    Not that it's too hard to do!

    Took the barrel ring off and noticed an improvement. Sanded the stock so the barrel did not touch and got this group.

    And trust me, I am NOT that good of a shot!


    Will my Anschutz become a safe queen???? Could be as that outshoots me too.

    You forgot to mention the distance you shot that group at.

    Yep, 40-45 yards. I'll never be able to do it again!

    Crazy how much just floating the barrel a bit changed this gun. But I like it.

    Nice shooting!

    My wife asked for a 22 rifle for this past Christmas, so I got her a 10/22 and threw a pink Hogue stock on it, along with a Burris FFII 3-9x40 I had that wasn't being used.

    I set up a target at 50 yards, and from a bench made from a folding sawhorse and a Caldwell Rock Jr. I fired 10 shots in about 20 seconds.

    CCI SV grouped at 1.05", with six shots in a nice 0.45" cluster and four fliers above that opening it up to just over an inch. I bet if I sorted the SV I could eliminate those fliers.

    Federal Automatch put 10 shots into 0.80", with 9 shots into 0.6" and a single flier opening it up.

    With accuracy like that from essentially a stock rifle and bulk ammo, I'm not seeing much value in the huge 10/22 'accuracy' aftermarket...

    Mine responded well to the same thing. I did a bedding job too where I made an epoxy bed at the base of the barrel, and around the receiver.
