First Shot Always Off



Log in to see fewer ads
I have an RPR .22LR and ever since I got it the first shot is always high and right 1" - 1.5" at 50 yards. Then the remainder of the group is just fine. If I stop to load a new clip, no problems. But if I stop long enough to reload 2 or 3 clips, then the next one is high and right. I have started just shooting the first one into the dirt bank and then beginning my scoring. I am mainly using CCI Standard Velocity .22LR. I am using a Vortex Diamondback Tacticle scope and set the parallax each time I am out to the range.
Any thoughts on why this happens?

Welcome to RFC! The place for better answers than anywhere else.
Just for grins, load one less round in the magazine and see if that changes it up. lF so it points to something like mag spring or mag lifter/nose up on the 1st rd, etc. issue.

Thank you very much. I will give it a try.
Also, I know there are instructions out there in Google land on how to reduce the spring tension on the 10 shot mags. I will try to find one of those too.
