I told him to purchase a Boyd's replacement stock because of the flimsy syn Ruger stock but he doesn't want to invest anymore money on it. I thought that if we filled the void in the forearm with glass it would stiffen up the forearm so it could be free floated. Has anyone tried this approach? I get 1/2" groups with my CZ and I'm starting to feel bad because he may lose interest.
Do you get better groups with his rifle than he does?
Have you checked torque of the action screws?
How often is he cleaning the bore?
My Compact was only capable of around 2" 10-rd groups at 50m for the first 1000rds, then I started getting 1" groups so I moved out to 100m, and put it into an MDT LSS chassis - and shot my first ever sub-MoA 100m group from any .22LR.
I've tested more than thirty ammo types in mine. Worst by far is Win Long-Z, the best is Eley Edge. CCI Standard Velocity is very good and half the price of the Eley. Remington Cyclone and perhaps four others shoot reasonably well enough for plinking under 50m. The vast majority of ammunition I tested was all shooting around 2" to 2.5" groups at 50m in mine, although their point of impact changes. But I need to complete retesting them all now that the rifle is shooting much better.
I've got more than 1200rds since I last cleaned the bore and it's still shooting brilliantly. When accuracy drops off then I'll clean it.
My Rimfire Target arrives next week and I'll be suitably impressed if it can shoot better than my compact.
