I have a stock 10/22 sporter and can put 3 shots on a quarter at 50 yards from my elbows, no rest using CCI Blazers....I'm not complaining with that!

You should enter that rifle in some RBA and IR5050 events. Sounds like a tack driver fer sure, even without match ammo. Wonder how it'd do with some Lapua Midas or Eley Tenex? Have you tried match ammo in it? Just curious.

.5" groups at 100 yards will beat any .22lr rifle out there. You should enter every competition you can find. The custom benchrest rigs wouldn't be able to keep up.

I have a stash of the Australian Power Points from a few years back--they shoot extremely well, but I've only tried 'em at 50 yards and 25 yards. They'd do 1/2" now and then at 50 from a Wilson barreled Ruger I had--at 25 they shot very well.
Is your barrel threaded into the receiver and do you have a tuner on the rifle. Is it full length bedded?

Different Ammo

I have tried several top of the line ammo.. Tenex gives me 3/4 inch groups with an occasional flier, I have some Lapua Midas L and midas M, And scormax Have not had any fit weather to shoot it though . either its too windy or its raining, darn the luck Its too expensive to just shoot it up.. got about a hundred dollars worth of different ammo..I was dissapointed in the tenex as i was told it was the best. 12 dollars a box The Best Ammo i have shot is no longer in production, got .300 inch 5 shot groups at 100 yds with Federal Ultra match UM1 got all i can get and 13 boxes still looking, saving it for competition.. my scope is a BSA Platinum 6X24X44 AO LOve my Harris Bipod.. My dad did not believe me, untill he watched me shoot.. My brother shot against me with his cz and was not even close as far as the group sizes, timed each shot 55 seconds apart, shoots best after 20 rounds thru a clean bore that has been Molly preped, dont know if it matters much.. No special bedding has been done, just a synthetic Butler creek stock with a heavy barreled stainless match grade barrel, Vq seer and Hammer, I done the work myself.. as i am a tool and die maker by trade Hope you can get yours to do this..May have been a lucky break.. oh I'll give you the lot Numbers..on the Winchester PP ammo 1UC12N I wish i could scan my targets but my scanner is busted.. I Think i can compete with this thing, Practice is the Key word..Jamesgem

Hmmmmmmmm ~

With "fish stories" the more they're told, the fish gets bigger ? I guess this also applies to "groop size" ? ? ?
