This is pretty average at 50 meters (54 yards) for me, with my CZ 455 Varmint Thumbhole. Love that rifle!

The classic cloverleaf. If your rifle is regularly making 50 M groups that look like that, it is a keeper.

Yep, it is a keeper for sure! I usually shoot somewhere between 290 and 295 out of 300 (30 shots at 50 meters) with this rifle, competing with Sako's and Anschütz's that cost somewhere between 3 to 5 times as much as as my CZ. I'm laughing my head off, and get a lot of eye brows when they see my cards returning.

A single group is a nice thing to hang on the wall or post on-line. One day, shooting my Martini MK II with target sights, I made a rather fine group that looks like two shots, though it was five shots. I was very pleased but not so pleased when I could never do it again.

LOL...ya, been there a few times.

Not a group, but this is the second magazine out of my 455 American .17HMR. One mag to feel the trigger, then I started zeroing the scope, resting on the hood of the truck like a good ol' boy. Started bottom left, worked clockwise. After the third shot, I didn't adjust anymore. Stack those last three up, and I'm satisfied.




Another gun I've had come close to that is my BRNO 451 ZKM straight pull. Literally, the first 7 rounds down range, at 25 yards with the OEM irons, arms rested over the bed of the truck.



Oddly enough, I've also got a $125 Mossberg 142a that printed as well as the BRNO first mag out of the gun, and a $60 basic Savage Mark II that will shoot some x's at 100, if you let it cool well between shots.

(5 shots/CZ455 Evo/unmodified factory trigger/cheap 3-9x42 scope, duplex reticle/.22lr, SK Std+/50m, ~55yards/front pump pillow, rear unsupported (hand/fist))

seems like there's some potential. other groups looked similar with very tight clusters in the center an a few wild flyers. Most of them called, since shooting of these kind of "tactical" rests with more of a bipod-shooting technique is quite demanding...NPA, breathing, focus on reticle and proper trigger manipulation with follow through are key. Thats why I love these rimfires so much: building fundamentals cost-efficiently while having fun.

I never formally measured it, but those little grey squares are 1/4", so this 5 shot group is about .25" c/c or a bit less. This was from my CZ452 Varmint when it was new and I was experimenting with various brands of ammo. Shot at 50 yards using Remington/Eley Target. Scope was a Leupold Vari-X III 2.5-8 X 36.

While this is probably average for most of you folks, it's two groups from this past weekend that made me quite happy. Both 10-shot groups from 50 yards - 455 Ultra Lux with a Nikon Prostaff Rimfire 4-12 scope, pillared and bedded, and Yo Dave trigger kit, using Wolf Match Extra. Really beginning to enjoy this rifle.

So are these guns clamped into a machine or are they loose on one's shoulder? I know one person explained he was holding the rifle over the hood of a truck, but the rest? Are you holding the gun to get these groups or turning knobs in an X & Y axis with the gun clamped in a bench rest device?

That is very good question
Because all those rifles much better shooters then theirs owners
When I shoot my 308 on 200 yards from bipod it's newer come the same as from sandbags
When I see people shooting from " wicegrip"
I wonder why they shooting at all better buy computer game

Best I've ever shot! Wolf Match Target, CZ Tacticool, Athlon Argos 8-34x56mm, front and rear bags, Yo Dave trigger kit, DIP rail, PRW high rings.

I finally figured out what I've been doing wrong and corrected it. Using scope shadow I found that I wasn't keeping my head in the same place every time. This caused me to have many "fliers" and inconsistent groups. Using scope shadow I was able to tighten up my groups by about a 1/3. It's a wonderful feeling to know that I've moved up a level in my shooting.
