I shoot mine last week, I've had it since 2007, and it's had about a box of shells in it. My 50 yard target with old CCI looked about like yours, but my Eley was about a 1/2 inch group. Eley seems to...

If you haven't done so, remove the action from the stock and clean the grease from the trigger, that will improve most of them. We shoot all brands of ammo and find that all of it will work in some...

Maybe while cutting the chamber a shaving got in front of the reamer pilot and was between the pilot and the barrel? To be as uniform as it is, it must have been done while machining and no other...

I can't find a good drawing for the 33 bolt and it appears to be a one piece bolt, not like the 580 series which can be shimmed. I believe that the barrel would need to be set back to best fix this....

Check the firing pin to be sure it is free to move, 5 teen rifles will crud up. Maybe a disassembly of the bolt and a good cleaning will do it, I just did that to a 541 for the same reason.
