If all of these suggestions (all good ones) still leave you with a problem, consider trying some SK Standard+ ammo. When the temperature gets colder, the waxy lube on the CCI will harden a bit and...

I don't have a full Greenlaw rest, but I added one of Dan's adjustable tops with the slick material to my Caldwell Rock BR base. It was a noticeable improvement and showed such in my scores. D.R....

There was also an original single shot adapter on eBay. Last I checked, it was around $265. I believe the new builds from Steve are around $100 ( don't quote me on that). I have heard no serious...

I have to give a +1 for the Mueller scope line. I have the 4.5-14x, the 6-18x and the 8-32x Mueller's. Very nice in their price range. Google Mueller optics and check out their specs for each...

If I am looking at your target correctly, it appears that the Geco Match is the winner here. R-50 may do better, but at 4 or 5 times the price per box. If you are happy with the Geco results, your...

If budget is a concern for your scope purchase, do look at the Mueller 4.5-14x. Good value and decent performance for $200 or less. Good size and weight for a walk around rifle. Mueller's 6-18x...

Alex is a true artist. His pillar and bedding work is absolutely outstanding. And to top it off, he is as personable as a man can be. Top notch in every way. Highly, highly recommended.

To simplify my original post and answer to OP's questions more directly:
1. Yes
2. Same target
