Thatís the 25-yard rimfire range, but a little further to the back targets. Thereís another rimfire-only bay right next to that one that has a similar setup to 50 yards. Really great to have a close range thatís rimfire friendly!

For sure she is my favorite rifle!

Rem Custom Shop Target back from Custom Shop for Extractor repair.
Only took 5 months, I think they put it in a corner and lost track of it?
No charge, under warranty but the rifle is like at least 15 years old.
How long does the Custom Shop warrant their rifles?
CMP Eley ammunition at 50 yds.
Achilles heel of this rifle is the trigger. Remington will not work/adjust trigger and consequently it is too heavy with a bit of creep. Take up creep and you waste time taking up the force until the trigger breaks later than you want.
If I can get the trigger to break within Two or three seconds of starting, usually itís an X, if not, itís at least a 10.
CMP is slower than the old T22 I have been using, report like Tenex.
Still having stuck cases, sharply operating the bolt, reduces the occurrence but still occurs.
At 50 yds to day, all 10 ring and 50% Xís.
This is the best grouping.
There are 4 rounds in the one group.

I think your rifle should be capable of better groups than that. Try shooting some better target ammo like Midas plus- center X for starters . You stated yours was a target model, for sure it should shoot better. Remember the custom shop only guarantees a 1/2 inch 5 shot group at 50 yards. I have 547 sporter in 22 long rifle here is a picture of 5 5 shot groups at 50 yards its best to date. It is not my most accurate rifles but it is one of my better stocked ones.
