Fred, your 22mag groups better than any I have ever seen. (And I've seen more than most) My Anschutz is half as accurate on a good day.
If your point of impact doesn't wander you're right, I bet you could do it. My Annie has a full length stock and tiny changes in the rest will make the groups move.

Darn good shooting at 10x too. Originally I typed a different word instead of darn but it wouldn't accept it! I remember when I used to have good eyes and could shoot well with lower powers.

Gerald this is the way I intend to get it done at 75 and 100 yards....os a sand bag if the wife will getty up..

and yes the true field posisition takes the equipment out and puts the shooter in....this is how I do it most of the time...

I think prone it may be fairly doable, just with my neck issues last year I'll not be finding out, you young spry fellers can tell me how it works out, LOL Sitting with a bipod at 100 will humble most I believe, I may be wrong, I often am.

Ok, I gave this a try. It appears from the bench I'm a pro...however from real world shooting positions I may need some more work. I tried this sitting with my home made shooting sticks. It looked like I was juggling the entire time looking through the scope. Anyway.....a couple of them got away

Hey, don't feel bad, I couldn't do it from a bipod in slight wind. I see your shots "pulled" to the same area. Ditto for your hits. When I've tried shooting with sticks my sight picture shudders like a dog crap'n peach pits.
I think you did pretty good for a first try, better than I could've.

The good thing about this is it points out the need to try out field shooting positions and techniques.

I was shocked at how poorly I did from a Bipod. I confirmed this by shooting groups, the rifle is incredibly finiky & fickle from a bipod, nothing like my centerfires.

I gave it a try with my CZ Scout.

I took my CZ Scout to the range today to get ready for the small game season
this fall. The leaves are just starting to turn here now... Peak color is
Oct. 15th here give or take 5 days & thats when I start hunting.
Any hoo...I am just going to put a few pictures up to summarize my time at
the prairie dog shoot. I did this at 50 yards to simulate how I hunt with my
CZ Scout, built for small game hunting where I live in Mn. My shots are from
15 to 75 yards so thats what I care about & I also like a 25 yard zero.
So I sighted my rifle in at 25 yards to be right on the nuts. Well a matter a fact
I zeroed this rifle in about a month ago & is still right on the money & I had no cold shot flier the 1st shot.....
I had a tricky wind to deal with, 8-15mph switching from three directions or
no wind at all but had three wind flags up.
The 1st target was from the bench to get the feel for the wind & see how
the CCI Sub-Sonics were going to do @ 50 yards. (kind of a bench mark)

That wasn't to bad now I got out my camp chair & my shooting sticks.
Because I have a chair blind that has the same style of chair & the blind just
flips over the chair from the back. I found last year that I was going to have to
use shooting sticks because the way the blind is set up I can't use my sling
for help shooting.....

Now here is the target using the chair & sticks.

I was happy with that...2 in the circle & looks like I would have had 3 kills.
Here is my practice target to see what the wind was doing to my POI.

I did have to use Kentucky wind-age 1/2 of the time.
It was a good time & next time I will try it sitting Indian style on my but with
the use of my sling as a hasty sling.....my favorite squirrel hunting position.
This Super tuned Scout is going to do a number on the little furry & feathered critters this fall.

Thank you 1FJEF for taking the time to get this going.....do you want us to
shoot the target with 6 dogs..????? I was fallowing along with the 4 dog target.
