After a MONTH of non-stop rain, we finally had a wonderfully beautiful day here in Southern Oregon. Sunny, Blue skies and about 75 degrees.
The other night I installed a 3x9-32 Tasco scope on my bone stock Marlin Model 81 TS .22 bolt gun in anticipation of a nice shooting day.
Well today was the day. After zeroing the scope as best I could, I fired THIS one and one eighth inch group at 50 yards.
This was the best group I got today, although my others were almost as good.
Get this, this rifle LOVES the normally crappy Remington Golden bullets! I am amazed at the kind of accuracy I got today using that bulk pack stuff!
I was also obliterating dirt clods at the 50 yard mark, and beyond. I can't do that with my 'Evil Empire Special' 10/22 that I have done some minor mods to, and scoped!
