I've already added this to the gun to start the "dial in" phase in the hopes of satisfying the crowd with the calipers(short version):



and if my scope stubbornness doesn't prevail:

You can think whatever you want.

Am I bleeding or overt? I can't tell.

First off, I can't understand why you are arguing that your gun is a MOA rifle when you clearly haven't proven that by your own pictures. Second, if you were too lazy to make the extra trips to take the necessary equipment to the range to shoot better groups, we are supposed to just go along with your assertion that if we look a the targets with our head tilted a little and close one eye and disregard all those other holes outside the MOA area (sort of), it is definitely a MOA gun because, by gosh, it's close enough for me....

Here is my definition of a MOA rifle- rimfire or centerfire- if it will shoot 1 MOA at 100 yards on a consistent basis. Not once in a while, or every 10th target or whatever rule you make up for the day. And I've had this discussion with lots of guys on this subject- lots of rimfires will shoot 1/2" at 50 yards- in fact almost every .22 I own will do it- but very few will carry that accuracy to 100 yards. So, is a rifle that shoots MOA at 50 yards still a MOA rifle if it won't do it at 100 yards? If you want to make up your own rules then go for it. You don't need our approval even if it only shoots 2" at 25 yards. Just don't ask us to go along with your rules if you ask for our opinion...

Bob

They are wrong.

If the world was flat, cats would have knocked everything off the edges long ago.

Do you have a scope with higher magnification and an adjustable objective that you could install on this rifle?

Your Simmons(?) scope probably doesn't have the parallax set for 50 yards and that could influence your ability to shoot consistent groups.

Didn't read through the thread but to the OP from the original post, greater than one inch at 50 yds is a 2+ moa gun. Technically. But in a rimfire you should triple your 50 yd groups to estimate 100 rather than double.
I was in the same boat with a semi. I was ok with 70-80% but when I started competing that 20-30% cost many points I quickly found out.

So that I don't waste too much time, can you link me to some of your more valuable forum contributions?

If you don't add to my threads...…….. I'm , uh, OK with it. If I become too much for anybody, ignoring me is preferable to litter.
