I used match ammo but I'm not willing to waste the ammo to see.

    My stock 10/22 with a 4x Simmons 22 Mag Compact scope on it puts all 10 through a big ragged hole at about 20 yards at the indoor range. That's with cheap ammo, but cheap ammo that it likes.

    A match rifle can do better at 100 yards. But we're talking bolt action single shot with a 36x scope on it, and expensive ammo (for .22LR anyway).

    An interesting option is PMC Scoremaster. It's "practice match" ammo, just a little more $ than regular stuff but subsonic and nice and accurate. It's not the cleanest stuff, but it'll do for accuracy practice. Accuracy nuts clean the barrel a LOT, like every few shots or every shot if they're competing.

    .22LR Benchrest is silly but amazing. I tried it once. Nice people. High financial barrier to entry.:)

    My 24 year old Marlin 60 will put 5 rounds touching or nearly in one hole at 25 and 50 yds, you could cover the group with a nickel. This is from a benchrest, w/ a Bushnell 4x scope and cheap Remington ammo by the brick. This gun has probably 10,000 rounds through it or so, by my estimation, since I bought it new.

    At 75, it opens up to about a silver dollar sized group. At 100 yds, well, opens up to about the size of a coffee can lid or thereabouts. The drop is about 8 - 10 inches at 100 yds, and I don't shoot it that distance often, except just to see what it will do now and again.

    Old, stock Ruger 10/22 carbine (Ca. 1981) with a Bushnell 4x32mm scope will do about 5" groups off a sandbag at 100 yards with 500 round bulk ammo from Walmart. I think 50 yards is about 1.5"-2" with groupings being about ten shots each (the 4x doesn't help a lot at 100 yrds, but is more helpful at 50 yrds). I've never actually paid attention to the groups, I just try to make really big holes out of little tiny holes......even if it takes 50 rounds. :D

    Hmmm

    Ruger 77/22 VBZ worked over
    normal <.5" at 50 yards
    with Eley something or other .25-.40" (Too expensive but)

    KFS NS522
    <.5" with CCI Standard velocity at 50 yards
    Haven't played too much with this one yet. Really doesn't like certain ammo.

    At 100 yards, all of my 22s exhibit a lot of vertical stringing. This is probably the ammo.
    3000 +- 100 not a big deal
    1000 +- 100 big deal

    My best is my old Remington M512 that groups about 3/4" at 50 yards, a little tighter with RWS Target, under 1/2 inch. It's the one I break out for our little club .22 matches. I've placed in some shoots with it, don't remember if I actually won any, but there are no real target .22s shooting and it's very informal. I"m shooting against Marlin M60s and such, not Anschutz rifles or anything.:D My 10/22 will put 'em in a little under 2" as will my cheapo little AR7 Explorer (neat little gun, but not exactly a match grade gun). My old Mossberg M152 will shoot most ammo into 2" at 50 yards, but RWS target is unreal accurate in that rifle and will go under 1" at that range. That gun has never been anything spectacular, just a cheap OLD rifle that my step dad gave me. First time I shot RWS target through it, I about dropped my jaw. :eek: It is mundane ordinary with any other load.

    The majority of my .22 shooting is plinking and small game hunting and all these rifles are fine for that. The 10-22 is my iron sighted gun, will stay that way. I have scopes on the others. A scope would probably shrink the 10-22s fifty yard groups a tad, especially since my eyes ain't gettin' any better. 2" is pretty good, though. I can't get that every time, though. That's just the best I can do with the sights. I have a scope mount for it, but I don't care to bother with a scope. I know it ain't no match grade gun, didn't buy it thinking it would be.

    BTW, I've fired the Eley ammo, but don't remember it being much if any better than RWS Target and it's more expensive. So, I've settled on RWS target for serious accuracy. I don't shoot much of it, though.

    My Romanian .22 caliber training rifle will do just over 1" at 75 yards with CCI minimags, but that doesn't seem to be typical with them.

    Pitbull;

    I don't punch much paper anymore, did that & got bored with it. I hunt what are called 'gophers' here. Actually, they are ground squirrels & more closely related to p-dogs, but about 1/2 size.

    I have two guns that are one shot, 100 yard guns on gophers. A Ruger 77/22 and a Volquartsen 10/22. My Savage MKII .22 was about a 75 yard gun at best, but it's recently been sold to finance: The new CZ 452 American LHB that's going to be wearing a Nikon Monarch 3.3-10X A/O mil-dot.

    I have high hopes for the new kid, we shall see.

    I forgot about the Dynapoint

    It always shot really well out of my Ruger. Walmart doesn't carry it, and Kmart just quit. I've got no reason to go in Kmart. Actually they sell Hoppes Benchrest (Walmart doesn't). Walmart sucks. It's quickly becoming pointless for me to go in Walmart.

    Walmart sucks because

    My Walmart sucks (the managements anyways). I refuse to believe that they don't have the ability to tailor the contents of their store for the area they live in.

    No Archery equipment despite it being late bow season
    No Duck/Goose hunting equipment. They tried to sell me #8 lead 20 gauge for Geese. Didn't even ask what kind of gun I have.
    They're always out of 22lr and 9mm. For god's sake order more of it!
    Their cleaning supply selection is pathetic.

    It's just that the last three times I've been in there, they haven't had anything remotely close to what I was looking for.

    I recently got a CZ 452 bolt 22 and I was very impressed with the accuracy. I fired a few rounds getting it zeroed in and fired off three 5 shot groups at 50 yrds. All were under 1/2 inch, I was using Wolf target ammo.

    Please remember that according to THR rules, all claims to any specific accuracy can be called on for duplication by any member.

    Any THR poster found to be unable to duplicate any accuracy claimed, under pressure of time, under field conditions, upon demand, must buy the drinks for the entire night for the THR member challenging said accuracy claim. :D

    OK.

    I was trying out some lower end ammo through a 10/22 modded with a Bell and Carlson Anschütz (silhouette)-style stock and Green Mountain barrel. Older Leupold VariX-III 6.5-20X40 (non-target). Outdoors at the Grand River public range in NE OH.

    The Wolf Match Extra seemed to do very well. The Fed Lightening and Aquila Match Rifle not so good. The black circle is 1", the grids are 1/8".

    From my experience, 50 yds group does not translate into 2x that size at 100 yards.

    Mine 100 yds groups seems to be 4-5x the size of 50 yards group. I'm not sure what cause this.

    Whatever it is, I'm sure it is not me... :rolleyes:

    Hey HKSW, Where do you get those targets, I really like the layout:)
    Looks like that Green Mountain barrel really shoots.

    I actually did that one in MS Word 2000 (using the Draw toolbar helps quite a bit). IMO, though, I like using Word 97 as you can snap the grid lines down to 0.10" distances. 2000 snap them in goofy distances, 1/27, 1/13.5. You have to edit the endpoints to get them exactly where you want them. I've since modified it making the information section bigger and more spread out for easier writing.

    Let me know and I'll e-mail you a copy if you want.

    With What!?! I can throw remingtons and hit stuff better than shooting them with my custom 10/22. CCI and federal, on the other hand, shoot .5" at 50 yards, all with an aluminum barrel.
