I was referring first to my rifle which has no abnormal bullet damage and second to a very slight flat on the top of the bullet tip which I was surmising might be caused by contacting the underside...

Right: The damage to those rounds shown in the photos above is WAY, WAY more than normal. This AM I loaded up a good (new) BX-10 magazine with five new rounds and manually fed and ejected each with...

Trigger progress

I got the Kidd single stage trigger, installed it, it felt fine: PERFECT break, pull as ordered. I took it to the range. Oops -- hammer failed to reset maybe one shot out of three.

Sometimes...

Bad TD Groups

I'll throw a few ideas out for whatever they're worth.

1. With a new rifle I'd shoot just a bit before any mods. There's a lot to a well-shooting rifle and it's easier to track down a problem...

I hate data

... facts are often inconvenient.

A 'somewhat soft' bedding of the front receiver lug was pretty good and a 'hard' one (an aluminum plate epoxied in place of 1/16" cork) was terrible. Just for...

Ammo data

Here are data on various subsonic ammo I've tried. The numbers are just five round groups from a single box so not precise. I've marked the kinds that gave best results in my TD with '*'(good) ...

More progress

A couple more range days with the SWFA scope linked above, one with the bedding I was using before and one with more rigid bedding.

1. The scope is fantastic. The glass and reticule are better...

More small steps

I checked the SWFA website: The scope I have on order (it's in my state now per UPS, delivery Tues.) is made in 6, 10, 12, 16, 20 power in the same 14" (plus a bit) package, also 3-15x for those who...

Another step sideways

After further tests with various ammo gave strange and variable groups -- five shots divided between two one-hole groups 5/8" apart at 12 and 6 o'clock, then repeating with the groups at 9 and 3...

TD shank recommendation

Thanks; I'm never sure how interesting these novel-length stories are but if they're useful to anyone then they're worth the few minutes.

Sierra, when I do it again I'll probably shoot for...

Looks like it's getting there.

Doubled was most 50Y groups 1" to 1-1/2". Not Good!

This time I guessed right and kept the J-B Weld at the butt end of the receiver. After some further work (below) I shot a 25Y group with...

Progress or something

Fascinating; THANKS! My 'new' makeover (regular 10/22 cut down for TD use) is 0.499 at one end and 0.4992 at the other and you don't just slap it together. The use of anti-seize grease is critical...

Got to the range a couple of times. WINDY -- Pretty bad the first time but much better the second. Having changed everything in the process of installing the new barrel I had a whole new set of...

Odds and ends

I did get a chance to shoot a few rounds at 25Y today; function was flawless. The new barrel seems to be okay. Three in one hole and two more almost touching: 3/8" group but my position was...

New barrel installed, trigger work done

Easily the hairiest job like this I've done, but the 10/22 'standard' SS barrel has been adapted to TD service and the shank is 0.499 diameter -- very snug fit. With the fit this close use of an...

The effect of ammo

Two targets shot back to back with my TD, same rifle same everything except ammo. The first is five rounds of Eley Tenex -- about the most costly stuff you can buy at around $18/50 (I think), 1085...

Small steps forward ...

First, the step back: I cannot get the 0.001" shims to stay glued; after taking it apart and putting it together no more than half a dozen times it starts to peel. I have already determined that...

Some progress

At the range again today; all groups five shots. The first two are at 50Y, the third is at 100Y. There were two other decent 50Y groups in about 35-40 rounds through the rifle. Every group of...

How crummy.

However, I'm not sure what to expect at 50Y with low price ammo; I've never shot it beyond 50 feet and even then I don't know that I've shot at a target rather than a can or other...

Still more 10/22 accuracy ...

I have and I may get there -- but not yet. I'm kind of a low-budget 10/22 guy and I'm not out of other things that I know need to be done.

Recent progress and plans for the future:

1. I...

Nothing spectacular to report; I shot both Wolf MT and Fiocchi Official 300 again and got similar results as last time: The Wolf has the tightest group but with fliers and the Fiocchi is almost as...

Congrats on that!

Replacing the barrel could be the fix for a loose barrel-to-receiver fit. The bolt could have had too much head space. Certainly five touching at 50Y is excellent.

Did...
