Thanks all, interesting thread.

I shoot 22LR rifles pretty much exclusively at 25 yards these days, because that is what is available to me. There are no indoor 50+ yard ranges in the St Louis...

Replies above.

Yeah, could be. But I have a sense that this average-consumer class of barrels breaks in and reaches its potential a lot sooner than a high-grade barrel does. I'll probably plug away at it for a...
