Again, everyone. I really appreciate all the information and help. Everyone has been so helpful and I do thank you all.

I got my new front rest in today. I think it will help. Reading up on how to put it all together. Hope this is the 1st step to being more consistent.

My ammo is delayed, darn it. Won't be here till Monday so I have to wait to try the better ammo.

Again, I will let everyone know how it goes. Been watching benchrest video how to's.

Also I too have the 20" non-fluted, non-threaded barrel. The one that is supposed to be the most accurate.

Thanks again!

I've been considering a Kidd Supergrade and am confused by all the barrel options.
I may shoot this rifle off-hand in small-bore silhouette and concerned that the 20" barrels may be too heavy for me. I'd like to also shoot tight groups from the bench.

Would I lose much accuracy (if any) by going to a the 18" or even 16.5" barrels?

Thanks,

The accuracy advantage that the 20 inch barrels have over the 18 and 16 inch barrels is the weight. Just provides a more hefty gun that provides better stability from being moved during shooting.

That don't mean that a 18" or 16" Kidd barrel can't be accurate because they are.

I'm really impressed that it shot Federal Automatch as well as it did. Although it functions well in any gun I've tried it in, it's also about the least accurate in MY guns.

Excellent point. With my rimfires (mostly cz stuff) ill shoot for groups or various target points from the get go but dont really worry about group averages untill ive put a few hundred rounds down the pipe.

As a few have said SK plus is my go to producer
