Issues with accuracy



Log in to see fewer ads
I read and look at all these 22 rifles the shoot 1/2 inch or less at 50 yards. I have a stock k10/22 and with a dollar 99 cent ammunition it shoots a little less then an inch at 50 that's hv ammo. When I do my job with high dollar ammunition standard velocity I keep it under a half an inch but I always get that one flyer. I always thought of you bought a high dollar 22 rifle bolt action it would shoot half-inch all day. And they will with the right ammo. Now after all these year with the right ammo and the right gun half inch is doable and you don't need $1,000 gun thank you

First, it takes expensive ammo, tons of practice and a heck of a rifle to shoot 1/2 groups at 50 yards.

It takes 2-3 times more to shoot them consistently.

The 10/22 isn't the best platform to make small groups at 50 yards, they can be made to shoot well, but from the factory? plan 3/4 groups. Look at this guy, it took him thousands and he never got to 1/2 " at 50 yards https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum...d.php?t=535662

Take with a grain of salt all of the 1/2 at 50 yards (every time) rifles. A pinned bolt (may) help with flyers... Better ammo will help.

Sometime CCI out shoot all the them and sometimes it doesn't.Gego 22 ammo 3.99 a box has one hold it before at 50 yards

I hear ya... Even those rifles ... 1/2 at 50 yards every time is a challenge (how many cards are tossed to only show the perfect groups?

There is a HUGE difference between 1/2" AVERAGE and 1/2" maximum....

A 1/2" average group means several groups around 1". Say for example - you shoot 2 at 1/4" and 1 at 1". That's a 1/2" average...

A 1/2" MAXIMUM is a rifle that's extremely good + a fantastic shooter + fantastic ammo.

That's what makes our superstock games so hard - you have to keep all your groups under some size.... so the Sawdust 1/4" challenge means nothing bigger than 1/4". A 1/4" AVERAGE won't cut it... And that's a challenge - even with a quality bolt action.

I'm happy with an inch at 50 yards when I shoot smaller groups in that I'm spending a lot of money. Smaller groups I get the smaller my wallet gets

A squirrel is about 1 to 1.5 inch target, that is the goal.

So, how far can you get it?

"Most" people are NOT capable of shooting maximum 1/2 inch groups at 50 yards. It takes a lot of concentration to get that cheek weld; grip, breath control, etc., etc., to be that consistent. It also takes thousands of rounds at practice to get that good.

Don't believe everything you read on the shooting forums.

No objections to what you cite for group sizes that would make a 1/2 inch average and the arithmetic to get there, but I can tell you from experience (when looking for "average" group size with 22RF, my preference is for 10 groups of 10 shots each) that one can be at or a good bit above a 1/2 inch average without ever firing a group any where NEAR 1 inch. With only 3 groups, you don't get a feel for consistency of the ammo in question, so your average just means you can't be accused of cherry picking the best group and saying that this is what this rifle/ammo combo is capable of. Just my opinion....
