    Finding the right ammo that it likes and a high quality trigger and you can drop those groups to 1/3 of what you shot.

    What's your go-to .22lr ammo of choice?

    Generally speaking, I just go plinking at the range for fun and so usually just get the bulk Winchester stuff. I have a Rem 597 and it operates it as well as any other ammo I've tried in terms of cycling the action, no failures to eject, etc. And it's CHEAP. So it runs well, but I'm wondering if more premium ammo would have better consistency?

    One of these days I should try to see what it's really capable of. Although I suspect 95% of any accuracy/consistency issues are down to the operator.

    It was in original condition, faded red, well-worn, but nice.
    This was and still is my favorite combination; beautiful, original, and worn.

    My 10/22 likes winchester 40gr dynapoints of all things. Yes, some of the Ely ammo will slightly outshoot it, bit an average of 1" groups at 100 meters isn't bad...for a 10 round group. That is prone off of double bags. Mine is an early blued target model, laminate stock, floated, & a Volquerson trigger that I worked over. I havent measured the trigger, but its probably 1-1.5# pull. The thought of pulling the trigger will send it. It is safe though and thats what you have to look for. Place on safety, unloaded of course, and let it drop about 2" onto a solid floor or concrete. IT SHOULD NOT DISCHARGE. I mention it, because it is a thing with light triggers.

    10/22 and finding the right ammo is a serious outing

    Same with the Ruger Mark series pistols

    The choice of ammo makes a HUGE difference in group sizes, like Scott, I have a "Tweaked" 10/22 but the group size differed quite drastically depending on the ammo I ran through it

    After I built it up, I went and bought one box of every single type of .22 they had at the store and spent the day at 50 yards shooting groups, narrowed it down to about 5 brands that shot really well, and moved out to 100 yards. After narrowing it down to 1 brand I went back to the store and starting buying bricks of that ammo that day from that lot of ammo

    Still have some left That was 25 years ago


    PS: Oddly mine also likeed the 40gr HP the best for group sizes,

    Thanks for the feedback folks.

    I probably should tweak it and try some different ammo. Right now using CCI sv, but I genuinely think a lot of the variation there is down to the user ��

    Not sure how i never came across this part of the forum.. Something else to talk about besides shaving will be nice...
    I picked this up a few months ago when our local Gander Outdoors was going out of business.. Sale lasted quite awhile with most of store 40%-50% off except for guns/ammo which stayed at 15%.. Until I walked in on the last weekend open when all remaining guns were 40% off plus a little nore if a member!! Place was nuts with a waiting line at gun counter for over an hour for purchases.. I was a little faster with my CPL but still was a wait..
    This is a Sig Sauer Sub Compact 9mm P320.. First Sig ive owned and had only shot around 100 rounds through until i brought it with me while driving south for Holiday vacation.. Cousin took me to his local range and ran over 500 rounds through her without a single flaw.. For me the highlight is the trigger, almost perfect for my taste straight out of the box and it comes back on target rather nicely also.. Better than my Glock 19?. Not sure on that yet but no regrets buying so far..
    Other gun I purchased at 40% off was a Weatherby Vanguard .243.. Have not shot that yet..Name:  20200107_020754.jpg

    Thanks.. I only went there because i had heard it was going to be the last weekend they were to open.. The store by that time was almost empty because of the massive liquidation of stock @ up to 75% off was nuts so didnt expect to come out with anything.. But when i saw the discount on the guns i just couldnt pass that deal up... Feel i got very lucky because the doors were locked shut the next day..
